So is the last goal here a change or different from the past? (perhaps it was changed in the past few seasons maybe)

Philadelphia Platoons - An exciting team with good relief pitching.
Cap: $80 million, Park: Miller Park, Projected Wins: 90
AAA Limitations: Unlimited
Have at least 5 pitchers with 150+ IP and ERA under 4.50.
Have a closer with 40+ saves.
No position player with 400+ at-bats.

Everyone who has signed up should now have access to the private league forum, and Yaz_Benders bumped the history thread for reference. Keep in mind that over the past 3-4 seasons of the league I've made adjustments to bring teams toward the middle (toughening goals for the most-popular/successful teams; easing the goals for the less-popular ones).

With five owners taking two franchises and the chance that someone who signed up vanishes, I am taking names for a waitlist.

Nice timing kneeneighbor! Yes, that's a good example of a change. Philly was always one of the first teams picked, and its Projected Wins had always been less than the other $80M teams, so the Projected Wins were bumped up from 80 to 90. I also changed the platoon at-bats goal slightly as the previous one (from 12 players with at least 300 AB to the current max of 400 AB) to take away the use of dominant full-season hitters.

In the private league forum, you can go back and see many seasons of objectives and final standings. There is also a link to a SimLeague Baseball thread about identifying AAA players.

I'd actually like to switch to the Bombers.
9/17/2012 8:55 PM
Humm, I am not sure if that is leagle... only in the sense that others may have sent proxies or stopped researching the Speed based on your first pick.
9/17/2012 9:01 PM
Given that it was about 20 minutes and no proxies were sent, the change is fine.

St. Louis Superstars are coming to me.   

Edited to reflect my dumbassery of calling them the sluggers which is a different team. 

9/17/2012 9:03 PM
Thanks man.  I run a few progressives so i understand what kneeneighbor means.  Thanks for letting me make the change.
9/17/2012 9:13 PM
Via sitemail Yaz_Benders grabs the Sacramento Superstars, er Sluggers.

3 picks in a half hour, nice start!

18th?  This is a Conspiracy!!!!!!!!
9/18/2012 7:28 AM
Sssh, don't tell anyone its a secret. ;-)
9/18/2012 12:44 PM
No conspiracy at all ... I didn't talk to anyone else before quickly dropping you to the bottom of the barrel so you'd have even more reason to celebrate when you win the title.

flash1821 hasn't opened sitemails sent over the past 3 days, so I'm opening up one of his slots for now. If someone wants in, post here and you would pick 18th, after Bilfert. If flash returns in the meantime he can pick his franchise, and a new owner would replace his second team (or another owner's second team if someone wants to give it up). Since it's been over 24 hours since the last pick — I knew I should have kept my mouth shut about three picks being made so quickly — we'll skip flash and move ahead with the draft. dahsdebater is up, kneeneighbor on deck. knee, please also sitemail me when you pick as I have proxies from kwyetman.
