Since crazystengel is taking some time off I thought we could use another league to fill the void.

The NFL, NBA, and NHL have all had their share of labor issues over the last couple seasons. The NBA lost about half the season in 2011 and the NHL is in danger of missing the whole year. This league will "honor" the past work stoppages in MLB: the 1972 players' strike that cancelled about 13 games, the 1981 players' strike that caused the season to be split into two halves, and the big one, the 1994 players' strike that cancelled the World Series.

The Setup!
When signing up for the league you will pick three players to go into the Captain Pool. One SLB eligible player from each of 1972, 1981, and 1994. Each of your captains must have at least 6 SLB eligible seasons. When all 24 owners are in the captains will be randomized and each owner will receive a 1972, 1981, and 1994 captain.

From there regular Random Captain rules will apply. You may use any player season that played on a team with one of your captains. NO TWISTING. There are a couple small catches in this league though:

1) You must use the strike years for each of your captains. Take this into consideration when budgeting for players.
2) Clones ARE allowed to an extent. You may use clones only if the player is available using two or more of your captains.
EXAMPLE: if your captains were 1981 Andre Dawson and 1994 Larry Walker you could use both 1984 (Dawson) and 1989 (Walker) Tim Raines

24 Teams
Cap: $90 Million
Clones: Limited
AAA: NO
WW: NO
Trades: NO
Injuries: YES
DH: NO
Ballpark: Use a park one of your captains called home during his strike year

The three players you select are put into the captain pool. I'll then use random.org to assign them to owners and send out a sitemail telling everyone who their captains are.
