Ultimate Dynasty League

Recommended Posts

Hey,
 
Just a quick little bit about myself; Im from Long Island, 41 years old. Ive enjoyed a dynasty league i created since 2003. I now am looking to start a "big boy" version of that game...
Do you have any interest in starting up a league from scratch?
 
Currently my big overall questions are:
1. How to advertise something like this?
2. How to handle the $? (and have everyone feel secure about it)
 
General ideas:
1. I would love to have 30 teams.
2. Probably set up a soft cap with a luxury tax. Maybe Dollars 1 through 150 no tax. $151 through $250 = 10%, $251 through 300 = %20...
3. Minor League system of the first 10 players = $1 each, 11-20 = $2 each, 21-30 = $3 ...
4. Owners could only spend what money they have already given (via paypal im guessing). No IOUs.
5. Prizes given to overall winner, League Winners, Division winners, Wild Cards.
6. A team must have a minimum amount of ABs and IP in a season.
7. Set up a trade council that will have the right to veto trades.
8. Free Agent players must have two years paid into the league at any time. So, a three year contract at $15 per year means that the owner would have to of put in $30 total. Basically trying to figure out a system to stop owners from just playing hard for one season without looking to the future, ie one and done. If they need to have some sort of skin in the game for the future they wont be as quick to split. Remember, this is built to be a long term dynasty league.
 
Initial start up:
1. Divide the initial draft two ways
a, Free Agents via auction style
b. Arbitration and Minor League players via draft (snake style)
 
 
 
These are some rules my other league uses that would also probably work for this league:
Rookie eligibility

a. The RBL will utilize Performance Thresholds for determining “rookie” or “1st year” status for all players. Those thresholds are:
-Any batter with fewer than 150 career MLB at bats will retain 1st year status
-Any Pitcher with fewer than 50 career MLB innings pitched will retain 1st year status

b. Once a player has passed “1st year” status, they will continue to advance regardless of their MLB at bats or innings pitched at the rate of one year per MLB season (season spent in minors, playing abroad or missed due to injury continue to count against the arbitration clock after rookie status has passed)
_____________________________________________________________
 
Contracts and arbitration
c. Non-Guaranteed contracts for 1st - 3rd year players, regardless of statistics are as follows:
First year (1st) $1
Second year (2nd) $2
Third year (3rd) $3

4th - 6th year player salaries are based on the previous years statistics as follows:
Fourth year (4th) = %60 of calculated cost up to $7.0 or a minimum of $1.0
Fifth year (5th) = %80 of calculated cost up to $10.0 or a minimum of $1.0
Sixth year (6th) = %100 of calculated cost up to $15.0 or a minimum of $1.0

e. 4th - 6th year salary calculator:

20-29 HR = $1.0 million
30-39 HR = $2.0 million
40-49 HR = $3.0 million
50+ HR = $4.0 million

90-99 RBI = $1.0 million
100-109 RBI = $2.0 million
110-119 RBI = $3.0 million
120+ RBI = $4.0 million

90-99 R = $1.0 million
100-109 R = $2.0 million
110-119 R = $3.0 million
120+ R = $4.0 million

20-29 SB = $1.0 million
30-39 SB = $2.0 million
40-49 SB = $3.0 million
50+ SB = $4.0 million

.280-.289 Avg = $1.0 million
.290-.299 Avg = $2.0 million
.300-.309 Avg = $3.0 million
.310 Avg + = $4.0 million

16-17 Wins = $1.0 million
18-19 Wins = $2.0 million
20-21 Wins = $3.0 million
22+ Wins = $4.0 million

170-179 K = $1.0 million
180-189 K = $2.0 million
190-199 K = $3.0 million
200+ K = $4.0 million

10-19 SV = $1.0 million
20-29 SV = $2.0 million
30-39 SV = $3.0 million
40-49 SV = $4.0 million
50+ SV = $5.0 million

Starting Pitching ERA/WHIP scale (any P with 5 or more starts in a season)
3.00-3.39 ERA = $1.0 million
2.50-2.99 ERA = $2.0 million
2.00-2.49 ERA = $3.0 million
1.99 – ERA = $4.0 million

1.20-1.29 WHIP = $1.0 million
1.10-1.19 WHIP = $2.0 million
1.00-1.09 WHIP = $3.0 million
0.99- WHIP = $4.0 million

Relief Pitching ERA/WHIP scale (any P with fewer than 5 starts in a season)
3.00-3.39 ERA = $0.6 million
2.50-2.99 ERA = $1.3 million
2.00-2.49 ERA = $1.6 million
1.99- ERA = $2.0 million

1.20-1.29 WHIP = $0.6 million
1.10-1.19 WHIP = $1.3 million
1.00-1.09 WHIP = $1.6 million
0.99- WHIP = $2.0 million

f. Contracts awarded through free agency are considered “Guaranteed” for the length of the contract and can not be dropped at any time. (see section VII for rules governing Free Agents)

g. Guaranteed contracts for players who retire can be dropped upon approval of TTC. The procedure for this is for the owner of the player to post the players name and current contract in the “trades / retirements” thread along with two links to sources reporting the retirement. Approval of the drop must be given by 3 members of TTC BEFORE the owner is allowed to drop the player and adjust his cap.

Different enough that I would probably need to type out new rules,  Something to figure out how to award the amount of years to a player and such...
