In the case any commissioner senses collusion, the commissioners can open any trade up for league voting. If collusion is suspected, all owners involved in the said trade will be banned from the league. Dynasty-style leagues mirror real-life MLB trades and may seem questionable to someone who does not understand MiLB and/or prospects. If any trade is approved that you believe should have been opened up for review...please contact the commissioners and express your concerns. Annual Rookie/International Player Draft FYPD There will be a 5-round straight (non-snake style) draft (FYPD) at the of the season before the new season begins. This draft will include players selected in the most recent MLB Amateur draft and international players who have posted. Any minor league/international player must have their rights owned and/or a contract with an MLB team in order to be rostered. Rule 5 Draft At the end of each season- teams will have to protect any player eligible for Rule 5 draft must be protected on your major league roster, or will become eligible in the annual rookie/international/rule 5 draft. Teams can have a max of 3 players taken from their roster during Rule 5 draft. There will be compensation for teams who have a rule 5 players taken from their team. The compensation will consist of: 1 player taken = FYPD 4, 2 players taken = FYPD 3 & 4, and 3 players taken = FYPD 2, 3, & 4. These picks will serve as compensation picks and be added to the end of the appropriate round. Teams who select a player via rule 5 draft must keep player on their active roster for the entire year. Failing to keep the player on their active roster will result in original team getting player back. If a rule 5 player is returned to original team- they will not receive the draft pick compensation. *Updated 10/16/2018 The Rule 5 draft definition is: Players who were signed when they were 19 or older and have played in professional baseball for four years are eligible, as are players who were signed at 18 or younger and have played for five years. Draft picks for the most recent draft may be traded. This draft is optional. INITIAL DRAFT The initial draft will be broken into two separate drafts: Major league draft and minor league draft. Both drafts will be snake-style. The draft order will be randomized. The randomized draft order will be posted prior to both drafts and will decided randomly at at fantrax . Once draft order is finalized- you may trade draft spots with other owners. You may not trade initial draft picks, but are allowed to swap draft positions with another GM. The draft order will be set for the major league draft- and the minor league draft order will be the inverse order of the major league draft. The major league draft will be held first. This will be a 30 round snake style draft. Players available in the minor league draft can be identified as players who have not exceeded their “rookie” status. A player shall be considered a rookie unless, during a previous season or seasons, he has (a) exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues; or (b) accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the period of 25-player limit (excluding time in the military service and time on the disabled list)." https://www.baseball-reference.com is a great website to easily check any players rookie status. If you search a player in question on their website, you will find a “Rookie Status” category in which they will reveal if they have exceeded rookie limits. Draft Penalties If you exceed your 12-hour window to make a selection, the team drafting after you may make their selection and the draft may continue to go on without your pick. You will, however, be allowed to make your pick at any time. If you and another team make both of your picks at the same time and it is the same player, the team who input the pick on the message boards first will be awarded said player. “First” may be defined by time, OR if time is the same, whichever team shows as the older post. Drafting a player in the minor league draft who has exceeded their rookie status will result in same penalty as exceeding your 12-hour window. Trading initial draft picks is allowed. You may completely swap draft positions OR straight up trade draft picks. You MUST receive back the same amount of draft picks that you are trading away.

The league will be hosted on fantrax League Fees will be paid and held through LeagueSafe League Format is weekly H2H Points League with a three-round playoff. Commissioner: James Kelly. Contact - Jrkelly618@gmail.com 2. OWNERS The league will have 14 owners, each managing their own team. Co-owners will be allowed. Each Team will have to be named after an actual Milb League team and add their logo in. Each owner is asked to please promptly respond to any e-mails from league members or the Commissioner concerning league matters such as trades, voting, etc. Owners are free to trade at their own risk but any sign of collusion will be dealt with harshly and will lead to expulsion from the league. 3. FIRST YEAR AUCTIONS The initial league draft will be an extended (slow) auction starting in early February and will be held on Couch Managers. Although this is an auction draft, it's important to note, the auction is for DRAFT PURPOSES ONLY! Once the draft is over, players will lose any monetary value. Major League Auction - Each team is allotted $325 for 30 major league players consisting of 25 starters: 14 hitters and 11 pitchers, and 5 bench players of any position. Only players in the major leagues or with major league experience can be nominated in the major league auction. All foreign players and players in the minors are ineligible for this auction and must be drafted in the minor league auction which will be held directly after. Each team can nominate up to 3 players at a time, so there will be a maximum of 42 players on the board at any given time. We can increase the nominations part way through the auction if necessary. Once an owner’s nominated player is sold, they may then nominate a new major league player. A player becomes sold once a 12 hour time period has lapsed since the last bid has been made. Couchmanagers is set up for this type of Auction, so you can only have a max amount of bids out based on your budget remaining and your open roster spots. A major league player is designated as any player having more than one hundred thirty (130) plate appearances or fifty (50) innings pitched. For example: Tyler O’neill has 130 Major League plate appearances, so he would not be available in the Major League Auction. He would only be available in the prospect auction. The Minor League Draft will be an auction running alongside/subsequent to the Major League Draft with each team allotted $200 budget on the 20 minor league players in Year 1. You may nominate up to 3 players here as well. Players that are eligible to be drafted in the minor league draft are any player in the minors or majors who are not Major League-eligible yet. To be "True Minor League Roster-eligible," a player, as of the end of the previous season, must have, over his career, accumulated no more than one hundred thirty (130) plate appearances or fifty (50) innings pitched. (Please see Tyler O’neill example above for clarity). 4. ROSTER COMPOSITION Rosters will be comprised of 30 major leaguers and 20 minor leaguers for a total of 50 players. The 30 major league players include 5 bench spots (can be used on any combinations of hitters and pitchers) and 25 starting players; 14 hitters and 11 pitchers. Hitters include a catcher, a first baseman, a second baseman, a third baseman, a shortstop, five outfielders, MI, CI, and two utility men. Pitching staffs can be any combination of 11 starters and relievers. During the season, each team will also have a max of 5 DL spots. However, when determining keepers at the close of a season, the total # of players able to be kept is still 50 (You can possibly end a season with 55 total players if each DL spot is being used) Each hitter, as long as they are under 400 ABs, can be slotted into either a Major League or Minor League position. The same goes for each pitcher under 200 IPs. However, players who are eligible for minor league roster spots can only be activated to a major league roster spot by being "called up" by the owner (this happens by posting on the league's message board). Once a player has been "called up," he can be "sent down" to the minor league roster spot only once (again, by posting the on league's message board) before he is considered a major league player upon his second callup. At this point, he must remain on the active major league roster or be dropped/traded. If a player is promoted to the major league roster, and the owner didn’t follow the proper procedure of posting on the message board, those stats will not count. If a player is dropped/traded, his previous call-ups & demotions will reset. If an owner has a player with greater than 400 AB’s or 200 IP in their minor league roster (as fantrax won’t monitor this), the below sliding scale penalties will come into effect: First offense - Warning Second offense - Loss of $250 in FAAB money. If you don't have $250 left at the time of the infraction, the penalty will carry over to next season. Third offense - Loss of offending player. Essentially, it is up to every owner to monitor their own rosters and make sure that these infractions never occur. Please note that bench spots can also be used for minor leaguers if you would like, so the true total number of minor leaguers that you can have on your roster is 25. The call-up / send-down transactions will be reset after each season. The penalties for offenses will also be reset after each season so each owner starts from scratch. 5. IN-SEASON ROSTER MANAGEMENT Teams will have a FAAB budget of $1,000 to add players during the season. FAAB will run twice a week. Any player is eligible to be added as long as they are listed in fantrax database with the exception of players drafted in the June Amateur Draft and any international players who signed after the start of the season. There is a limit of 7 moves per week. $0 bids are allowed. Trades can be made at any time. FAAB money can not be traded. Draft Picks can only be traded in the offseason prior to the FYPD. The trade deadline will be August 15th of each year. No trades will be allowed between that date and the end of the fantasy season. Trades will then be allowed once the season is over and can continue even after keepers are chosen and during the draft. All offseason trades will need both owners to pay their next season league fee before it can be approved by the Commissioner. All trades will be reviewed and approved by the Commissioner. The Commissioner will approve all trades UNLESS there is evidence of collusion between the parties or if one party evidences the desire to quit. If collusion occurs, both parties involved will be asked to leave the league. In order for a trade to get processed both teams must post the trade terms to the league message board. Other owners are welcome to give their thoughts, but unless there will be no rigid veto process – this is a dynasty league and owners are free to do what they want with their team. In the time period right after the last regularly scheduled FAAB and opening day, FAAB will run daily and players that are injured can be moved to the DL even if not yet placed on the real life DL. 6. OFF-SEASON ROSTER MANAGEMENT In the off season, there will be a combined major league and FYP(First year player) draft to add new players. Teams will receive 5 rounds each. Every year there will be a deadline at least a week before the draft where teams will have to drop their bench or the commissioner will do it for them. You may add prospects or mlb to the 5 player bench to be dropped but they get added to the pool and every team receives 5 rounds to fill those spots whether it be minor leaguers or mlb players you’re drafting. So basically you need to trim your team somehow to 45 before each draft.. Once the draft starts no more players can be dropped, however trades are still allowed. The draft order is based on reverse order of finish from the prior year. Final order is determined by the playoff outcome to determine the last six draft spots (champion gets 14th pick, runner up gets 13th, etc). The first eight spots are determined by final regular season standings. In the event of a tie in the standings, H2H record will be the first tiebreaker (with the losing team receiving the higher pick). If H2H record is even, a coin flip with be used to determine the draft order. 7. FORMAT AND SCORING Two (2) teams face each other in a Head-to-Head matchup each scoring period. Each team earns points based on statistics accumulated by its players during the applicable Weekly Scoring Period. Point values are listed in the table below. For each Head-to-Head style matchup, the team with the greater number of points during a Weekly Scoring Period will earn a Win and the team with the lesser number will earn a Loss. Ties will occur, and will remain as ties. In the event of a tie in the playoffs, the team with the best regular season record will advance. The next tie-breaker will be H2H Record. Batting Category Point Value Pitching Category Point Value Single 1 pt Win 7 pt Double 2 pt Save 7 pt Triple 3 pt Quality Start 3 pt Home Run 4 pt Strikeout 0.5 pt RBI 1 pt Base on Balls -1 pt Run 1 pt Innings Pitched 3 pt Base on Balls 1 pt Hits Allowed -1 pt Stolen Base 2 pt Earned Runs -1 pt Strikeout -0.5 pt Hit Batsman -1 pt Caught Stealing -1 pt Loss -5 pt Hit by Pitch 1 pt Holds 5 points. Weekly lineup changes throughout the course of the season based on the format of our rosters. Lineups must be submitted at least 5 minutes before the first game Monday. If a team does not have the appropriate players activated, then I will try to get ahold of you ASAP to get that situated. No team should be trying to lose. Not setting a full lineup is not permitted. We should be able to put together a solid roster throughout the season. Each time I will give a warning with the same structure. First offense - Warning Second offense - Loss of $250 in FAAB money. If you don't have $250 left at the time of the infraction, the penalty will carry over to next season. Third offense - Loss of 2nd round pick in the next years FYPD. Fourth Offense - Loss of 1st round pick in the next years FYPD Fifth Offense - We really shouldn’t ever come to this. It’s a weekly league. We just ask you to set a lineup once a week for the regular season. So with that said, if it comes to the fifth offense a league poll will go out whether to keep you in the league. If majority chooses to boot the team, that team will be locked once eliminated and sold in the offseason. Side note:If any of the warnings happen where a team loses a draft pick and that same team does not return the following season. The new owner of the team will get the picks back and the order will go back to normal. 8. PLAYOFFS There are no divisions. The teams with the six best records will make the playoffs. The teams with the two best records will receive first round byes. The playoffs will begin in Week 22. Ties in the standings are resolved in this order: Total Points Scored, then Head to Head Record, and then Points Against. Playoff ties will be resolved in this fashion: Most regular season wins, followed by H2H record. The finals will last for two weeks. Non playoff teams will still play to determine the final standings. 9. YEARLY AWARDS & DYNASTY JACKPOT Total Pot - $1750 First Place - $1000 Second Place - $350 Third Place - $100 Best Regular Season Record - $200 (total points as a tiebreaker) Dynasty Jackpot - $100 ($100 will be added to the jackpot until it is won) The dynasty jackpot will be awarded to the first team to win 3 championships (does not need to be sequential). Once a team has won 3 league championships, the jackpot will start again at $100. Any questions or revisions, please contact the Commissioner at jrkelly618@gmail.com Rules subject to change. Thanks!

Contact - Jrkelly618@gmail.com 2. OWNERS The league will have 14 owners, each managing their own team. Co-owners will be allowed. Each Team will have to be named after an actual Milb League team and add their logo in. Each owner is asked to please promptly respond to any e-mails from league members or the Commissioner concerning league matters such as trades, voting, etc. Owners are free to trade at their own risk but any sign of collusion will be dealt with harshly and will lead to expulsion from the league. 3. FIRST YEAR AUCTIONS The initial league draft will be an extended (slow) auction starting in early February and will be held on Couch Managers. Although this is an auction draft, it's important to note, the auction is for DRAFT PURPOSES ONLY! Once the draft is over, players will lose any monetary value. Major League Auction - Each team is allotted $325 for 30 major league players consisting of 25 starters: 14 hitters and 11 pitchers, and 5 bench players of any position. Only players in the major leagues or with major league experience can be nominated in the major league auction. All foreign players and players in the minors are ineligible for this auction and must be drafted in the minor league auction which will be held directly after. Each team can nominate up to 3 players at a time, so there will be a maximum of 42 players on the board at any given time. We can increase the nominations part way through the auction if necessary. Once an owner’s nominated player is sold, they may then nominate a new major league player. A player becomes sold once a 12 hour time period has lapsed since the last bid has been made. Couchmanagers is set up for this type of Auction, so you can only have a max amount of bids out based on your budget remaining and your open roster spots. A major league player is designated as any player having more than one hundred thirty (130) plate appearances or fifty (50) innings pitched. For example: Tyler O’neill has 130 Major League plate appearances, so he would not be available in the Major League Auction. He would only be available in the prospect auction. The Minor League Draft will be an auction running alongside/subsequent to the Major League Draft with each team allotted $200 budget on the 20 minor league players in Year 1. You may nominate up to 3 players here as well. Players that are eligible to be drafted in the minor league draft are any player in the minors or majors who are not Major League-eligible yet. To be "True Minor League Roster-eligible," a player, as of the end of the previous season, must have, over his career, accumulated no more than one hundred thirty (130) plate appearances or fifty (50) innings pitched. (Please see Tyler O’neill example above for clarity). 4. ROSTER COMPOSITION Rosters will be comprised of 30 major leaguers and 20 minor leaguers for a total of 50 players. The 30 major league players include 5 bench spots (can be used on any combinations of hitters and pitchers) and 25 starting players; 14 hitters and 11 pitchers. Hitters include a catcher, a first baseman, a second baseman, a third baseman, a shortstop, five outfielders, MI, CI, and two utility men. Pitching staffs can be any combination of 11 starters and relievers. During the season, each team will also have a max of 5 DL spots. However, when determining keepers at the close of a season, the total # of players able to be kept is still 50 (You can possibly end a season with 55 total players if each DL spot is being used) Each hitter, as long as they are under 400 ABs, can be slotted into either a Major League or Minor League position. The same goes for each pitcher under 200 IPs. However, players who are eligible for minor league roster spots can only be activated to a major league roster spot by being "called up" by the owner (this happens by posting on the league's message board). Once a player has been "called up," he can be "sent down" to the minor league roster spot only once (again, by posting the on league's message board) before he is considered a major league player upon his second callup. At this point, he must remain on the active major league roster or be dropped/traded. If a player is promoted to the major league roster, and the owner didn’t follow the proper procedure of posting on the message board, those stats will not count. If a player is dropped/traded, his previous call-ups & demotions will reset. If an owner has a player with greater than 400 AB’s or 200 IP in their minor league roster (as fantrax won’t monitor this), the below sliding scale penalties will come into effect: First offense - Warning Second offense - Loss of $250 in FAAB money. If you don't have $250 left at the time of the infraction, the penalty will carry over to next season. Third offense - Loss of offending player. Essentially, it is up to every owner to monitor their own rosters and make sure that these infractions never occur. Please note that bench spots can also be used for minor leaguers if you would like, so the true total number of minor leaguers that you can have on your roster is 25. The call-up / send-down transactions will be reset after each season. The penalties for offenses will also be reset after each season so each owner starts from scratch. 5. IN-SEASON ROSTER MANAGEMENT Teams will have a FAAB budget of $1,000 to add players during the season. FAAB will run twice a week. Any player is eligible to be added as long as they are listed in fantrax database with the exception of players drafted in the June Amateur Draft and any international players who signed after the start of the season. There is a limit of 7 moves per week. $0 bids are allowed. Trades can be made at any time. FAAB money can not be traded. Draft Picks can only be traded in the offseason prior to the FYPD. The trade deadline will be August 15th of each year. No trades will be allowed between that date and the end of the fantasy season. Trades will then be allowed once the season is over and can continue even after keepers are chosen and during the draft. All offseason trades will need both owners to pay their next season league fee before it can be approved by the Commissioner. All trades will be reviewed and approved by the Commissioner. The Commissioner will approve all trades UNLESS there is evidence of collusion between the parties or if one party evidences the desire to quit. If collusion occurs, both parties involved will be asked to leave the league. In order for a trade to get processed both teams must post the trade terms to the league message board. Other owners are welcome to give their thoughts, but unless there will be no rigid veto process – this is a dynasty league and owners are free to do what they want with their team.
