Entry Fee: $325 (all money paid out, minus CBS Fee) Paypal verified & preferred.
League Overview: A straight ROTO league that finally has a payout worth all the time you spend crunching numbers and setting your roster each week. With 20 Keepers and 10 Minor League spots, think of it as a Dynasty League without all the time consuming things like salaries, contracts, auctions, etc.etc.
Scoring: 5x5 Roto Standard Categories (HR’s, AVG, Runs, RBI’s, SB & K’s, Wins, WHIP, ERA, Saves)
Scoring Periods: Weekly, starting on Mondays. Rosters set for Weekly Periods.
Extended Slow Draft starts as soon as we get all teams set/paid. Snake Draft. Order TBD at random via CBS random select. The rest of the draft will be held on at a TBD time (if needed). Likely during the week of March 17-20.
Rosters (23 Active / 7 Bench) Hitters: C (2), 1st, 2nd, 3rd, CI, MI, OF (5), DH
Pitchers: 9 (no RP/SP rules)
Bench: 7 (any position)
Injured: 0 (prevents abuse)
Minor: 10 (any position)
Keeper Rules: Teams keep 20 players (13 batters, 7 pitchers) + 10 Minor Leaguers. Each team may keep all their minor league players but does not have to keep any minor leaguers if they do not want. All minor league keepers must meet the minor league requirements. There is no time limit on length which someone can be kept.
Minor League eligibility and rules: (500 career AB for hitters, 150 IP for starters, 75 IP for RP) Players who pass these benchmarks during a season remain eligible as a “minor leaguer” for the remainder of the season but are not eligible as minor leaguers the following season. Owners may move eligible players between the minors and active rosters during the course of the season. (i.e Player X gets called up for a spot start, he may be put into a roster but he is also allowed to be put back into the minors should his team send him back down and have no further use to a team). In order to move a minor leaguer to an active roster, space must be made by either moving another minor league eligible player back to the minors status or by dropping someone.
Add/Drops/Waivers – First come, first serve. Owners may add/drop players whenever they want. There will not be a waiver period. (this tends to keep people more active).
Trades: All trades are approved immediately but each owner has 1 Challenge. Challenges are treated like the NFL challenge rule. Once a trade is challenged, it goes to a vote. 5 Owners must vote to veto the trade. If the trade is vetoed, the Challenging Owner keeps his challenge. Should the trade not get vetoed, the Challenging team losses their right to challenge for the rest of the season. (The Commish may make exceptions to this rule should he become aware of collusion by owners.)
Payouts: All money paid out (minus CBS fee of $130)
1st - $1885 (50%)
2nd - $1131m (30%)
3rd - $754 (20%)
**Weekly Scoring Winners: Open to league vote if there should be a $25 weekly prize for the weekly winner. This could either increase league fee by $50 or decrease payouts. TBD by league vote.
