MLB 2013 Lineup Challenge

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.

RULES:

1. 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.

2. Your team must have a custom name, not from any Big League team. For example: Washington Trailblazers.

3. MAX limit of 20 players per team. (Pitchers are separate)

4. 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.

5. 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

6. 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.
Points:

Each time a player hits..

Home Run - 2 points

10 hits - 1 point

RBI - 1 point

10 Stolen Bases - 1 point

In order for this to be fair, I will pick my team right after the first person picks theirs. REMEMBER the rules while choosing your team!!

---

DO NOT worry about this becoming messy. I will keep track of the points and scores for everyones teams

---

Please leave your team name, location, and TEAM LINEUP in response to this!

---

Please interacct if you want by making a signature for your team and putting it in your signature!

---

If anythings not clear, or you have anything to add, let me know!

---

Please don't just say "Oh this is too complicated and hard!" Because it's not! Just a little thought and effort, and this game will be super fun and totally awesome!

---
HAVE FUN and ROCK ON!

NOTE::::

DH and Designated Runners can be ANYONE. Superstars to losers, anyone!

IMPORTANT!!!:::


DEFINITION OF A "SUPERSTAR"

Definition A:
Has played 5+ years in the MLB AND has been known for his amazing stats and milestones.

Definition B:
Breakout rookie.

Players who do not fall under those categories are NOT superstars.

---
---
---

Every week, starting Opening Day, I will post teams current scores. The team with the MOST POINTS by the end of the season + postseason WINS!
---
---

Please have your team in before or by Spring Training.

---
update;
