Diamond Mind League using all-time great players disk
Thinking of starting a Diamond-Mind league using the all-time greatest players disk.
I was thinking something like maybe using the DM disk, and the salaries from one of the ESPN or Fox leagues to keep teams from being entirely made up of Hall of Famers, etc..
A couple of other ideas . . .
All games are played head-to-head, no simming (except for vactions, etc.). Maybe play two series a week, probably wouldn’t mean more than 2-3 hours a week in terms of a time commitment, some people spend that much time just tweaking their MP anyway . . .
Also I would want to rate all of the players for injuries, based on their career length . . . something like less than 1620 games “Prone”, more than 2430 games (1.5 * 162, or 15 full seasons) “Iron”, everyone else “normal”. Open to debate on the appropriate numbers. Use translated IP from Prospectus for pitchers, maybe something like under 2500 prone, over 4000 Iron? For relievers come up with something based on career games or full seasons or something.
I think it’s be a lot of fun and the cool thing is, we wouldn’t need a certain number of teams, there are 1700 players on the disk IIRC, so we could set the structure once we know how much interest there is.
Anyway, it’d probably be a lot of fun, I guess just post here or send me an email if you are interested . . .
