    Season 2 Ideas - Post here!

    Okay guys, I'd like to get some ideas going for season 2! We will have better rosters, which will be great! We also seem to have a core group of guys that seems like they are into the game.

    Right now, that number is probably 10.

    I am thinking we could do a 52 game season with 5 teams in each league, AL & NL. I'll have to set up the schedule but with fewer teams, it shouldn't be too hard.

    Thinking something like you play each team in your league 10 times (40 games), each team in the other league twice (10 games), and your team's biggest rival twice (2 games). So likely it would end up that you would play something like this:

    NL 1: 12
    NL 2: 10
    NL 3: 10
    NL 4: 10
    AL 1: 2
    AL 2: 2
    AL 3: 2
    AL 4: 2
    AL 5: 2

    The playoffs would just have 4 teams of the 10, best of 7 determines who goes to the World Series.

    We could do a fantasy draft, and then no CPU moves at all (only user trades), or we could do real rosters and I can come up with a Free Agent system.

    Anyone have any rules changes they would like me to consider? Ideas? Thoughts?

    We're going to pick up the pace of Season One soon -- I feel like we're dragging a bit.

    I'd like to keep the authentic rosters so we can see what J-Hey will do in RF. And I wouldn't mind picking up the pace a bit as well.

    A set schedule is a must!!!

    List team match-ups, then give them like Monday-Thursday or something like that to get their three game series in.

    That being said I will not be playing season 2... new kid due July 13th.

    I like the set schedule with actual series, makes it a bit more interesting.

    I was thinking of splitting them up into different kinds of series'.

    For the team you play 12 times, 4 3 game series'.
    For the teams you play 10 times, 1 4 game series and 2 3 game series'.
    For the teams you play twice, there would just be two days to get your two games in.

    A set schedule for me is the key. I have a hard time finding folks by the time I get online some nights (after 9pm PST) For the most part, im available after 8pm PST. I dont think I have missed a scheduled game in any of my dynasties so I know I can get the games in. Just have to plan for them :)

    So can you actually set up the schedules how you want?
