    The National Baseball League

    I decided to make a fictional league based on the NFL and not play as a GM. Just sim and watch the results. The set-up is the league starts in 1970 with the merger. The league starts with fictional players but the draft will be historical players with random eras.

    All current teams start in the league. Each conference has two divisions of eight teams, The division winners and 2 wildcards make the playoffs each year. The Divisions are as follows:

    The ABC North
    Baltimore Ravens
    Buffalo Bills
    Cincinnati Bengals
    Cleveland Browns
    Indianapolis Colts
    Pittsburgh Steelers
    New England Patriots
    New York Jets

    The ABC South
    Denver Broncos
    Houston Texans
    Kansas City Chiefs
    Jacksonville Jaguars
    Miami Dolphins
    Oakland Raiders
    San Diego Chargers
    Tennessee Titans

    The NBC North
    Chicago Bears
    Detroit Lions
    Green Bay Packers
    Minnesota Vikings
    New York Giants
    Philadelphia Eagles
    Seattle Seahawks
    Washington Redskins

    The NBC South
    Arizona Cardinals
    Atlanta Falcons
    Carolina Panthers
    Dallas Cowboys
    Los Angeles Rams
    New Orleans Saints
    San Francisco 49ers
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Seattle Steelheads
    TCBA Champions: 1914, 1920

    Philadelphia Pride
    OTBL Champions: 2026, 2028, 2033, 2034

    Atlanta Firebirds

    The 1970 NBL Draft - Top 10

    #1 Jacksonville Jaguars select SP Doc Newton - Newton is a 20 year old pitcher with 80 grade stuff. Looks to be a true ace pitcher with 60 Movement and 50/65 control. The real Newton pitched 8 seasons at the beginning of the 20th century for a variety of teams.

    #2 Green Bay Packers select SP Tony Mullane - Mullane is a much more raw than Newton. He is rated at 40/80 Stuff, 35/45 movement, and 45/65 control. He is also an extreme flyball pitcher so I imagine he will have trouble with the long-ball. Known as "The Apollo of the Box", the real Tony Mullane pitched in the late 1800's. He was known for being a switch pitcher but that isn't represented in game. He has one of the highest winning percentages of any pitcher not in the Hall of Fame.

    #3 Detroit Lions select LF Aaron Judge - He has 80 grade power potential and a great eye. Not much to say since Judge is a current player.

    #4 Minnesota Vikings select LF Irish Meusel - Like Judge he has 80 grade power potential, he does have middling at best defense but his bat should be great. The real life Meusel played in 4 consecutive world series for the New York Giants in the 1920's. I think Meusel was a prospect of mine in the TCBA for a while but he had nowhere near the same ratings.

    #5 Chicago Bears select 1B Dave Orr - He has great contact and power but a bad eye and defense. The real Orr was one of the best hitters in the 1880's.

    #6 Washington Redskins select RF John Wilson. Wilson has 80 grade power and good contact but again bad eye and defense. The real John Wilson played in the dead-ball era of the early 1910's, managing to hit 59 Home Runs in his career.

    #7 Philadelphia Eagles select SP Yu Darvish - 80 grade stuff with movement and control in the 50's. Should be able to be an instant ace for the Eagles. Again a modern player so not much else to add.

    #8 New York Giants select C Smokey Burgess - Burgess has great power and solid contact from the catcher position. The real Burgess played in the majors for 28 years starting in 1949, much of his later years as a pinch hitter.

    #9 LA Rams select 2B Lee Lacy - Lacy has good defense, above average power, and an 80 grade contact tool from the second base position. The real Lacy has the record for most consecutive pinch hit home runs with three. He played with the Dodgers in the 70's and Pittsburgh in the 80's.

    #10 San Fransico 49ers select SP Mike Mussina - A 70 grade stuff and control Potential from a lefty pitcher. The real Mussina retired when I was 13 so i don't remember much about him, but he is probably the best player based on historical performance in this draft.

    Other Notable Pick: CF Torii Hunter to Houston @ #30.

    The 1970 NBL Season

    The best record in Baseball belonged to the 101-win Indianapolis Colts, led by rookie Left Fielder Norichika Aoki (Round 1, Pick 21). Aoki had an OPS+ of 164 in 78 games as the Colts won the ABC north. The ABC South was won by the 89-win Houston Texans, who were based around the second best rotation in the ABC and a serviceable lineup. Both ABC Wildcards were won by teams from the North, the 92-win Buffalo Bills and the 89 win Cleveland Browns. Both wildcard rounds went the full 7 games, Cleveland upset the favored Colts and the Texans squeaked by the Bills. The First ABC Championship was a back and forth affair, but the Texans won in 7 games to make the first ever Super Bowl.

    The NBC's best team was the 99-win, south champion, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The NBC North was super close with 3 90 win teams. The champion was the Chicago Bears with 93 wins, The wildcards went to the 90 win Detroit Lions and the 90 win Philadelphia Eagles. The Wildcard round saw the Buccaneers cruise past the Eagles and the Lions upset the Bears in 6 games. The first NBC championship was very close with Buccaneers winning in 7 games to set up the first ever Super Bowl.

    Super Bowl I
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Houston Texans
    Game 1 - Tampa Bay scores 4 in the first inning and never looks back, winning 11-1.
    Game 2 - Texans strike back with a 5-2 victory.
    Game 3 - Tampa Bay holds off a 9th inning rally to win the game 4-3.
    Game 4 - Tampa Bay wins in an offensive slug fest as another Houston 9th inning rally falls short, 10-8.
    Game 5 - Houston keeps their dreams alive with a walk off in the bottom of the 10th inning, 4-3.
    Game 6 - Houston adds 5 insurance runs in the top of the 9th to push the series to 7 games, 7-1.
    Game 7 - The teams were evenly matched through 9 innings and we went to extras again. Houston scored 2 in the top of the 12th and held Tampa Bay to 1 run in the bottom of the inning to win the first ever Super Bowl. (Series MVP: 1B Kevin Marro)
