Build your roster with players from six random pages assigned to you at www.baseball-reference.com. Salary cap is $90m, but teams will be aligned in divisions based on payroll, so there is some incentive to stay short of the cap. AAA players will be assigned by the Commissioner as stand-ins for players who did not have a SIM-eligible season; ONLY the AAA players assigned by the Commissioner and drafted by you can be used during the season.

Yes you read correct. Everything else goes! DH, clones all yes. Build it and win and never worry about a Joss or a Walsh with their nerf balls negating your power numbers. All pitchers you draft MUST be from 1921-2019. Hitters can come from any season you want. All stadiums are fine. 6 WAA hitters and 6 WAA pitchers manually drafted to help you out.
