  • Thinking ahead: Sunday at Noon is the deadline for Week minus One transactions.  Check out the schedule/deadline page for some planning about what you need to do for Week Zero and Week One.
    • Lineups are due Week 1, but there's a one-week lag between picking up a player and using him.  So if you need to fill spots for Opening Day, you need to pick them up by March 31.
    • Also - don't forget that for returning leagues, your cash balance must be at 5000 or lower at Week Zero.


  • North Siders League Phase Two Draft, Part Three posted - see North Siders Draft Index - That's it for the draft - you're done.  We start off with weekly transactions with deadline next Sunday.


  • Steel City League Phase Two Draft, Part Four posted - see Steel City Draft Index - That ends the draft process...and you're off to trades and free agency beginning with this week's transaction deadline of Sunday, March 9.



  • Contract extensions will begin this week...but are not yet activated (plenty of time)


  • Anchorman League Phase Two Draft, Part Three, results posted - see Anchorman Draft Index Draft is complete!  League now enters weekly transaction cycle (starting this week - deadline Sunday).


  • Redistribution Results Index Draft complete - Rosters updated with new players
  • Free agency and trades are open.  This week's deadline is Sunday, Feb 23 at Noon EST.  Transaction order for this week is the same as for the Redistribution Draft.
  • Special posting of Week -7 Transactions - This is a pre-Redistribution Draft cut of retired players from the rosters.  Players that officially retire before the start of the season are removed with a 100% salary rebate (unless previously signed to a multiyear contract, then there is no rebate).


  • The Redistribution Draft is extended to allow me time to finish off the orphan teams.  You have a couple more days to make your selections (see the link on your team roster).  Deadline is Tuesday 2/11/14 Noon EST.


  • Results of carryover choices posted.  View the Transactions page to see the cuts in your league.
  • The 2014 Redistribution Draft is now open.  You have 2 weeks to make your selections (see the link on your team roster).  Deadline is Sunday 2/9/14 Noon EST.


  • There are a few open spots in some private "prize" leagues - they require an extra entry fee but the leagues pay out prizes.  Check out the list of orphans and under the invitation leagues you can check out the teams for Beer League, Murderers' Row, and Moneyball League.  If interested, you can email me and I'll get you in touch with the league owners.
