Lead Story - 5/14/2019
1993-1994 Offseason ScheduleProgressions and imports are completed.
Please check that you received all ypur players, especially those under 50/25 that import (35/18).
If you received any players under 50/25 that you would prefer to have deleted and re-imported for 1995 or later, please message me. This will be only be done for players under 50/25 this strike year.
Please note that if you have such a player deleted, you will not get them back if they play for another team in our league the next time they meet the at bat/innings minimum.
Monday, May 6, 11pm EST.
DEADLINE to be at 45 players.
Slow draft will begin immediately, once all teams are at 45. Any team not at 45 players or less will be skipped. You may prerank. If you prefer, you may notify the commissioner to draft from your preranked list. This will help us move the draft along smoothly and start the season sooner.
Official daily drafting time is between 9am and 1am EST. Teams will have eight hours to pick, excluding time between 1am to 9am EST. You may pick during that time but these hours do not count towards your eight hours if you cannot.
PLEASE NOTE that if you miss your window, but have preranked, you will have a player selected off your list. However, if you fail to prerank and also miss your window, you will not receive a player.
Teams may go over 45 players to a maximum of 48.
Open Free Agency: Tuesday, May 14 at 11 pm EST.
WAIVERS will be on. Teams may put a total of 5 names on the list for any given game day. Initial order for determining who gets a player will be by team strength. Players will not be added to teams until after games have been simmed each day.
Please note that user sim will be off initially. Waivers did not work after user sim in one of my other leagues this week. I mentioned the issue to Guy but do not know yet if it has been corrected. I will aim to allow at least seven or eight hours between sims to give everyone a chance to "sign" players to the waiver list.
