Looking for replacement owners to keep this league very active.

Moneyball Fantasy Baseball


Scoring
(Adapted to run production and prevention as much as the available stats will allow)
Hitting = 1 point per base.
Pitching = 3.6 points per IP and –1 point for each base given away
Exact stats in use found at: http://www1.fantrax.com/fantasy/leagueR ... 67gyyw4yoa


Standings
A team’s weekly score is put head-to-head against all other teams in the league, every week.
Weekly match-ups run Monday to Sunday with certain match-ups getting extended (start and end of season, etc.)

Playoffs
Six teams make the playoffs, which take place over the last 3 weeks of the season.

Rosters
Each team controls a minimum 24 and maximum 40 players
Disabled list and minor leaguers count toward these roster limits.
Active slots must have a player in them every day, though you can put a player who has the day off in an active slot.
There is one active slot for each fielding position, 1 for a DH, and you have the choice of 3 or 4 active pitchers per day.

Minor league eligibility
Teams can have up to 16 players on the minor roster.
These players don’t count toward the salary cap, but count toward the 40-man roster.
Players qualify for minors if they are not on an MLB roster in real life, or if they’re under 30 yrs old and have less than 50 career games played. **This will be changed to the real MLB rule of under 130 AB or 50 IP once the website options become available**
If you legally put a player in the minors during a time when they are eligible, you are allowed to keep them there as long as you wish… even if they no longer qualify in real life.

Disabled list
While players are on the real-life DL, they qualify to be put on your team’s DL. Once they’re on your DL, you can keep them there as long as you like, even if they come off the real-life DL.
DL players don’t count toward the salary cap, but count toward the 40-man roster.

Position eligibility
If a player plays at least 1 inning at a position during this season or last, then he qualifies for that position on your roster.

Playing time maximums
For every head-to-head match-up period;
- Teams can bat to a maximum of 162 outs.
- Teams can pitch to a maximum of 6 starts or 54 innings whichever comes first.

On the day a limit is reached, all stats will continue to count for the rest of the day.
Batting and pitching limits are separate from each other.

**IMPORTANT**
Playing time maximums are expected to be met each week. Owners who do not meet their weekly max are expected to e-mail the commish with an explanation.
Failure to do so three times is three strikes and you’re out.


Keepers
Keepers need to be marked 27 days before opening day. (March 1st for 2012)
Teams have the option to keep players still under contract or drop them without penalty.
Players who have finished their contracts cannot be marked as keepers.
Keeper deadline is the last chance to drop players until after the draft.

Draft
Players who were not marked as keepers and players who were not on teams at the end of the previous season are eligible to be drafted.
Following the keeper deadline, the computer will re-calculate salaries for available players. The exact methodology for salary calculation is not published by the website, but is said to factor in previous seasons and projected statistics and was originally weighted to have the salary of our highest paid player match the salary of MLB’s highest paid player.
The draft will start 7 days after the keeper deadline. (March 8th for 2012)
Draft order is last year’s standings in a last-to-first order every round.
Draft will go as long as it takes each team to fill their 25-man roster.
Once your team reaches 25 players who are not on the DL or minors-eligible, your draft ends and others continue.
Owners can transfer drafted players to the minors, (if eligible), during the draft.
The draft will start by giving everyone up to 12 hours to log on and make a pick.
This time frame will be adjusted if needed, so that the draft takes no longer than 10 days.
The website sends you an e-mail when it’s your turn and also allows you to make a wish list ahead of time that can make your pick for you.
Players who are drafted get the listed salary on a contract that lasts up to 6 years.
When the draft ends, un-drafted players start on waivers.

Waivers
Un-drafted players start on waivers, and released players go through waivers as well.
Waivers last 2 days.
Waiver claims can be made with preference given to the team lowest in the current standings.
Players claimed on waivers continue on with their listed contract value and length.

Free Agents
Dropped players who pass through the draft and/or waivers become free agents.
Free agents are eligible to be bid on and won daily.
The highest bidder at 3am each day wins the player with the tiebreaker favouring the lower team in the standings.
The winning bid becomes that player’s salary and the contract lasts for that season plus the next.
A player who doesn’t get bid on by anyone continues on as a free agent the next day.
Teams are only allowed to spend up to $198 per year on winning free agent bids, so while there is no penalty for releasing a player before the end of his contract, there are restraints on acquiring new ones.
Drafting and waiver claims don’t affect this Free Agent Acquisition Budget.

Salaries and the cap
The standard team salary cap is $178 in imaginary money.
Minimum player salary is 41 cents and goes up in increments of 1 cent.
Owners have the option of paying $20 in real money to have a $198 cap.
Owners can pay the $20 at any point during the year and once they do, money stays in the prize pool even if the team doesn’t use the extra cap space.
A salary cap will only be increased after the commissioner receives the payment.
All the money collected becomes the prize for the league champion.
This prize is awarded whether the champ paid into it or not.
The 2011 prize was $160.00

What makes the Next Great such a U-N-I-Q-U-E
Roto Baseball League experience?

A. Deep Player Pool Penetration is rare in a mixed AL and NL League: Quality of Team Owners trumps quantity of Owners. No matter what type of league, it only takes a few stragglers to drag it down. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Too many times, however, we add owners so our league has more teams in order to achieve deeper penetration of the player pool. on Auction Day. Instead, we end up with too many unproven owners. Wouldn't you rather have thirteen great General Managers instead of 26 GMs where it is more than likely that a few will detract from your league by drafting like your sister, refuse to keep up in-season, and make putrid trades (then add insult to injury by quittting after a single season- one and done)? We'd rather have thirteen great owner-managers with double the standard Roto active player rosters, because deeper player pool penetration is paramount. Quality of Team Owners Trumps Quantity.
B. This is a league which encourages trades, promotes aggressive waiver wire maintenance, and limits streaming.
C. Play them, trade them, or risk losing them on the waiver wire. Make all healthy players active. No bench, 46 active roster slots.
D. The bane of every League’s continued health: Ghost Teams and landslide Trade Dumping after the All Star Game Break. Twenty-six weeks is a long season, but it is a lot longer when you’re stuck in the 2nd division. with little hope of getting players who are reserved and shelved by other teams even thoug the players are currently putting up counting stats. You need hope as well as a Keeper Roster to keep you active for the entire season. We especially provide hope in concrete, conceptual ways.
E. Every MLB team will win 50 games and every MLB will lose 50 games-- no matter what. It’s what they do in the remaining 62 games that matters. In our League, the Floor and Ceiling as far as points to be earned are a lot closer than ever to our feet and head at the end of the season. Being a Keeper League is great, but not when your Keeper roster makes the pennsnt race over by the All Star Game or makes your advantage too great on Auction Day. The playing field has been leveled. A good Keeper roster is still a fine thing to have; it’s just no longer the chief thing.
F. It’s unusual to find a mixed AL and NL that has this kind of penetration into the player pool on Auction Day: aprox. 79.7% of all active MLB players should be on Next Great rosters. On Auction day the Team Salary Ceiling is $520 for the double rosters, so value calculations are the same as before. In mixed leagues, any and every piece of MLB news is interesting; baseball news and analysis junkies unite in mixed leagues.
G. Role players who contribute double figures in counting category stats matter as much in our Roto as in real life. How often have bit players had a material effect on your current Roto League’s final standings? Or even been on a roster for more than a week or two? Based on experience with our Urleague (our original, earliest, primitive roto league for 26 seasons and still counting), two or three HRs here or the same number of Wins or RBI there are frequently the difference between being in the First Place or the First Division or not after the entire 26 week season. 46 active roster slots and 12 scoring categories makes the categories tighter.
H. This is a League that makes tactics and roster construction equally as important as projecting player values. In the Next Great you really are a GM who can make a difference.
I. The deep player pool penetration means that ultimately, after the newness of the experience wears off, it will dawn on owners that trading can change your fortune when big sticks or ace hurlers are not in the free agent pool. Our Urleague had over 70 trades just in 2012.
J. eBay style Twitter bidding makes the twice/weekly transactions easily accessible from anywhere with a short 15 minute window for bidding each of the 2 nights.
K. Blind Vickery FAAB Bidding for players waived by Next Great teams.
L. Priority in transaction rounds 2, 3, and 4 on Wednesday nights is based on reverse order of standings AND all nominations and bids are in real time and transparent via Tweet Bids- all within a 15 minute window.
M. Per week: two exception moves, unlimited natural moves, one waiver claim, and limitless reserved DL players.
N. Teams that continue to apply themselves will be able to find potential Keeper bargains during the August Dog Days Salary Specials.
O. Teams who have fought the good fight and are in a pennant race will not see their efforts derailed by the kind of trade dumping that fans should not tolerate in The Show.
P. We readily concede we don’t use cutting edge sabermetric stats as league scoring categories. This allows anyone and everyone to easily figure on the back of an envelope from the box score the net effect of a single game on their Roto team. Instead, competitive teams in Next Great use their own skilled analysis of the game’s internal numbers to predict playing time, role, and future impact on our 12 categories/external stats.
Q. And most Leagues that do have advanced sabermetric categories don’t have them set up in opposition to one another, making for more tactical decisions. In the Next Great you need both IP and Ks which you must balance against ERA and WHIP. You need BA, yet you need PA too. These are not easy decisions when so many categories are so tight at the end of the season.
R. In the post-PED endemic injuries era, even though all other non-trade moves are limited to two days per week, activating a reserved player by 9 p.m. any night is effective the next day.
S. Again, no bench. Our league is for GMs, not daily mangers. We encourage trades, promote aggressive waiver wire maintenance, and limit streaming.
T. Player contracts for 2 years + Topper Rights. Dynasty/Keeper League- max 15 on Freeze Roster, including Toppers. Just like Free Agency in The Show, you can keep a player on your team forever if you’re willing to pay one dollar more than the market every 3rd season.
U. On Auction Day to offer an angle on angle strategy for those clairvoyants inclined to indulge their mystical talents: Anyone alive is NOW available for purchase, should you choose to spend part of your $520 salary cap in that manner. For instance, you can buy a kid in the minors or in college or Japan or even the Korean League. You can later keep him on your Freeze Roster, but if he is not on an MLB roster on the following Auction Day, then he is automatically dropped back into the Auction Free Agent Pool.
V. Swing Man Roster slot instead of 4th catcher provides roster flexibility.
W. $20+ DL = REDEMPTION: If a player is bought for at least $20 in the current season’s Auction AND subsequent to Auction Day is placed on a major league Disabled List his Next Great team may release him before he is activated by his MLB team and redeem a portion of his current salary as an in-season FAAB Bonus.
X. Our single on-line Off-season Trading party on the eve of Freeze rosters promotes off-season trading.
Y. Our $10 fee makes it possible for most people to enjoy 12 months of fun and our lack of a cash prize consistently dissuades money-grubbing cheaters, while the Next Great will be the most challenging league you ever play in. Bar none…
