MLB107898 Maris, Mantle and friends 1950-69 Topic

The $120M cap would level the field at equality, as higher caps would favor big payroll teams with big expensive bats (e.g. NYY's).

Sounds like a good league. I toyed with several versions. Joined jacksparks97's league (my idea) but he canceled the league. So if you start one, I might join.

I have no desire to be commish, particularly with my fingers in 8 leagues now ...  ... I'll join this one if somebody else is commish ... I'll volunteer to maintain the sign up board if that's OK ... (-:

As much as I'd love to help you out, the cap is just way too high.  I tried it with severely different clubs, and it's just insanely high.  Good luck filling though man

A friendly reminder that the best versions of Mantle and Maris add up to a bit over $18M. So you only have left just under $102M for the rest of the team, which should be sufficient to get you a decent team. I tried this with both the Dodgers and the White Sox and came up with decent teams eating up the full $102M ...

Very good! Filling up at last. The cool thing about this league is every team is made better by mantle, but maris is the wildcard. will he hit hr's in those other parks?

In my opinion, some of the best starting pitchers of the 50's and 60's were all in the National League ... It will be interesting to see how Mantle and Maris hit against the likes of Koufax, Gibson, Marichal, Drysdale, Chance, Niekro, Veal, Koosman, Spahn, and Seaver amongst a few others ...
