Great idea for a theme, I'm in. I like the symmetry of 19th century Billy Hamilton to 20th century Billy Hamilton, as follows:

Billy Hamilton played with Lave Cross for the 1893 Philadelphia Phillies

Lave Cross played with Walter Johnson for the 1907 Washington Senators

Walter Johnson played with Buddy Myer for the 1926 Washington Senators

Buddy Myer played with Mickey Vernon for the 1940 Washington Senators

Mickey Vernon played with Roger Maris for the 1958 Cleveland Indians

Roger Maris played with Ted Simmons for the 1968 St. Louis Cardinals

Ted Simmons played with John Smoltz for the 1988 Atlanta Braves

John Smoltz played with Ryan Ludwick for the 2009 St. Louis Cardinals

Ryan Ludwick played with Billy Hamilton for the 2013 Cincinnati Reds
I changed my mind and will not be participating in the league after all. That means Billy H. Is still on the board if someone else wants him.

I'm not going to play, but I just wanted to comment that Billy Hamilton to Billy Hamilton is brilliant!  Bummer that dcmatcheck isn't going to play that and someone else definitely should.

just a quick update - make sure to include your connection players on your roster, and post your oracle connection.
In other words, everyone in your chain needs to actually be on your roster? Just checking.

I'm going to go back one more and start with Lave Cross instead of Ed McFarland

as everyone is working on their roster, feel free to tweak your oracle connections (not combo players). the oracle tool is flexible, you can simply re-hit the button or eliminate certain players to create different connections. just post any updated timelines here. thanks!
