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.
The 2021 bidding wars are done, hope you all enjoyed it and got all your holes filled without taking too bad a beating. Next up is your free agent decisions, the guidelines are posted below and need to be in to Seth by Sunday March 7th no later than 10 pm. As always Seth did another great job running the free agent draft again this year, Thanks Seth your hard work is greatly appreciated.
I will give you all until Sunday night 10pm EST to make your decisions. Of course, the sooner the better. All FA decisions must be made at that time.
Trading is re-opened.
For non-bid FAs, either release them for 250 pts or sign them. I will take all other roster decisions also. The sooner you get me your roster decisions, the sooner I can set up the General Draft site. Decisions need to be made on all players with a '0' in Column D. At that point, you must be below the salary cap. Please make all roster decisions by Tuesday 3/9.
Do not make quick decisions to release your non-bid RFAs since there may be interest in them as things sort their way out. Once you announce a release, it cannot be rescinded.
For bid FAs, you may either match the bid or release the player to the winning team for compensation. You may either take a compensatory draft pick as below or take 500 pts.
Annual Bid Salary Pick
10,000+ points First & Second Round Compensation Picks
6,000 – 9,999 points First Round Compensation Pick
3,000 – 5,999 points Second Round Compensation Pick
1,500 – 2,999 points Third Round Compensation Pick
Less Than 1,500 points Fourth Round Compensation Pick
When posting your decision please make sure you say what you are choosing for compensation. Also if you do not indicate the contract, it will be the bid contract.
I will do my best to update the roster file after decisions are made and will be using stratdraft for the general draft again. It does take a while to get that set up, so be patient. I am targeting the week of the 15th for the General Draft
