New Millenium League Strat-O-Matic Baseball
The NML is a Strat-O-Matic baseball league, entering its 21st season. We expanded to 16 teams in 2006, but we are always looking for new enthusiastic managers willing to face a challenge. This is a salary format league, utilizing contracts, free-agency, protected farm systems, soft salary cap, and bonus point system based on team performance. We also implement a division realignment every year, similar to that of English Premier Football (Soccer). We have a great group of guys that enjoy spirited competition.
Congratulations to Jon Gordon and the 2020
Darwin Cup Champion Worcester Tornadoes!!
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic there have been some one time rule adjustments pertaining to eligibility requirements and player usage for the 2021 season only. These adjustments to the rules can be found at the top of the By-Laws page.
Congratulations to Seth and his Long Island Sound as they extended their lead in the Nietzchean Division to 6 games over the Yonkers Cobras and claimed their second consecutive Team of the Month Honor with a league best 21-8 record in June although three teams, Yonkers, New Britain and San Joaquin gave them a run for it with records of 20-9. Long Island, Yonkers, Monroe and New Britain currently hold the top four spots in the division. Minnesota and Northeast still have playoff hopes but will need to make a strong showing in July to stay alive. Things are a bit closer in the Socratic with Niagara Falls holding a slim 1 game lead over second place San Joaquin Valley followed by Haven, 7 games back and Charleston a distant fourth and 15 games behind. Hartford, California and Homestead are still in the hunt for Charleston's final playoff spot as is Houston but they need to seriously pick up the pace in July. Realistically we still have 13 teams in contention for the 8 playoff spots but this upcoming month is probably going to cut that number significantly. Good luck to everyone in July!
2021 power ratings
The experts in Lost Vegas have posted the latest power ratings following the General draft and it looks like we will all be reaching for the Black Flag Wasp and Hornet spray during the hot summer months ahead if the numbers are correct. Remember though that the experts aren't always right and they have left out the element of a human manager, your managing skills can make all the difference in the final standings leading up to the exciting and unpredictable playoffs.
