The Lumberjacks: PinstripePride

It took a lot of work, and I consulted with several people here (including the commissioners) but attached here is a copy of what I hope will become our League Constitution. It incorporates all our rules and procedures, and I hope I didn't leave anything out.
If you can think of anything that I got wrong, or left out, please post it in this thread.
I'd like to pass this now, rather than during the off-season, so hopefully all the owners will get a chance to look at it.
This is the formula for the schedule for a 20 team, 4 division league in which each team plays division opponents twice and all other teams once.
First, teams need to be grouped by division and numbered, 1 through 5 in each division and 1 through 20 for the entire league. Other than that it's not essential that you put them in any particular order, but listing them by the order of last year's finish helps assure that teams won't end up playing each other in the same weeks each year....
John, wtf man?
I guess it's that time, when Miko blows up his team and makes a charge for the playoffs.
JD Martinez (DL)
Hobbled Men send:
Good week all...
Roberto Osuna, RP, Tor
Jose De Leon, Sp, LAD (ML)
to Force for:
RoY give up
Miko gives up
The Ligers GM is down in the Dominican Republic scouting.
Have a great week all.
Wolvies say goodbye to:
- Sonny Gray, SP, Oak
- Eduardo Nunez, SS, Min
In return, Powerplant gives up:
- Matt Carpenter, 3B, Stl
- Jered Weaver, SP, LAA
Judgement Day receive: SS/2B Addison Russell
Force receive: LHP Blake Snell & OF Justin Upton
Rolling the dice on Upton returning to form and hoping Snell can prove he can play at the major league level. JD gets Russell who has good keeper value (19th rd next season with 2 keeps left).
This Week's Match ups:
Mrs. Bill and Sluggo @ Marauders
Guys with Wood @ Carolina Force
Larrupin' Lou's @ Romanian Yankees
The Lumberjacks @ Felonious Punks
Try2BeatMe @ Born to Lose
Boras's Holdouts @ Wolverines
Judgement Day @ Bad Apples
Planet Express @ Powerplant
Jacks send: Matt Harvey
Planet sends: Nomar Mazara
Works for both parties. Planet gets a potential #1 starter/ace if Harvey's turnaround continues, Jacks get a stud OF ROY candidate with 3 late round keeps left and immediate "now" points to solidify my weak offense.
Have at it.
Born to lose gets:
Prince Fielder DH Tex
Planet Express gets:
James Paxton SP Sea
Marauders send.....Carlos Rodon, Jake Lamb & Hunter Harvey
Born to Lose send....Giancarlo Stanton
Guys send SP Yordano Ventura to Judgement Day for OF Matt Holiday
Ventura is a keeper in round 15 next year, guys needed to stabilize OF.
Below are this week's possible match ups.
Not sure if the schedule has been set for the next 4 weeks?
Bad Etiquette @ Born to Lose
Guys with Wood @ Michigan Wolverines
