Szcz, I entered the '27 Yankees, not the '82 Yankees.

2006 Cubbies, post-Bartman

The Cubs will have all kinds of MIF to deal for a power bat @ 1B/OF. Neifi Perez, Angel Pagan (yes, he had 1 good season), Theriot, Todd Walker, Cesar Izturis, Tony Womack.

Goes against everything I believe in, but I will take the 2012 Boston Red Sox.

Josh, Bartman was in 2003, so 2006 would be post-Bartman, unless you mean the twist years for each player will be pre-Bartman.

In that case I'll give those '12 Sox a whirl.  Not the greatest starting pitching group in the world, but they can sure hit...

Hope you don't turn into a self-serving, self-centered, paranoid nut case as manager of that group dahs :)
8/13/2013 8:42 AM
I'll need 25 cabs for 25 players for my 1987 Redsox
8/13/2013 9:55 AM
Gimme the 1914 White Sox 70-84 (.455)
