The "On Paper" League Final spot! Topic


This league is a prelude to the 2013 season.  When evaluating teams, we look at the various rosters based on the players' recent seasons.  This is the team's potential "on paper".

Here's my theme:
Select a franchise.  Twist players from the current 40-man roster back to 2009, 2010, 2011, or 2012.  90 million cap.  In the unlikely event that you can't find enough players to fill your roster, sitemail me and I'll see what's fair. 

Then draft manually 6/4 average AAA all from a single year of your franchise:  2005, 2006, 2007 or 2008.
Correction:  6/4 average AAA from any of the 2005-2008 seasons of your franchise. 

Yes DH
No WW, clones, trades
Unique stadium from an active ballpark.

Let's have fun!

I want to have 24 teams in the league, but I'm not convinced that there are 24 franchises that will be competitive here.  I'm thinking that we can have duplicate franchises and put them in at least different divisions and perhaps different leagues.

Different leagues would make sense (max two teams per franchise maybe?). Either way, I'm in.  Thanks.

Hope springs eternal for a Royals fan, I'll take KC.  I haven't played in a few years, how will the AAA work?  Are they actual players from those years 2005-2008?

Kudos to the Royals fan.  It should be fun to see what you can with David Price in the rotation.

We'll take a Cincinnati Reds squad.

I am struggling to get to the cap for these seasons with the Reds - may I switch teams to the Washington Nationals?
1/23/2013 12:47 AM (edited)
I will try the Blue Jays
1/24/2013 1:24 PM
you know what I'll take the Braves.

Hey Data, it's too bad we can't use Mark Buehrle's best season.

: D

Yeah, but that's ancient history.  Can't expect a repeat of 2001 in 2013.
1/25/2013 4:00 PM
most teams don't have 6 AAA hitters from the same year.
