Cuppa Joe Twist IV - FULL Topic

Cuppa Joe Twist III is now in the playoffs... time to order up another venti four shot americano.

There have been well over 900 players in MLB history who have appeared in just one game... think Moonlight Graham. has that list of players with the years and dates of those games in their "Frivolities" section under Cups of Coffee.  I've played in various Coffee leagues here over the years and they're always fun to research.  This one will play out thusly:

We'll be using players who appeared in just one game from 1885-2012.  Select a player from the "Coffee" list and note the year, date & team of his one appearance.  Then go to that team's page (by year) and click on "Schedules & Results" to find out which team he appeared against on that date.  You can use both rosters for that year to make your team. Use any player that appears on either roster according to, twisted to any season. 

There will be 6/2 below average AAA and depending on whether your Cup of Coffee guy was a pitcher or hitter, each team will call up one (and only one) AAA player and rename them to your Coffee guy's actual name.  Your Cup of Coffee AAA callup must remain on the big league roster all season and have at least 25IP or 50AB during the regular season for your team to qualify for the playoffs.  I will allow each team to draft ONE 200K player if there aren't any twistable low salary guys on your 2 rosters... this player MUST be sent down for your one Cup of Coffee callup.

Blacklist - The 72 Cup of Coffee players used in seasons I - III are blacklisted.

When signing up, list your Coffee player's appearance date, year, team played for and against and stadium played in.

$110M salary cap
AAA - 6/2 below avg but only one may be called up
No WW, DH, clones, trades or live play

I remember that game! It doesn't hurt that Zink was a knuckleballer, and the Rangers are my favorite team.

The Rangers scored 17 that game...and lost. Only time in AL history IIRC.
