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....

I've never been so annoyed that I drafted Miggy in a draft in my life.
My plan was to draft two SP early, which I never do, since I had kept 5 batters. Was all set with Felix and then was thrown for a loop. Miggy? Pick 3? How can I pass him for Price or Scherzer? I can't. I don't care about format. It's just wrong. I panicked as my mouse hovered over Scherzer.
By the time my next pick comes by all the pitching is gone. I expected it to go heavy, but sh1t man, barren on the top. ...
It's week 2. Who will make the first trade? Who will sell his/her team first? Who will climb onto a ledge? Who will do the writeup?
Here we go, another fabulous season for the NYYFans Fantasy Baseball League. The Cubbies and the Cardies start things off tonight (4/5/15) as the season gets underway.
Everyone is in first place and, interestingly enough, everyone is in last place. Everyone has hopes for a Champjonship. Everyone is still in the race. Everyone should be ready. With the draft in the rear view mirror and the final tweaking of rosters all but complete AND the rapidly moving minor league draft smoothly...
The 2015 Minor League Draft will start Monday, March 30th at 8:00am
While the draft is running, please refrain from picking up any minor league players from the wire until it is over.
Draft order is reverse of major league draft, but any expansion teams pick first.
You have 24 hours to make your pick.
Please post your pick in large font, bolded font, colored font, anything that will make your pick stand out from the conversations.
Attached is the Constitution with updates. Please review and approve or suggest changes.
The deletions are in brackets in red] and additions are underlined in blue.
Once everyone has reviewed this, I will start a new thread for a poll approving the changes.
After a very eventful ML draft, it's time to get the season started.
Waivers will start on the 26th. They will last two days. Waiver order is in reverse order of points last year. Free agency will be after the waivers have run.
From now onwards you MAY NOT pick up any player who still has minor league eligibility - that is, less than 130 AB or 50 IP - until the mL draft ends.
Start date for the mL draft upcoming.
