Do you love gimmick leagues? Offense? Mathematics? Silly season time!

This will be a "Bring what you brought" league, designed to push offense to the limits.  It's not quite a "break the sim" style league, since the choices available for pitching strategy will lead to less than the theoretical maximum number of runs generated.

Rules:
No clones, no live, no trades, no AAA, yes DH, injuries off, cap $255m (go ahead, try to use it)
All games played in Mile High stadium
All hitters/seasons available
Pitchers - you can draft anyone you want, limited by: HR/9 2+, OAV .350+, BB/9 3+, WHIP 2+

MLB107084

This may take some time to fill, so I would ask for patience.  I will donate a gift certifcate to the team that generates the most runs.

Calling out all of you who made the old Sim Breaker leagues such a success.  Sure it's easier now with the maximum plate appearance rules, but yogsloth has removed AAA from the mix.  Let's try it this way!

Is there a cap
11/7/2013 10:42 AM
The cap is $255 million.  I'm in already, I think that this will be a fun league!

I'll jump in - never done an all offense league before... a quick check shows there's only 29 instances that fit the pitching criteria, and some of those are clones (so it's more like 20 pitchers to choose from - so maybe 300 bad innings at best; this is going to be a blood bath).

you have no one over 69 innings.   bad pitching is one thing, but you'd have all 0 stamina within a few days....that could have been cy young pitchers if you are only gonna wear out low inning guys...and I can't imagine any more of a "maximum" possible runs scored scenario.

Oh, believe me, it can be worse.

I played in a league where the worst six pitchers were mandatory... and were the only six you could have. <200 IP of the worst of the worst.

At least I gave everyone a FEW options!

The point is that the entire pitching staff will be completely fatigued after about a week.  It'll add to the offense.  Yogsloth has created a truly offense-first league!  It'll be fun to see how high the scores go.

My vote is that Bergman will win a Cy Young Award...with a 123.24 ERA!
11/13/2013 1:28 PM
I will give it a try

Welcome to all those who have joined.  I hope you can stick with it while we fill... quite a lot of diversity on the rosters thus far!

This league seems like it will be fun.  Hopefully we can get a few more owners to fill it up
