Let The Random Experiment Begin

Been wanting to try this for some time, so this morning I finally decided to give it a shot. I just hope it works.

I'm starting a 12 team, one subleague, no divisions Random Debut league, starting in year 1906. To start my player draft pool will consist of players from 1901-1913. When I get to 1914, I will expand the player pool to use players from 1901-1935. Then in 1936 from 1901-modern day.

Let's see what happens.

Looking forward to reading more about it! I’ve thought of doing something similar, just haven’t done so yet

I'm enjoying this setup so far. I'm using 4 man rotations to start, since that is what the game defaults to. Waddell, Hahn, Joss, Mathewson, Johnson and Cy Young are all pithing in this league. I'm using the "Eugene Church" method to start, so I can get to know all the teams. Using this method means I'm basically watching 18 innings per day or 2 games, barring any extra inning games.

Sounds fun, considering setting something up similar to this to run along my other random debut league.

Are you using 1906 strategies and stats output and progressing accurately or are you locking in a more modern year like you sometimes do with your other randoms?

I'm using 1906 settings and I'm going to let the league progress according to history. That's one of the reasons I'm using players from 1901-1913 to start and moving the goalposts on the "maximum years" as I reach certain points. No way do I want to see a Dave Kingman or a Richie Sexson play deadball games. Didn't want Ruth to appear until at least 1914 or later. I want Williams and DiMaggio 1936 or later as well.

Just wrapped up April 1906 last evening. So far it looks like Boston is the team to beat, but New York and Milwaukee are looking strong as well. With the setup I'm using the top 3 teams qualify for the post season. The 2nd and 3rd place teams meet in a best of 3 series while the 1st place team waits to face the winner. The 2nd place team plays host to the entire best of 3 wildcard series. The League championship series is a best of 9.

What does Boston's team look like?
Seems like you are going with real MLB teams in this league

No, not using real teams. I used OOTP's random nickname feature when creating the league. I edited two teams locating one in Baltimore and the other in Milwaukee. Then deleted 4 teams.

Theses are the cities with teams in my league

Baltimore
Boston
Brooklyn
Chicago
Cincinnati
Cleveland
Detroit
Milwaukee
New York
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
St. Louis

Since I used the random nickname feature it will probably take me all of season one to memorize them all. Ugh!
