Just your basic 2012 replay w/a twist (full) Topic

Take any 2012 team, begin with their baseballreference.com roster (team members must have had at least one PA in 2012). You may use either partial or full seasons for traded players. Once teams are set, they will be aligned as close to rl as possible. Here is the twist. Based on winning percentage rank (1-20), you get a certain number of twists to any season of the player's career.
See below for the twists for each team.  This will be a 20-team league.

90 mil cap
No ww or trades
Injuries on
AAA 6-2 aa
No DH (I'm an NL purist, but will change if enough AL owners ask)
Use actual team stadium

Lets see who will shock the world...

Reds, please
10/8/2012 9:57 AM

welcome specs and morning.

makes perfect sense, Bilfert.   Valentine's vagabonds are all yours...
10/8/2012 5:06 PM
I'm in.  Miami Marlins for me.
10/8/2012 6:43 PM
not that I want them....but does a team like Houston have 18 guys to twist?  may still not make them any good
10/8/2012 6:54 PM
Teams accepted.
dn - that is why the league is set for 24 teams. I don't think 4 twists will do Oakland justice either, but someone else may...

I am going to throw my own hat in with the LA Angels. Try to help Albert do what he couldn't do on his own...make the postseason.

I think the only way to really make the worse teams competitive is to align by win pct
10/9/2012 3:04 PM
i looked at possible twists for most teams, and I was able to get most to at least 83-85 mil.  There are some nice hidden gems in the BR.com roster that don't instantly appear on the simleague roster.

Cle, Col, and the Cubbies can all throw together functional teams that may have a few surprises.
