Continental Baseball Association

(Please see note at bottom about PDF files)

I've created a fantasy Dynasty League which assembles eight(8) American cities which do not have an MLB team, two(2) Canadian cities which also do not have an MLB team, and two(2) cities "south of the border" that are hardcore baseball locations. This was a configuration I thought would be significantly different from what I've done in the past and would thus be fun.

Choosing cities that could be potential expansion cities for the MLB also involves recognizing that there are successful minor league teams in these locations. I'm assuming - since this is fantasy - that these teams either relocate or actually become the teams of the CBA.

The teams and their organization are;

Atlantic League

Buffalo (NY) Freeze
- an appropriate nickname considering Buffalo's winters
Charlotte (NC) Monarchs
- The Queen City
Columbus (OH) Comets
- the name simply sounded good
Indianapolis (IN) Arrows
- the one-time nickname of the city's hope for an MLB team
Montreal (CAN) Expos
- Montreal should have never lost their team, so I'm giving it back
San Juan (PR) Sharks
- named after the Puerto Rican gang in West Side Story, and Puerto Rico is a baseball haven


Pacific League

Mexico City (MEX) Diablos
- The real Mexico City team is the "Red Diablos", dropped the adjective
Portland (OR) Beacons
- A light house for Portland was too tempting to pass up
Riverside (CA) Beavers
- Turns out our high school rival was the Riverside HS Beavers, thus a throwback to my HS days
San Antonio (TX) Pioneers
- I wanted a team from Texas, and Pioneers seemed to fit - also a remembrance to the UBA
San Jose (CA) Condors
- a fantasy team name I saw once and liked
Vancouver (CAN) Bears
- Look up Grouse Mountain

Some league rules to start...

1) Canadian Teams will start with Canadian Players. Although this will dilute itself over time, I will force a few Canadian players to these teams to suggest connections with the local player pool.

2) Similarly, Mexico City and San Juan will start with mostly Latin Players. Although this will also dilute over time, I will force a larger percentage of Latin players to these teams to suggest the strong connection to the local player pool.

3) Eventually, I will consider expansion, but I'm in no rush to do so.

4) I wish I were able to create a league where the years were not specific; such as "Season 1", "Season 21", etc. but OOTP doesn't allow this, so I will start the league in 2001.

5) I will likely report results here on a monthly(game) basis - skipping months where little to no action takes place. That should give me about 9-10 updates per season.

6) I will play this league in Commissioner mode, taking the role of reporter and scribe. I hope my writing style holds up to your expectations.

I've got a week or two to sort out the fine details before I get started. Hope you enjoy the adventure...

PS: I plan on reporting this in PDF format. Most, if not all folks should have the ability to open this file format, but please let me know if you can't. If enough people can't, I will post regularly - but the PDF format gives me more flexibility.
