    The Dugout

    Congrats to the Baltimore Orioles (and subsequently me) on their World Series victory. That being said, the offseason is now upon us.

    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. Please feel free to ask questions if you're unsure about anything.
    When in doubt check 1) Your manager's home page 2) In game email.

    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 winners, sim 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). Edit Schedule.

    #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:

    Teams that lost money last season:


    Dont forget development budgets may now be changed at any time during the offseason.

    Do Not forget about contract rules in the league description. Team, Player and Vesting options are BANNED!!

    Some of them are from the release of players with bad contracts.

    Waivers are currently set to 12 days and DFA to 22. I'm sure thats not right but it can be fixed before the next advance correct?

    Well sort of... guys put on waivers this sim to work out their rule 5 roster may time out when you sim 15 days and there may be a lot of accidental cuts.

    You need to change it to:

    Waivers- 17 days
    DFA- 32 days

    Player is placed on waivers- sim 15 days in offseason, new file up, guys can make claims, sim another 15 days, players go where they need to go, that leaves 2 days to get them off DFA.

    Not sure if others' have players on the 60 day DL who are rule 5 draft elligible, but my starting 3B Pablo Morales is unable to be protected. He still has time on 60 day DL and I cant put him on active roster.

    If its anything like real life, 60 day DL will be suspended at X date before the rule 5 draft and you will be able to protect him then.
