CONTRACT INFO GOOGLE DOC -- 2016 Keepers

 

CONTRACT INFO GOOGLEDOC -- End of 2015


In prior years, Zilla held an auction at his palacial home each year. It was a weekend of beer, fun and baseball that folks from around this great country would flock to.

Today, Zilla is a very important and busy man. He doesn't have time to entertain the plebes. However, he does have time to participate in an online auction. How will we do it? Hell, I don't know. I have ideas, but that isn't settled yet. (goog hangout, chat, message board, whatever) What's important is we start getting the league filled out now. You could be a part of it!

still a chance of in person shticking? logistically, could be ruff. we actually have rules, which i am sure tre will post here shortly for nerdly discussion.

some things to remember:

-this was a good league and you'll feel important hobnobbing with board illuminaries.

-there will be lots of griping and angst.

-the food won't be good and i might be upset enough to make snide comments about it.

-i will provide chips.

-zilla is very important and his privacy is our utmost concern at this point.

-i am not 'your boy'.

We've got some time to pick up good pwners who want to play. Then I think we all just need to clear out a Saturday or Sunday and make it happen.

I would've played if I knew there was a chance of getting James Loney for less than $15, but looks like that's out the window with you-know-who on board.

I will throw my hat into the ring if you'll have me. Look at it as more of a donation more than anything else.

I'm just gonna copy these rules back over from the old league. I was out last year so I'm not sure if anything changed, but now I am back in. These still look rightish.

I would definitely be down with going to OBP as BA feels antiquated and too many "good" hitters are liabilities there

Personally I like weekly lineups and no official innings limit but I think I am the only one

It's all up for debate, as always I want what the people want

Zilla Auction league rules 2013

Entry fee is $115, which includes $15 toward the CBS site fee.

- At auction, you have $260- to spend on 29 players including declared keepers: 13 offensive (c,1b,3b,corner,2b,ss,middle,of,of,of,of,ut,ut), 9 pitchers, 7 bench

- CONTRACT RULES: A player obtained at auction may be kept at the bid price for 2 seasons. Following the second season, the owner must decide whether to extend that player for 2 more seasons at a $5 increase, or option the player for one more season at the same price, after which time the player would go back into the player pool. If the player is extended, the owner may choose after the fourth season to keep the player for one more year at a $5 increase, or place the player back into the pool. No player will be kept longer than 5 years.

- FAAB waivers will run every Friday and Sunday night during the season at approximately midnight. Each owner will have a $100 free agent spending cap.

- All players obtained via FAAB waivers in season, prior to 7/31, are contracted at the price for which they were obtained and subjected to the contract rules as outlined above. Players obtained after 7/31 may not be kept beyond that season.

- Any player may be dropped at any time without penalty, and that player's contract status will go back to 0. However, when an owner drops a player during the week, he may not bid on that player the following waiver period.

- Each team has three injured reserve spots. If an owner has a player in that spot who has been off of the DL for more than a week going into a scoring period, the commissioner will remove that player from the owner's roster.

- It is each team’s responsibility to make sure roster is in compliance at all times. Commissioner will spot check and back date errors.

- Scoring is traditional 5X5: BA, HR, R, RBI, SB / ERA, K, S, W, WHIP

- Daily lineups, there are no position games-played limits, scoring periods are Monday through Sunday. Each week's overall winner will be awarded $20. Ties will result in splitting that prize.

- As of 2012 season, there is a 1400 innings pitched limit.

- Player position eligibility is 10 games during previous season or 5 games during current season.

- Trade deadline is 8/15.

- Teams will keep 9-12 players each season. For players that are eligible, owner will declare "option" or "extend," as per the contract rules. Keeper due date will be provided by the commissioner and is based on the date of the auction.

- Any changes made to a keeper list between the keeper deadline and auction, due to extenuating circumstances concerning a kept player (injury, etc), will be left to commissioner discretion.

- At auction and preseason, a salary cap of $260- will be enforced

- In season, a salary cap of $320- will be enforced. The initial waiver run (the Friday before the season) is considered "in season" and has the extended cap.

- Prize distribution is $375 / $175 / $85 / $45 for 12 team league plus weekly winnings ($20 a week for 26 weeks)

- Prize distribution is $400 / $200 / $110 / $70 for 13 team league plus weekly winnings ($20 a week for 26 weeks)

- If season is cancelled for any reason, including Player Action, stats and standings will be FINAL, with prize money distributed accordingly.

- Postseason play-in games will not count. Make-up games played after the last scheduled day of the regular season will count.

update on the auction process?

Sounds like we might be able to do it live on ESPN for free. Their site isn't up yet though, so I'm Joe biding.

Ok, Shuke and Pickles are out and I haven't heard anything from Badger. Judd and I are cutting it at 14 so we don't dilute the player pool too much. Here's who I show as in:

1. TRE

2. Judd

3. GM

4. X

5. Kraft

6. Bogart

7. Eephus
8. Pumpnick

9. Cosjobs

10. guru_007

11. sammy - looking for a co-manager

12. Greco

13. Northern Voice

14. Stryker - Looking for a partner - Hell Toupee? Or could partner with Sammy and give HT his own place at the table.

On the outside looking in: Hell Toupee

Next steps:

1. Determine if ESPN will fit our auction needs and if not, what are the alternatives. Not too keen on dropping $160 for CBS sportsline unless we all want to add to our league fees and split the cost.

2. Hammer out any rules that need hammering

3. Determine a date we can auction.

4. Profit
