Don't forget about the Historical fantasy draft...

A few basic questions to think about while we wait for the final manager.
How big of a roster are we wanting to use?
DH or no DH?
What type of run/game enviornment do we want to play in?
Which seasons would we want to use as a player's base stats?
Do we want to let people pick a home stadium (along with the park factors that go with it) to play in?

I'm sure I can think of more. ;-D

1. I think a 23 man-roster is good.

2. Use the DH.

3. By run/game environemnt do you mean what baseball era (Dead ball era, 20s, 30s, etc.)?

4. People shoulf pick a home ballpark.

Let's use the 1980s, the only era where speed AND power flourished... ;-D

Since you only need one more owner, you want me to go ahead and post the draft order?
Yes doctor, I am sick.

Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Let's wait a bit more. I really like to have 20 owners. Tavish, will having an odd number of teams mess up your simulation?

I think that what he means is that he can put all of the names in a hat as well as 1 that says Team 20. No matter what # pick they get, it will then be changed from Team #20 to whatever the name is. :-?

Exactly! ;-D

Plus if Team #20 gets a good draft spot, that might help get someone to join. :-) Granted, they could get a crappy spot too though. :-b
