12 Players, 12 Seasons (v3) - Full Topic

12 Players, 12 Seasons, Version 3
Must Choose an All-Star Season
$120M Salary Cap

This theme is essentially two seperate 12-team leagues, with seperate player pools and seperate drafts, but combined into one standard 24-team league. When you sign up, you must select which league (AL or NL) you want to play in.  There are no AL or NL player requirements or difference in rules.  From this point forward, all rules will be stated in terms on a 12-team league.

Each of the 12 owners will nominate 1 player that has played between 12-15 seasons* in their career. Each of the 12 owners will draft a different season of each player nominated to be on their team. So all 12 teams will own the same 12 players, but each with a different version of that player.

* Note that if a player played 11 seasons, but played for 2 different teams in one season, that counts as 12 seasons (you'll understand why after reading the remaining rules ). 

Of the 12 nomimated players chosen, we need 6 hitters and 6 pitchers.  The six hitters should cover 6 of the standard 8 positions (i.e., we don't want three SS nominated).  For players who played more than one position, there will be some leeway on which position you can nominate him at. 

Upon signup, list your player and site-mail me which of his seasons you are going to use*.
The season you select must be a season where the player made the All-Star teamSince I haven't made the playoffs in this league in forever, I will choose my player whenever I feel like it. Once all 12 players are chosen, I'll post the seasons selected and the draft order. We'll have an 11 round draft to select the other 11 seasons used for each player. Draft order for each round will be based on the cumulative salary going into that round (lowest salary drafts first).

Here's where it gets fun...
Your remaining 13 roster spots must be filled with teammates of your drafted/nominated player(s). They must be from the same season as your drafted/nomainted player. No Twisting. Players chosen in the draft are exclusive by season so they cannot be used as a teammate. If you draft a player season with 2+ teams, you choose which version of that season you want, partial or combined, and can only take teammates from that team (the version you don't take is off the board).  This is how a player with 11 seasons, including one multi-team season can be allowed. Or similarly, a player with 10 seasons, w/ two multi-team seasons is allowed, etc.  Unlike the 16x16 theme, you must roster at least one teammate per player drafted.  For the mathematically challenged, that means one of your players (either the guy you nominated or one of the drafted players may use 2 teammates).

Salary Cap = $120 million
Seasons - Any (but must use a season that the player made the all-star team)
No Trades
No Clones
No Injuries
No Live Play
*** Stadium must be the one your nominated player played in, during the season you use.

And for the record, you don't need to pick a player that has 12-15 all-star seasons. He can have as few as one all-star season (of course, you'd have to select that season).

To determine number of player seasons, choose Pos = ALL, Min Games = 0, Check "Include Secondary Positions" and set Season Type = Full/Combined (i.e., Rickey Handerson has 29 seasons for purposes of this league).
