2006 Hot Stove League


Welcome to the 2005 winter meeting here in Dallas. Here is a timeline of the 2006 season up to the start of the season:

#Friday (17 May)- All rookies have been imported to your team. IF there is anyone I missed, let me know. I will do a final sweep for missing players as my last chore before the season starts. I have opened drops, trades and ranking for the Supplemental draft. PLEASE use the draft if you're still short of players or have a position not manned. The minimum effort I ask is to have your team ready before the season starts. At least have an eligible player to cover an open position and your roster/lineup done.....

- In the meantime, I will convert any dh positions to their second and third position that they've played in real life. I will be take requests for SP/RP conversion, provided they have pitched as both. This should give you guys enough time to trade and drop your roster down to 28 players until....

#Thursday(MAY 23 7am PST)- Reminders will be sent out the day before the cutoff(Wednesday morning) so you can rank players. Drops turned off for supplemental draft. If you have not dropped to 28 players, I will do this for you but you might not like who I choose to drop(ie -based on players' ranking regardless of age/potential.)

#Friday morning(MAY 24@ 7am pst)- DRAFT DAY If you are looking to pick up players via the draft, you can drop as much as three more players because the draft is five rounds. You will need to rank your picks, this will not be automatic. The draft will be set up so you can raise your roster up to 30 players.

#Saturday morning(25 MAY)- Spring training starts with 8 games a day for 3 days ending Monday night. Your minor league, free agency and drops will open after the eighth game(first day of spring training) which will be around 6pm(give or take an hour)PST.

PLEASE break camp before the season starts by setting your rotation and your lineup and to send your players to your minor league camp to get your major league roster down to 25 players!

#Tuesday morning(28 MAY)- Season starts! Please have your 5-man rotation and lineup set. I DON'T WANT TO GO INTO YOUR TEAM AND SET UP YOUR ROSTER/ROTATION! I will fix your lineup/rotation if not done beforehand.

If you are wondering who I have listed as injured or DNP, message me and I'll send a team list with the year I have them listed as returning to your team(or free agents). If there is any questions or you are missing someone, let me know.

There is two new inductees to the Hall Of Fame and there will be two new nominees for the Veteran's committee.
I will post the Veteran's Committee Hall Of Fame nominees once the season starts and the new inductees at the All Star Game.

On the subject of using the waiver option for this league, I will hold off on that until I post it as a poll for the 2007 season. Reason is that I want to see how the feedback would be and to work out the kinks before we see if we want to use it.

Welcome to the 2004 winter meeting here in New Orleans. Here is a timeline of the 2005 season up to the start of the season:

#Wednesday (20 MAR)- All rookies have been imported to your team. IF there is anyone I missed, let me know. I will do a final sweep for missing players as my last chore before the season starts. I have opened drops, trades and ranking for the Supplemental draft. PLEASE use the draft if you're still short of players or have a position not manned. The minimum effort I ask is to have your team ready before the season starts. At least have an eligible player to cover an open position and your roster/lineup done.....

- I will convert any dh positions to their second and third position that they've played in real life. I will be take requests for SP/RP conversion, provided they have pitched as both. This should give you guys enough time to trade and drop your roster down to 28 players until....

#Monday(MAR 25 7am PST)- Reminders will be sent out the day before the cutoff(Sunday morning) so you can rank players. Drops turned off for supplemental draft. If you have not dropped to 28 players, I will do this for you but you might not like who I choose to drop(ie -based on players' ranking regardless of age/potential.)

#Tuesday morning(MAR 26@ 7am pst)- DRAFT DAY If you are looking to pick up players via the draft, you can drop as much as three more players because the draft is five rounds. You will need to rank your picks, this will not be automatic. The draft will be set up so you can raise your roster up to 30 players.

New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians will get extra picks after the Supplemental draft is done. Yankees will receive two and Indians will receive one player due to their roster size(NY-21/CLE-24). Their order is NY/CLE/NY

#Wednesday morning(27 MAR)- Spring training starts with 8 games a day for 3 days ending Friday night. Your minor league, free agency and drops will open after the eighth game(day 1) which will be around 6pm(give or take an hour)PST.

Please break camp before the season starts by setting your rotation, your lineup and sending players to your minor league camp to get your major league roster down to 25 players!

#Saturday morning(30 MAR)- Season starts! Please have your 5-man rotation and lineup set. I DON'T WANT TO GO INTO YOUR TEAM AND SET UP YOUR ROSTER/ROTATION! I will fix your lineup/rotation if not done beforehand.

###The following teams are available if you would like to switch teams now:
Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago White Sox, Houston Astros, Tampa Bay and Texas Rangers. Teams will be open to anyone else on the public boards after this post.

If you are wondering who I have listed as injured or DNP, message me and I'll send a team list with the year I have them listed as returning to your team(or free agents). If there is any questions or you are missing someone, let me know.

Supplemental Draft Order

New York Mets
Colorado Rockies
Milwaukee Brewers
Detroit Tigers
Chicago Cubs
Kansas City Royals
Boston Red Sox
Arizona Diamondbacks
Tampa Bay Devil Rays
Cincinnati Reds
San Francisco Giants
Philadelphia Phillies
Los Angeles Dodgers
Toronto Blue Jays

Baltimore Orioles
Cleveland Indians
Oakland Athletics
Seattle Mariners
New York Yankees
Houston Astros
Florida Marlins
Chicago White Sox
Atlanta Braves
St Louis Cardinals
Montreal Expos
San Diego Padres
Minnesota Twins
Anaheim Angels
Pittsburgh Pirates

There is three new inductees to the Hall Of Fame and there will be five a new nominees for the Veteran's committee.
I will post the Veteran's Committee Hall Of Fame nominees once the season starts and the new inductees at the All Star Game.

I have a poll posted on opening up the league to new players. The poll will remain on the league page by the start of the season. Should I post this on the Public Board?

Should all teams be played by an owner and not the league?

Yes, because all teams should have an owner.
No, don't need rookies messing their team or league.

On one hand, it does take extra time from me but teams would have unique owners.
On the other hand, I play the vacant teams the same and core of the team remains intact but might get owner that brings the league down like those making 16 trades in two days.....
