- I'm unavailable and unable to update the website until December 11. I won't be able to assign any orphan teams during that time. All should be set up to allow for trades over the next 2 1/2 weeks to get to December 10. Happy Thanksgiving!
- Team finances updated for playoff awards
- Check all your teams to see if you have any pending trade offers. The first trade deadline is Sunday 12/4.
- Check all your teams for errors in your carryover choices - deadline is January 2.
- Reminder - before you can pick your players to drop before 2024 or participate in trades, you must answer yes about keeping your teams in 2024. Deadline is December 31 after which we assume the unanswered teams become Orphans.
- Lots of changes and updates as we move on to the 2024
- Salary cap cash has been distributed. The 2024 salary cap is 40575 (was 41833 in 40735).
- Cash rewards for playoff performance will be distributed on Wednesday
- 2024 salaries are posted and are final - Premium salary adjustments have already been applied
- 2024 player positions are updated but not final
- Any player showing an "x" in their position didn't have any MLB stats in 2023, so I need to go back in and check what they did in the minors in 2023 (or maybe they didn't play at all and might be removed from the list) - their positions may change.
- That usually takes a lot of time and will be finished sometime late December/early January
- Player retention decisions for 2024 can now be made from your team roster pages. Deadline to complete this is expected to be Sunday, January 7 - if you have a lot of teams, don't wait!!
- First step before you can do any trading or pick your carryover players - indicate if you're keeping each of your teams in 2024. You must answer "yes" before you may submit any trades or before anyone can contact you for trades. Deadline is December 31 or we assume the unanswered teams become Orphans.
- New leagues for 2024 will be opened in late December.
- As people indicate they're dropping teams, orphans will become available.
- Trades are now open for a 3-week trading period, ending on Sunday, Dec. 10. Following that will be another 3-week trade period open through December 31.
- Team finances updated with cash awards on final division placement. Post season rewards are added after the salary cap is calculated.
- Player salaries for 2024 are final (but not yet posted) - working today on salary cap and positions and will open up the rosters when all that is complete (maybe tonight, but definitely by tomorrow).
