Hey all -

Stick chugging away at this thing. Still have a lot of backwork to finish up, but I'll try and do things as we go along. Like not every player needs a picbase until you talk to them, etc... until I have the time to make picbases for every player.

The draft will be the first thing we will go through. Followed by free agency/staff hiring. I am still working on the team sheets so you can plan for the draft and the future. Hopefully I can crack some out over this weekend (currently only have 1 done... yikes!).

So in the meantime I have a (what I think is) fun assignment. This is completely optional and is in no way required. It will not have any bearing on your GM success.

You will have the option to edit your home ballpark. You can choose the wall dimensions, the type of playing surface. I will make a thread with much more detail. Stay tuned!

I will begin to post each teams active roster and S5 stats. You will not have any grades until you lock-in for the preseason and receive your team sheet. Although I may leave grades off completely, I haven't fully decided yet. 

You will have to go off the stats to make any changes you see fit.

Each team will be able to have 12 scouting reports. You cannot purchase more. You can send these to me at any time.

Most teams have a complete coaching staff, but some teams will need to hire staff. However, I will allow the opportunity of each team to fire any staff member (if they see fit) for no cost to the team. Keep in mind though, that could have an impact on team morale.

As always, hit me up on Discord or PM me if you have any questions.

Next step is I’ll slowly start rolling out team sheets before coaching hires and free agency. After team sheets I will post a list of available coaches and a list of available free agents. Since Talon is a great innovator, I am thinking of doing the same “hours” approach to free agency.

I will have grades for all the free agent players, but there will never be grades for coaches.

All post draft team sheets have been released!

Next up is sort of a "mini offseason".

In this period you can terminate ANY player contract that you choose and will not have to pay any money towards. Keep in mind though, it can impact morale, the agent relationship, etc.

You can also terminate any coach contract without any money penalty. Once again, this can effect things like morale as well.

Each team will be given $15MM scouting money to use on the following:

$1MM - For each Free Agent scouting report.
$1MM - For each scouting report from a player on another team.
$500K - For each scouting report from a player on your team.

You can also interview coaches for jobs. If you decide to steal another coach from another team, it has to be a move up. PC/HC can be interviewed for Manager positions. SD can be interviewed for Manager/PC/HC.

You may begin scouting now if you wish. I will begin to assemble a free agent player and coaches list soon.

As of right now, I’m going to put a deadline for offseason lock-in for January 7th, end of day.

If you don’t think you can make this deadline, please PM me on the boards or in Discord.

Alright for preseason lock in.

You will have all roster members available (yes, that includes reserve roster) to be used.

You can break it down as specific as you’d like in terms of batting order, who is the starting pitcher, etc... or you can be as vague as leaving it up to managers.

You’d just have to post how you’d like each game to go in your lock in.

For those that were penalized for being over reserve cap, you need to correct yourself before you lock in for preseason.

When threads unlock, you’ll address the press on an open press conference. You may or may not get any follow up questions.

About spring training.

It wouldn’t let me sub in depth as manager switched it back to starting lineup. So as of now, looks like only starters can be manipulated. But I haven’t tried that yet so not 100% there either.

Thanks for being patient as we treat this season sort of like a BETA run.

Starting this week (Week 5 lock in), you MUST post your 3 game lineups.

If you want you can opt for managers decision.

Reason being is injuries have caused lineups to adjust and they don't adjust back unless I do so manually. So I can't say for certain if a manager is automatically going to play a guy recovered from injury or if the sub stays in. So choose "managers decision" at your own discretion.     

ALSO

If you read so on Discord or in the League Rules thread, salary CAN be retained in a trade.

That is all!

STARTING WEEK 5 LOCK IN

You must post your lineups for lock-in.

You can have 3 different ones for the 3 game series, you have one for all three. That is up to you.

You can also just say managers decision, but if you do this, it doesn't mean he will make the changes discussed in the team thread. The sim literally will have the manager do the lineup how he wants it.

The reason for this is because of injuries to players makes the manager do weird things and resets the lineups and it's easier for me to update it on your lock-in then to try and find your last lock-in with changes.

After posting presser, whenever you are done with your Manager and whatever else you want to do... you must talk with the owner for a midseason report.

If you ever get the generic blank face for your players picture, it's because I haven't made a pic for that player yet. I'll go back and edit it when I get home and add it.

I'll make a more official post about this when the offseason gets underway, but for planning purposes. We will be getting rid of the reserve roster and have a minimum of a 27 man roster, maximum of a 30 man roster for next season. You must have at least 15 batters and 10 pitchers rostered with the rest up to each GM how you want to fill out the roster.

All contracts will have the option to be voided for no cost to the team. So basically, you can cut any player you don't want or feel is over paid. With that said, chances of being able to re-sign the cut player back to the team at a cheaper price is low (albeit not impossible) and it should make a pretty wild free agency period.

If you have any questions about these changes, please hit me up on PM or Discord.

Just a reminder...

You still have to talk to your owner before you lock-in for the offseason.

Once again, if your thread gets skipped its because I'm at work and need the sim to answer the question. So I'll get to the response when I get home.

Alright, so we officially have a full 16 GM slate!

Please welcome back GM Gravedigger as he will take over New Orleans.

Also welcome our newest General Managers... GM Stark in Austin, GM Black Death in San Diego, and GM Bennett in London!

Once everyone has locked in for the offseason, we will begin the Winter Meetings.

For those without Stadium Sponsorship (new GMs included), you may negotiate with a sponsor for PR money for offseason scouting. I will have a thread with a running list of PR$ remaining for scouting purposes up tonight or tomorrow.

You may begin scouting whenever you'd like. Each team has been given their $5MM of offseason PR.

Remember:

$1MM for each scouting report.

You can scout anyone in the draft, anyone in free agency, or anyone on your team.

Attached is the S7 Draft Class for easy access.

Getting questions about the roster cuts without penalty.

You have until the draft STARTS to make your roster cuts, if you choose to make any.

Once the draft starts, you will be penalized half the contract for each season left on the deal for any roster cuts.

Either tonight or tomorrow morning, I will be posting S6 team stats in Discord.

Don't have access to Discord while at work though or else I'd post it now.

Apologies for the inconsistency in updates, etc.

Been super busy at work + holidays + travel coming up.

Shooting for a soft deadline around 12JAN19 for lock-ins, but may extend it if need be.
