Pick a franchise and use any player who appeared in at least 1 game for that franchise (www.baseball-reference.com/teams). You can twist a player to any season of their career even if it was not with the franchise you selected as long as they played at least 1 game with your franchise. For example you can have Babe Ruth and Ed Walsh if you pick the Braves.
To keep things somewhat even, you will only be allowed 2 players with a salary over $10 million. They can both be hitters or pitchers or you can have one of each. Each franchise can only be used 2 times.
$140M salary cap
NO: WW, AAA, Trades, Clones, Injuries
YES: DH, only 2 players over $10M, ballpark from your franchise
1 random realignment with manual separation of same 2 teams from same division if needed
Standard 24 team league
