1979 League Contracts and Salaries

Contract status for all teams for the 1979 season (updated 2/19/18). This shows ONLY your salary commitments for the 1979 season, your cap total, and the amount you have to use in free agent bidding and in trades. Your total committed for the next season (1980) can be seen under the "Contracts" link on the web site. Keep in mind that you must also be under cap for any FUTURE seasons, as well, so careful when signing or acquiring players. (Any moves or trades that put you over cap for this or future seasons will be disallowed.) Also shown is the total number of players you have under contract for 1979 (includes expiring contracts).

UNSIGNED ROOKIES THAT YOU DRAFT AND FREE AGENTS PICKED UP DURING THE YEAR CAN BE SIGNED AT THE END OF THE SEASON, USING THE NEXT SEASON'S (1979) BUDGET MONEY, SO NO NEED TO SIGN THEM DURING THE CURRENT YEAR. In fact, you would be wise not to do so. Wait and see how they pan out, and keep that money in your budget for flexibility. The year WILL count against their contract year total if you sign them to a long-term contract, but you do NOT have to sign them until the end of the season.

Athletics -- $70 of $200 / ($130) (15)

Franchised Players and Career Contracts


Read over the rules for Franchising a player (extending his contract by one year) if you are interested in doing so for players currently under contract.

Bidding will close each day at 10 pm ET and if you are not outbid during the proceeding 24 hours, you win the player. If you are, you have the next period to re-up your bid. On the last day (Day 4), team with leading bid gets the player. On Day 2, or 3 or 4, if your bid was not the leading bid on a player you can choose not to re-bid and use that money on another player.

2/20/2018Red Sox Yankees rivalry alive againTrulaia
It may not have the personalities of yesteryear but who knows. Lots of big names. Did the red Sox do enough to keep pace with the Yankees offense? Are the Yankees starters able to compete with the sox rotation? Can the sox piece together a bullpen that comes close to matching the production of the banks?

All makes good stories for the rebirth of baseball in the northeast.
