    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: Friday: 7/6 import and sim one day to set new budgets, open arbitration and see options
    #2: Saturday 7/7 , import and sim to day after Arby hearings. Options processed and Awards announced.- ENTER AWARD WINNERS PRESIM!!
    #3: Saturday 7/7 import and sim to Rule 5 draft on 12/1/13. Contract Buyouts due. Free agents also file.- OSA Rescout
    #4: Sunday 7/8. Rule V Draft presim import and DO NOTHING. Rule 5 availables ABSOLUTELY FINALIZED - NO EXCEPTIONS.
    #5: Monday7/9, NO TEAM IMPORTS PROCESSED. Rule 5 draft lists due at 8pm EST and draft will be input. Sim one day.
    #6: Tuesday 7/10 , free agency begins - sim to 12/16/13
    #7:wed 7/11, free agency - sim to 1/1/14. History updates
    #8: thur 7/12, free agency - sim to 1/16/14.

    #10: sat 7/14, end of free agency - sim until start of Spring Training. WATCH YOUR DFA!!!
    #11: sun7/15, turn off suspensions and sim entire Spring Training. Lower DFA to 22 days and waivers to 12 days at the end of the sim, turn back on suspsensions. Then upload file.

    Nats exported

    Then
    When it says extensions are ok, I went to some possible FAs and offered them extensions. That is ok right? If it isn't I didn't export this one yet

    If the player is on your team and has a chance to hit free agency then yes you can offer extensions.

    Hall of Fame Welcomes Thomas: "From the first time I saw him play, I knew he had the potential to be one of the best," Frank Thomas's first manager said, "and the more I saw him play, the more certain I was that he would reach that potential."

    This manager was just one of the people there at Thomas's enshrinement in the Major League Hall of Fame. It was a celebration of the career of one of the shining stars of his generation. His teammates loved him and opposing fans loved to hate him, but respect followed him everywhere, as evidenced by the large crowd at the ceremony. Not only were teammates there, but opposing players and managers as well, along with a large throng of fans.

    The man of the moment was overcome with emotion when he finally took his turn at the podium to speak. "This is one of the greatest moments of my life and to share it with all of you here is... simply amazing. I would just like to thank my family and all my teammates for their support during my journey here. Individual honor was never my goal, winning was, but this is more than I could have ever dreamed."

    Thomas retired at the age of 45 with a .301 career batting average. He mainly played designated hitter, participated in 2322 games, hit 521 home runs and batted in 1704 runs.

    If a guy does not have a contract with anyone, then you must wait to sign them. If theres a guy close to FA who's still technically a Nat, then sign away.

    Each of you should have gotten an email similar to this. The highlighted line is important when planning for your draft next year ryalaman :p

    Personal Message from the Owner: New Budget: Jesse,

    I have just decided on your budget for the upcoming season.
    You will have $106,000,000 available for the total team expenses. I have also set the suggested draft budget for the first-year player draft to $7,500,000. You may spend more than that in the draft, but the additional costs will be deducted from your money you have available for signing free agents or contract extensions.

    You have time until the end of the pre-season to set your scouting and player development budget. Please go to the front office area of your team.

    Good Luck!
    Robert Nutting

    I wish I hadn't deleted my email from last year. I wonder what it couldve said that posessed Angelos to turn down like 1.5M in bonus money when I was 10-15M below budget.

    Looking forward to hearing the bitching and moaning on how hard it is to evaluate players now with the ratings changes. Should I change fielding ratings to 20-80 as well? Leave at 1-10? Change to 1-100?

    My vote for fielding ratings would be to leave 1-10 or go to 20-80 if we want to be consistent. I would not mess with 1-100 scale.
