    There are too many variables and the spread is too small, I think for there to be a considerable difference in this format. Its very possible for someone who grabbed the 25 coolest names to make it to the finals, and the analytical regressor not make it. It's fun. Some of us think we know what we're doing. But, nobody should have any real good or bad expectations.

    I just wanted to pick a 'fun' team based on how I define fun in the runs scarce FA era. Love the concept but didn't worry about it enough to think about it more than 15 minutes. As slick notes, there are a ton of variables going in.

    You've got me beat. Pretty sure I'm playing Rock, Paper, Scissors.

    I love that I can play with a different style of team, without investing the time to build a franchise around it.

    Even though my entry is 100% for fun, I wish I had gone a different route and tried something way out there. Either all offense or all pitching just to see how it would work out (or not work out haha).

    We considered doing something like this if we needed more admin entries to fill it up. One being a "most commonly picked" team and a "least commonly picked" team lol.

    I find it intriguing enough that I returned to the game after a five-year hiatus

    I like the idea... I enjoy putting teams together, and this will also help me understand better what kind-of teams flourish in a FA era setting.

    Also, I like that there isn't a lot of waiting for the results... though I do a lot of tinkering with teams during the season in normal leagues. I can also see what not messing with the teams will do.
