Considering purchasing game. Have 3 Questions

I want to know if I can do the following with OOTP:

1) Can I play with any team from any era vs another team from another era (1875 vs 2010)?
2) Is there a way to randomize the players so a player that played for the Yankees in 1940 is now playing for the Cubs in 2010 or would I have to manually select the player from one team and put him in the other team?
3) Is there a way to create my own team with non-existing players? For example, have a female-only team to play against real teams?

Thanks for any info.

#2 is especially important for me. Just to get this straight, the program can randomize the players so they play for other teams other than the one they originated from?

In addition to random debut linked by pstrickert which can put players from any era who choose on any team in the era you choose, you can randomize which players from an era end up on which teams from that era by selecting not to assign rookies to historical teams and let a draft run.

For #3, just note that the game has no support for female players, all news articles and scouting reports will refer to them as he. I was hoping to simulate something like the TV show Pitch and was disappointed that it wasn't possible.

Yup pstrickert linked to the manual for Random Debut and anecdotally I am addicted to this sort of gameplay. It's too much fun playing in 1901 and seeing, for example, what George Brett could do in the deadball era.

Oh wow. That's so cool! I didn't know that.

My Question:
If I were to set up a match between two teams from the eras mentioned above, the team from 2010 would beat the 1875 team 999 out of 1000 games, right? I know we've all had that conversation/argument, "Could Player X put up those same numbers in modern baseball?" I can't imagine a scenario where the 2010 team loses unless some ungodly bad luck befalls the 2010 team.

Has anyone tried this? If yes, what were the outcomes?
