    yes there are some things you can do to 'force' teams to keep their pitchers in longer. it stil depends greatly on how the managers run their teams though. In sims I ran where i set average pitch counts at around 140 I was able to get the starters to complete around 80% of their games which is close to real life 1901 numbers.

    Another option that I don't think anyone has suggested yet would be to have 2 owners manage 2 teams to get to 12. It's not ideal but it would keep the format as originally designed until we could find 2 more owners.

    Are we going to have a trade-approval process?

    I don't think so. We don't have one in place in CKL and there has never been a problem. Did you have something in mind?

    I dunno - some leagues I've seen do it so you can't have one team punt this year in return for an insane advantage in the future (ie trading 3 aging stars for 3 young stars). MLB has an approval process.

    Also, are we going to have some sort of waiver system? I'd be against that idea.

    I can't remember off the top of my head... are we going to allow trading for draft picks? I believe CKL does, but I don't remember seeing it spelled out in the rules.

    Geez, Rich, do you really think that would work?

    Actually, the commissioner has the authority to veto any trade that would prove detrimental to the league. I also seem to recall that there was proposed (and might even be) a committee to submit any questionable trades to,and I think I was on it. Guess that shows how few questionable trades we've had in the CKL - none to my knowledge. With largely the same group of owners, I expect that would continue.

    Gentlemen - We are now at 12 teams. Thanks in large part to Jack's decision to join. I know I am speaking for everyone here when I say that this league will benefit greatly from his addition.

    I agree completely. Jack is a great owner and a fine addition to this league.

    Since we are naming teams, I would like to name my team after a small city in Pennsylvania. The Asylum Inmates. Logo to be posted ASAP.

    Yeah, I think so. I thought about the Seawolves because I like that logo, but then I decided to design my own. Not so professional looking, but it's mine.

    For those not from this part of the county and not familiar with Jamestown's New-York Penn League entry, the Jamestown Jammers, I've included their logo below. Decide for yourselves. But if you're ever in this area, we do have a great ballpark and those short season A league kids give 110% because they want to be somewhere else some day. And for $5 for a reserved grand stand seat it's a pretty good deal, too.

    Wow, if I had saved the logos from Scott Carter's old PAP League, I'd have one for you. That was one of the team names in that league. Was that you, Ed?

    I covered short-season A ball for an Orioles website this past summer. Didn't go on the road, but I think Jamestown came down to Aberdeen once. It's a lot of fun to watch, and all the players were great interviews.

    Yes, that was me. I think I used Jack Nicholson from the movie The Shining, smashing through the bathroom door. May resurrect it for the new league

    I will be drawing draft positions today and the reverse of those results will be the stadium drafting positions. Please take time to check out the link on our league website for the ballpark factors. we will begin the stadium draft as soon as the positions are posted on a seperate thread.

    My team will be the Lighthouse Point Bums. Lew will get it.

    I don't have any computer graphics skills so I probably won't have a team logo, though it would be nice.

    Just do what I do. Search for what you want through Google Image Search. Save it and use it

    Absolutely incredible! Had this happened when the CKL formed, I can absolutely guarantee that Willie Mays would have been a Legend, not a Knight (well, he was a legend anyway, but not with a capital L). Now the tough decision - who to take? In my mind it comes down to three players: Honus Wagner, Nap Lajoie and Christy Mathewson. Comments, anyone?
