The draft will apply to the 2008 season only. The current draft time is March 1st at 9:30 AM. This is subject to change if not enough owners are registered by then or too many owners cannot make the draft. If that happens then this will begin as a midseason league. Draft order will be randomly determined by myself approximately 2 days before the draft. The draft is serpentine.
Minor League Draft:
- Draft order is determined by previous year performance. Teams that make the championship playoffs will have their spots determined by their performance in the playoffs. All other spots are based on regular season standings (last place gets first pick etc.) For the original draft the order will be opposite of the order for the general draft.
- The draft will begin the day after rosters are set.
- Each owner will have 24 hours to make their pick before they are skipped, but picking before that time is preferred. Skipped owners can make their pick whenever they want.
- To be eligible for the draft a player must not be in the Yahoo! Database. They can be minor league players or foreign players. Players that have been drafted but attended college are eligible but college players/high school players who have not been drafted are not eligible for the draft.
- Owners receive as many minor league picks as they have empty roster spots.
Minor League Roster:
- Each team has a maximum of 5 minor league players that can be brought up to the major league team when added to the Yahoo! Database. When a player is added an owner may choose not to bring up their player and keep them in the minor leagues. However, once said player is added, he may not be moved back down.
- Minor league players may be traded as long as both teams retain the maximum 5 man roster.
- Do not pick up another team’s minor league players. I will immediately drop them and you will lose your waiver if you used it and the player you dropped. Always check before adding a rookie.
- Before every season, owners may cut players in order to get picks in the minor league draft.
Basic stuff. 25 players, unlimited trading, adds, drops.
- Trading is encouraged by everybody. It is a good way to improve your team.
- The trade deadline is August 10. Trades are also allowed during the entire offseason.
- Owners may trade players, minor league players, minor league draft picks and waivers. Owners may not trade future draft picks or waivers. Only current season.
- Owners must post in the message board when a trade is completed and both owners must confirm the trade.
- There is a two day trade reject time.
- Committe for Trade Evaluation
- All accepted trades immediately enter the Trade Protest Period
- Trade Protest Period: Lasting 24 hours, this period allows other owners to protest the trade publicly on the message board. Upon two posted protests, with logical reasoning, the trade shall enter the Trade Review Period. If two protests are not made within 24 hours, the trade is completed.
- In the event that an owner is decided by committee vote to be unnecessarily protesting trades out of malice or for strategic gain, he will be assigned any punishment deemed necessary by the committee. Should the offending owner(s) be part of the committee, the vote shall consist of the remaining uninvolved owners, with the Commissioner carrying the tiebreaking vote.
- Trade Review Period: The elected committee convenes to determine whether the trade is in the best interests of the league. Trades that are deemed exceedingly one-sided or collusive shall be denied. Reviews shall be completed by 11:59 PM PST of the day following the second protest of a trade, otherwise, the trade is completed.
- It shall also be stressed that the committee’s purpose is to deny as few trades as necessary. We all find trading to be a fun and strategic part of fantasy baseball. However, we also want this league to succeed in the long run, and an owner that runs a team into the ground and leaves is creating a situation that is very difficult to come back from. Members of the CFTE agree to never vote to deny a trade for strategic purposes.
- Current Committee Members: TheZenador, TheBiz, DocMilo
- Accidentally dropping players or accepting trades will be reversed as long as owner posts their mistake immediately following the mistake.
- Please stay active. Minimum of weekly activity and obviously daily activity will make your team much better. Owners who only check in a couple times in a season will be replaced. If you will be gone for an extended period of time just let me know beforehand and there will be no problem.
- Mariner Central will be the offseason home.
