    Offseason is upon us. Please pay attention, blah, blah, blah


    Exports are excused during the offseason.

    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.
    2023/2024 Offseason 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.


    #1: Presim- import and Input award winnerssim to Rule 5 draft 12/1 Arby hearings complete . Options processed and Awards announced.- Free agents also file. When the file is up, you may protect your Rule 5 players. Free Agency opens.

    #2: import and DO NOTHING. Rule 5 availables ABSOLUTELY FINALIZED - NO EXCEPTIONS. Create Rule 5 draft list in game.You MUST have room on your 40 man roster to draft anyone and cash on hand ($50K) for each player.

    #3: Import. Complete Rule 5 draft in game. Sim to 12/16

    #4 Sim to 1/1

    #5: sim to 1/16. History updates

    #6: sim until Pre-Season begins (early Feb).- Change your development budgets!!!- Edit Schedule. Add 2 additional NBL Playoff Teams.

    #7:end of free agency - sim until start of Spring Training. WATCH YOUR DFA!!!- PRESIM Make sure schedule starts on 4/1 . Make any changes to the settings!- CONFIRM ALL STAR GAME!!! REGNERATE SCHEDULE-

    #8: 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.

    #9: Opening Day Sim

    Reminders:

    Do Not forget about contract rules in the league description. Team, Player and Vesting options are BANNED!! Failure to follow these rules will result in the player in question being released and ALL financial damages applied to your team.

    kdpnutter is on the hot seat

    Make sure not to add two more nippon teams to playoff. I know it was a copy/paste, hence why I'm throwing it out as a reminder and so people don't think its expanding to 3 teams.

    Are Super 2 rules for Japan different than the USA? I know USA it's between 2 and 3 years pro, but I've got a guy who has only been pro for 2 seasons, let alone on the ML roster, and he's up for arbitration.

    Hey y'all where can I locate this elusive "respond" screen for a player that needs an answer regarding a existing "team option" in his contract. Note: this option was offered years ago, prior to the rule change. Thanks

    Ugh. This happened last season as well. I don't think it's a version issue. The only commonality is that I missed multiple sims/uploads before this one (arbitration).

    I have no clue, you obviously had the right date if you saw the arbitration screen.
