With permission from Rated_pg13, I will be holding signups for this league's second season.  Season 2 will include a twist.  Not only will you get 2 MVPs and Cy Young Award winners from your year, but you will also get the ROYs.  

For example 2012
MVPs - Miguel Cabrera and Buster Posey
Cy Youngs - David Price and R.A. Dickey
Rookie of the Year - Mike Trout and Bryce Harper 

Premise: 
Each team will receive two MVP winners, two Cy Young winners and two Rookies of the Year, 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 MVPs, Cy Young winners, and ROY 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 the year you are given, you may request ONE mulligan.  Once you request that, you are stuck with the new year you receive.  Also, please do not just leave the league if you do not like the year you were given.  Nobody likes that guy.

This will be a 24 team league...owners are encouraged to have two teams if they like.

-No WW/DH
-40 min. for playoffs
-YES to Trades
-Ballparks will be from one of your award-winning players
-AVERAGE AAA (30/20)

MLB's Reliever of the Year award has never been presented; 2014 is the inaugural. There was a Delivery Man of the Year 2005-2013, but not before that. There's also the Rolaids award, which started in 1976. Which are you referring to, and what about prior to 1976? Rookie of the Year started having two winners in 1947. Cy Young only had one winner until 1967.

What seasons are eligible to be assigned? 1976-present would produce a whole lot of seasons of some pitchers (Clemens, Carlton, Palmer, Martinez, Maddux).

Good point...we will go 3x3 (MVP, CY Young and ROY) and make the league from 1967-2013.

Thx for pointing out the concerns.
1. Each team gets two MVPs two Cy Young winners and two ROY's.
2. Since two Cy Young winners were not chosen until 1967 we will start the league there.
3. If the Cy Young winner was also the MVP that year you will receive the MVP runner up.
