Constitution: Salary & Contract System:
At the outset of the league all players drafted in the draft will receive their real life salary from the 2009 season as their base salary. Minor Leaguers will make $400,000 as their base salary.
At the outset of the league owners may assign the following contracts:
5 years - 4 contracts
4 years - 5 contracts
3 years - 6 contracts
2 years - unlimited
1 year - unlimited
Minor leaguers will not have contracts while they are in the minors. When they are promoted to your MLB roster you may sign them for up to a maximum of 3 years.
The salary cap for 2010 will be $120,000,000
Each team owner will select a real-life MLB team when entering the league. Team selections will be on a first come / first served basis.
Each team will select 25 MLB players and 20 Minor leaguers from their team's real life roster to makeup their initial fantasy roster. Players selected must have been on their team's real life roster on 2/13/10 in order to be eligible for their fantasy team. All players unsigned in real life as of 2/13/10 will be free agents.
Teams may bid up to the amount of free cap space they have. The first bid that lasts 24 hours without being topped will take the player. Free agents may be signed for 1 to 5 years with no limit on number of contracts.
All players whose contracts expire are restricted free agents. The owner of the team that owned the player may re-sign the player for the average of the top 5 salaries in the league at that position. Re-signed players may be signed for a maximum of 2 years. All players not re-signed by their teams will become unrestricted free agents and are open to bidding.
Players may be waived to make room on your roster for another player or a minor league call-up. You are responsible to continue paying that player's salary until the player is claimed by another team or the player's contract expires. Any team may make a claim on a waived player. Waivers will be granted on a first come / first served basis.
Players may be bought out of their contracts at any time by accepting a salary cap hit equal to 50% of the player's contract. For example, if the player's contract is $5mil for 3 years...his owner could buy him out for $7.5mil all at once. The player would immediately become a free agent and the initial owner would have to pay the $7.5 cap hit for the rest of the season.
All trades must be approved by the commish. Vetos will not take place unless there is evidence of direct collusion between the two owners.
Minor Leaguers are defined as any batter with less than 300 mlb at bats or any PItcher with less than 130 innings pitched and less than 50 appearances.
