$80m. Pick your year. (1930-Present) (5 in) Topic

I was looking for a challenge, so I decided to revive ANOTHER old theme.

Pick a year, any year, from 1930 to present.  ALL of your players must be from that year.  No exception for back ups. 

To make multiple strategies possible, I'm effectively banning deadball pitchers by making the years 1930 to present day. 

Divisions will be aligned by year, earliest in NL East, Latest in AL West.  Tie breakers for division breaks will be alpha sort of owner name. 
  • No DH.  No WW.  No trading.  No live play   Clones should not be possible, but we'll ban them anyway.
  • 6/2 below average AAA to help you a bit.  We'll use real names, they will NOT be restricted to your year.
  • No stadium restrictions
  • $80m
That's it.  Simple in concept, but like all of my themes, you will be using different players than you're used to seeing.  Half of the strategy is picking a good year, then you'll be building your team.

Multiple people selecting the same year is possible.  There is no need to declare your year.

Come on in!

MLB104391 - Select a year, wizard will enforce the rules.

NOTE:  Please include your year in your team name.

I'm a sucker for any of your league Len, count me in (plus I'm still licking my wounds from the Devious Weasel league).

Year TBD.

I'm guessing but there is no Salary Cap?

I'm in, presuming there is a reasonable cap

says 80m in the title

It was way to obvious to see there.

Welcome all...

No need to declare your year....   Please put it in your team title for easy alignment.

I added the $80m cap to the first post, if two of you missed it, others would have too.  My error.

Sound fun. I'll try it.

Gents... There is a $100m pick a year league running right now, that is in season 8. 

Rather than compete with that league, I am going to fold this one and recommend that you join the other pick a year league.  The cap is a bit high for my taste, but I might just join it too.

No sense in two so similar leagues competing, and they've been doing this for a while. 

CLOSING and FOLDING... SM sent to signed up owners.
