Y'all Ready for this?!  We had FUN in Season 21, Let's dial it up again!  Name your team after your Favorite Las Vegas: Hotel/Casino, Entertainer, Gaming Term, ie., make it Vegas Baby - $110 Chip Limit, NO Clones, NO RUTH Batters (Pitchers are OK) - YES DH, YES WW, Trades.  AAA is AA (pick your own) everything else is regular sim. Pack your bags, join the Rat Pack, whatever happens in LV…  ELVIS has LEFT the Building!
 
- Above Average AAA players (6 batters/4 pitchers) good enough to start regularly, but not good enough to really make a difference, like making the all-star roster or lead the league in batting?  You can even select you own AAA players, No autopicks in THIS league!

- WW & Trades are OK.  Yes DH!

- No Clones, Science has no business in Baseball, although I would like to see Babe Ruth the Pitcher, get into an argument with Babe Ruth the Slugger, who would win? 

- I blacklisted 18 Ball Parks, mostly the extreme difference makers, like Palace of the Fans & Coors Field – I did not want them to be the deciding Factor in WHO wins this league.

- I also Blacklisted Babe Ruth the HITTER, you KNOW he would be up partying all night in Las Vegas!  He would be drinking, smoking, eating, womanizing, gambling… he would Never find any time to play any baseball everyday?  BUT, Ruth the Pitcher is OK, I believe he would need 3-4 days rest after all of his partying!

Name your team using a Las Vegas Theme – Favorite Hotel/Casino (past or present, imploded ones are very popular), Entertainer (Buddy Hackett, Rich Little, Barry Manilow, Charo) Gaming Term (Snake Eyes, Big Slick, Bet on Black) – all I ask it that we Please, not have two or more teams named the same thing!  Elvis 1, Elvis 2 are the SAME thing - but Elvis - Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, The KING – are different enough to use.  I challenge you to be creative!  Your AAA can be renamed also using the LV theme!  Everyone is WELCOME to join this league!  You know the saying…  What happens in a Las Vegas league, STAYS in the LV league!

I'm drafting a team, but it may take me a few more days to get in.

I've played the last 5 or 6 seasons. This is always a competitive league.

is there anyone able to accept the challenge of this TOUGH, but FUN league?

I will play and will enter a team over holiday.  I don't know how to pick my own AAA though.

Draft your 25. Another draft center will show up up below the pitchers you drafted. Draft away. Then you can make adjustments to the team you drafted. 

I usually fill the center with a previous team and draft my AAA first.

"I usually fill the center with a previous team and draft my AAA first." - by KRIZ

Why do that?  I draft my 200K players first, leaving room for 9 hitters & 6 or 7 pitchers.  Then, I fill the important spots with players I want to build my team around.  When the cap room gets close to the max, I fill the rest with 200K players.  Those extra 200K players are an indication of the spots that you need to fill with the AAA players!  If you draft the AAA first, you dont know what AAA players you need & what spots need to be filled?

I usually draft backwards. Pick the AAA. Fill those spots in the DC with 200k fodder. Find the players I want for my bench. Then I go after the high dollar guys.
