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....
It's Patriot's Day
Red Sox First pitch, 11:05am
Rosters lock 11:00am
...I automatically approve all trades involving other teams, so I can track objections...I accidentally accepted one that was involving me.
Please reject the trade, or I will reverse it when it goes through....
Just 'cause no one else did.
And, I wanted to brag about Walker & Votto.
I needed a place for that, just saying.
BTW, some teams are playing other teams and at least 50% will win.
My son tried to start this thread, but doesn't have rights to start a thread...
Miko trades away Jameson Taillon (mL SP) and Drew Hutchison (SP)
Planet Express gives up Wily Peralta (SP)
The Marauders will send SP Hyun-Yin Ryu to the Dalek Code in return for SP Jose Quintana & mL OF Joc Pedersen. This deal came together quite quickly. The Marauders have always liked Quintana and are happy that they had a chance to acquire him. We are also happy to add a talent like Pedersen to the farm system.
Force get: OF Justin Upton
PE gets: RH Alex Cobb (1 keep remaining, drafted 17th this year).
So right now it's 3 days. It actualy works out to be 4 when you factor in the day the player was dropped.
My opinion: too long. We have unlimited transactions so guys are picked up and dropped constantly. My preference would be 1 day, making it 2 total but I don't see that getting support. So I propose a 2 day waiver period. This way any players dropped up until Friday would be available by the time rosters lock on Monday.
It seems like many people want to increase the amount of DL spots. I'm on board with it. We have a few options. Add a couple to what we have now or make it unlimited.
With the increase comes a possible issue. If we only increase by 1 or 2 spots it would stay as is I assume. However unlimited opens up the possibility of hoarding DL guys. Meaning anyone could go into the FA pool and pick up any and all guys on the DL and put them on their bench without affecting their team until they...
The Marauders will send SS Francisco Lindor to the Carolina Force for SP Jake Odorizzi.
Baseball America has Lindor listed as the 13th best prospect before the season began while Odorizzi is ranked as the 67th. The Marauders felt that they were a little thin in the SP dept. and this trade helps them acquire a young keepable SP. Hopefully he has a quick learning curve in the Tampa Bay rotation and becomes the next great product to come out of the Rays organization. Lindor will be missed...
Okay, there was a little support when I brought it up. I'd really love to see this happen. With 2 fewer teams the player pool got bigger. This would be great for depth IMO. Whenever someone gets injured you wind up scrambling for players and going along with what I wrote in the other thread with such a long waiver period it's hard to find them I just find it difficult to manage any depth, so this helps.
I know that this makes strategy very important and I see the positive in it making...

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.
