Welcome to the BNBL (Bad News Bears League)

Ken Harrelson is on his way to becoming the Season 5 BNBL MVP
The BNBL is the league for mediocre players to play against their peers.
See how these "Average Joes" might have fared if they didn't have to face Nolan Ryan, Sandy Koufax, Lou Gehrig, or Babe Ruth.

Hitters have to have:
less than 1.000 combined AVG and OPS
but also have a .275 AVG or lower
and less than .800 OPS

Pitchers need to have a WHIP of 1.40 or more.

Also, we’re going to stick to pre-1990 players for Season 1 so that we have some room to grow with new imports each year. If your favourite players are more recent, just be patient and they’ll be available soon!

The Basics:
16 Teams
8 teams make the playoffs (4 division winners and 4 Wild Cards)
(gives more teams a chance and keeps it interesting!)
162 Game Schedule
No progressions
Fatigue: On
5-Man Rotation
Minimum ABs/IPs: 50 ABs (no IP minimum)
Any season pre-1990 that fits the minimum/maximum requirements (see above)
Players will retire after 13 seasons (there are exceptions to that - see Rules Page)
See Rules Page for more information

9/17/2019FBI Investigates BNBL for Collusionragingsol
AP (Reuters), Cleveland: The FBI has served a search warrant at the BNBL League Offices, confiscating every computer and cell phone of all employees in the League Office. The investigation alleges collusion among 15 BNBL GMs, and since the league office also serves as the Cleveland Charlie Browns team headquarters, the FBI says it had no choice but to raid the offices and confiscate all electronic communications equipment.

When asked for comment, the BNBL league office sent out a telegraph in morse code that this reporter is still trying to decipher. Thus far, the message seems to read, "If, when reporting, you get access to the food served to Gorillas players, please poison their meals. We want to take them out, en masse. Oh, Canada, did I forget to say that this is off the record? Off the record! Off the record!"

In a related story, the Gashouse Gorillas suspend their enitre training and nutrition staff, with pay.

Loquishu de'Brickashaw, spokesperson for the Gashouse, says, "The suspensions will remain in place until the FBI completes their investigation into possible collusion among BNBL GMs. The Gashouse, frankly, believes the FBI theory that 15 BNBL GMs colluded to weaken the ankles and hamstrings of Gashouse players. We, in the Gashouse, tend to believe the strength of the injury evidence as implicating the rest of this highly competitive and ruthless league of collusion. We have opted for paid suspensions as we do not want to have banana on our faces and pot dust in our bongs should the investigation, as we expect it will, prove collusion and exonerate our training staff. Why is this beef steak greenish in color?"

There is no waivers in daily draft. There’s just a delay to when the games start so games don’t start suddenly on everyone.
