I'd ban every pre-1920 pitcher on this list:  http://www.whatifsports.com/mlb-l/stat_snapshot.asp

That gets rid of many of the cookies (both good and 200k).

Harry Krause. Noodles Hahn. George Winter. Cy Falkenberg. Jake Northrop. Hooks Wiltse. Nick Maddox. Doc White. Ed Walsh. Cy Morgan. Fred Toney. Art Nehf. (these last two are borderline transition era between deadball and live ball eras.

Micki - In the league I'm going to build, people would be welcome to waste their money on Caruthers. 
HouseofBayne - Thanks, added them.
Italyprof - Added some of those guys (Harry Krause, George WInter, Jake Northrup, Doc White).  I don't see the others enough to matter.

Walter Johnson is over-represented too, though hardly perfect

Depends on the cap....

At $80M, the top five I'd ban would be:
Joss, Walsh, Mathewson, Young, Brown

But there are other cookies that have an over used single year:
e.g. Toney, Steele, Nehf, Bernhard, Hendrix

Elton Chamberlain, and perhaps Joe Mcginnity.

Ban the dozen that have been used most often. Otherwise it's hard to justify why you selected one guy and not another.

Dozen, twenty, twenty-five or whatever........rbow923's statement is exactly right.

If you're starting a league you don't have to justify it. If people don't like the list, they won't join.

That sort of means you have to justify it.
