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....

Last chance for anyone to make a run at Miko, owner of 12-wins-in-a-row, which has to be some sort of unholy record. I wonder what Miko had to sacrifice to the FBB gods in order to get this sort of streak.
Does anyone have a shot? Will we see blockbusters this week? Is Harper going to get traded? Find out within.
Plant give up:
Ligers give up:
In a late deadline deal the Marauders send...

Planet Express gets a big upgrade and a potential keeper in Morneau and the Ligers get a big upgrade at SS in Rollins
Plant move Cishek, Soriano, and Kemp to the Jalapenos for the coveted Wood, Qualls, and Corbin.
Continuing our storied tradition of cutting deadline deals, the Soon-To-Return-To-Magnificence-Men send our first really homegrown prospect superstar Bryce Harper, along with the speedy Span who's having a breakout year and the much heralded SS prospect Lindor for one of the league's top value SP Dallas-thanks-for-paying-my-salary-Keuchel and slugger Josh Hamilton.
Thank you for playing this year.
Owen Gray and Gile
Kershaw and Greinke
With deadline fast approaching, the Romanian Yankees parted ways with unkeepable top catcher Lucroy and top reliever Chapman, in exchange for another top reliever, Holland - keepable for one more year in a much lower round than Chapman - and a capable replacement for Lucroy. With this trade, the Romanian Yankees are now in a good position for next season, with a solid core of keepers, for both the major and...
In an exchange of minor leaguers the Marauders send SP Trevor May to the Tattered Stirrups for 3B Jake Lamb. Sorry for misleading anyone!
All of my non keepers are available (Cano, Upton, Cabrera, Hudson, closers, Weaver, etc).
Looking for quality high end keepers only - not quantity as I already have some good ones.
I am also content to stick with what I have and go for the first draft pick. PM or make offers.
Ligers ship off Michael Pineda and Ben Lively to the Non dedits.
Non dedits send Jon Lester to the Ligers.
Carolina Force send:
ˇDozier, Hunter SS | KC

ˇLee, Cliff SP | PHI
The Ligers have been focusing their attention on trying to land some pieces to make a run at a champjonship.
With the miko moves of the last few days, the Liger Management has switched gears and have decided to play for next year. Sadly we have pulled back trade offers that have sat there with no response. Also sadly we have turned down some recent trade offers that we were considering.
Thanks to those who have made deals and offers to the Ligers. It has been greatly appreciated. ...
Apples send ace pitcher David Price in exchange for Lance Lynn.
So Here we go... let's do business.
I'm looking for a SP. (shocking!)
I'll field offers for anyone. Players I am putting ont he block officially though:
Lucroy, Ike Davis, Morales, Marte, Ethier...
I'm tossing guys out there I can back up with other players. But again I will trade anyone. Cano, Trumbo and Zobrist will be tough to pry from me though. :) Unless of course I can get a suitable/serviceable replacement.
