    The Dugout

    Congrats to the Chicago White Sox on their second consecutive 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.

    2026/2027 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!!

    My game locked up for a minute or two today but it eventually recovered. Its been like that for a while now. It didnt load today, it said it was an old date.

    Was there a reason the exports for non-playoff teams were not imported during the playoffs? Lost a bunch of progress I made with the farm system, extensions, etc.

    Just wish I had known.

    Try and reinstall the file.

    Every time I did a sim I grabbed everyone's export. We've been having some problems with the Dodgers team file lately so it may have caused someone to lock up and not grab yours for whatever reason.

    I've made some questionable contract extensions so the off-season is off to a great start!

    I know it says Development budget can be changed but I cannot change it, says I have to wait until the Pre-Season.
