Dynasty League Rules - 2014

1. Rotisserie Style, Standard 5X5, Daily Changes, Yahoo League.

2. League of 14 Teams.

3. No Limits on the Number of Moves by a Manager.

4. 30 Man Team Rosters.  No DL Slots. 

5. 12 Active Hitting Slots.  C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, OF, OF, OF, OF, UT, UT.  Limit of 180 games played per position.

6. 9 Active Pitcher Slots. 3SP, 3RP, 3P.  Limit of 1,650 innings pitched.

7. Trade Approval: League Vote (48 Hours).

8.  The League is a Dynasty League.  Each team keeps all players from year to year, including minor leaguers.  Thus there is no annual Major League draft other than ‘keeper’ draft which is done automatically by Yahoo.

9.  Standard Yahoo Waiver Wire Rules will be in effect.

10.  Standard Yahoo Trade Rules and Deadline will be in effect.

11.  Waiver order for the start of our 2014 season will be in reverse order of the 2013 finish.  Brooklyn DL’s will have the 1st priority.  San Diego Chickens will have the 14th priority.

12.  Waiver requests can be put in starting on March 7th.

13.  The Keeper Deadline is March 5th.  All managers are responsible for selecting ALL their players as keepers by that date.

14.  The Minor League Draft will be conducted via E-Mail beginning April 7th.  Each Team will draft up to 5 Minor League players.  The Minor League Draft will be in reverse order of the 2013 finish.  Brooklyn DL’s will have the 1st selection. 
San Diego Chickens will have the 14th selection.

15.  The Minor League Draft in 2014 as well as future Drafts will NOT be serpentine.  Example: The 14th place finisher (Brooklyn DL’s) will pick first in each round for which he has a Minor League roster opening.

16.  Prior to the 2014 Minor League Draft, managers have the option to:
a. Promote their Minor Leaguers to their Major League roster
b. Demote their Major Leaguers to their Minor League roster
c. Drop any or all of their Minor Leaguers
d. Retain any or all of their Minor Leaguers for the following season

17.  Any changes to your Minor League Roster resulting from Rule 16 above MUST be announced via E-Mail to the other Managers by March 31st.

18.  During and after the Minor League Draft, the Minor League Rosters will be posted at my blogspot.  http://therichjustmann.blogspot.com/

19.  Any player (Major or Minor League in real life) can be placed on a manager’s Minor League roster.  Please note that once a manager drafts any player during the Minor League draft and places him on the manager’s Minor League roster, all Minor League roster rules apply to that player regardless of his designation in real life.  In other words, he’s a Minor to us regardless of the real world.

20.  Any player (Major or Minor League in real life) can be selected via Waivers or Free Agency prior to the start of the season.  However, if a manager selects a Minor League player, the player must remain on his Major League roster for the entire season or be dropped.  The player cannot be demoted to the manager’s Minor League roster.

21.  To reiterate rule #20:  A manager can select anyone he wants on his Major League team prior to the start of the season.  However, if he does so, he must carry the player for the full year or drop him. So it's basically a trade-off. Carry the future star and sacrifice some productivity this year versus having the star for future years......

22.  A manager may choose to promote a Minor League player to his Major League roster at any time.  Of course he must drop a Major League player in order to open a roster spot for the promoted player.  Once the manager has promoted the Minor League player, he will have an opening on his Minor League roster for the remainder of the season.  He will have the opportunity to fill that roster slot during the Minor League draft the following season.

23.  Each manager will receive the number of draft choices for which he has available openings.  For example, should a manager have 3 Minor Leaguers on his roster prior to the draft (due to prior promotion to his Major League roster or his declaration prior to the draft that he will be dropping one or more of his Minor Leaguers), he will then be eligible to make 2 draft picks in the Minor League draft.

24.  If another manager picks up the dropped player mentioned in Rule #20, the same rule applies during the season.  However, the acquiring manager has the right to demote the player to his Minor League roster during the off-season.

25.  Minor league roster limit remains at 5 players for the start of the 2014 season.

26.  During the 2014 season, managers may increase their minor league roster to more than 5 players. Of course, since players cannot be drafted on to the minor league roster or demoted to the minor league roster during the season, the only way the 6th or 7th player slot comes into play is through a trade.

27.  The 2014 minor and major league trade deadline is August 17th – the default Yahoo deadline.

28.  If managers do a major for minor trade and which the Yahoo system does not support, the commissioner will make the necessary changes via the commissioner tools.
