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....

Force send Hanley Ramirez and Matt Olson to Springfield for for Trea
Turner and Alex Wood
Alex Wood for Yasiel Puig.
Let the fireworks commence.
This week's Matchups:
Saxmania's Swingers @ Larrupin' Lou's
Evil Empire @ Michigan Wolverines
Those Hobbled Men @ Miko's
Carolina Force @ Boras's Holdouts
The Lumberjacks @ Guys with Wood
Gentlemen @ Babe's Blasts
Planet Express @ Romanian Yankees
Powerplant @ Stubborn Jalapenos
Marauders send Archie Bradley to the Longnames for Yasiel Puig.
Bradley is injured and has 3 keeps left. Puig is dumb and has 1 keep left.
Hobbled Men send Garrett Richards who has keeper value and is the Angels' ace to the Empire for Ryan Braun.
In our never ending quest for consistent hitting the Hobbled Men have acquired Dustin Pedroia. This is nothing in comparison, however, to Miko's never ending quest to get Jake Lamb on his roster making this the third time he's been traded between the two teams.
This Week's Matchups:
Those Hobbled Men in their Tattered Stirrups @ Ligers
Babe's Blasts @ Miko's Biogenisis Marauders of Bad Etiquette
Guys with Wood @ Carolina Force
Larrupin' Lou's @ Romanian Yankees
The Lumberjacks @ Evil Empire
Saxmania's Swingers @ Stubborn Jalapenos
Boras's Holdouts @ Michigan Wolverines
Team of Extraordinary Gentlemen @ Bad Apples
The Swingers ship Puig out of town to the Longnames in return for Wilmer Flores and Dexter Fowler.
I love Puig, but with only one keep left on him, I'd rather roll the dice and see if Flores can be something good long term.
Be seeing you,
Swingers trade Kendry Morales for Jeff Samardzija The Unspellable.
This is in the category of 'current plan not working, try something new'. I've got Duda and Carter who can play 1B, and I've got some faith that Samardzija will rebound in the second half. Doesn't help me with keepers at the present, but a) I still want to win more games this year if possible, and b) option remains to flip him nearer the trade deadline if he turns it around.
With Wainwright gone, and Beltre plus Odorizzi...
If the Teams of the NYYFans Fantasy League played the characters of Game of Thrones:
Those Hobbled Men in their Tattered Stirrups as Petyr Baelish
Because The Hobbled Men are always plotting and scheming to get to the top. Trading with the one to trade to the other. Always on the prowl. Always looking for a loophole.
Bad Apples as Joffrey Baratheon
The Bad Apples play Joffrey, because Joffrey is one bad apple
Michigan Wolverines as Daenerys Targaryen
OF Andrew McCutchen
RH Jeurys Familia
RH Wily Peralta

The Romanian Yankees have traded ace Madison Bumgarner and prospect Kyle Zimmer to the Mikos, in exchange for highly ranked prospects Hector Olivera and Daniel Norris, and replacement starter Jesse Hahn.
Needless to say, we feel Olivera and Norris both have the potential to be superstars, and Hahn is a solid immediate replacement in the rotation.
The RoYanks would like to thank all fellow managers who were interested in Bumgarner. We have received no less than 14 offers from 6 different...
