Going to work on this today now that Father's day is in the past.

We can run with as few as 4 managers, HAL can take other pairings or we can run with only 4 teams.

Anyone else interested?

I will be sending out roster sheets predraft so you can see the player pool and team rosters.

Looking at the competition - well, someone's gotta be "the patsy", huh? But it sounds great. A very good era for players!

Looking like we have a good crowd starting up

Please PM me your email addresses, and we'll start the process.

We should also discuss some league rules, what are you thoughts on:

How many games will I run per night? 7, but I can run more if we all agree.
Roster Size? 25
Injuries on or off? ON
Ballpark Effects? YES
Weather Effects? NO
Fill up to 12 pairs of teams with HAL or only have teams with living breathing managers? Use HAL to round out the league to 12 teams
Each Manager chooses 1 AL and 1 NL Team? YES

There are many more but I'll set up similar to the TSN settings as much as I can.

Also, I'll have a "Managers" speadsheet for each team that you can submit daily, with lineups, strategy, etc.
