Manage Your Tail Off---FULL!!! Topic

After managing teams for the last couple years, I've come to the conclusion that low cap leagues are all that I want to play. BUT they are hard to fill. Not sure if folks just like All-Star teams that they can set a lineup and let ride or don't have enough time to manage. My hope is lots join and enjoy... and this league can be continued with success.  

So here's the rules. Low CAP is where it's at. You've got 60-mil. Pick two franchises (1930-current), one American and one National. For one franchise choose all position players and the other all pitchers. No clones. Yes auto- below average AAA. No trades. Ball park from one of your two teams within year parameters.

***NEW EXPANSION RULES*** Owners can create a second team. Owners can also now choose a team that has already been chosen. For example, there can now be two Tiger pitching staffs. HERE'S THE RUB: Owners now place a franchise tag on one position player and one pitcher and list those in the forum for their teams. (I'll keep track in this section.) No other team can use these players from your franchise. This gives first owners of clubs an advantage to choose their favorites first, but doesn't limit a second owner of a club. 

Here's the league number: MLB107582

I consider Houston National League for this league.

So I'll create a master list here for all interested with both their Position Player Franchise and Pitching Franchise. Also included will be franchise players.

Like I mentioned bublooo, low caps take time to fill, so we'll see how it goes. If there's a spot, love to have you.

I did horribly in my first low cap league, but I learned a lot and now I love the low cap. I'll do Cleveland for position and Pittsburgh for pitching.
12/1/2013 8:04 PM
Stadium will be Forbes Field.
12/1/2013 8:08 PM
You are doing quite well in the league I'm in with you. I think this we'll be a fun one as well. Thanks Tribefan!

You got it batgems! Glad to have you. The Indians are now off the table!
12/2/2013 10:35 AM
The Indians are gone... I repeat, Indians are now gone.
12/2/2013 2:19 PM
Lots of fantastic combos left! Pick your favorite American and National league teams and twist pitching and hitting together. Love to have you folks.
12/3/2013 6:55 AM
Four-in. Test your managing skills my friends!
12/3/2013 8:18 PM
Never tried low cap but am a daily checker so I will try with A's hitters(phil/kc/oak I guess?} and pitch with the cards and will tell you they stadium after I research a little.

Yes Yarg, the lineage of Athletics is acceptable. Couple tricks, you will NOT meet the recommended PA's and IP's the draft center recommends. And you will use your assigned AAA. We all deal with this when drafting this kind of league, which also leads to fatigue management. But it's a ton of fun with all the juggling. Again, why I like the low cap leagues. You are in my friend and welcome.
