Alright, so here's the deal:
It'd be fun if we all got together and picked AVAIABLE players from the 2013
season ONLY. We pick any city from any state, and we create the premier line up consisting of 15-20 guys.
No more than THREE (3) Super-Stars (Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, Miguel Caberera, Josh Hamilton, etc.) - Use your honest judgment to know who's a superstar. Somebody like Pablo Sandoval or Matt Cain are not super stars, but players like Prince Fielder and Justin Verlander are.
Your team must have a custom name, not from any Big League team. For example: Washington Trailblazers.
MAX limit of 20 players per team. (Pitchers are separate)
Your team must have a starting line up of 9 players, and MUST have one back up player for each position, leaving you 2 open spots for a DH or Designated Runner.
PITCHERS - This is very important. Pitchers do not count as a total on your roster. If you use all of your 20 players, you still can, and HAVE to, fill up your pitching rotation of 4 pitchers. Relievers are optional, but are definvintly a plus. MAX amount of pitchers (starters and relievers): 10
You are allowed only TWO star pitchers, may it be a starter or reliever.
Please don't twist the rules and play by them, remember, this is all about fun.. but still competitive!
Your team will consist of a starting line up of 9 players.
