First Trading Period date announced

DATE: Sep-21, 2020

We're going to open the first trading period on September 30th. Since it's getting off to a later start than normal, it's going to end a little later than normal. This year it'll be ending on midnight of November 7th.

Files have been updated

In-Season Trading

DATE: May-26, 2020

Our in-season trading period will be starting on June 1st. Please report all trades to Mark.

Here are the particulars from our Constitution:

Beginning with the 2019 RML season, there will be an in-season trading period in June.

Trades can be made during the month of June, from the 1st to the 26th, to take effect during the July block.

Trades would not have to be "even." To compensate for "uneven" trades, teams may select from the unowned players to fill their playing roster back up to 30.

Teams must cut down to 30 if they end up with more. These moves would be made on June 27th.

"Added" players may not be retained at the conclusion of the season--they will go back into unowned when the season ends.

Players "cut" for June trades are not "pick-up-able" by others on the 27th.

"Added" players must be paid their minimum RML salary, based on experience, for the rest of the season.

Teams needing “added” players will pick them up in reverse standing order as of the end of the June block.

Tie-breaker will be worst division record.

Teams may have more than 45 minor leaguers after the June trading period is completed.

Files have been updated

DATE: Apr-18, 2020

The Master Roster and Player/Money Totals files in the Downloads dropdown have been updated to reflect today's Minor League Draft.

Next up is the 'Final Rosters Set' date (March 7th). This will be your final chance to make cuts, though each carded cut will cost you a bonus point.

If you'd like to cut multiple minor leaguers, it will cost you a bonus point for the whole group of them you're cutting.

The post-Draft Report

DATE: Jan-18, 2020

The Unowned Player Draft went fairly smoothly this afternoon. The results are posted on the Message Board (Unowned Player Draft forum, 2020 Unowned Player Draft topic).

All in all, 124 players were selected for a total of 9,443K. The biggest spenders were the Expos and Dodgers... doling out 946K and 878K respectively. The TinCaps nabbed 13 players.. most of any team.

Coincidentally, there was a tie at the co-highest bid... made on Luis Arraez at 303K... by the Captains and the TinCaps. The Captains narrowly edged out the TinCaps in the tiebreaker by being #2 in reverse finish order to the #4 TinCaps. Zach Pleasac drew the other co-highest bid at 303K by the Dodgers.

The Master Roster and Player/Money Totals files have been uploaded to the website and include the results of the draft. In addition to the money totals being updated, the player totals have also been updated in the Player/Money Totals file.

Trading will remain open until February 1st and the final day to cut players without penalty is February 8th.

This year's Waiver Draft will be held on February 22nd. The deadline for submitting lists is Friday the 21st at midnight. Since the Blaze will not be participating, you can start sending your draft lists to me anytime. I'm not anticipating a lot of action since most teams are either maxed out or currently over the limit of players.

The Pelicans have cut Adrian Sampson, so he'll join the leftovers from the Unowned Draft in the Waiver Availables list... which has incidentally just been posted in the Downloads section.

RML News

We have a date for the Unowned Player Draft. It will be held on January 18th. As usual, Lloyd will be hosting it and it's slated to start at noon. Anyone near or willing to travel to NE Ohio is welcome to join the fun of processing all the draft lists. I'll let you know when it's safe to send your draft lists to both Lloyd and myself.

Before that happens, we'll have our second trading period starting on January 1st... running through February 1st.

Also, Michael Grimm as decided to change his team name from the Indians to the River Cats. I've made the change to all the relevant files and in the manager directory.

World Series Update

DATE: Dec-01, 2019

The Highlanders are your 2019 RML champions... after sweeping the Pilgrims in the World Series. Dale will have a detailed writeup about the series shortly.

Congrats to both teams on great seasons!

Lists are finalized

DATE: Nov-23, 2019

All payrolls are now done and all lists have been finalized... including

  • Master Roster
  • Player/Money Totals
  • Free Agent List
  • Unowned Players List
  • Minor League Cuts

Concerning the preliminary free agent that was recently posted, the four Colt .45s' players being offered free agency were mistakenly marked as retaining answering rights when they do not. That's been corrected in the current file.

A few additions have been made to the list of unowned players.

Our 2019 World Series is scheduled to be played this weekend, so we'll be getting those results soon.

Also, Mark Berokoff has changed the name of his new team from the Athletics to the Dodgers. All changes have been made in the current files.

Tentatively Updated Lists

DATE: Nov-17, 2019

I know everyone is wanting to see the post-payoll lists, so I've added the following files to the downloads section:

  1. Free Agent List
  2. Unowned Players List
  3. Master Roster
  4. Player/Money Totals

Keep in mind that these are not finished products. I'm still finalizing payrolls in a couple of cases and there will be some additions and updates to these lists in the coming days.

World Series and more

DATE: Nov-14, 2019

Congrats to the Highlanders and the Pilgrims for advancing to the World Series.

As soon as the final couple payrolls come in, the updated Unowned Player Draft list will become available... as well as the Free Agent Draft list and updated player/money totals.

File Updates

DATE: Nov-01, 2019

The RML Master Roster and Current Money Totals files in the dropdown have been updated to include all trades and payrolls submissions for 5 teams.

November 2nd Edit:

  1. RML usage limits for the coming season have been added to the master roster file for both pitchers and hitters.
  2. A couple corrections in both of the new files (team change from a recent trade and a couple money balance corrections for teams I've already notified about the changes) have been made.
  3. The player/money file now includes 6 teams post payroll submission.

RML Update

DATE: Oct-25, 2019

The updated Current Money Totals file in the Downloads dropdown now reflects finish money, debits/credit from trades, bonus money and playoff earnings. It's even more up to date than the file I sent out last night.

They don't include any player totals for major leaguers or minor leaguers. Note, the Pelicans and River Dogs info (which is highlighted) in both of these files reflects the fact that they've already submitted their 2020 payrolls.

Which reminds me that payrolls for the 2020 season are due by thew end of the day on November 9th... as are our $10 annual league dues (which need to be sent to Lloyd if it's in the form of a check... or to me if you'd like to pay in some other manner... they I'll forward it to Lloyd).

Just so the playoffs don't drag on too long, let's set a deadline for this current round at the end of October... the same date that our current trading period ends.

Also, the Gray have advanced to the AC championship game by eliminating the Blaze in 5 games.

Master Roster updated

DATE: Oct-08, 2019

The RML Master Roster file in the Downloads dropdown has been updated to include 2 new columns showing contract status for the upcoming season. Highlighted cells in those 2 columns indicate an expired contract.

It has also had the new 'Bats' column fixed. Hopefully they are all correct now.

RML Update

DATE: Oct-06, 2019

Now that we've re-instating league dues, the preferred method of paying them is to mail a $10 check to Lloyd (made out to him personally) at his address listed in the Manager Directory. The deadline is November 9th.

We now have a 'Rule Change and Voting' committee that will be in charge of those areas... including making the rules governing rule changes and voting. The 3-member committee consists of Dave Scott (Twins), Mike Borzenski (Mudhens) and George Calage (Reds). They're going to be monitoring the message board rule change forum, but you can and should interact with them concerning your ideas too.

The first playoff LZP has been sent, so we can get the wildcard series started. The matchups are: Monarchs at Blaze in the AC and Reds at Yellow Jackets in the NC. These results are due to be reported to Mark by October 15th.

Several files in the downloads dropdown have been updated (and they were also included earlier today in a group email). The files are:

  1. Preliminary unowned player list complete with usage and OPS numbers for all players and a position summary for each player from baseball-reference.com.
  2. A new 'current player / money totals' file in a new format. I converted it into a spreadsheet since it lends itself better to that format. I'm not going to updating the player totals until after payrolls are submitted in November. Only money is being updated actively for now.
  3. The RML master roster file which I've added 15 columns to the right of the historical columns. Most of the new columns are self explanatory, but here's an explanation of some things that might not be. Some players in the 'Protected Rate' column are highlighted. Those are the players eligible for long term contracts. A small number of players in the 'Minimum Offer' column are highlighted. Those are the players who were in contracts needing to be bought out because they aren't carded, with the number being the amount necessary to buy them out. The 'Position(s)' column is taken from baseball-reference.com (an asterisk before a position means they played 2/3 of their teams games at that position; everything after the slash means they played less than 10 games at those positions (I think D must mean DH). Finally, as a reminder (even though this isn't new), in the 'Ct' column (usually showing the length of a contract), there are some players showing a 'P'. That means the player was an in-season pickup that must be given back after the season ends.

In all of these files, I've named the active sheet using the date it was last modified. You can find this date in the lower left corner as the sheet name (today's files have their sheets named 2019-10-06).

DATE: Oct-05, 2019

Depending on which source you're using, there was a little disagreement in the league average OPS for the 2019 season. ESPN listed it as .757, while others (including Baseball-Reference) listed it as .758.

So, I decided to make an exact calculation using the following:

(42040 Hits + 15895 BB + 1984 HBP) / (166651 AB + 15895 BB + 1984 HBP + 1150 SF) = .32270 OBP

72469 TB / 166651 AB = .43485 SLG

Using standard rounding gives us a .758 (which was .75755 before rounding) league average OPS.

Hitters at or below .633 will be considered unlimited.

Pitchers at or above .808 will be considered unlimited.

Thanks to the message board posts for reminding me to post this.

Updates Completed

DATE: Sep-15, 2019

The 'behind the scenes' software version updates to the message board and to certain website files has been successfully completed.

Everything should be just as it was before the updates.

Website Updates in Progress

DATE: Sep-15, 2019

Our webhost is going to be updating the version of PHP our website can use in the not too distant future, so right now our message board software is being updated to the latest version... as well as some of the files for the main website.

During this period, the message board won't be accessible.

When everything is successfully completed, you shouldn't notice any differences with either the website or the message board. Everything being done is behind the scenes.

I'll make a post here once these updates are completed.

Strike Another From Unowned Eligibles

DATE: Dec-24, 2017

Thanks to eagle-eyed league champion Mike Gullo: Fernando Rodriguez has been struck from the eligibles list--he didn't play in The Show in 2017.


Change has been made to the "2018 Unowned Eligibles" list in the "Downloads" dropdown. Announcement on acceptance of lists after Christmas.

A Couple of Changes to Unowned List

DATE: Dec-19, 2017

I have made a couple of changes to the "2018 Unowned Eligibles" list in the Downloads dropdown after some eagle-eyed catches from the constituency:

Matt Albers and Ryan Pressly were moved from the hitters list to the pitchers list, where they belong; and A.J. Pierzynski has been removed--he didn't play last year.
