Derek Jeter, please.

pmwksw, tkcronin, mac195 - Welcome aboard!

Jeter was the guy I was thinking about when I started the league, but when it came my turn, I was actually torn between Babe Adams and Cicotte!

Never thought of Ichiro but I am curious to see how he'll do in this league.

We're at 16 half-teams now; hopefully sign-ups will continue smoothly.  Still a lot of interesting players to choose from.  I'll have to get to work on my back-up plan for Jeter now.

Yeah I think Jeter will do pretty well but I'm afraid Bonds could dominate this league. Hopefully he won't get too many HR parks to hit in on the road.

Ichiro was half of my two-man band in thaneoffife's recent Two-Man Band League (*nonsubliminal plug - Rejuvenated Two-Man Band: Season Two, all first season selections blacklisted, is now available for signups in the Theme League Classifieds). He wound up with a phenominal stolen base percentage but his low on base percent didn't help to exploit this ability. The key to being successful here, in my humble opinion, is being able to match your hitter AND pitcher to the right ballpark. Being dominant on one side of the ball doesn't add up to much if the other side doesn't pull its weight.

What is the salary cap?

fatboydad54:  The salary cap is set to $255 million, although it's pretty hard to get there with the career totals of two non-Hall of Fame players.  We are just using 10-15 different seasons of each player's career, whatever it adds up to.

There are no limitations of the # of seasons for each batter-pitcher?

I will take Smokey Joe Wood. Can I use his outfield seasons?
1/21/2013 10:07 PM
I'll take Alan Trammell ...

Appears that we're up to 18 members, and need only 6 more owners to have a 24-team league.

I did not blacklist Wood as I did Caruthers, so, you can use whatever seasons you want for him.  He may be a bit shy on innings for this league, though.  There tends to be a lot of offense!

I will take a second team.
1/24/2013 9:38 AM
I will give it a try with Miguel Tejada.

Vindex24:  You are welcome to take a second team -- and since this is a snake-style draft, you can pick whenever you're ready.

imladris12:  Welcome aboard!  I don't think we've had Tejada before ... it will start to get interesting now as most of the players who have been used before are off the board.
