Welcome to the Auto League

Auto Leagues are seasons that last about two months, 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.

Draft Type:
Quick Draft

Owners Joined:
12 of 12

You can draft your team as soon as you sign up! You will select four years from your favorite team and pick your roster. (The Draft link appears on the league homepage and your team page when you are signed in.)

You can have up to 35 players on your roster, with 10 players in the minors. Any players you don't pick could become free agents.

Supplemental Draft
Once the season begins, you can start ranking players for the supplemental draft, which takes place after Game 3. Free agency will open after the Supplemental Draft runs on Day 4. 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 one 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.

4/24/2019BEST OF THE REST - BYOT Needs Three (3)Jayslater1223
BEST OF THE REST - BYOT is currently seeking 3 new owners. Its a unique "Fave Teams-inspired" spinoff of the now defunct Cooperstown XII - BYOT.

We are completing our Season 3 World Series and will be picking franchises for Season 4 (we redraft franchises each season and keep records.) The 3 new owners are slated to pick 1st, 2nd, and 4th, so you will have a good shot at one of the easier builds if you so choose. Gimme a shout if you wish to join. PC heavy hitters Yankeebb, Dwayne323 are there, among others...

Where arguably, the 12 hardest franchises to build a championship roster with in Favorite Teams leagues converge together, and each owner takes a crack at building a contender out of each club's all-time roster (since 1969).

Why 1969? It was the beginning of the Divisional Era, the ushering of also takes away decided advantages from the Twins and ChiSox, who's '66-'68 teams feature a slew of premium pitching. It also takes away 1968 (The Year of the Pitcher) from all eligible teams. With teams like the Marlins and Rays, it seems like the fairest thing to do. We can discuss teams/cutoff years further.

Each have had their own set of issues when building a roster out of a set of four years chosen by the owner under the normal Fave Teams format. Whether its a lack of dominant offensive years (Tampa Bay, Kansas City) or hard to find pitching (Toronto, Pittsburgh, Colorado) or defense (Miami, San Diego), Best of the Rest - BYOT gives us the opportunity to try to string together the absolute best of what these difficult franchises have to offer.
