Anybody can lose a game; we all lose more than we intend to every season, but how many can you lose when everyone is trying to lose? deathinahole has ran this for years, but I've been itching to play in one so I asked if he minded if I got it going again, and he said go for it, so here is...

Rules
:
$80m cap
Must spend at least $75m with a:
Minimum of $30m on offense; and
Minimum of $30m on pitching.

Injuries will be on
No clones, DH, WW, trades, AAA, or live play.

Each owner will need to submit a $15 gift card before the league begins. If you don't submit a gift card you won't get the league # (see following post for instructions on submitting the GC).

For playoff & GC eligibility:
All hitters must accumulate at least 75 sim PA
All pitchers must accumulate at least 25 sim IP

Playoffs will be made up of the 8 worst records in the league. However, once the playoffs start, it will be the team that wins the series, not loses it, that advances.


Gift Card Distribution:

Worst record: 7
Next worst: 6
3rd worst: 5
4th worst: 3
5th worst: 1

Biggest single game loss: 1
Worst Home record: 1

Additional Notes:
If you want to play but want to field a team to try to win (to pad your user record, or try to go 162-0 or whatever...) please let me know up front. This is so I can try to make the alignment as fair as possible by putting a winning team in each league or division, etc... depending on how many we have, so some losing teams aren't at a disadvantage because their league has no teams trying to win and the other league has 3 of them.

If any FGY7 regulars have any other suggestions I may make a few adjustments, but for now I think I've covered the basics...

Excellent, good start!

So to get this straight, the playoffs have no consequence on who receives the GCs?

That is correct, the GC's are strictly the worst records. The playoff teams will also consist of the teams with the worst records, but playoff performance has no bearing on GC dispersal.
