So here's something to think about:

Quote
Major League Baseball and the players’ union are near an agreement to expand active rosters by one to 26 starting in 2020 as part of a deal that would include a commitment to discuss larger economic issues after opening day this year.

As part of the deal, the active limit from Sept. 1 to the end of the season would be lowered from 40 to 28 beginning next year, people familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not yet been finalized.

Should the NPBL follow the change?  I'd be for it.

28 seems very small for September rosters to me. But I'd be open to making some tweaks.

I don't know if OOTP can support roster rules more similar to how the NFL and NHL work (so in our case, maybe something like a 30-man roster with 25 active for any individual game. Or whatever the numbers worked out too.)

I'd be all for the 26-man, and while 28 is low (I'd prefer like 30-35) I'd live with it for the extra spot year round

Not an ideal start for Kansas... 0 runs in the first 2 games.  ???
Mississippi Ravens / Georgia Hornets / Kansas Storm (2037-present): 1906-2306 .453%
Kansas Storm (2013-2025): 1133-973 .538%

Accidentally missed unchecking "Create and send results email" while importing... so.... that first e-mail you get can be ignored.

Utah sale is up and running for those looking to buy some pieces for 2079!

Wow! That's a heck of a drought... Maryland hadn't won since 2010!  Congrats!

For those curious, the longest time since their last championships are (in decending order):

Minnesota - Since 2034
Illinois - Since 2028
Michigan and Nova Scotia/Ohio - Since 2027
