New Era Baseball

Postby Corey » Sat Apr 16, 2011 12:04 am

New Era is a very in-depth league requiring much skill and knowledge of both major league talent as well as minor league talent. You will be forced to make decisions that effect the talent level and the financial aspects of your team for years to come. If you are serious about your baseball then New Era is for you!

Below are the main rules for New Era

Salary Cap & Market Value

The salary cap for each team in New Era will change every two years. It will be announced one full season in advance, so the next salary cap change (2013 season) will be announced prior to winter free agency for the 2012 season. It fluctuates depending on the performance and perceived value (farm rankings and fantasy points of MLB players) of your club. The salary caps change based on market value

Baltimore Orioles, 2011-2012 Cap: $90m, 2011 Market Value: $84.5m
Boston Red Sox, 2011-2012 Cap: $190m, 2011 Market Value: $197.3m

General Manager & Ownership

The GM has 100% control of the teams moves, and any post he makes is valid. Now a gm can consult with his co-owners if he wants to. The big thing about the iinvesting into teams is A. makes it very life like. B. allows you more opportunities to win. A member is allowed to invest in up to 4 teams, and is allowed to be the gm of another team, while investing in others. (the trade committee will be strict as this is a money league, and no-collusion or skeptical trades will be allowed.)

Roster and League Settings

Basic Requirements
You must be an active member of the ProFSL forum as all transactions are decided by bidding on the New Era board. If you do not respond to a PM inquiry regarding your status in the league within two weeks then you may be let go due to inactivity. If you plan on going on a hiatus of any type (vacation, busy with work) then please notify the commissioner and co-owners ahead of time.

League Premise
To represent the current atmosphere of MLB for GMs in a manner that works effectively with fantasy baseball while not making it overly complicated to play.

Franchise Name
Your franchise name is tied to the actual MLB franchise. If the team name changes, or the franchise moves to a different city, your team name must adapt. In the event of contraction, your team name remains grandfathered unless you take you GM skills to a different team

Roster Size
Your MLB roster can be no more than 40 players. This does not include the entry draft roster.

Original Rosters (2011)
Original rosters reflect players that the franchise has as of April 11, 2011. Any minor league players not inherited were considered free agents. All optional contract extensions (options) were decided on as these are not used in MLFB Franchise GM. GMs may have extended the current contract (if there are options) inherited of a player for any number of years up to the number of option years available after 2009. After the option extension wass decided, the contract was final.

League Site
The league will be a free league on Fantrax.

Roster Positions
C (1)
1B (1)
2B (1)
3B (1)
SS (1)
LF (1)
CF (1)
RF (1)
Util (1)
SP (5)
RP (6)

Lineups
The lineups can be set daily. The scoring period is weekly. There is a maximum of 85 innings that your pitchers may throw per week. Any amount over that will not be counted toward your score that week.


Scoring System

Scoring
We found a way to value player's contributions to run creation and run prevention in a Bill James manner that correlates to the game as much as possible. James' research concluded that 58% / 42% of wins comes from hitting / pitching, respectively. You will see these ratios in the breakdown of the stats in ranges of players.

The batting stats were largely based on the old metric Runs Created, but it was tweaked to reflect more consistent hitters who have higher AVG / OBP. The weights for batting are:

At-Bat, AB: -10
Hit, H: 10
Single, 1B: 24
Double, 2B: 36
Triple, 3B: 48
Homerun, HR: 60
Walk, BB: 20.4
Runs, R: 5
Grounded-into-Double Play, GIDP: -18
Hit-by-pitch, HBP: 20.4
Sacrifice Fly, SF: 6
Sacrifice Hit, SH: 6
Stolen Base, SB: 6
Caught Stealing, CS: -12

Pitching stats are much more simple and rely on four metrics: Ground Balls, Walks, Home Runs Allowed, Quality Starts, Holds+Saves, and Strikeouts. The stats are designed so there is no bias given to control nor power pitchers.

Ground Balls Allowed, GB: 3
Home Runs Allowed, HR: -15
Walks Issued, BB: -5
Strikeouts, K: 9
Quality Start, QS: 15
Saves + Holds, S+H: 10

Currently left is 100% of both the Tigers and Yankees as well as 40% of the Nationals (ran by me) and 50% of the Orioles (ran by another established and successful manager). The league pays out 105% of the pot thanks to a 5% contribution from ProFSL. Feel free to ask any questions, read the rules, and sign up at http://www.profsl.com/smf/index.php?board=539.0
