Realistic Modern Single Season Twist  League  1994-2013

I've always loved single season twist leagues.  I've had thoughts about this league in the back of my mind awhile, so I'm giving it a whirll.  Hope it fills!

In this league, you will select one team from one season.  You will build your 25 man roster using any player that appeared in one game for your selected team that year.   Use for determining player eligibility.   Eligible player season will be from that year +/- 1 year.  So if you choose the 1995  Indians, you can use either the 1994,1995, or 1996 Omar Vizquel.  Teams that are selected from the 1994 season will use 1993-1995 and selected teams from 2013 will use 2011-2013.  You will also build a minor league of any 6 players/4 pitches from your 3 season window.  ( Any team).  Also, after the 1st simulated game, your cap will be bumped up by 5 mil which can be used for ONE waiver wire claim of any player from 1994-2013.  Trade are unlimited and encouraged.   The intent behind this league was to make something a little more realistic, modern, and use players not commonly used in LIVE leagues. 

Salary Cap:                                     $ 80 mil.  $ 5 mil added after 1st simulated game                      
Player Seasons:                           1994 - 2013.  All players must have appeared in one game for your team that season.
AAA:                                                 6/4 Below Average.  Manual draft.  Players MUST be from your 3 season franchise window
Waiver Wire, Clones, DH:           One WW claim per team.  Player season must be from 1994-2013.  Cannot claim existing player on your team. (upgrade)
Clones, DH:                                    No
Trades:                                            Yes.  Trades cannot be conducted that use identical players regardless of seasons.
Number:                                         24
Trades                                            Only one specific team per league.  I.e. There will only be one 2001 Arizona D'backs squad.
Home Park:                                   Must be one used by your franchise that season
Divisional Alignment:                  As close to today as possible.  Newer franchises will be moved first if necessary.
LIVE game requirements:         40.  Playoffs must be played live.

question, what about a traded player? ie. if you choose 1997 and a player from that season had a better season for another team in 1996?

I think what he means is if you pick 97 Yankees, but a player from the 97 Yankees played with different team in 96, can you use his 96 season?

Yes, in your 3 season window, you can twist your selected player to +-1 year regardless of the team he played for.

Example, if you picked the 97 Yanks, you can use Charlie Hayes 1996 Pirates season, 1997 Yankees season, or 1998 Giants season.
