G.O.A.T Divison Madness (8 in) Topic

I wanted to run an experiment that hopefully will determine the Greatest of all Time. This will not be a progressive league but one that I hope will continue for several seasons to see how this plays out. Version 1 will pit the All Time Wins leaders Righties and All time Strike Out Lefties versus the All Time Strikeout Leaders Righties and All Times Wins Leaders Lefties on the pitching side. The stadiums will pit the 3 franchises with the most wins in the National League versus the 3 franchises with the most World Series titles in the American. At the plate the National League will feature the 3 all time leaders in Hits and the American Leauge will feature the top 3 in home runs. Finally, a Catcher will be assigned to each division exclusively. You can go off the board for your full time catcher but they will appear on your team. This will be a total of 4 mandatory players. After you select the division you would like to play in, you may name an exclusive player not listed and an exclusive pitcher not listed. The world series winner combination of players will be blacklisted until 6 world series winners are crowned and then those 6 combinations will collide in the battle royale. First come, first serve on exclusives.  The division keys are also off limits. 

Salary Cap is 140 million.  Spend all you like on your 4 players and your two exclusives.  However, after you have spent like crazy on the first 6 the remaining must be made up of players between 1 million and 6,999,999.  You must also draft a minimum of 10 pitchers.  No DH, WW, AAA

I did elect to put Aaron in Hr's instead of Hits due to his iconic nature in the HR but he is third all time in hits as well. I will draft after at 6 people sign up.

Does the exclusive have to be from the division? If so, Gehrig cannot be my pick. I'd go with Rogers Hornsby instead then.
