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. Next sim around 10/22/2020 11:05 PM PT.

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 drafts, which take place after Games 2 & 3. Free agency (waivers) will open after the Supplemental Draft runs on Day 4. Please be sure to read the League Rules for further details!

This is a Keeper League, which means you have $50 million to spend on keepers for next season. You must sign at least one player to a contract before the season ends, or you'll automatically be removed from the league after the World Series. Players under contract remain on their teams, all other players return to free agency for the next Quick Draft.

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.

10/22/2020 Plus-Arm Questionragingsol
The original post was borne from importing the entire 2020 class and being surprised that zero catchers imported with a plus-arm.

Also, there were ten OF that had a plus-arm upon import, but none of those OF (Jeff McNeil, Chris Taylor, Dylan Moore, Jurickson Profar, Whit Merrifield, Mauricio Dubon, Nick Solak, Yoshi Tsutsugo, Dee Gordon, Tzu-Wei Lin) were actually among the 2020 MLB leaders in OF assists. Each of the listed players accumulated their assists as part-time IF.

All of this about the OF assists is already known, but the catchers having zero plus-arm was a surprise. I recalled the 40% from somewhere (the blog post), but with zero catchers importing as plus-arm, I thought I was missing something.

Problem was solved for the Ultimate PC Championship (UPCC) database by the following baseball-reference pages:

Catchers, at the "Player Fielding - C":
https://www.baseball-reference.com/..

OFs:
https://www.baseball-reference.com/..
Don't know if the master 2020 database has the OFs from that baseball-reference page as plus-arms, my assumption is that the master PC database has the OF/IF players that import with plus-arms, most of whom didn't have too many OF assists.

Not asking for anything to change, no complaint about plus-arms; just sharing information. No idea how to tie-in the actual data for OF assists to imported players.
