Who is doing what? and other dynasty related hints and tips

79 posts in this topic

I think this would help people who want to start a dynasty and want to know the teams that are currently being presented. I will update the list as members start presenting their dynasty.

This thread can also be used to discuss ideas that everyone may have and suggestions to improve the overall presentation in general. Here are some ideas people have suggested that they would like to see implemented.

-Player comeback - a player, probably someone who retired young, tries a comeback... An example of a player you could do this with is Ben Grieve.

Have something like reports from ESPN like I had reports on guys that admitted using steroids such as A-Rod, Giambi, and Bonds. Really livens up your dynasty.

If you're doing a multi-year dynasty, you could use "rebuilding" as a central theme early on in your dynasty, trading away veterans for younger players and prospects.

Nothing innovative here, but I'd like to see these Dynasties presented:

1. 1978 Mod (Yankees or Red Sox)

2. Carribean Dynasty (HLFR is working on it)

3. 1994 Mod (Montreal)

4. 1961 Mod (Yankees, presented in traditional black and white)

5. World Baseball Classic (Any Team - not necessarily a Dynasty, but presented in a tourney like fashion.

Like I said, not necessarily an idea for spicing up a dynasty, but since we're on 'ideas', I thought I would drop this in.

I would love to see any one of these taken on.

I have two ideas.

1) Stick with it. There's nothing more disappointing than getting caught up in a dynasty and than see that the person gave up on it. Its been said that its a challenge to keep up with a dynasty here, and If you're not up for it, don't start one in the first place.

2) Be creative. Seeing the same layout in every dynasty starts to lessen the value of all that use it. Try getting your own feel for your dynasty.

That's it for now.

Here is an idea that could be quite interesting. We could have a re-arranging of teams with the divisions. For example, the fact is no matter how many top prospects the D-Rays are going to draft, its very unlikely that they will be able to compete with the likes of New York and Boston and even the Jays.

What I suggest is to give teams like the D-Rays a chance to shine. Maybe they could be moved to the NL. And not just with D-Rays, shake the division up in such a way that high payroll teams are grouped together (based on geography of course) and provide the teams that have limited budget a better opportunity to showcase their skills and give them hope that they too can win the division.

Also, I think it would be truly amazing if the Yanks and the Red Sox were in two different leagues and there was a possibility of a World Series matchup between the two.

Shocking, I know, but there are dynasty ideas not yet used. Anyone can use these free of charge, for what will certainly be the best dynasty we've ever seen.

Miami Vices:

Can you take every player arrested or suspended for drugs, domestic violence, or some other illicit activity to the top? Can Brett Myers and Elijah Dukes occupy the same dressing room? Does Delmon Young keep throwing bats at people?

Oakland (Un)Athletics:

How many fat guys can you fit into one dugout? A rotation featuring CC Sabathia and David Wells guarantees tons of sweaty fun. Can Rich "El Guapo" Garces make it back to the Bigs?

Arizona Agony:

You're in charge of the only team with more trainers than players, as you field the 25 most injury prone players in the tricky NL West. Who falls down the stairs carrying deer meat? Who cracks a rib sneezing? Who brains himself with his bat during a particularly violent swing?

Philadelphia Phury:

With all of the angriest and most violent players in the majors, Philadelphia's in for a heated summer. Watch Lou Pineilla try to keep Carlos Zambrano from stabbing Kyle Farnsworth with a broken bat!

Indians in the Cupboard:

An Indians dynasty with players widely suspected of being gay. Will traditional Midwestern values trump the desperate Cleveland need for a championship?

Houston Hustle:

You know the type, the run-out-every-play midget freaks that make baseball great. David Eckstein's hustle has made him the most feared player in the game. Chone Figgins treats every game like his last. Can you overcome their meager talent and short stature to win the NL Central?

The Texas Tonguetwisters:

Grudzialanek. Mientkiewitz. Saltalamacchia. Can your wrists make the entire 162 games typing the longest and most convuleted names in the game? Can they make it to the top of the West?

Minnesota Makeup:

Makeup, one of the intangibles that you just can't ignore. Can the nicest players in the league turn their remarkable boredom into World Series gold?

San Fran Senility:

After years of trying, Sabean has finally amassed the 25 oldest players in the game. Will Julio Franco make it through a season without breaking a hip? Can Roger Clemens bravely battle back from hemmorhoids?

Shares of one baseball team are sold as stocks, and the collective stockholders get to make decisions with a chairman of the stockowner board as the head decision maker. Because the team is owned by the mass public, it makes a lot of uninformed moves, I.E., trading for players who are overrated like Juan Pierre and Raul Ibanez and overrating runs, average, RBI, and wins.

Yeah I got Photoshop installed now and I dealt with my virus problems so I should start getting more into the dynasty in the near future. By the weekend, I'll have a lot of layout things done. I'm just going with a standard theme similar to the Jays current season with a ton of injuries to deal with.

There are a lot of great dynasties here, hopefully this inspires some more of them.

That's also a good idea, but I see that as being more of a unique dynasty idea than a typical dynasty.

I think I'm going to start a dynasty, but it's going to be a fantasy drafted one simlilar to the thread I just posted about rating my team, but I'm going to start over and redraft.

My choices are going to be either the Pirates or the Giants. (Not that it makes a difference as they're fantasy drafted. But would there be issues because there already is a Pirate dynasty? Also, are they're any other fantasy drafted ones on here?

edit: actually, I changed my mind and not doing it being as I will probably just give up on it sooner or later....

Hey everyone, check out the first post for some dynasty updates. I mainly deleted those dynasties that had died out and added a couple of other dynasties that have had some recent activities.

If I had deleted your dynasty and you are still going to continue with it, please let me know and I will add that back in. Take care and have a nice day.
