Back to the Progressive Theme League Classifieds...hat in hand...

We have one 1996 team available in a 12 team - 2 divisions of 6 - progressive league that started with the 1970 season
 

For offense, some of the players  you get: Albert Belle, Bobby Bonilla, and Raul Mondesi

The pitching staff has a starting rotation that could include: Kevin Appier, Tom Candiotti, Kenny Rogers and a young Jason Schmidt

the relievers on the roster include Dennis Eckersley, Jeff Nelson and Doug Jones with Armando Benitez on I/R returning in 1997


 The 12 team format offers a rather unique opportunity to build a very deep team in a progressive league

 Why play in a 12 team league?   Well, the bottom line is that your division winner will play in the World Series...it's that simple....no worrying about a great team getting ambushed in the playoffs...win the division and you're in the World Series!!

 League Rules

 There will only be 12 teams in this league. There will be one division of six in each league.

 The league started with the 1970 season

 The draft order is determined at game 141. You must have won at least 40 games at that time or you pick 4th - unless you are taking over someone else's team from a prior season. Picks 1-12 for future seasons are determined by the inverse order of record at Game 141. Tie breaker will be the "expected win percentage" which can be found within the advanced standings. The team with the lower expected wins percentage gets the tie breaker advantage.

 No DH, no salary cap, No AAA

 Exclusive stadiums

 No starting players out of position

 Draft Picks may only be traded one year in advance.

 No limit to the reserve list should your player be out a year in WIS database. Only players within the WIS database for a given season may be drafted.

If you would like the team, post your claim here and/or sitemail me

 Thanks for looking
