Left & Right Franchise League $120 Million cap

$120 Million cap
No: AAA, WW, Clones, Trades. Yes:  DH. Pick a Franchise. You have 2 options: 1. All pitchers throw left & all hitters bat right; OR 2. All pitchers throw right & all hitters bat left. 16 teams with no live game requirement to qualify for playoffs. Must use a stadium used by your franchise.  No switch-hitters allowed. 
 
Up to 2 instances of a franchise are allowed but one would need to be LHP/RH Batting and the other RHP/LH Batting. There will be a league of National League franchises and a league of American League franchises. The East divisions will be RHP/LHB, and the West divisions LHP/RHB.
 
Make sure you review Baseball reference for franchise history: http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/
 
Sign up here for your franchise. Having two teams is fine, but they need to be in separate leagues. I will pick 6th and set up the league number at that time.  Update:  I picked sixth and have set up the league.  I will site mail the league number to new owners as they sign up here.
 
While a great number of the very high end hitters are lefties, it gets balanced out a bit by some of the franchises not having strong lefty hitting options in the middle infield positions.

I'll take the RedSox

The Red Sox are yours simisox.  Do you want the RHP/LH Hitting version, or the LPH/RH Hitting version?  Thanks!
7/23/2013 12:11 PM
RHP/LHB-Teddy Ballgame, Ruth, Speaker, Boggs, Lynn, Yaz.  That's an easy call.
7/23/2013 12:47 PM
Thanks simisox!  I thought that was the likely choice, but you never know. 
7/23/2013 2:48 PM
Never stooped to taking Yankees before but this seems a likely spot RHP/LH please
7/23/2013 4:41 PM
dcates, you have the RHP/LHB Bronx Bombers
7/23/2013 9:52 PM
I'll take the athletics, please. Bats right throws left. Lajoie, Foxx, Simmons at the plate and Waddell, Grove and Blue on the mound. Don't know how I'm going to squeeze them in under that salary cap though.
7/23/2013 11:29 PM
The LHP/RHB A's are yours dcm.  You'll find a way.  Definitely one of the premiere LHP/RHB teams out there.

7/24/2013 6:32 AM
