League Format: 2001-2008 (162 games, 30 teams, NL:5/5/6, PL:5/4/5, unbalanced, interleague)
I believe the 1998 Yankees are the greatest team of all time! I am willing to prove it. Bring on the 1984 Tigers or the 1986 Mets, the 2004 Red Sox, the 1975 Reds, the 1973 A's. Heck even Murderers Row! Or maybe you wish the 1986 Astros could have another shot at it. Or the 2003 Cubs or maybe one the Cardinals sign up for a franchise! Play in your stadium! ONLY PLAYERS FROM THAT TEAM AND THAT SEASON ARE ELGIBLE!
