I figure the All-Time Draft forum is the place for an idea like this:
Each participant will create and name a "team" that will hold 13 players... nine switch-hitting position players and four pitchers (RH-starter, LH-starter, RH-reliever, LH-reliever). All pitchers will be fictional and considered league-average for all applicable adjusted stats. All park factors will be considered 100.
We will hold a snake-ladder draft where each team drafts nine players; one for each field position (sans pitcher) and one that will serve as the DH. Draft order will be determined by online randomizer. Part-time switch hitters are eligible. Players will be rated by their career LH/RH splits.
Hopefully, someone can do a simulation for several series of four games each (one for each starting pitcher matchup). Injuries would be set to "off". If we can't do that, we can discuss the lineups with polls.
I'm looking for a max of eight, including me. If you like this idea please spread the word!
