I am starting a new league based on the 1926 season. I am still filling out the rosters, but people have already found the league and are requesting teams. In 1926 each league had 8 teams; we will run with the first 6 or 7 teams chosen from each league. Here is a chance to mold your team from the beginning, rather than trying to resuscitate a roster someone else has destroyed. I think it is league # 1649.

Any team marked "Old Bobcat", except for the A's, are currently available.

SCM yeah that's a good point - you're probably right then the back-end steals and steals against non-catchers balance out the teams that are trying to steal 3rd or ARE stealing against plus arms.... saying most people don't isn't necessarily true, remember there are a LOT of bot teams now, plus people who just don't change that setting.

Anyway, yeah, the big challenge here like we've discussed is that SB success rate just isn't a valid stat UNLESS we start restricting how often a player can steal. (And the argument that we don't do that with At Bats we've discussed before - it's not Apples to Apples....) So the guy who had a 67% rate on 14 attempts, that's fine, but then you're only going to be allowed to have him steal 14 times all season. Is that better? I don't know, I'm torn honestly. I think I've said before if I were rebuilding the sim from scratch I would probably build it that way, more akin to the real steal attempts by a player. A "PC 2.0" engine, that is probably how I'd do it. But even there, the problem is we don't manage the games, so we don't get to pick when we burn one of those 14 attempts.

BTW, I'd probably change at bat logic too... like if you had a guy who only batted 120 times in a season, once he goes over that, he starts getting penalized.

But again, these are things if I change them willy nilly, there would be a mutiny.
