I usually play this league at 16 teams, but last time the league filled up with no problem & there were some owners who didn’t like the playoff system (only 4 teams making the playoffs) it is sims system, not mine! The only choices for a 16 team league are having either 2 playoff teams or 4 - ONLY?
Above Average AAA players (6 batters/4 pitchers) good enough to start regularly, but not good enough to really make a difference, like making the all-star roster or lead the league in batting? You can even select you own AAA players, No autopicks in THIS league!
WW & Trades are OK. No Clones, Science has no business in BB, although I would like to see Babe Ruth the Pitcher, get into an argument with Babe Ruth the Slugger, who would win? No DH - let the pitchers bat! When I was playing BB (LL, High School, etc.) the pitchers were always the best athlete on the team, they were also the best hitters, when do the pitchers all of a sudden (?) forget how to hit?
I blacklisted 18 Ball Parks, mostly the extreme difference makers, like Palace of the Fans & Coors Field – I did not want them to be the deciding Factor in WHO wins this league.
I also Blacklisted Babe Ruth the HITTER (the Pitcher is OK) you KNOW he would be up partying all night in Las Vegas! He would be drinking, smoking, eating, womanizing, gambling… he would Never find any time to play any baseball?
Name your team using a Las Vegas Theme – Favorite Hotel/Casino (past or present, imploded ones are very popular), Entertainer (Buddy Hackett, Rich Little, Barry Manilow, Charo) Gaming Term (Snake Eyes, Big Slick, Bet on Black) – all I ask it that we Please, not have two or more teams named the same thing! Elvis 1, Elvis 2 are the SAME thing - but Elvis, Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, The KING – are different enough to use. I challenge you to be creative! Your AAA can be renamed also using the LV theme! Everyone is WELCOME to join this league! You know the saying… What happens in a Las Vegas league, STAYS in the LV league!
