Posted by gigrant on 3/2/2013 11:42:00 AM (view original):the decade idea is a good one, but i was really big on the idea of a year-by-year progressive and don't want to stray from that idea. i do think 12 teams is the answer and i know there will be plenty of PA & IP this way. we will fill in the empty roster spots with some scrub players as needed.
bnicarlson, i believe you have to put mlb in front of the numbers. mlb45783.
Posted by bnicarlson on 3/2/2013 12:26:00 PM (view original):I've created a few theme leagues in the past and, if I remember correctly, they don't show up until the creator fills in his team. Of course, with a draft, this would be impossible so it's got to be some kind of progressive setting.
In the career mode, WIS shows players available for all years from their first season (no minimum AB or IP as in the usual single season mode) to their last season even though they may have been inactive some years in between. Example: C Billy Maloney was active in 1901 & 1902, inactive 1903 & 1904, and active from 1905-1908. Searches by year in the career mode show him available from 1901-1908 even though he was not active in 1903 and 1904. Will we do the same for this league ?
Obviously that's great for players like Ted Williams, who missed years in WW2 and the Korean War. He would be available from 1939-1960 even though he missed 1943-1945 and 1952 and played very little in 1953.
I am OK either way, just want to be sure how we are going to handle this.
