Premise: Each team will receive two MVP winners and two Cy Young winners, randomly assigned through random.org. These seasons will be NOT be repeated, which each players award winning season unique to that owner.
Now, the rest of the roster will be built out of 200k players. Then, promptly sent down in favor of the AVERAGE AAA. In theory, the MVP and Cy Young winners should dominate--and that's the point.
The amount of fatigue with the other players will be a positive, since it will keep each manager on top of his team. I see this as a good way to allow the superstars to shine, while forcing owners to be more active.
In the spirit of the league, if you do not like one of the four selections you are given, you may request ONE mulligan. Once you request that, you are stuck with the new player you receive. Also, please do not just leave the league if you do not like the players you were given. Nobody likes that guy.
While I believe 24 teams would make the league more competitive, I would be willing to settle for 16. But, we'll cross that bridge when we get there. Good luck y'all!
