    I'd like to congratulate PepperNY and the Tampa Bay Rays for winning the 2018 World Series.

    The offseason starts now. We are on a strict 24 hour deadline. Exports are due by 8PM EST nightly.

    Those of you who were having financial troubles need to make sure you are paying attention as we progress through everything. This will be the only tag everyone gets, it is your responsibility to follow along in this thread and ask questions here if need be.

    You will see the schedule below. Instructions will be given during each step as to what you need to do. But when in doubt check 1) Managers Home 2) In Game Email

    2018/2019 Off-Season Schedule

    DO NOT MAKE FREE AGENT OFFERS UNTIL AFTER SIM #1

    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.

    2/19 #1: , import and sim to Rule 5 draft 12/1 Arby hearings complete . Options processed and Awards announced.- Free agents also file.- OSA Rescout

    2/20 #2: import and DO NOTHING. Rule 5 availables ABSOLUTELY FINALIZED - NO EXCEPTIONS.

    2/21 #3: NO TEAM IMPORTS PROCESSED. Rule 5 draft lists due at 8pm EST and draft will be input. PM Draft lists to me. Sim one day. You MUST have room on your 40 man roster to draft anyone and cash on hand ($50K) for each player.

    2/22 #4: sim to 12/16/13

    2/23 #5: sim to 1/1/14. History updates

    2/24 #6: sim to 1/16/14.

    2/25 #7: sim until Pre-Season begins (early Feb).- Change your development budgets!!!- Check Contracts (Team Options) from previous year.

    2/26 #8: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-

    2/27 #9: 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.
    #10: Opening Day Sim

    • Free agents will file after advance.
    • Deadline to export is tomorrow at 8PM EST, we will then advance to sim 2

    Youre really close, but last year you made $175 million... right now your expenses are only $160 million. To be safe you can trim your development budget on 2/1/19 or decline arbitration on some guys now.

    If you goto yoru organization overview in game (where it has all of your minor league teams and players) you will see guys with a # next to them. These are elligible for the rule 5 draft. To protect them, they need to be dragged to your 40 man roster. They then cannot be drafted.

    Yeah guys are elligible for Rule 5 after spending a certain amount of time in your organization and not ever being put on a 40 man roster. It prevents teams from stockpiling talent when other teams are willing to play them in the majors. There have been some really good rule 5 draftees IRL (and in OOTP)- Jose Bautista, Josh Hamilton, Johan Santana are a couple of the big names.

    Once drafted they have to remain on your 25 man roster the entire season, or given back to their original team (by releasing them in game)

    What will happen tonight is that I will advance to 12/1. You will then be able to see the draft board in game of who is elligible. You will have 24 hours to protect guys and then re-export. Then, I will import everyones protections and reupload the file and the draft board is then finalized.

    Guys then PM me lists of anyone they want, and then the draft takes place.

    I've got a couple guys on DL, that I can't put back (game wouldnt let me) on my 40 man roster. Are they safe from rule 5 draft?
