Lights, Camera, Action! A Fictional Character Baseball Dynasty

I'm new to the forums, but not new to the OOTP game. I've tried and failed at two separate dynasties. However, this is this one seems to be working out for me so far.

After being partially inspired by a thread I read once (forget the name), I thought of how cool it would be to put some of film and television's best characters into an OOTP dynasty. And thus, the Legion of California was born.

The Legion of California is a 10-team league completely composed of fictional (male) movie and television characters. I had a role in rating the characters, mostly based on their importance as well as their athletic ability. I then held a draft between the teams. The season is 155 games long, culminating in a 4 team, best-of 5 tournament. There is no minor league, so injuries and fatigue are set to low. Relievers are used sparingly, much less then modern MLB levels.

If you want a notable character represented that I left out, please name the character and I will put them into the next draft.

The teams, all based close to Los Angeles, are as follows:

Code:
1. Anaheim Tourists
2. Burbank Tycoons
3. Compton Rappers
4. East Los Angeles Dreamers
5. Glendale Animators
6. Hollywood Stars
7. Huntington Beach Rockstars
8. Palmdale Fire
9. Pasadena Surfers
10. West Los Angeles Sun
I hope to have as much fun playing this dynasty as you will reading about it. If wanted, I will put roster and league structure files up for download, so that others can play the dynasty.

So, without rambling on, here it is: LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!

First up, the team previews...more info to come

Anaheim Tourists

Anaheim Tourists
Manager: Stephen Speilberg

Preview:
The Tourists seem to be a middle of the road team. They have a fast but powerful offense led by Maxiums (Gladiator) and Forrest Gump (Forrest Gump). Speed is seen in shortstop Angus MacGyver (MacGyver), who will be in contention for the stolen bases title along with the aforementioned Gump. The rotation also seems strong, led by Harry Callahan (Dirty Harry) and James T. Kirk (Star Trek). The playoffs will be in sight, but will be difficult to reach due to their weak bullpen.

Prediction: 6th place

Roster:

Code:
Pos.     First             Last 
SP       Harry             Callahan

Burbank Tycoons
Manager: Clint Eastwood

Preview:
The Tycoons have a lot of money, and they're not afraid to use it. Their pitching staff is strong, including John Rambo (Rambo series), Charles Kane (Citizen Kane), and Jaques Clouseau (The Pink Panther), arguably the league's most dominant closer. The Tycoon's offense has a good balance of power and speed, with Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean series) and Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th) leading the charge. I have a strong feeling that this is a championship-caliber team, but they might have some trouble with chemistry.

Prediction: 2nd place

Roster:

Code:
Pos.     First             Last 
SP       Charles           Kane
SP       Dexter            Morgan

Compton Rappers

Compton Rappers
Manager: Ice Cube

Preview:
There's no doubt that the Rappers have one of the best offenses in the league. Stars of the offense include second baseman James Bond, catcher Voldemort (Harry Potter series), first baseman Danny Ocean (Ocean's 11), and outfielder Chewbacca (Star Wars). Their pitching is also high-class, but lacking in the bullpen area. Notable pitchers include Gordon Gecko (Wall Street) and Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird). With a stronger bullpen, I would easily put this team in first. However, I think that the Rapper's weak bullpen will hurt their chances of a championship. Midseason trades will be crucial.

Prediction: 3rd place

Roster:

Code:
Pos.     First             Last
SP       Atticus           Finch
SP       Gordon            Gecko
SP       Ray               Barone
SP       John              Coffey
SP       Buddy             The Elf

MR       Cosmo             Kramer
MR       Keith             Partridge

CL       Jar-Jar           Binks
Code:

I was expecting the Compton Rappers to include Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Easy E.

One can only hope that Lord Voldemort gets crossed up on a pitch, takes one to the chest, and an Avada Kedavara spell back at his closer and finally takes care of Jar Jar Binks for good.

But this looks interesting, so I'll be following along!

East Los Angeles Dreamers

East Los Angeles Dreamers
Manager: Christopher Nolan

Preview:
The Dreamers hopes of a championship this year can be found right in their nickname- they can only dream that they will go all the way this year. The Dreamers are under interesting circumstances. They have the league's best player, shortstop Harry Potter, but their next best thing is borderline-star second baseman Clark Kent (Superman). Pitching and defense are among the worst in the league. The Dreamers need to look ahead to this year's draft, where they will likely have the first or second pick.

Prediction: 10th place

Roster:

Code:
Pos.     First             Last
SP       John H.           Miller
SP       Morpheus
SP       Jean-Luc          Picard
SP       Borat             Sagdiyev
SP       Mace              Windu

MR       Marty             McFly
MR       Gandalf

CL       David             Fisher

Glendale Animators

Glendale Animators
Manager: Christopher Nolan

Preview: The Animators are arguably the best pitching/defense team in the league. The pitching staff is dominant, including starters Norman Bates (Psycho), Willy Wonka (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), and Han Solo (Star Wars). The bullpen sports relievers Lex Luthor (Superman) and Auric Goldfinger (James Bond), and closer Ace Ventura. That being said, the offense is nothing special, with center fielder Indiana Jones being the only standout player. The overall team is middle-class, but can be better with the acquisition of better hitters later this year in the draft.

Prediction: 5th place

Roster:
Code:
Pos.     First             Last
SP       Norman            Bates
SP       Alfred            Pennyworth
SP       Han               Solo
SP       Willy             Wonka
SP       Jack              Shephard

MR       Tyrone            Biggums
MR       Auric             Goldfinger

I like this idea - I will be following...

I actually thought of doing something similar, only with different characters of a particular actors.

Say, a team full of Clint Eastwood characters...
A team full of Morgan Freeman characters...

etc...
