Description—Screw your Neighbor League, league number MLB 104772
Hey, I’m resurrecting my favorite old theme from the past. Check it out.
Tired of playing all the same guys? Do you like to actively manage your lineups? In this league, it’s all about drafting the WORST possible team with a salary cap between $76 and $78 Million (total salary cap is $80 million). After the league has filled, the teams will be RANDOMLY REDISTRIBUTED (so yeah, you’ll get someone else’s garbage and the pleasure of watching someone else get yours). You will then have the pleasure of building your team through trades only (no waiver wire). The extra $2 to $4 million is there to help make trades work so active trading is encouraged (a minimum of 8 owners can veto the trade and anyone can be traded off your team. Collusion in trading will result in a fine of 500,000 and a reduction of the automatic trade veto to 4 team owners.
Other rules: No DH, random AAA (6 hitters, 2 pitchers), No Waiver Wire, SLL only for current series. No stadium restrictions. Max IP per pitcher is 300. The main rule is to have some fun!
Update: my free team will be given to the original drafter of the team with the worst overall record so draft well!
oh, and i forgot to add in the description that it is restricted to players post 1920. otherwise, all the teams would be deadballers.
