    I hope none of you are looking to win the most none, because the Evil Empire plans on running away with the most none prize money.

    Cool! I don't mind paying for leagues (I've spent almost $100 on leagues this year) but I like being able to play for a prize. (Only one of my pay-leagues has a prize at the end).

    I won one of my leagues last year. It was $170. We run it on Yahoo for free so all the buy ins go for prize money.

    For future reference, I don't mind kicking in a few extra bucks for a prize in the future. I feel bad that Kevin paid for the auction.

    Well, I had suggested that since the "second league" was originally going to be a $10 league with all the proceeds going to Jim, that when it became a $25 league that we send $10 pp to Jim, plus the $130 cost of the league, (which with 13 players was another $10 pp) then keep the rest for prizes.

    $65 for prizes is not much, but at least a goal. $45 for the winner, $20 for second or something...or $45 for the winner and a $20 trophy.

    But I got voted down.

    Re: Auction League Questions

    Hey $65 is still something to shoot for.

    Maybe we could persuade Jim to put the winner in a big flashing banner on the main page for everyone to see, and the winner to gloat.

    It wouldn't be a cash prize...something more valuable...a greater source of pride...

    Re: Auction League Questions

    Ok, I think we need to revise the trade rules a bit. I'm not sure I like the way they are set up.

    Let me know what you think...

    IX. TRADES

    9.1. From the completion of the major league auction until the first day of the major league season, rotisserie league teams are free to make trades of any kind without limit and without position requirements.

    9.2. From the first day of the major league season until midnight of All-star day, rotisserie league teams are free to make trades of any kind without limit, so long as the active rosters of both teams involved in a trade reflect the required position distribution upon completion of the transaction. This would include subsequent pickups, drops, etc.

    9.3. From the Wednesday after the scheduled All-star game through August 31, trades may take place freely between teams within 2 spots either way in the current standings. No other trade may take place (1st place may trade with any of the 2nd 3rd or 4th place teams; Last may trade with the 2nd 3rd or 4th last teams).


    9.4. No trade may take place from September 1 until the last day of the regular season.

    9.5. Trades made from the last day of the regular season until two weeks before the major league auction are not bound by the position distribution requirement.

    9.6. No trade may take place from two weeks before the auction until the auction. Trades are official once both sides have posted the trade online.

    9.7. There are no limits to the number of trades a team may make during the season.

    9.8. Minor league draft picks and auction money may not be traded at any time.
    My issue is with the bolded items. Lets debate their merit.

    I'd dump them both. I could understand having them in a non-keeper league, but if a team in 1st place wants to make a trade with the team in 4th place after the ASG, I think it should be allowed. And what happens if you spend 3 or 4 days negotiating a deal, and in the interm, the spread goes from two spots to three spots?

    The spread thing is my biggest issue, and I think we should scrap it.

    I think there needs to be SOME deadline, though...

    Re: Auction League Questions

    I don't know that I like that either..I understand the merit of the suggestion, but part of baseball is teams who are rebuilding trading with the team that offers them the best prospects/cheap players for their stars. Why not just go from Opening Day to August 1st with any trade being allowed and then ending trading, like real baseball?

    Re: Auction League Questions

    When is MLB "official trade" deadline? If it is around the time Eric suggested, then we should implement that.

    August 31st is the real deadline. (And it was Kevin who suggested it )

    I'd be in favor of an 8/31 deadline for trades.

    Re: Auction League Questions

    I actually have 2 questions:

    When do we let Commish (?) know who our keepers are, after the season? Spring training-2 weeks before start of season?

    If a player was bid on for $1 and is signed to a long term contract (4 years) the salary is $5 for 4 years or is it $9 for 4 years or what?

    RIP Pete Cheng; the commish will be missed.
