DiMaggio brothers reunification - historical experiment

Hi everyone !

I don't know if it has been done before but I'm going to sim a historical experiment to make the DiMaggio brothers play together during their entire career.

In advance, forgive my grammar mistakes as english isn't my native language.

I'm starting the game in 1937.

Joe is 22, entering his second year with the Yankees after a .926 OPS in 1936.

The older bro Vince plays for the Boston Bees in the majors.

Dom is a total rookie, entering his first season with the San Francisco Seals in the Pacific Coast League (AAA).

The San Francisco Seals will become a major league team from now, along with the Padres (who secretly hides Ted Williams, 18), as part of a 2-team expansion, one in each league.

The younger brother somehow convinced the other two to join him on their original minor league team.

Financial aspects

I gave the Seals and Padres an average budget for their first season, 381k.
I’m not going to make an expansion as it should be done, but i will leave the owners with remaining budgets to see what they can get with free agency, year after year.
BUT i will use the editor to give the DiMaggio brothers 20 years-long MLB contract with no-trade clause, and I will do the same for Ted Williams with the Padres.
The other players will keep their minor league contracts, GMs will decide what to do with them.

Minor affiliations

In order to help the two new franchises a bit, I will give them minor affiliation with the 6 remaining Pacific Coast League teams, 3 each.

Sim time !

I think everything is ready for the sim, but before I start I’d like to have your feedback if you’re interested in following the results. Maybe you notice a mistake in the experiment ? I think i might have a problem with the managers not using the DiMaggio brothers together in the lineup, even if I gave them a promised role in the starting lineup. We’ll see what happen, and I’m curious to see if the Seals can build something solid around Joe. Same about the Padres with Ted Williams.
I plan on posting standings and individuals stats for every season until 2 of the brothers retire.
Let me know if anything comes to your mind, I’d be glad to make some interesting changes before simulating !
