League Format: Alternate WIS Format E (162 games, 16 teams, NL:4/4/0, PL:4/4/0, balanced, interleague)
Haven't done one of these for a while, so here goes. $225M cap. Draft any hitters, CLONES OK. Then draft all the pitchers you want, BUT they all must meed the following: MAX Salary=$400k; MIN ERA=4.00; MIN WHiP=1.50, MIN OAV=.300, and MIN HR/9=1.50. ALL PLAY AT COORS. NO WW, but DH and Trades OK. 18/0 WAA AAA to MANUALLY select. For owners with 15 or less MLB titles; limit 2 teams per owner. This will be a very high scoring, high fatigue league, so draft carefully. Let's have some fun.

This should make for a very tough team to draft - three distinct requirements for each player. First you must draft one hitter and one pitcher from each of the following time periods: 1890-1899, 1900-09, 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80-89, 90-99 and 2000-09. Your 25th player has to come from one of the two time periods: 1885-89 or 2010-16. Second each players last name must start with a different letter of the alphabet. Third each player must be from a different team name.
