I have one owner who has opted out, as he is a friend that took over the team last minute when we started up last season. He is a hockey and football guy,and struggled through the season with the complexity of the league. I want to get someone in ASAP instead of waiting.
Here's the details:
5X5 roto scoring: Batters: HR, BA, RBI, OPS, SB Pitching; ERA, S, SO, W, WHIP
40 man rosters, (18 active, 7 reserve, 10 optional assignment, and 5 DL), 10 minors (all active and reserves must be under contract in order to play) Salary cap of $350, with salaries set through yearly auction draft. Midseason draft right after the real MLB season for the newly drafted players.
Minors for raw rookies, (less than 130 AB, or 50 innings pitched), younger players on optional assignment, and minor league contracts. A player with less than 2 years experience can be put on optional assignment, and can be freely shuttled between the minors and your active reserve rosters.
Contracts are limited to age, and performance. Resigning is possible after contracts expire, contract options possible for teams to tack on additional year to a contract before it expires. 1 year contracts can be dropped during the season, but longer contracts cannot be dropped into free agent pool.
Contract options for letting a player go,.. 1 per year only,...buyouts, designation for assignment and waive a player. Minor leagues contracts for lessor players, 1 year contract only and must be dropped at end of year.
Reduction of salary for traded players to stimulate trading, and help with inflation in the future.
This will be a great league for the years to come, and your chance to get in the ground floor is now. As mentioned, I have done this with football and hockey, and they have little or no turnover.
$100 buy in for your team.
PM me here at the cafe with an e-mail address, and I will get you a look. CBS now has options with invites, so that you can look over the league without joining the league.
We had a great inaugural season, and the rest of the league is looking forward to next year.
