Montgomery $14HERE IS A SUMMARY OF OUR LEAGUE RULES TSM’S “Real” Fantasy Baseball League – 2018 We will use Yahoo sports to administer the league. The site is currently Free. It is not perfect, but we have found it to be reliable. I do not expect any issues, but if you see problems that need to be fixed, let me know ASAP and I will address them in a timely manner. Below is a summary of league rules. The rules will be updated and modified from time to time as the commissioner deems necessary. There may be some issues with the implementation of the rules depending on the functionality of the website. If there are any issues or disputes within the league, or with the system functionality, the commissioner will make a determination and all commissioner decisions will be final. The league is being built and designed for all league members to have fun and enjoy the league. There is an expectation that all league participates do not take any actions that harm the integrity of the league. If the commissioner determines a team or any participant in the league, has harmed, or is harming the integrity of the league – the commissioner can take any actions he deems to be appropriate. The commissioner will make these determinations as needed, as his sole discretion, and will take actions as needed. If a team owner is removed from the league during the middle of a season, the team will be managed by the commissioner (or someone the commissioner appoints) for the remainder of the season. That team owner will be entitled to 50% of the money that team makes in that season with 50% going to the commissioner for compensation to deal with that problem team. If a team leaves the league for any reason either voluntarily or because they have been removed by the commissioner – they will not be entitled to any money that is within any of the record or carryover pools. That money will become property of the league. League Rules: Each team will have 22 players plus 3 open DL spots for injured players. Each day a line-up will be set it will include: 1 first base 1 2nd base 1 3rd base 1 shortstop 1 catcher 3 outfielders 1 utility hitter 5 starting pitchers 2 relief pitchers Position eligibility will be determined by the Yahoo system. Scoring categories will be: Offensive – Runs, HR, Extra Base hits, RBIs, Stolen bases and OBP Pitching – Wins, Saves, Strikeouts, Quality starts, ERA, WHIP (a team must have a minimum of 25 innings pitched in a week to get any pitching points) Four (4) pick-ups will be allowed each week. If a player is selected off of waivers, a rolling list will be used, so if a team takes a player off of waivers they will move to the bottom of the list. The waiver period for any player that is cut will be 6 days. Players will be eligible for pick-up once they are added to the yahoo system. Prospects not in the yahoo system can not be picked up. Pick-ups are prohibited until the first day of the Major League Baseball Season. The system will be set to block player pick-ups until 2:01 AM CST March 29, 2018 (The start of week #1). If a player is not added to our league universe of players in a timely fashion (by the date he makes his major league debut), the commissioner will work with the league administrator (Yahoo) to get the player added. Once the player is added to the player universe, the player will be made available to the league on the date he would have been made available if he had been properly added to the system (all new players must go through the league waiver period – then they become free-agents). If the date the player would have become a free agent has past, then the player will be made a free agent by the commissioner as soon as the commissioner sees he is added to the player universe, and the league will be notified by e-mail of the addition of the player. The commissioner will not pick up the player until 6 hours have past from the time of league notification. Trades are allowed and will be processed by the system immediately. All trades will be reviewed by the commissioner and will be reversed if deemed detrimental to the league (anything short of obvious collusion will not be vetoed). In the event of a vetoed trade, if the player is used on a given day his stats will be changed to zero. The trade deadline will be August 5th 2018. There will be a player carryover at the end of each season. Every fourth year we will start over and no one will be kept. So there will be a carryover in 2018 from 2017, in 2019 from 2018, and 2020 from 2019. In 2021 we will start over. This cycle will continue into perpetuity. In carry over years, each team will be allowed to keep up to three players (teams may also keep two players, one player or none at their discretion). For purposes of the carryover, rosters will be locked at the end of the regular season. For teams that make the playoffs, roster changes made during the playoffs will not affect the players available for carryover in the following season. The value assigned to the player will be: For players drafted (or carried over) and kept all season $4 plus their original purchase price or carryover value. For undrafted players picked up after the draft $10 plus $4 = $14 For players that were drafted (or carried over), dropped and then picked up again, the value will be the original purchase price (carryover value if applicable) or $10 which ever is greater plus $4. Traded players will have the same value as they would have had without being traded. If a tie occurs at the end of the season for either divisions or wildcards, the tie breaker will be head to head record between the tied teams. (The system does not allow a set up for this – but I suspect it is the default). If the system does not work this way – I will override the system at the end of the season. If teams are tied head to head, then the team with the most wins for the season will win. If the teams are still tied, then the team with the most offensive points won for the season will win the tie breaker. There will be 6 playoff teams. Playoffs will be week #22,23,24 – we will not play the last week of the major league season. The two division winners will be the #1 and #2 seeds for the playoffs and will receive a first round BYE week. Then next four best teams by record, will be the wildcards, and will be seeded based on their record. There will be reseeding - the highest seed will always play the lowest seed in the playoffs. If there is a tie in the play-off’s the higher seed will win the game. League fees for 2017 will be $170. League fees are due by 3/15/2018. Payoff’s for 2018 (assuming 12 teams) will be: Top division winner $240 2nd division winner $170 Top wild card $125 2nd Wildcard $90 3rd and 4th wildcards $0 League Champion $500 League runner up $275 3rd Place $175 Records – will only be paid out if the existing Record from 2017 is beaten. If the record is not beaten in 2018, the money will carry over to 2019. If more than one team beats or ties a record, the team that holds the record at the end of the season will get the money, the other team will not receive any money. Payouts for 2018 – if records at beaten or tied. i) Most runs one week $15 ii) Most homeruns one week $15 iii) Most RBI’s one week $15 iv) Most stolen bases one week $15 v) Most extra base hits one week $15 vi) Highest OBP one week (min 175 AB) $15 vii) Most runs regular season $15 viii) Most homeruns regular season $15 ix) Most RBIs regular season $15 x) Most stolen bases regular season $15 xi) Most extra base hits regular season $15 xii) Highest OBP regular season $15 xiii) Most wins one week $15 xiv) Most Strikeouts one week $15 xv) Most saves one week $15 xvi) Most quality starts one week $15 xvii) Lowest ERA one week (min 40 innings) $15 xviii) Lowest WHIP one week (min 40 innings) $15 ixx) Most wins regular season $15 xx) Most strikeouts regular season $15 xxi) Most saves regular season $15 xxii) Most quality starts regular season $15 xxiii) Lowest ERA regular season $15 xxiv) Lowest Whip regular season $15 xxv) Best regular season record $15 xxvi) Most consecutive division titles (min 2) $30 xxvii) Most consecutive Playoff appearances (when we have a sole record set) $30 xxviii) Back to back champion $100 (back pool starts at $300) – Jeff Motz Eligible in 2018 weekly records can not be established or broken during week #1 – which will be an extended week this season, and the extended week around the All Star Break (with the exception of OBP, ERA and WHIP) weekly records can be established or broken in the playoffs regular season records are established in weeks 1-21 and exclude the playoffs new records are paid out for tied records and new records at the end of the season. Records are recorded at the end of the season, for example if a runs record is set in 2017 at 60 for one week and in 2018 someone beats that record with 61 in week 3 of the season and then someone gets 62 later in the season. 62 would be the new record and would be paid out, the person that got 61 would get nothing. League payoffs will be made within 3 days after the end of the playoffs. 10) Commissioner fee $10 for miscellaneous admin costs. Regarding carryover money – If the league dissolves all carry over money will be kept by the by the commissioner for the risk taken guaranteeing the record pools for the first year, and for his years of service as commissioner. 11) League Schedule – 12 teams each team will play a 21 week season – this will include 10 games within their division (will play everyone twice) and 11 games outside the division will play everyone twice with the exception of one team. As teams confirm they are entering the league they will be randomly assigned a team number. Teams 1-6 will be in the Eastern division, Teams 7-12 will be in the Western Division. Each year team numbers will be randomly selected resulting in owners changing team number and divisions from year to year. Here is the league schedule Week 1: 1-6 2-5 3-4 7-12 8-11 9-10 Week 2: 1-8 2-9 3-10 4-11 5-12 6-7 Week 3: 1-5 2-4 3-6 7-11 8-10 9-12 Week 4: 1-9 2-10 3-11 4-12 5-7 6-8 Week 5: 1-4 2-3 5-6 7-10 8-9 11-12 Week 6: 1-3 2-6 4-5 7-9 8-12 10-11 Week 7: 1-10 2-11 3-12 4-7 5-8 6-9 Week 8: 1-2 3-5 4-6 7-8 9-11 10-12 Week 9: 1-11 2-12 3-7 4-8 5-9 6-10 Week 10: 1-12 2-7 3-8 4-9 5-10 6-11 Week 11: 1-7 2-8 3-9 4-10 5-11 6-12 Week 12: 1-10 2-11 3-12 4-7 5-8 6-9 Week 13: 1-6 2-5 3-4 7-12 8-11 9-10 Week 14: 1-5 2-4 3-6 7-11 8-10 9-12 Week 15: 1-9 2-10 3-11 4-12 5-7 6-8 Week 16: 1-11 2-12 3-7 4-8 5-9 6-10 Week 17: 1-8 2-9 3-10 4-11 5-12 6-7 Week 18:1-4 2-3 5-6 7-10 8-9 11-12 Week 19: 1-12 2-7 3-8 4-9 5-10 6-11 Week 20: 1-3 2-6 4-5 7-9 8-12 10-11 Week 21: 1-2 3-5 4-6 7-8 9-11 10-12 Week 22-24 – playoffs 12) We will have a $260 auction draft.

If a player is selected off of waivers, a rolling list will be used, so if a team takes a player off of waivers they will move to the bottom of the list. The waiver period for any player that is cut will be 6 days. Players will be eligible for pick-up once they are added to the yahoo system. Prospects not in the yahoo system can not be picked up. Pick-ups are prohibited until the first day of the Major League Baseball Season. The system will be set to block player pick-ups until 2:01 AM CST March 29, 2018 (The start of week #1). If a player is not added to our league universe of players in a timely fashion (by the date he makes his major league debut), the commissioner will work with the league administrator (Yahoo) to get the player added. Once the player is added to the player universe, the player will be made available to the league on the date he would have been made available if he had been properly added to the system (all new players must go through the league waiver period – then they become free-agents). If the date the player would have become a free agent has past, then the player will be made a free agent by the commissioner as soon as the commissioner sees he is added to the player universe, and the league will be notified by e-mail of the addition of the player. The commissioner will not pick up the player until 6 hours have past from the time of league notification. Trades are allowed and will be processed by the system immediately. All trades will be reviewed by the commissioner and will be reversed if deemed detrimental to the league (anything short of obvious collusion will not be vetoed). In the event of a vetoed trade, if the player is used on a given day his stats will be changed to zero. The trade deadline will be August 5th 2018. There will be a player carryover at the end of each season. Every fourth year we will start over and no one will be kept. So there will be a carryover in 2018 from 2017, in 2019 from 2018, and 2020 from 2019. In 2021 we will start over. This cycle will continue into perpetuity. In carry over years, each team will be allowed to keep up to three players (teams may also keep two players, one player or none at their discretion). For purposes of the carryover, rosters will be locked at the end of the regular season. For teams that make the playoffs, roster changes made during the playoffs will not affect the players available for carryover in the following season. The value assigned to the player will be: For players drafted (or carried over) and kept all season $4 plus their original purchase price or carryover value. For undrafted players picked up after the draft $10 plus $4 = $14 For players that were drafted (or carried over), dropped and then picked up again, the value will be the original purchase price (carryover value if applicable) or $10 which ever is greater plus $4. Traded players will have the same value as they would have had without being traded. If a tie occurs at the end of the season for either divisions or wildcards, the tie breaker will be head to head record between the tied teams. (The system does not allow a set up for this – but I suspect it is the default). If the system does not work this way – I will override the system at the end of the season. If teams are tied head to head, then the team with the most wins for the season will win. If the teams are still tied, then the team with the most offensive points won for the season will win the tie breaker. There will be 6 playoff teams. Playoffs will be week #22,23,24 – we will not play the last week of the major league season. The two division winners will be the #1 and #2 seeds for the playoffs and will receive a first round BYE week. Then next four best teams by record, will be the wildcards, and will be seeded based on their record. There will be reseeding - the highest seed will always play the lowest seed in the playoffs. If there is a tie in the play-off’s the higher seed will win the game. League fees for 2017 will be $170. League fees are due by 3/15/2018. Payoff’s for 2018 (assuming 12 teams) will be: Top division winner $240 2nd division winner $170 Top wild card $125 2nd Wildcard $90 3rd and 4th wildcards $0 League Champion $500 League runner up $275 3rd Place $175 Records – will only be paid out if the existing Record from 2017 is beaten. If the record is not beaten in 2018, the money will carry over to 2019. If more than one team beats or ties a record, the team that holds the record at the end of the season will get the money, the other team will not receive any money. Payouts for 2018 – if records at beaten or tied. i) Most runs one week $15 ii) Most homeruns one week $15 iii) Most RBI’s one week $15 iv) Most stolen bases one week $15 v) Most extra base hits one week $15 vi) Highest OBP one week (min 175 AB) $15 vii) Most runs regular season $15 viii) Most homeruns regular season $15 ix) Most RBIs regular season $15 x) Most stolen bases regular season $15 xi) Most extra base hits regular season $15 xii) Highest OBP regular season $15 xiii) Most wins one week $15 xiv) Most Strikeouts one week $15 xv) Most saves one week $15 xvi) Most quality starts one week $15 xvii) Lowest ERA one week (min 40 innings) $15 xviii) Lowest WHIP one week (min 40 innings) $15 ixx) Most wins regular season $15 xx) Most strikeouts regular season $15 xxi) Most saves regular season $15 xxii) Most quality starts regular season $15 xxiii) Lowest ERA regular season $15 xxiv) Lowest Whip regular season $15 xxv) Best regular season record $15 xxvi) Most consecutive division titles (min 2) $30 xxvii) Most consecutive Playoff appearances (when we have a sole record set) $30 xxviii) Back to back champion $100 (back pool starts at $300) – Jeff Motz Eligible in 2018 weekly records can not be established or broken during week #1 – which will be an extended week this season, and the extended week around the All Star Break (with the exception of OBP, ERA and WHIP) weekly records can be established or broken in the playoffs regular season records are established in weeks 1-21 and exclude the playoffs new records are paid out for tied records and new records at the end of the season. Records are recorded at the end of the season, for example if a runs record is set in 2017 at 60 for one week and in 2018 someone beats that record with 61 in week 3 of the season and then someone gets 62 later in the season. 62 would be the new record and would be paid out, the person that got 61 would get nothing. League payoffs will be made within 3 days after the end of the playoffs. 10) Commissioner fee $10 for miscellaneous admin costs. Regarding carryover money – If the league dissolves all carry over money will be kept by the by the commissioner for the risk taken guaranteeing the record pools for the first year, and for his years of service as commissioner. 11) League Schedule – 12 teams each team will play a 21 week season – this will include 10 games within their division (will play everyone twice) and 11 games outside the division will play everyone twice with the exception of one team. As teams confirm they are entering the league they will be randomly assigned a team number. Teams 1-6 will be in the Eastern division, Teams 7-12 will be in the Western Division. Each year team numbers will be randomly selected resulting in owners changing team number and divisions from year to year. Here is the league schedule Week 1: 1-6 2-5 3-4 7-12 8-11 9-10 Week 2: 1-8 2-9 3-10 4-11 5-12 6-7 Week 3: 1-5 2-4 3-6 7-11 8-10 9-12 Week 4: 1-9 2-10 3-11 4-12 5-7 6-8 Week 5: 1-4 2-3 5-6 7-10 8-9 11-12 Week 6: 1-3 2-6 4-5 7-9 8-12 10-11 Week 7: 1-10 2-11 3-12 4-7 5-8 6-9 Week 8: 1-2 3-5 4-6 7-8 9-11 10-12 Week 9: 1-11 2-12 3-7 4-8 5-9 6-10 Week 10: 1-12 2-7 3-8 4-9 5-10 6-11 Week 11: 1-7 2-8 3-9 4-10 5-11 6-12 Week 12: 1-10 2-11 3-12 4-7 5-8 6-9 Week 13: 1-6 2-5 3-4 7-12 8-11 9-10 Week 14: 1-5 2-4 3-6 7-11 8-10 9-12 Week 15: 1-9 2-10 3-11 4-12 5-7 6-8 Week 16: 1-11 2-12 3-7 4-8 5-9 6-10 Week 17: 1-8 2-9 3-10 4-11 5-12 6-7 Week 18:1-4 2-3 5-6 7-10 8-9 11-12 Week 19: 1-12 2-7 3-8 4-9 5-10 6-11 Week 20: 1-3 2-6 4-5 7-9 8-12 10-11 Week 21: 1-2 3-5 4-6 7-8 9-11 10-12 Week 22-24 – playoffs 12) We will have a $260 auction draft.
