    2014/2015 Off-Season Schedule

    DO NOT MAKE FREE AGENT OFFERS UNTIL AFTER SIM #4. 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: Tuesday 8/21 import and sim one day to set new budgets, open arbitration and see options (complete) ENTER AWARD WINNERS PRESIM!! PRESIM- SIM TO Options available. Typically day after World Series (same day budgets released)
    #2: Wed 8/22 , import and sim to Rule 5 draft 12/1 Arby hearings complete . Options processed and Awards announced.- Free agents also file.- OSA Rescout
    #3: Thurs 8/23 import and DO NOTHING. Rule 5 availables ABSOLUTELY FINALIZED - NO EXCEPTIONS.
    #4: Fri 8/24 NO TEAM IMPORTS PROCESSED. Rule 5 draft lists due at 8pm EST and draft will be input. Sim one day.
    #5: Sat 8/25 , free agency begins - sim to 12/16/13
    #6:Sun 8/26, free agency - sim to 1/1/14. History updates
    #7: Mon 8/27 , free agency - sim to 1/16/14.
    #8: Tues 8/28 free agency - sim until Pre-Season begins (early Feb).- Change your development budgets!!!
    #9: Wed 8/29 , end of free agency - sim until start of Spring Training. WATCH YOUR DFA!!!- PRESIM Make sure schedule starts on 4/1 no matter what day of week. Make any changes to the settings!- CONFIRM ALL STAR GAME!!! REGNERATE SCHEDULE
    #10: Thurs 8/30, 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.
    #12: Friday 8/31, Create Full File Presim- Regenerate Photos, OSA Rescout Opening Day sim. Sim to 4/11/14 (10 days). Switch to compressed after sim.

    We are heading into our 4th offseason! Congrats to the Atlanta Braves for winning the World Series in 7 games over the Detroit Tigers. Also, congrats to Timpegoose and Dylema for winning perspective Manager of the Year Awards (sorry Ryal the game hates you).

    Also, we have a new owner in Tampa as well as a hopeful new owner in Oakland in @diddy82 (please PM me if you are ready to rock)

    Please read the offseason schedule. If you have any questions let the commisioner team know. We will advance EVERY DAY, until the season starts, so please pay attention. In addition, NO FREE AGENT OFFERS ARE ALLOWED UNTIL SIM 5!!! Do not forget!!

    Finally... You will now have access to your new budgets, any contract buyouts as well as the arbitration tab!!! Do not mess this up or it could cost you $$$. I do not want to hear any bitching! I will be reviewing your P&L's and if ended in the red, your spending is frozen!! I will let you know, but please pay attention.


    Good luck in the offseason and ASK questions if you have ANY!!

    Also.. Do not forget about the rule changes!!

    We will be making some slide modifications to our existing rules. These will take affect during the 2014 offseason.

    Team Options

    In order to decline a team option year of a contract, teams will be required to pay a buyout of 25% of the option year or $500,000, whichever is more. You must put this in the contract when offering it to a player

    Contract Incentives

    • For all players: The dollar amount offered for a contract incentive or bonus will be no more than 50% of the highest valued non-option year of the contract, not to exceed $2.5 million
    • For hitters: The Plate Appearance contract incentive may be set no higher than 625 PAs
    • For pitchers: The Innings Pitched contract incentive may be set no higher than 215 IP
    • Minimum pitcher stamina to be offered incentive or bonus: four
    • If you are signing a guy mid-season, offering him playing time bonuses that are impossible for him to fill will be considered a violation of our bonus rules
    Post Deadline Trading
    Post Trade Deadline (7/31) trading will now be disabled.

    You each ended in the red this year. Do not offer arbitration, extensions or free agents without consulting with the commissioner team first. We will be monitioring your transaction logs

    I'm good. Arbitration will be offered in my file. As part of the plan all along...Aramis Ramirez is in an option year and his final year will be voided.

    If I had a player with a player option decline his contract for 2015, can I attempt to sign him before he hits FA?

    Ok guys.. Once again I condensed 2 steps. Hoping I didnt mess anything up. Free agency is now able to be offered after sim 4, not 5.

    This sim is the LAST sim to protect guys for the Rule 5 draft.

    KnightNoles You have until spring training starts to get your payroll down to acceptable levels or I will start cutting guys. Starting with the highest salary on your roster.

    How exactly does one "protect" a player from the Rule 5?

    If a player was signed at age 19 or older, he must be on the 40 man roster after 4 seasons to be protected from the Rule 5 draft. If he was signed at 18 or younger, he gets 5 seasons. If a player has not accrued the prerequisite minor league service time then he doesn't need to be on the 40 man to be protected.
