I totally forgot. It was lucky #12, mllama54! I'll sitemail him. I also sitemailed dweezil because I need clarification on how he came about 34 players total. The figures he gave me don't add up.
Maybe he's thinking players and not player seasons...

I'll jump in.  As it looks like we need some relief pitchers, how about "They don't give up a lot of hits, but when they do ..."

RP
OAV#: 0-.200
HR/9#: 1-9999

Total players: 30

Quite a spread in talent: IP/162 28-79, BB/9# 1.37-6.87, ERC# 1.51-3.78

I was thinking just players.  To trim it up, let's use only final seasons for players with last names starting with Q, both pitchers and position players.

Cool, cool. I'll get all these updated now. I'm going out of town tonight until Saturday, so don't be alarmed if you don't see me. If anyone feels like bumping this thread, that would be great.

I'm going to sitemail firesalt and see where he stands. I'm also wondering what everyone thinks about going ahead with this league once we reach 16 owners? We've all been waiting a long time for this to fill, and I'm not sure how long it would take to get to 24. I figure we should cut our losses and get this show on the road, but I want your guys' input. I'll also send a sitemail about this tonight.

I want to make sure we all get some good leadoff hitters who will keep our catchers honest. We also need enough opportunities to fill the all important 2B and SS positions. Therefore I am compiling a list of infielders since 1901 who have the highest percentage of attempted steals per opportunity. I also want them to be successful, and 67% is a generally accepted success rate for owners to want their man to attempt a steal. The following limitations result in 35 IFs, all of whom have at least 40 steals.

Title of this category: Runner's going!
Min games at = IF
Seasons = 1901-2012
PA = 500-999
SBA/100SBO = 40-999
SB/SBA = .667-1.000

I would prefer 24, but I'll go with 16. What are we going to do re: the other groupings?

On second thought, with the drafting mechanism, I don't think we get the full effect without 24...I could be convinced on 16, but I'd much rather stick it out to get to 24.

I figure I'd use a random sequence generator, and get the first 8 lucky guys to come up with a 2nd theme.
