Random Franchise Twist XVII (Need 2) Topic

It's time now to take signups for season XVII! This league combines three excellent league features....franchise squads, twist leagues, and a random quality of some sort. We're rolling all three into one league with the Random Franchise Twist League.

Here's how it works: Using random.org, I will get two random numbers that each correspond to a franchise alphabetically. The list of franchises is here: color=#0000cchttp://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/. For example, let's say you get #5 & #24....the Cubs & Giants.

Your team will consist of anyone who ever played for the Giants or the Cubs. But, and here's the twist, you must use a season in which they did NOT play for the Giants or the Cubs. You can have Barry Bonds, but only his Pirate seasons. Greg Maddux, but as a Brave (or Padre, etc). New York Giants are okay too, we'll use complete franchise histories. If a player had played only for the Giants and Cubs, you can't use him.

Exception: You may have one player on your roster from a season with one of your teams, if that's the only team for which he ever played. So if you get the Cubs & Giants, you may use Ernie Banks because he never played for anyone else. But this is optional, and you can only use one such player.

Since some franchises have longer histories than others, we'll use a $100 Million cap so things don't get out of hand. No DH this time, 0/2 random AAA. No WW, no trades, no clones. SLL current series only but not required. Injuries on. Your stadium must be one that one of your franchises used. Random realignment. No two owners will have the same two teams. Please incorporate the two franchises into your team name.

Please be prepared to use whatever teams you get. If you get Rockies and Rays, you'll still have some good players from which to choose. There's no restriction on how many players must be used from each franchise. No two owners will get the same two franchises. The first Hall of Famer to sign up (or any of those returning) will randomize my teams.

It's several great qualities of theme leagues rolled into one....kind of like a big theme league burrito!
