Okay, here is the issue. The way Coach has this league set up is by leagues, not divisions. That way, each league gets its own two wildcards. The alternative is to put both leagues together as divisions and rename that second league "not used". I do not recommend this. I think Coach wanted to avoid having too many wildcards from one league/division.

We can only have two leagues. Normally, deleting the unused team would solve the problem, but we need it to hold players.

You may be right. Perhaps before we had multiple leagues. Not sure. I would contact Guy.

Playing a person at their secondary Position reduces their Fielding % downwards by 50 points - so if they are a C/OF have a .975 Fielding % as catcher and a .925 Fielding % as an Outfielder.

Their DWar stat remains unchanged
