ROUND SIX (One League):


This one’s for all the marbles!  In this “Championship Round”, we’re going to offer up only the 26 teams that have been around since 1977.  From 1977 through 2012 is a span of 36 years.  Broken into four categories, you have:

1977-1985 / 1986-1994 / 1995-2003 / 2004-2012

Whichever franchise you select, you will:

(1) Build your roster with at least 6 players (minimum) from each group – none of which can be from the same season; and
(2) At least one pitcher from each category must finish the season with a minimum of 162 IP's; and
(3) At least two position players from each category must finish the season with a minimum of 502 PA's.

If any team finishes the season and doesn't meet the IP and PA minimum requirements listed here, they will be disqualified from the playoffs and winning the Championship.  No excuses.

Draft order for this league will be determined by the number of wins in the previous round.  Alignment will be in the order teams are chosen (i.e., first four N.L. squads will be N.L. East, etc.).

Here are some other items of interest:

NO:  Waiver Wire, Trades or A.A.A.
YES:  Designated Hitter – YES.
NO:  Clones!
NO:  Injuries – They’ll Be Turned Off.

You may use either full or partial players seasons in this round.

CAP – $120M

Stadium – You must use a park that your franchise called home at any time between 1977 and 2012.

 

THE WINNER OF THIS ROUND RECEIVES THE WINNER’S PURSE OF $310 FROM WHATIFSPORTS!

Just to clarify, Juice, in a few places you say "the top # teams advance"  is this determined by total wins or by "all playoff teams plus the best remaining # teams"?  Basically what I'm wondering is if there's a really weak division and a team is a playoff team but isn't in the top 12 (or whatever the number is) wins does the team advance?
7/23/2012 1:01 PM
Yes, in every case, it all comes down to Wins.  In most cases, it will involve all playoff teams but there may be one or two rare exceptions where you'll have several teams in that league finish with a better record than a wild-card or division winning team.  I don't forsee that happening too much though...


10/2/2012 8:21 PM
What will be the tie-breaker procedures in the event of identical W/L identical for round #2?
10/2/2012 11:23 PM
Isn't there a chance of an owner having more than one team in a league?  Maybe even more than two?  How will that be handled?
10/3/2012 1:48 AM
QUESTIONS!!! QUESTIONS!!! 

I just went back and read the original post, thinking that I had put the tie-break scenarios in there...but obviously, like an idiot, I didn't.  I normally don't waver too much on how I do things though so I'll just do it the way I normally do in these situations.

If it's a tie-break between two teams in the same league, it will go (1) Head-to-Head record; (2) the biggest run differential between runs allowed by the pitching staff and runs scored by the offense; and (3) Most Home Wins.

If it's a tie-break between two teams from different leagues, just eliminate #1 above.

As far as which owners go to which league, yes I'm sure some owners will have more than one team in a league.  I've laid out in the original post where some of the spots will go.  Those last 32 spots are at my discretion, which means in the case of an owner who has more than one team in Round Two, I'll try to put those teams in leagues that that particular owner doesn't yet have a team in.

I'll try to get started on this sometime tomorrow evening but I can't be sure.  Hopefully I can figure it out before this weekend but it might take me that long to do all the math.

BUMP as we're nearing time to think about round four

Juice: Am I right in saying that there's no equal usage restriction in round four? ie: if I had the 1905-06 Phillies, I could build the whole team out of '06 if I wanted (though I'm aware there might not be 25 players on that particular team, it's the principle I'm after here...)
3/6/2013 7:58 PM
You are correct, sir!

HERE ARE THE 26 FRANCHISES THAT HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE 1977 AND YOUR CHOICES FOR THIS ROUND:

 

 

I know that I put "Alignment will be in the order teams are chosen (i.e., first four N.L. squads will be N.L. East, etc.)., but I must clarify that if an owner has more than one team in the final round, I will split those two teams up - one on the N.L. side and one on the A.L. side.

Of course, this shouldn't come as a big shock to anyone since I've been pretty much doing this in every league for the last ten years...

8/1/2013 11:47 AM
Just for clarification juice, I assume for the purposes of seeding (and advancement) to this round, the first tie-breaker is playoff victories (and making the playoffs) followed by regular season home victories?

Ex.     A team that finishes with 80 wins and makes the playoffs but wins zero games in the playoffs will still be ranked ahead of a team which won 80 wins but didn't make the playoffs at all.

I'm also assuming winning a division title isn't any different than getting in via the wildcard.
8/1/2013 5:41 PM
You are correct in both instances.  My first inclination was to say that both 80-Win teams would then go to the "regular season home victories" tie-break but then I realized that even if they don't win any playoff games, the team that made the playoffs "made the playoffs" so that in its own right is advancing farther than the team that didn't make the playoffs.


8/2/2013 12:43 AM
Will the play-in games count for regular season win totals?  I assume they won't be and that regular season win totals are for the standard 162 games.
8/2/2013 1:46 AM
Correct - they don't count as a regular-season win.
