Although a number of the pitching categories have a mix of high-IP and low-IP pitchers, we could probably use another RP category.  We only have two true RP categories (86 East RPs and soft tossing closers).  We could use some long-inning relievers.  Otherwise, it looks like people will have to use starters as relievers again.

I have changed my category to apply to RP instead of SP. Instead of a minimum of 150 IP, I have a min. games at RP. Yields 26.

Thanks firesalt.

We're light second basemen.  If anybody wants to tweak their hitting category to add a few fullt-time 2B, that would be great.

schwarze: Are you including Baastan's 1998 Astros category somewhere? I don't see it...

OK I'll change my category to

Not so fast hall of fame second basemen


Min games 2nd base = 0 (secondary positions NOT checked)
Speed min=64 max=65

Award = Hall of Fame

24 players

I'm going to be a pain and change to something more complicated:

Left-Handed players from the National League in 1886 or 1888 with >6500 $/PA (11 Hitters) or >8.0 IP/G (17 pitchers).

Not sure if that will be allowed. The combined categories in v1 had to have some cohesiveness (1978 Yankees, Last Name Begins w/Q). Don't know if rules have changed for v2 or not.

I'll endeavour to manufacture some more cohesiveness if necessary...

e: Ok...

1887-1888 St. Louis Browns. 21 hitters 5 pitchers.

Thanks Bastan Redsox... If Guidry got a $500 bid last version, how much does Pedro get?

Some of these themes make for interesting gambles.

Looks like we have 12 hitting, 10 pitching and 2 combo categories.  Seems like we have everything covered.  I'll site-mail lampdogg.
