1. select your franchise. 2. select a free agent. this FA must be someone who played for your franchise 1950-2011, and will appear as a member of your franchise. For example, if you chose a yankees season, and Reggie Jackson as your FA, it would have to be Reggie from one of his Yankee years.
#3. Once the season starts, we simply manage, until the first place team in your division reaches 10 wins. At that point, you may select any player you want from the WW. Only one single pick for each 10 W or 10 L plateau of the 1st place team in your division. These selections from the WW can be absolutely anyone, any salary, any franchise, any position. If he is on the WW, and you are eligible to select, he is yours.
You do not have to select a pre-season FA, if you'd choose not to, nor are you forced to make a WW decision at the very moment the 1st place team reaches 10 wins. If you don't find anyone you want on the WW, you may hold your pick indefinitely, while you keep checking the WW for a player you desire.
