    Default VOTING: Minor League Free Agents

    The FOBL Constitution currently outlines the in-season Free Agency process as follows:

    C. In-Season Free Agents

    1. In order to claim an In-Season Free Agent, an owner must send a PM, naming the desired players, to all BoG members prior to the beginning of the sim in which the owner desires to obtain the In-Season Free Agent. If two or more teams claim the same In-Season Free Agent, the tiebreakers used to determine which team wins the In-Season Free Agent shall be, in order, (a) worst overall record; (b) worst record in head-to-head matchups between the claiming teams; (c) worst record in the current sim; and (d) worst record in the last sim, and so on with the worst record in the preceding sims in reverse chronological order until a winner is determined. The Commissioner may implement and modify, as necessary, reasonable replacement or additional procedures for signing In-Season Free Agents. The Commissioner shall provide conspicuous notice of the replacement or additional procedures and of any further modifications.

    2. In-Season free agents may only be signed to 1-year contracts for a minimum value of $100,000 per year. No minor league contracts are allowed, even if the player asks for one. Contracts may not be enacted via in-game offers. Teams found to have signed players to minor league contracts via in-game offers will:

    a. For a first offense in a season, forfeit the player.
    b. For all subsequent offenses in that season, forfeit the player and pay a fine of $210k.

    3. A released player must be in the free agent pool for one sim period prior to being signed by another team. Violation of this rule will result in the player being re-released into the free agent pool and the offending team not being eligible to own that player for the rest of the season in which the infraction occurs.
    It is proposed that this section be revised to read:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    C. In-Season Free Agents

    1. In-season free agents are classified as either Major League Free Agents or Minor League Free Agents.

    a. A Major League Free Agent is any player in the free agent pool who has accumulated at least one day of Major League service time.
    b. A Minor League Fee Agent is any player in the free agent pool who has not accumulated any Major League service time, regardless of age or other experience.

    2. In order to claim an In-Season Free Agent, an owner must post his claim in the designated thread for that season, prior to the beginning of the sim in which the owner desires to obtain the player.

    a. For Major League Free Agents, all claims are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. All In-Season Major League Free Agents will be granted a one-year, $100,000 contract.
    b. For Minor League Free Agents, more than one team may submit a claim for any given player. In the event that two or more teams post a claim for the same player, the team with the worst overall record will be awarded the claim. If two or more teams have the same W-L record at the time the claim is posted, the team with the lower team batting average will be used as the tiebreaker. In the event that the teams are still tied, the claim will be awarded to the team with the higher team ERA.

    3. An owner may change or withdraw a Major League Free Agent claim at any time prior to processing, but may not submit more than one Major League Free Agent claim per sim period.

    4. All Minor League Free Agent claims are binding once posted, and may not be changed or withdrawn. Owners may not submit more than one Minor League Free Agent claim per sim period.

    5. Free Agent contracts (either Major League or Minor League) may be not be enacted via in-game offers. Teams found to have signed players to minor league contracts via in-game offers will:

    a. For a first offense in a season, forfeit the player.
    b. For all subsequent offenses in that season, forfeit the player and pay a fine of $210k.

    6. A released player must be in the free agent pool for one sim period prior to being signed by another team. Violation of this rule will result in the player being re-released into the free agent pool and the offending team not being eligible to own that player for the rest of the season in which the infraction occurs.

    7. There are no limits to the number of Free Agent claims allowed within a given season.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please note that the revisions to Section 1 of the existing Constitution are *not* being voted on in this amendment. Rather, they are included here only as a reflection of the recent changes to our current process.

    If approved, this amendment will go into effect immediately.

    Voting will end at 10 p.m. ET on Monday, December 17th, 2007 (prior to the Opening Day sim).
