    The Offseason is finally here. Congrats to the 2019 World Champion Baltimore Orioles*

    The offseason will be a whirlwind of 24 hour advances with a strict 8PM EST deadline for each phase. Shaun Mason and ryty32 you need to get your finances figured out and make a profit for 2020. RynoAid I need an export from you by tomorrow please or I have no choice but to find a new GM for the Red Sox.

    This will be the only tag you will get for the remainder of the offseason, so it is your responsibility to follow along with what is happening. Some of you are new to this process, so please ask questions.

    When in doubt check 1) Your manager's home page 2) In game email.

    Below is the offseason schedule, but at each step I will post what needs to happen during that step.

    2019/2020 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.

    4/3 #1: , import and sim to Rule 5 draft 12/1 Arby hearings complete . Options processed and Awards announced.- Free agents also file.- OSA Rescout

    4/4 #2: import and DO NOTHING. Rule 5 availables ABSOLUTELY FINALIZED - NO EXCEPTIONS.

    4/5 #3: NO TEAM IMPORTS PROCESSED. Rule 5 draft lists due at 8pm EST and draft will be input. PM Draft lists to me. You MUST have room on your 40 man roster to draft anyone and cash on hand ($50K) for each player.-

    4/6 #4 Sim to 12/16/13

    4/7 #5: sim to 1/1/14. History updates

    4/8 #6: sim to 1/16/14.

    4/9 #7: sim until Pre-Season begins (early Feb).- Change your development budgets!!!- Check Contracts (Team Options) from previous year.

    4/10 #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-

    4/11 #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 Then upload file.

    4/12 #10: Opening Day Sim

    I believe you ask this every year. No :(

    Steps 1-3, 7-10 are crucial. And really... we want to give the opportunity to counter offer free agents. Any faster and highest first bid wins.

    Being a GM in the Dugout is not a part time gig man. ;)

    Please post each time in vacation thread. That's where these things belong.

    If I void the final year of Derek Holland's contract will I only pay $375K or the $1.5 mil due in 2020?

    In the arbitration stage of free agency - if a player is eligible for arbitration and you rather offer an extension, do I need to withdraw my arbitration offer if a contract extension has been offered, or just leave it there and let the extension offer super-cede the arbitration?

    I don't want to have the player end up accepting arbitration and declining my extension while on the other hand feeling burned by me withdrawing my arbitration offer and thus declining the extension- ya dig? o_O :confused: :banghead:

    Don't withdraw or you take the risk of the player declining the extension then becoming a FA. Knowing this game withdrawing would somehow mess up the extension as well.

    I may be in trouble for this sim. I lost power at my house last night at about 10:00 and didn't get it back until this morning. I have a soccer game immediately after work and will not be able to get back home before the sim.

    Am I going to miss anything important?
