The Boston Red Sox have completed the biggest turnaround season in baseball history. No other World Series champ had a win pct the year before as low as Boston's .426.

The league is simple.  You choose a last place team from 1983-2013.  For example if I chose the 2012 Houston Astros, my roster would breakdown like this:

-20 players from the Houston Astros 2012 team (using those players 2013 seasons - even if they were not with the Houston Astros the following year.
-3 hitters from any team from the 2013 season
-2 pitchers from any team from the 2013 season

100 Mil Cap
No WW or trades
6/4 average AAA
50 game live requirement for playoffs
Must play in the home stadium of your team

Let's see if you can construct the next Boston Red Sox success story!

They would have done it in real life if Lonnie Smith knew how to run bases. One of the first WS I remember watching (vaguely remember the Gibson HR & the earthquake at the bay)
