1980 OFP - Need 1 for the Dodgers Topic

We need two owners for our 1980 single season progressive league.  We are entering our 12th season.

16 team league
No DH or AAA (supplied for trades only)
League Format:  Alt WIS Format B (4/4/4/4--4 total playoff teams:  Balanced schedule and No Interleague Play)
No I/R restrictions
Stadium must be the current stadium of one of the original 16 baseball franchises.

Win Floor Rule (note:  this has only come into effect once in 11 seasons)
Win Floor will be set at 35 at the 120 gm mark. If you win 33-34 games, you lose 2 spots in round 1, If you win 30-32 games, you lose 4 spots in round 1, if you win 28-29 games, you lose 6 spots in round 1, if you win 25-27 games, you lose 8 spots in round 1, and if you fail to win at least 25, you bump to the end of round 1.

Example:  Team A wins 32 games and Team B wins 34.  All other teams win at least 35 games.  Team A loses 4 spots and will therefore pick 5th overall (1st >> 5th).  Team B loses 2 spots and will therefore pick 4th (2nd >>4th).  The rest of the draft order is determined by wins at the 120 game mark.  In this example, the first overall pick would go to the team with the worst record who had at least 35 wins.  Team B has 2nd pick, then 2 more picks, then team A with 5th overall pick.  Win floor is not in effect for all other rounds.

One owner went MIA (in a lot of leagues I hear) and one owner wanted to go back to 1 team in the league after a couple of seasons with 2.  Great league ... great owners.  20 games left.  We usually start drafting during the playoffs and have a quick turnaround.  Both teams have good talent.  Sitemail me with questions.  First come first serve.  Claim your team by posting in this thread.  Thanks for considering this league!

are rosters 25?  or is there any manual AAA drafting?

where will Dodgers pick in draft?

Rosters are 25.  Unlimited keepers.  Dodgers pick 12th.  AAA is below average and only supplied for unbalanced trades (player for draft pick).  Let me know if you have any other questions.
