New Season Format and Draft

Congrats to everyone for a great season. Having surprisingly won the Championship I have the honor of selecting the format for next season. OK here goes:

Pick any team post-1970 that had either that leagues MVP or Cy Young award winner. Then pick the team in the same year from the opposite league that had the Cy Young winner if you picked the MVP team first, or the MVP if you picked the Cy Young team first. Caution that in some years the league MVP and Cy Young winner was the same pitcher, in that case the player will be considered Cy Young winner only.

Once you select your team that year cannot be picked by another owner. We will run a 'slow" draft trusting that each owner will research and pick their team in a reasonable amount of time.

You can name your team and park dimensions and carry a maximum of 35 players, 25 in majors and 10 in the minors. I will try to balance North and South Divisions.

Here is the draft order....let's go!
1. Dukeblues - 2017 WSH & HST
2. kopasetic - 2016 CUBS & BST
3. Mikeyyy - 1984 DET & CUBS
4. snoopy44 - 2015 WSH & TOR (picked by vice)
5. jrusso - 2005 StL and NYY
6. pskeane1 - 2001 SEA and ARZ
7. edgar - 2014 LAA & LAD (picked by commish)
8. jimmccoy - 1985 ALL NY (NYM&NYY)

10/18/2019 Can anyone explain this??GusPC13
Could it have something to do with the fact that the Chiefs have only 3 regular RPs? Looks like one of them was tired, and the other one came in before Willis. So maybe he gets some extra pitches before the SIM gives up on him and brings in someone who it normally wouldn’t? Not sure.
