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 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 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.

Latest Public Board Post
1/17/201985 innings and under franchise leagueTrulaia
I am writing here in defense of myself and others who have figured out a way to have 2014 Jose Fernandez, 2015 Josh Tomlin, 2018 shohei ohtani and others to be used as starters.

First of all it's not like we have hacked the website or anything nefarious. I do agree that everyone should have the knowledge to use these players as starters.

However I'm getting tired of the negative feedback because these players are being used as starters. Tomlin started 10 games and has TWO COMPLETE GAMES. Why should he be a reliever? Shohei ohtani is an exciting new starter in the league and we want to simulate the season as if he were a reliever? So yes, people, including myself found the loop hole to make them a starter. However the are SUPPOSED to be starters. They definitely should have a very low pitch count, but I'll be damned if anyone can make the case that any of these types of guys should be relievers. Its NOT REALISTIC...and this game is supposed to simulate REALITY.

So please stop chastising those that know the loop hole. Here it is:

Draft a franchise team, then save it to be used later, the import that same team and those guys now qualify as starters. Its realistic and everyone should be able to do this.
