We started in 1969 for a second go around with this theme.  1972 is at game 137 as I write this.

This twist-theme league is progressing through the seasons; we started with 1969. We use the top 24 teams each season, dropping the remaining in seasons with more than 24 MLB teams. Divisions are aligned by the winning percentage the teams actually had that season (tie-breaker is alphabetical by city name). It's possible that the teams left out may actually be better "twist" teams than those included, but as always it is Luck Of The Draw so you will play with whoever you get and like it. With this alignment, even the rotten teams have a shot at the playoffs, and we all know that anything can happen in the playoffs. 

Once we are full, I'll use the last 2 digits of each owner rating to give out the teams. The lowest number gets the team with the highest winning percentage. If there is a tie, I'll use the 3rd digit to break it, with the lowest getting the best team. Each year we'll get different teams using the same method.

This is a standard twist league, which means you can use anyone who played for your team that season according to Use any season of any eligible player as long as he made at least one appearance for your team that year. 

Use any $200K player from any franchise any season to fill out your roster. You don't have to take the backups from your actual roster if you want to use $200K players instead. ($200K means $200K, not $201K.) 

The 1972 World Series winner will become the Commish for the 1974 season; we generally get things started for the next season around the 100-120 game mark.

Likewise, the winner of this new 1973 season will be Commish for 1975.
