    The Dugout

    Congrats to the Chicago White Sox on sweeping the Dodgers and continuing the AL dominance. 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.

    2028/2029 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: 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. Sim to 12/16.

    #3: Sim to 1/1.

    #4: Sim to 1/16. History updates.

    #5: Sim until Pre-Season begins (early Feb). Edit Schedule.

    #6: 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.

    #7: 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.

    #8: Opening Day Sim.



    Reminders

    Teams that lost money last season:


    Teams in danger of the 5 year rule:
    • Kansas City Royals - Bondzai - Needs a 81-81, or better, record in 2029.




    I will be holding the draft lottery this Saturday after the sim. It will be broadcast live for all those interested.


    Don't forget development budgets may now be updated at any time during the offseason.

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

    Next advance is Friday at 8PM EST.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Sim 1: Long story short, what needs to be done by tomorrow - Process your arbitration eligible players and any legacy players that still have options in their contracts. AFTER this sim awards will be announced and teams will be able to start offering FA contracts.


    Also, welcome ZCar352 to the NBL. He will be taking over the Yokohama BayStars. If you want a different team Roggie, let me know.

    Did you not have anyone send you the accounts_gm file like I recommended trying? That should fix it.

    Clinkers has to be a lock for N.L. Rookie of the Year. Which basically means his future is f.ed.
