    The Offseason has begun. We will be advancing EVERY day until opening day. Below are general rules and a timeline.

    Offseason will include: Awards Voting, Rule 5 draft, Free Agency, Realignment (Houston to the AL West) and the entire spring training.

    I have updated the master schedule, but here is the timeline. If you do not understand Rule 5 draft, or expanded spring training rosters, arbitration, or any of the other such nonsense, now is the time to ask.

    2012/2013 Off-Season Schedule​


    DO NOT MAKE FREE AGENT OFFERS UNTIL AFTER SIM #5. Extensions are fine, but if a free agent is signed before 12/1 in-game, the player may be released and the team will suffer whatever financial hit comes along with it.

    You are responsible for your roster and DFA. If you sign a guy and he times out, he gets dropped. OOTP now allows us to set the DFA time to 50 days so no excuses.
    You are responsible for making sure Rule 5 eligible players are protected. If somebody gets drafted "on accident" because he wasn't on the 40 man roster, too damn bad.

    #1: Monday: 5/21 import and sim one day to set new budgets, open arbitration and see options

    #2: Tue: 5/22 , import and sim to day after Arby hearings. Options processed and Awards announced.

    #3: Wed: 5/23 import and sim to Rule 5 draft on 12/1/12. Contract Buyouts due. Free agents also file.

    #4: Thur 5/24. import and DO NOTHING. Rule 5 availables ABSOLUTELY FINALIZED - NO EXCEPTIONS.

    #5: Fri 5/25, NO TEAM IMPORTS PROCESSED. Rule 5 draft lists due at 8pm EST and draft will be input. Sim one day.

    #6: Sat 5/26 , free agency begins - sim to 12/16//12

    #7: Sun 5/27 , free agency - sim to 1/1/13. History updates

    #8: Mon 5/28, free agency - sim to 1/16/13.

    #9: Tue 5/29, free agency - sim until Pre-Season begins (early Feb).- Move Houston to AL, turn off diagnosis pending, recalculate schedule, start season on April 1st

    #10: Wed 5/30, end of free agency - sim until start of Spring Training. WATCH YOUR DFA!!!

    #11: Thur 6/31, turn off suspensions and sim entire Spring Training.

    #12: Fri 6/1, sim to 1 day after the completion of ST. Turn on suspensions. Lower DFA to 22 days and waivers to 12 days (or whatever is necessary to cover for the Opening Day sim to 4/11.- Update player photos, OSA rescout.

    #13: Sat (6/2), Opening Day sim. Sim to 4/11/13.

    Day 1 of the Offseason begins Tuesday 5/22 at 8PM EST. Get your exports in. This is an important sim, as you can begin arbitration discussions. This is also when you can release guys you do not want to offer arbitration to for free. Let me know if you have any questions. Exports due by 8PM EST.

    ALSO- there are numerous awards to be voted on. Please participate.

    Basically you have to look in game, PM me your list and then I do the draft that way. There is a draft board for Rule 5 elligibles in game which will be available on that day.

    Right, I forgot. I'll start those now. The AL should be a slam dunk choice.
