$120 Million capNo: DH, AAA, WW, Clones, Trades. This is a 16 team league with one instance of each franchise that existed during the whole time frame of 1920 through 2013 (expansion franchises from 1961 onward are sitting this one out). The Browns/Orioles and Senators/Twins have up to 4 twists, the Yankees no twists, and everyone else up to 2 twists. As long as the year you use is within the 1920-2013 range the twist can come from outside of it. For example: Tris Speaker can be twisted onto the Red Sox even though he only played on the Red Sox prior to 1920. You just need to use a season of his that was 1920 or later. 
 
Players can be twisted to any franchise they played for as listed in baseball reference. That broadens it a little from franchises just listed in WIS for players.
 
First come, first serve on signing up here for franchises. Must use a stadium used by your franchise during the 1920-2013 time frame.
 
I’ll set up the league and send out the league number once there are 7 teams signed up.
 
You can have 2 teams, but one must be NL and one AL.

 
Make sure you review Baseball reference for franchise history: http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/
 
The league/division breakdown will be:
 
NL East
1. Pirates (2 twists)-rback
2. Reds (2 twists)-ghsisler
3. Braves (2 twists)-Wonder Boys
4. Phillies (2 twists)-good_beef
 
NL West
1. Cardinals (2 twists)-calhoop
2. Cubs (2 twists)-busterglen
3. Dodgers (2 twists)-Vindex24

2. Red Sox (2 twists)- Yaz2Schill

Hi rback!  You are not selecting a single year.  You get any player who played for them in any year during 1920-2013 (though no clones) plus adding the twists (which would be for seasons played with other teams).  So you if you pick the A's, you can get Lefty Grove from 1929, Vida Blue from 1971, Mickey Cochrane from 1931, Jose Canseco from 1988, etc., plus twist a Ty Cobb season from the early 1920s (when he was on the Tigers) onto your roster since he played for the A's at the end of his career.  You'd get 2 total twists (though not madatory), and every other player would need to have played for the A's in any sesaon from 1920 to 2013.

Correct.  You need to use a stadium that your franchise played in during at least one season of the 1920-2013 time frame.
