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....

The Ligers have been unable to secure a pitcher, through trade, to bolster our roster. I get rejections with no reason, or no response. Couple that with with the fact that both the Hobbled Men and Holdouts looking insanely great.
So, despite having the second seed in the playoffs (at present), the Ligers are selling for the right price.
We will be happy to stay the course, but will part with:
Sale, Lester, Harper (or even Stanton, for someone's playoff run) for very elite ML or mL...
Since JDPNYY appears to be indisposed; I'll take the dishonor of week 18's thread.
5 weeks remaining in the season.
The Longnames are easily the best team and have a 9-5 SP advantage this week. A win this week and they pretty much lock in the playoffs (already won h2h against Boras, hold a huge point lead).
The Gehrig has 3 teams tied at the top with the unnamed ones knocking on the door only a game back. Lou's currently hold the top spot based on points and beating Wood and Babe's...
Wolvies bid farewell to main stay ace Matt Harvey in his walk year, along with the ever dependable Jonathan Papelbon.
Force in exchange give up Jose Quintana, Jeurys Familia, and Jose De Leon.
The Jacks receive Aaron Judge
Ligers pick up Cole Hamels
The second deal as the Lumberjacks retool for next year. Goldschmidt and Bautista are headed to the Longnames for 2 rookie stud keepers Joc Pederson and Eduardo Rodriguez along with mL prospect Manuel Margot and OF filler Aaron Hicks.
Injured Pineda for Upton
Object if you must.
Blast is still looking for SP, send offers!
With their season officially lost, the Lumberjacks have turned toward 2016, agreeing to ship Mike Trout, Ken Giles, and prospect Willy Adames to the Force for Jacoby Ellsbury (to replace Trout), Cody Allen (to replace Giles), and the prize, top 10 prospect Trea Turner, who quite simply will NOT stop hitting. The deal still keeps the Lumberjack's lineup in one piece as well.

Straight-up swap between unkeepable star pitcher and keepable prospect.
Greg Holland, RP
Jacoby Ellsbury, OF
Kole Calhoun, OF
Arodys Vizcaino, RP
The Yanks give up 2 of their top players, both in their final year of contract, in exchange for an elite outfielder in Kole Calhoun, who can be kept next year in a low round, and Vizcaino, a young pitcher who is just about to become the Braves' closer.
