16 Players, 16 Seasons v14 (Wait List) Topic

16 Players, 16 Seasons, Version 14
Must Choose an All-Star Season
$120M Salary Cap
New Blacklist

This is a 16 team league. Each owner will nominate 1 player that has played 16 seasons* or more in their career. Each owner will draft a different season of each player nominated to be on their team. So all 16 teams will own the same 16 players, but each with a different version of that player.

* Note that if a player played 15 seasons, but played for 2 different teams in one season, that counts as 16 (you'll understand why after reading the remaining rules ).

A regular lineup will be used for nominations so we'll need C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF and 8 Pitchers (at least 4 SP). For players who played more than one position, there will be some leeway on which position you can nominate him at (i.e., A-Rod can be ss or 3b).

Upon signup, list your player and site-mail me which of his seasons you are going to use*. The season you select must be a season where the player made the All-Star team. Since I haven't made the playoffs in this league in forever, I will choose my player whenever I feel like it. Once all 16 players are chosen, I'll post the seasons selected and the draft order. We'll have a 15 round draft to select the other 15 seasons used for each player. Draft order for each round will be based on the cumulative salary going into that round (lowest salary drafts first).

The remaining 9 roster spots must be filled with teammates of your drafted players. They must be from the same season. No Twisting. Players chosen in the draft are exclusive by season so they cannot be used as a teammate. If you draft a player season with 2+ teams, you choose which version of that season you want, and can only take teammates from that team. (This is how a player with 15 seasons, including one multi-team season can be allowed. Or similarly, a player with 14 seasons, w/ two multi-team seasons is allowed, etc.)

Salary Cap = $120 million
Seasons - Any (but must use a season that the player made the all-star team)
No Trades
No Clones
No Injuries
No Live Play
Any stadium

See the revised blacklist below.  The new blacklist only includes the players taken in versions 12-13 (the All Star editions).

And for the record, you don't need to pick a player that has 16 all-star seasons. He can have as few as one all-star season (of course, you'd have to select that season).

To determine number of player seasons, choose Pos = ALL, Min Games = 0, Check "Include Secondary Positions" and set Season Type = Full/Combined (i.e., Rickey Handerson has 29 seasons for purposes of this league).
