  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: The -$1 thread

    The first player signed to a multi-year deal was waived. Andy Pettitte (2 yrs/$13 per) by Kings of Arbitration. Therefore K of A will have only $259 instead of $260 in next year's auction. This will be adjusted by adding $1 to the price of one of his keepers when the keepers are loaded, and then the $1 will be subtracted once the auction is completed. (Edit: I am checking all the rosters now to see if I missed any...this caught my eye because he was picked up on waivers, in which...

  1. New teams lottery for 2012

    3 new teams to be distributed - the Ubaldo Beavers, Dirty Sanchez, and the Romanian Yankees. (All names can be changed!) 3 new owners - Cabrera!, dgreco, and Black Sabbathia. Can you all please post here - or get someone to post for you - to confirm that you're willing to play? The cost will be $10 this year per team. Each new owner will randomly get one of the teams listed above. You can see the full rosters on this thread: http://forums.nyyfans.com/showthread.php/129265-2011-Round-up. ...

  2. Gdr 2013?

    I thought the league worked fairly well last year, but I've heard from one owner that he doesn't intend to return for 2013. How many other owners might be interested in playing again? I'll happily sign up for another go-round, but it's pretty dependent on getting enough turn-out to make it worthwhile. Be seeing you, Saxmania

  4. FAB 2012 countdown and tracking

    Last time, we had a single FAB thread for people to post questions and signings, so here we go again. Before we begin (around 48 hours from the time of this post), a FAQ: Make sure you've decided whether to dump your whole roster ("Firesale") or not. Dumping the whole roster includes prospects, and you will have $100m free to spend. You can waive individual players instead of dumping the whole roster, but then you're on the hook for half their remaining salary - unless they get claimed by...

  5. Minor League Draft

    Ok, gentlemen, the hardest part of getting our league together is behind us! With the completion of the actual auction we are good to go for the season. I applaud everyone for making the time and working it out to make sure that they were involved. :clap: It is VERY difficult to get 13 teams in a league where no one has a real inherent comitment to being there. All of you guys went out of your way to help get this up and running, and for that we should all be thankful. A special...

  8. Free Agent Blitz period moved and shortened

    I've moved the Free Agency Blitz period to start on the 15th of March, which is next Thursday. That gives us a couple of weeks between that ending and the season starting to add more players, make trades, etc. The Japan games aren't included in the league this year, so the matches won't begin until MLB week 2. I've also changed the periods for each of the 5 rounds of the FAB to 1 day, rather than 2, and the time between events (players going on the market, players signing contracts) to 3...

  10. Any new joiners for 2012?

    At the moment we have 7 confirmed returning owners out of 10, with one owner (Romanian Yankees) feeling he doesn't really have the time to commit to this, so willing to bow out if anyone else wants a team. If you'd like to join the GDR league for 2012, or you know someone who would, could you post in this thread? You do get the option to dump the roster you inherit, I believe ('firesale'), so you won't necessarily get stuck with a Houston Astros, but every team has some upside as far as I...

  14. The "I'm Not Posting This News For Any Particular Reason :evil:" Thread.

    I figured we should start one of these threads. Kind of like a trash talking thread, but more subtle. Post bits of news about players here that you "just want to share, because you thought the league would like to know..." and you "don't even know who has the guy, but I figured I would just put it out there..." I'll start off. I don't know who has this guy, but I thought this was interesting:

  15. GDR tips and info

    Thought it might be good to have a new thread for this. 4 days until the Free Agency period starts; some notes for the newcomers: Make sure you add players to your Team Planner, and adjust the opening bid to be reasonable. Albert Pujols may say he'll sign for $5m or up, but if someone else opens bidding at $16m, your $6m opening bid will be automatically entered, meaning that a) you'll lose the chance to bid for Pujols again, and b) your GM rating will decline for making a poor bid. You...

  16. Handling payment?

    As I understand it, someone is paying for the entire league (Saxmania?) and then we will send him $10 each, right? Rather than us paying $24.95 to play individually, correct?

  20. Price to join GDR league

    All, An apology - during the offseason, I stated that the fee to join the 2012 league would be $10/team. This was based on the cost of the league in 2011, and the advertised cost of starting a new league in 2012 on the website. However, going to renew the league, it's actually a total cost of $199.95 to renew an existing league, not $99.95 as I thought. So the cost per owner would be $20 each. This would still be a discount on the individual cost of $25/player if we joined...
