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 7/2/2022 4:09 AM PT.

Draft Type:
Daily Draft

Owners Joined:
12 of 12
You can start ranking players for the draft as soon as you sign up! (The Draft link appears on the league homepage and your team page when you are signed in.)

Once the league fills, a draft round will run once every eight hours until all teams have 23 players. Once the draft is complete games will begin! Free agency opens after the first games. Please be sure to read the League Rules for further details!
This is NOT a keeper league, so once your team's season is over, you can stay in this league and re-draft next season, or quit and join a new Auto League.
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.

7/1/2022 Secondary positions - a modest krtyler11
I generally agree with this idea. If I'm understanding it correctly - let's say you've got a SS/3b whose fielding% is .950 and DWar is 2.0. If you played him at 3b he'd get a fielding% of .950/.970 (the average SS) * .963 (the average 3b) = .943. Sounds good. You could probably figure out the average DWars of all the positions and do the same. Let's say the average DWar for SS is 1.2 and 3b 0.4. Then 2.0/1.2*.4 = +0.67. That seems reasonable

It's when the secondary position is more challenging than the primary that you'd have to build in some penalties. Say 1934 Lou Gehrig 1b/SS. We wouldn't want his .994 fielding% and -0.4 DWar at 1b (that DWar is really strong for 1b) to translate to a .970 / 3.0 DWar shortstop with a 1.171 OPS.
