Captain's League IV #107260

This is a league where you select a player to be your Captain. Then you can pick any player he ever played with to fill out your roster. You can "twist" any season of these players though. For example if you select Dale Murphy, you could use any season of Steve Bedrosian since they both played together for the Braves. You could use Bedrosian's Cy Young award winning 1987 season with the Phillies if you so chose to. You can use any stadium of your captain. You can use any season of your captain as well, be it a 200K scrub or a $15mil behemoth! Use the link below for the easiest possible search! will help.

*AAA 6/2 below average.
*Stadium must be from the season of your player selected to be your captain.
*No DH. No clones. No WW. Trades Yes.
*60 game live minimum. Quick start, Playoff Push on. No transaction deadline.
*200k players can be anyone to help ease roster creation. They must however not play in any game if they are not linked to your captain.

Arvidjosef has decided to take some time off from Live so I decided to try to get this going again. Same format as the past!
