Welcome all to the Wise Guys Fantasy Baseball League (WGFBL)!
Come on in and make yourself at home. We are exciting to get the first season of WGFBL off to a good start with a dedicated and talented group of owners.League Dues
Annual League fees will be $50.00 per team with 100% of dues being paid out based on playoff results. All League Fee Transactions will be run through LeagueSafe to ensure safety of each teams money and immediate payout of winnings.The Salary Cap
Each team has a salary cap of $135,000,000. This is the cap for the entire season and is not allowed to be exceeded. Your Free Agent budget will be determined by how much cap space you used during the draft.The Initial Draft
We will be drafting 25 Rounds once the league fills up. Each player has a salary that has been determined by their 2013 Season Points total and relation to the salary cap.All Players drafted will follow their preassigned contract value for the duration of the contract.
Each team will have 24-hours to make their draft selection. Once the team is OTC, they will receive an PM from the prior picking team notifying them of this. If they do not make the pick within 24-hours, a pick will be made for them.
***No player may be drafted that has not exceeded Rookie Eligibility Thresholds***
Once the draft is over, every team will be given one week (7 days) to sign their draftees to contracts.Contract Limitations
Each team will be limited to the following contract restrictions:
4 x 4-year contracts
6 x 3-year contracts
No limits for contracts either 1 or 2 years in length.
These are just the maximum allowed, meaning that you don't have to use them, if you do not want to.
You are not prohibited from trading for players with longer contracts, even you are at the max allowed. These are just the limits for each owner to follow when signing players. For instance...if you have signed 2 players to 4-year contracts, you are still allowed to trade for another player with a 4-year contract without moving one of your 2 players.
The limitations on contracts changes once the season begins as all free agents signed in season can only be signed to 1 year deals.Free Agency
We have 30 MLB roster spots, but will only draft 25 MLB players. Once the draft is complete, Free Agency will begin. Any player not drafted will become a Free Agent and will be allowed to be bid upon. The winning bid will become that player's salary. Once the player is awarded to the winning team, the owner needs to let the commissioner know how long the player will be signed for by posting the contract length in the appropriate players auction thread.
Bidding is open, meaning that you can see what the highest bid for a player is, and the team in the lead. An Auction is won after no competing bids are placed on a player for 24 hours.Minor League Roster
The only draft that will be conducted annually is the Minor League Draft. This draft will begin November 1 following the Major League Season and will be 5 Rounds in length. You have 15 roster spots for Minors, so each team has some flexibiilty with their Minor League Roster. Only players that have not had a qualifying season in the Majors will be allowed to be drafted in the Minor League Draft.International Players
International players will be treated as Rookies. They must first sign with a MLB club before they are allowed to be drafted by a team, if an International Player exceeds the minimum thresholds during a season they are eligible for Free Agency.
