Constitution: Teams: 16 Teams in 4 Divisions.
Entry Fee: $100 a Year
Schedule: Each Team will play 5 games a week concurrently
Rosters: Each team will have a 25 man roster. The active roster will consist of 13 players and will be set daily:
1 First Baseman
1 Second Baseman
1 Third Baseman
1 Designated Hitter
1 Starting Pitcher
3 Relief Pitchers
Each team will also have 12 Reserve spots to fill. Additionally 2 Injured Reserved spots will be allocated to two each team.
In addition to its 25 man roster each team will also have a minor league "Team". The team will consist of 5 spots that can be filled by any player who is still considered a rookie under MLB rules. MLB rules on the subject are as follows:
A player shall be considered a rookie unless, during a previous season or seasons, he has (a) exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues; or (b) accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the period of 25-player limit (excluding time in the military service and time on the disabled list).
Players who have not yet finished their rookie year do not count against the teams salary cap... even if they are in the active lineup.
Releasing Players: Once you release a player you are responsible for that players contract for the remainder of the year.
Draft: We will be using the fantasy auctioneer option on sportsline. The Auction draft will be online, one day, probably 3 hours long.
Salary Cap: $100
Luxury Tax: In order to keep players contracts at a reasonable rate
$1.00 - $100.00 = No Luxury Tax
Every $20 over $100 in team salary will cost you $100 in luxury tax. This must be paid before the move that puts you over the cap can be completed.
Contract Extensions: Once a player is in the final year of his contract you may offer that player an extension. Extensions automatically up that players contract value by 50% and extend their contract 3 years. Extensions may NOT be offered until a player has 1 year left. Once a player begins their final season with your team he is not eligable for an extension and will become a free agent at the end of his final season.
Free Agents: Free Agents can be picked up after the draft and are automatically signed to 1 year deals at the player minimum of $1.00. Once their contract expires a free agent aquisition then becomes arbitration eligable or may be released.
Trades: All trades will be subject to the commisioners approval. So long as the trade is not an obvious case of team dumping all trades will pass with little scrutiny. The trade deadline is July 31st.
AMENDMENT: All Vetoed trades will be voted on by the league. If a majority disagrees with me, the trade may still go through.
Waivers: Trades may still go through after the trade deadline but will be subject to a waiver system. The offering team's players in a trade must clear waivers in order for the deal to go through.
Example: The Cubs offer Soriano to The White Sox for Buehrle and Garland. Only Soriano must clear waivers. In order to clear waivers no team with a worse record then the White Sox may claim Soriano. If more than one team lays claim to a player, then the team with the worst record trumps the others.
If a team claims a player off waivers and has the viable claim as described above, his current team (the "waiving team") may choose one of the following options:
arrange a trade with the claiming team for that player within two days of the claim; or
rescind the request and keep the player on its major league roster, effectively canceling the waiver; or
do nothing and allow the claiming team to assume the player's existing contract and place the player on its active major league roster
Arbitration: Free agent aquisitions and Minor leaguers finishing their rookie season become eligable for arbitration. Teams with players going into arbitration may release an arbitration eligable player outright with no financial impact on their team. If a team offers to extend arbitration, they have 3 options:
2 year contract worth $3.00 a year
3 year contract worth $5.00 a year
4 year contract worth $7.00 a year
Once a player is through with their arbitration contract they become Free Agents. The Previous team will have final bid rights to outbid the highest bidder by offering $2.00 more than the high bid.
Rookie of the year = $50
MVP = $50
Cy Young = $50
Division Winners = $50
Manager of the Year (as voted by the entire league...cant vote for yourself) = $100
League Championship series runner up = $300
League Championship winner = $700
Any luxury taxes collected will be dispersed as follows:
$100 to the team with the lowest payroll.
25/75 % split or remaining amount to League Championship series teams (runner up/winner respectively)
Also..... Each division winner makes the playoffs with two Wild Cards from each league. The best record in each league recieves a first round bye; automatically advancing to the second round of the playoffs.
The Season lasts 21 weeks and the post season lasts 4 weeks....with the league championship series lasting 2 weeks.
