Am I the only moron in here who can't figure out who we can draft and where they can play under the IF/OF/P-C rules?
IF A PLAYER IS ELIGIBLE AS AN INF AND IS LISTED AS AN OFER, CAN WE DRAFT HIM AS AN INF?  i.e. out-of-position. 

ex:1965 Bert Campaneris is an INF but is catcher eligible.  Could I draft him as my catcher if I had the A's as my pitching option?

This is basically summerfields franchise blend.

This is basically summerfields franchise blend.

That was my thinking when I drafted my team (the first time), but no. It's actually quite different. To use your example, yes you could draft Campaneris with A's pitching, but he could only play at C. Another example: If I have Pirates as my OF, I could draft 1901 Honus Wagner because he has OF eligibility, but he cannot play in a game anywhere other than in OF. Basically, any player with decent fielding at more than one position is going to be vastly overpriced for this league. If you like to pinch-hit/pinch-run a lot, you're going to have to be careful to have eligible players available when your team goes back into the field. I have no idea how this will be enforced, especially in simmed games, when Sparky will use primary positions to determine who subs in where defensively. If Sparky puts Campaneris or Wagner (using the above examples) at SS, we have a forfeit.

The rules need to be clairified before we draft teams or people are going to be forfeiting a whole bunch of games, or we'll all be playing under our own interpretation of the rules. Here's how I understand it (keymaster, please correct me where I have it wrong):

- Each franchise will make up one group of OF, IF, or Battery (P-C).
- A player/season must have a fielding rating at your franchise's position to be drafted.
- A player may only play in a game at his franchise's position, regardless of his fielding ratings.

I vote for $120 and would like a refresh of Toronto.   Thanks.

1885-1900
- You may have ONE hitter and pitcher from those years.. you may not have more then one. You dont have to have one at all. They must be from one of your three franchise... pitcher, from your pitchers franchise, and a hitter from another.

I will display my team example. NYM 1b,2b,3b,ss  ATL SP,RP,C  OAK(i believe) Outfield




*** If a fielder has any grade on a certain position they can play there.
I.e if you have Seattle and  choose them as an infield if  Griffey has a statistical fielding grade at first he can play/start there

On the forfeit factor, i would hate to have to constantly do that. what if this subs may happen after the top half of the fifth... but they must have a fielding grade to be placed at that position. If sparky does it the game will go as is, thats out of our control. However if your team starts a game out of sync you will have to forfeit that game .

(If anyone wants to drop out for the rules not being what they thought, its cool.. thank you for giving it the consideration

hows the voting going so far? Once we have established the cap I will start drafting and let you know if I want a refresh on anything. 20 Million swing can be a huge difference if what teams you use for each catergory
