Welcome to the Auto League

Auto Leagues are seasons that last about two months (baseball) or one month (basketball), with 2 or 3 sims per day. Since this league is run with essentially no commissioner, there is a trade limit. Please be reasonable with your transactions, and report any bad owners using the feedback form.

League Status:
Season underway. Next sim around 7/4/2022 4:25 AM PT.

Draft Type:
Quick Draft

Owners Joined:
12 of 12
You can draft your team as soon as you sign up! You will select one player from each positional group until you have 23 players. (The Draft link appears on the league homepage and your team page when you are signed in.)

The draft only represents a random subset of players available. Once the season begins, you can adjust your roster via free agency or trades. (You can carry up to 25 players on your major league roster.)

Supplemental Draft
Once the season begins, you can start ranking players for the supplemental drafts, which take place after Games 2 & 3. Free agency (waivers) will open after the Supplemental Draft runs on Day 4. Please be sure to read the League Rules for further details!
This is a Keeper League, which means you have $55 million to spend on keepers for next season. You must sign at least one player to a contract before the season ends, or you'll automatically be removed from the league after the World Series. Players under contract remain on their teams, all other players return to free agency for the next Quick Draft.
When do games start?
After all teams have an owner and have drafted, the games will begin. You will get an email after the first game notifying you that the league has started.

What time are games played?
Barring any issues with the servers, games are auto-simmed 2 or 3 times a day, starting as early as 1:00am and ending as late as 11:00pm Pacific Time. Users can sim games from the My League List page every eight hours. This allows the league to keep moving if the server has issues or the participants in the league want to move the season along slightly faster than the auto sims allow. There will always be at least eight hours between games so managers can react if desired.

Can I customize my team?
Yes! You can change your team name, logo, and more via the "Owner Console" on your "My Team" page before the season begins and up until the 5th game of the season.

World Series and post-season
Division winners and three wild card reach the post-season. Owners can leave the league once their team is elimnated, or wait until the playoffs are over and re-draft the next season.

I'm always eager to here what you enjoy or think can be improved with the site, so stay in touch via the feedback form and follow site updates on the news & notes page.

No and no. You see there, in English, where it says it bypassed my long reliever for a starter who was not on any depth chart. See that, in English, written out there, that you didn't read? You don't bypass who I say is the better pitcher and put in a guy who isn't listed on any depth chart. In English, that you didn't read, my long reliever wasn't used. And if this idiocy were to have gone an intelligent way, you'd bring in a long reliever BEFORE you bring in my closer IN A TIE GAME when I said NOT TO DO THAT and burn him for tomorrow in a game he might have saved. And if it was gong to bypass people, bypass my closer for this pitcher I didn't want in the game or I would have had him on a depth chart. Your actual defense of this is it's smarter to burn my closer in a tie game than burn either or both of TWO starting pitchers. Long relievers are rarely used in this "game" anyway but closers are called on OFTEN but burn my closer DESPITE MY SETTINGS. And you can't claim it put my closer in because he's the better pitcher if it put in a pitcher I say is WORSE than my long reliever or that on no depth chart pitcher WOULD HAVE BEEN ON A DEPTH CHART!
