Give Pete Incaviglia a chance - 23 in, 1 to go Topic

Getting into baseball in the '80s, my favorite players for some reason was anyone on the Redsox, Vince Coleman, & Pete Incavilgia.  Well, as it is, plenty of Redsox get used, and Vincent Van Go shows up quite a bit too.  But not Ol' Inky.  So, this league is designed to use him and any other not-good-enough-to-face-Joss type hitters and to give them a fair shake for once.

Pete's career high in Avg is .274, Obp .332, Slg .530.   So, every hitter in this league must have numbers that are worse than that, so a .270 avg, .325 obp, and a .525 slg are the limits on the batters.  The only exception is Pete.  He must be on your roster.  And you can use ANY season of his.  Even one of his "career years'.

The pitching, well, to give these all-or-nothing hitters a chance, all pitchers must have an Era at or over 3.00, a Whip at or higher than 1.20, an OAvg of .250 or higher, and have at least a .50 hr/9 stat or greater.

Inky almost kicked my *** at a rangers/ red sox game back in 1990. I had to run away, so count me in.

I remember using Inky while playing Strat-O-Matic in the 80s. I'll join. Long live the 80s!

I sure hope this league fills.

are there any year/season restrictions when selecting players, or do they just have to meet the statistical criteria?
10/20/2012 5:09 PM
Just can use any year
