MLB109647 - If you haven't seen Ron Burgundy's interview with Peyton Manning yet, it's worth a watch - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgF7uWZMSdE. In the interview, Ron talks about the third Manning brother, Danieal Manning, a defensive back with the Houston Texans. It's a funny bit, but it I saw it as the foundation for a new theme...

Choose two players with the same surname, then choose one season post-1900 for each of those players. Draft a team of players who were teammates of that players those seasons, twisted to any season in their careers. $120MM cap. DH AL only, AAA, no waiver wire. Name your team incorporating the shared last name. Stadium must be one of the two team's home stadium from the years that you choose.
 
Info that doesn't fit in the theme summary:
(1) No clones
(2) No trades 
(3) Any combination of player/teams/year used will be unique to the league, and any future seasons (blacklist - see below). For example, if someone uses 1981 Mike Schmidt and 2003 Jason Schmidt as their main players, no one can put another team together using the 1981 Phillies and 2003 Giants. But someone else could use 1981 Mike Schmidt and 1910 Boss Schmidt. This is only for the main players/seasons. For partial seasons, both can be used - e.g. if someone uses 2013 Michael Young (Phillies), 2013 Michael Young (Dodgers) would still be available.
(4) Players from before 1900 are allowed on rosters, but your main players' seasons must be after 1900.
(5) Your main players must be on your roster - also twisted to any season in their careers.
(6) You don't have to decide AL (DH) or NL (no DH) when you claim your team - but when you enter your team in the league, let the Commish (ssupfoo) know which league you want either in the forum or by sitemail. Only entering the league claims your spot in either league. If one league fills before the other, the only option will be what's left. First-come, first-served on AL vs. NL.
 
CLAIM YOUR PLAYERS IN THE FORUM! You must claim your players in the forum. If you enter a team that uses a player that someone has already claimed in the forum, your team will be put back into the draft center. NOTE: Claiming a player in the forum only entitles you to that player - it doesn't necessarily entitle you to a spot in the league - that's first-come, first-served. As the league gets close to filling, make sure you get your team in so you don't get shut out. 

Doing some research over the past week or so, there are LOTS of possibilities out there. Have fun!
