my thought, yes, there's a random assertion (look!  a squirrel!), is that the cap would have to be lower than $120 mil. I would be into $100 mil. otherwise the half dozen loaded franchises, that have always been loaded would kick ***. suppose you got the Senators, Indians, Phillies or Braves? you have to plan on having at least 15-20 decent players available to at least be somewhat competitive. oh yes you say, oh the Phillies (for example) have a rack of studs. suppose their offense starts getting poached? think of their pitching. YUCK. My thought for public discourse is, at what point do we think of changing the years in our rule V? or do we? eventually, every team will have a decent year out of someone in every position that scarcity wont be an issue. just throwing it out there.

Rick, the draft usually does a pretty fair job of leveling the playing field...

I think I'll throw it together, and do a trial run with a $100M cap....We can always tweak later.

I'll tinker with it, and release it after we get this season underway.

As for this league, my 2 cents would be to leave it as is, if anything tinker with the salary cap...

I seem to remember playing at least one season like that, but interested lacked.  Not to say it couldn't work.

I don't think we ever did an earlier Rule V draft. Perhaps a franchise league with earlier players...
We did an earlier Rule V but it was a bit different. I think you had 25 season stretches of different franchises to choose from. Wasn't the same 25 years for each franchise and some franchises had multiple options.

I like the current league format with the 120m cap

Oh I wish all the old leagues were archived...I do remember the 25 season theme...I remember it giving me a headache.

Thought we'd get a little farther last night.  I'll put together a schedule for tomorrow to finish up the franchise draft.

here, waiting for DD to make his selection

Yeah, Disco has a weird work schedule...probably sleeping after his night shift right now.

Guessing you've gotten very few proxies, sin?
10/11/2012 12:41 PM
None.  I am getting quite a few keepers from those who have already selected.

Just for win, I quickly calculated each franchises total wins between 1920 and 1960, inclusive.  Here is the list.  (baseball-reference shows wins for all franchises on one page.  You have to look up each team seperately for losses).

NYY 3884
STL 3513
CLE 3390
LAD 3388
SFG 3383
DET 3221
CHC 3164
PIT 3156
CHW 3050
CIN 3037
BOS 3033
MIN 2988
ATL 2964
OAK 2813
BAL 2759
PHI 2557

10/11/2012 5:09 PM
Funny thing is, we all know who Disco is gonna pick...my money says it's the Pirates again.
