ESPN Site Issues
day-to-day issues, whatever they are, won’t be addressed/fixed by the commishes. If there is a problem and it effects > 1 day we will address it on a case by case basis. Solution? Make life easy on everyone and just set your lineups far enough ahead of time that site problems are not to blame for lineup submission errors, or any errors for that matter. If there are issues, see league communication above.

1) an official or unofficial at bat, 2) pinch run, 3) partial inning pitched, 4) fielded a defensive position for a partial inning.

Official SSB League Reference Source: http://www.baseball-reference.com/

MLS Rosters http://www.fantasysharks.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=95&t=261712

*Once a player is promoted to an owner’s active roster he loses MLS eligibility
*Once a player is promoted an owner can replace his spot on the MLS with another eligible player
*MLS will be tracked offline by the commish, whenever a change is made he will email an updated version to the co-commish so there are two records available in the event one were to get lost
*To make a change to your MLS post all transactions in the league thread and pm/email both commish’s to notify of the change, a commish will pm/email you an update of your MLS once the transaction is completed
*a player does not need to be available in ESPN's player pool to be eligible for the minor league squad, they just need to exist and be signed by a MLB team and on a minor league team
*when a MLS player is dropped it is first come first served free agency for said player(s)
*Any time an owner wishes to move a player from the MLS to the active roster that is not currently in the ESPN player DB a 'scrub' will be used as a placeholder instead. In the event that said scrub is dropped at any time consider that player a free agent. This 'scrub' will be identified on the league page via memo note for record keeping purposes. Once prospect is in the Data Base the LM Drops scrub/ Adds prospect. This is not restricted to the MLS, if a player is not in ESPN's DB and you wish to add that player add a scrub to your active roster and email/pm a commish to let them know who the scrub constitutes, posting a note on the shark page as a backup would be a good idea too.

2012 Season Rule Change

MLS Roster Addition Tie Breaker:
In the event that multiple owners submit a MLS roster claim for a player in a given week, the teams that submitted the request will be asked if they would like to exercise their waiver option. The owner with the highest waiver option that accepts will be awarded the MLS eligible player and, will result in the use of their waiver standing placing them at the end of the waiver priority list. If no owner elects to accept the player, the MLS eligible player will be awarded to the team currently lowest in the standings but will not result in the use of their waiver priority. In the rare event of a tie in the current ESPN standings at the time, the player will be awarded to the team one with the highest (i.e.best) waiver priority but the addition of the player will not result in the use of their waiver priority.


2015 Season Rule Change
None noted to date.




The Draft
*Draft clock in effect – 8 hours, this is the maximum, the expectation is significantly less. Stuff happens, and there will be delays, as in any slow draft but we need everyone’s max effort to make these delays as few and far between as possible. Slow drafters will be heckled, and the owners can deal with it.
*Draft clock will be turned off between midnight and 8 am est Mon-Fri and on weekends, this DOES NOT mean the draft is on hold but only that the clock is not on.
*Picks can be made via text and posted by other league owners, share your cell # with people selecting on either side of you, especially if you’re not frequently at a computer. Some prefer email, and if that works for you then do that instead. Whatever is fastest, and best, for you.
*If an owner's clock expires the next drafter's clock begins and the draft continues as it would have had the owner with the expired clock had selected. This owner is permitted to pick at any time but until they pick their turn will be skipped in all future rounds until they do so.
*If the draft is not being completed at a reasonable pace the commish can change the draft rules mid-draft, any changes will take into effect beginning the next day after posting. The commish would rather not do this, he’s just covering his bases in case he has to.
*The Commish will update the draft thread daily, it is each owner’s responsibility to ensure a player has not been selected before picking. This is as simple as hitting ctrl+f and entering in a player’s name in the draft thread and then ensuring said player has not been picked since the last update. In the event that the commish will be unable to update the draft thread on a given day he will do his best to find a replacement to do it, in the rare circumstance that he cannot then he will make a post stating so, and why, so the league is aware.



Declaring Keepers
*Due on or about March 1 every year, on the ESPN site. 2015 Season Keeper Date is Friday February 27, 2015 at 11pm.
*25 keepers (maximum, not a requirement) + MLS squad (again, maximum, not a requirement)
*Late entries will be penalized 1 keeper per day late. You can change your keepers up until midnight February 28th so don’t be afraid to post early (and lessen the late February work load on your favorite commish).



Mid season Mini Draft
*Immediately after the amateur signing deadline (0n or about July 20) there will be a mini draft based on the reverse order of the prior year standings. Once an owner has passed on making a pick they are not permitted to make another one.

Players selected in this draft are eligible for either the active roster or the MLS roster but at the time of the pick, the selecting owner must declare which roster and any applicable moves to maintain being within the maximul MLS and ESPN based roster limits. If this is not done and an owner's roster becomes in violation then the pick is voided until the owner fixes the error, the draft will continue as if the owner passed on their selection. Once the error is fixed they assume their original spot picking in the draft.



Future Drafts - Starting 2011 and after
*Straight drafts, last place finisher selects first each round, first place finisher selects last each round, and everything in between. Draft continues until all rosters are filled.
*Starting date is on or about March 1, unless a time can be arranged for a fast draft. A fast draft constitutes the entire league being available for at least a 3 hour period sometime between March 6 and March 15. Stuff happens, if someone needs to bail from a fast draft at least 24 hours notification is required, we can then begin a slow draft immediately. Any less and that owner is S.O.L., that owner can select their players after the draft is complete, selecting from the remaining player pool.


Trades
*Offseason trades permitted, beginning the day after the last regular season game
*The only time the trading window is closed is from the last eligible day ESPN allows (for 2015, it’s approximately August 20) until the end of the regular season
*Trade vetoes can only be made by the commish, and will only occur in obvious cases of collusion. If a league member has issue with a trade the commish processes he must file an appeal within 3 days of the trade being processed. The commish will post said complaint for all other league member’s to voice their concerns for a period of 4 days. At that time the commishes will re-visit the issue and determine what action, if any, should be taken.
*Trades involving both commishes will be approved by a third party, in this league’s case I am volunteering marty, whether he likes it or not.
*Trading of draft picks (both current and future) are permitted, as are trades involving MLS players – only restriction? Not violating roster limits at any time.


*Definition of Non ESPN Database Player:
Any player signed by a MLB team, a signed player could include MLB players not listed or Minor Leaguers at any level. Players signed by an Independant league team with no MLB affilitation are also eligible. All foreign players are ineligible until signed or drafted by an MLB team or Indepenent team. No College, High School, Little league..etc. players will be eligible. Claim process: A claim MUST be emailed or Pm'd to a commish by Sunday 12pm EST, these claims can only be processed on Sunday's. You could time post a claim as well on the Shark League page as a backup. The claim must include your team name, the player you want, and the player you're dropping. A commish will process the claim. We will make all necessary adjustments to the owner's roster. In the event two or more owners want the same player we will go by waiver priority order.


Tie breakers
*In the event that there are any ties in the final standings, ERA will be the tie breaker, if there needs to be a 2nd tie breaker then the commishes will dive face first, naked, into a snow drift and post it on youtube. If a 3rd tie breaker is needed, coin flip will be used.


League changes
*Proposals are accepted every January, and only January
*Voting will be done between Feb 1 and Feb 13 every year with a simple majority of owners needed to pass.
*Only in absolutely necessary situations will changes be made at other times


Dead Teams
*Hopefully I am wasting my time writing this
*Once a team has been identified as one that hasn’t been active over an extended period of time (i.e. a DL’d player left in the starting lineup for a period of > 1 week) an email and pm will be sent to that owner. If inactivity continues for a period of at least one week following said email that owner ‘s roster will be locked and a replacement will be found in the offseason.
*if you’re going to be inactive for an extended period of time (preferably) find a replacement to run your team in the meantime but if such an option isn’t available notify a commish. The commishes will do their best to ensure injured players are replaced during your period of inactivity, but day-to-day roster moves won’t be made.
*If you don’t have the time to commit to this league, that’s fine, real life > fantasy baseball, just do us all a favor and let us know BEFORE you become inactive so it does not effect the league. We would rather find a replacement, even if it is just temporary, then have the league suffer.


Unethical Practices
*Unlike the above I’m not wasting my time with this, just don’t do it, if you do then you will probably be booted from the league but it will be handled on a case by case basis.

Rule Change Proposal.

Current By- Laws read:
Once a player is promoted to an owner’s active roster he loses MLS eligibility

I wish to change/add it to read:
If a player is promoted to an active roster and subsequently dropped by that players owner back to the free agent pool, that player, if he qualifies, regains his MLS eligibilitly.


I think it's nearly impossible to track who has or does not have eligibility once a player is dropped from an active roster.
We may well have someone now, that was on a roster briefly, as a flier, dropped and now back on someone else's MLS roster.

I also don't see how, if an owner takes a flier on a prospect..promotes him to his roster..then drops him..with no counting stats acrued in the Majors..it should prevent another owner from picking this player up for his MLS, and if he still qualifies, placing him on his MLS.

I'd take 10balls suggestion a step further. I'd be for a MLS player promoted to espn roster that has no mlb counting stats at end of season being allowed to taxi back to MLS roster prior to keeper deadline.

We need some guidelines surrounding players signed to MLB contracts during a season. - Rusney Castillo last year for example and there will more this year

Right now, adding a player to your ESPN roster during a week trumps a MLS claim for that player submitted that week. If the new player isn't in the ESPN database, additional complications arise as I don't want to use a PM from Owner X who said they added Joe Doe to their ESPN roster instead of adding Joe Stud who just got announced as signing with the Dodgers and isn't in the ESPN DB

Thinking through this as I type, new players added to the ESPN DB have to clear waivers in the ESPN rules so in theory, that could be the process for adding those types of players to your ESPN roster. Newly signed MLB players during a season can't be added to your roster until they are in the ESPN DB and are subject to being claimed by all 12 teams with waiver priority on ESPN taking precedence?

In this scenario, my understanding is the player regains mls eligibility once he's cut.

I think the espn waivers process is sufficient. Want him? Claim him. If you want to try to slip him through to the mls and risk losing him because another owner claims him on the active roster then so be it. Similar story if you don't want to use waiver priority. See if he makes it through waivers then claim him before mls claims process.

The way I read the by laws read...once promoted he loses eligibility

Edit: I see what you may mean...the eligibility is determined once per year.
But according to the way it's set up...it says he's ineligible once promoted

the only thing that makes this difficult is that with these types of players, you never know when the player is added to the database. makes it extremely hard to track that.

I wish to change/add it to read:
If a player is promoted to an active roster and subsequently dropped by that players owner back to the free agent pool, that player, if he qualifies, regains his MLS eligibilitly.


I think it's nearly impossible to track who has or does not have eligibility once a player is dropped from an active roster.
We may well have someone now, that was on a roster briefly, as a flier, dropped and now back on someone else's MLS roster.

I also don't see how, if an owner takes a flier on a prospect..promotes him to his roster..then drops him..with no counting stats acrued in the Majors..it should prevent another owner from picking this player up for his MLS, and if he still qualifies, placing him on his MLS.

In this scenario, my understanding is the player regains mls eligibility once he's cut.


The way I read the by laws read...once promoted he loses eligibility

If that's the case then I'm on board. I thought the original intent was once a player is cut his eligibility is reset, if he still has it.

I really believe some kind of level-dependent eligibility guidelines would solve a few problems. For example, say that players in High-A ball or below can only be added to an MLS roster and are forbidden from active rosters. This would cut down on the need for non-database players, which is our biggest obstacle here. It would also make international players who are assigned to the low minors available to everyone for that claims period.

Then, once a player is promoted to AA or above, they are eligible to be activated by the owner. A promotion to AA is normally a big step in refinement, so it would provide us with structure - keeping the "ready or almost ready" players on your ESPN roster and the unrefined players on your MLS. That's what the MLS rosters were for to begin with. I could notate player eligibility on the MLS page. A mark next to players who can be promoted, etc. That part would not be difficult. We'll be keeping up with our own players anyway, so I doubt we'd want to cheat ourselves out of them.

Naturally, I agree that a player with no service time who's dropped from an active roster should retain MLS eligibility.

Also, I'm heavily in favor of three additional MLS spots. I like what someone said in the other thread - 25 keepers + 15 MLS = 40 permanent players, nice and round.

i'm ok with 3 extra spots, but we have already expanded from 10 to 12.

if we did do that, would we then want to add 3 rounds to this year's draft so that people can fill?

If the mls expands I think we need to discuss increasing the number of keepers.

I wouldn't be opposed to adding a single MLS per season until we get to 15.

Still looking to upgrade SP, OF, and RP. Preferably not a deal involving Correa.
