    The Dugout

    Congrats to the Chicago White Sox 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.

    2025/2026 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!!

    Is it possible for you to cut the guys the CPU signs in Nippon (since there's only a couple CPU teams) before uploading the file? Or does it have to wait til tomorrow's advance?

    This group of Japanese free agents is by far the worst we've had since starting NBL

    SP Ken Jones will not be available for Rule V draft.

    He only shows up because of the trade processed.

    So, I have no idea why Saldina is listed as rule 5 eligible (he didn't show up as eligible on my screen when I was protecting players and he shouldn't be eligible anyway with only 3 years of pro time since he should have 5 before he is), but he's not gonna be in the pool.

    Ya, you're right. Looks like the game has some issues with INTL FA and the rule V from what I searched on the OOTP forums.

    Saldina should not be elgible

    Are you able to fix this on your end by taking them out of the pool or should I remove them and send out a new export when I get home?
