4/24/2019BEST OF THE REST - BYOT Needs Three (3)Jayslater1223
BEST OF THE REST - BYOT is currently seeking 3 new owners. Its a unique "Fave Teams-inspired" spinoff of the now defunct Cooperstown XII - BYOT.

We are completing our Season 3 World Series and will be picking franchises for Season 4 (we redraft franchises each season and keep records.) The 3 new owners are slated to pick 1st, 2nd, and 4th, so you will have a good shot at one of the easier builds if you so choose. Gimme a shout if you wish to join. PC heavy hitters Yankeebb, Dwayne323 are there, among others...

Where arguably, the 12 hardest franchises to build a championship roster with in Favorite Teams leagues converge together, and each owner takes a crack at building a contender out of each club's all-time roster (since 1969).

Why 1969? It was the beginning of the Divisional Era, the ushering of also takes away decided advantages from the Twins and ChiSox, who's '66-'68 teams feature a slew of premium pitching. It also takes away 1968 (The Year of the Pitcher) from all eligible teams. With teams like the Marlins and Rays, it seems like the fairest thing to do. We can discuss teams/cutoff years further.

Each have had their own set of issues when building a roster out of a set of four years chosen by the owner under the normal Fave Teams format. Whether its a lack of dominant offensive years (Tampa Bay, Kansas City) or hard to find pitching (Toronto, Pittsburgh, Colorado) or defense (Miami, San Diego), Best of the Rest - BYOT gives us the opportunity to try to string together the absolute best of what these difficult franchises have to offer.
