My inauguration as president of OSML was the most well attended Baseball Mogul event of all time. Period.
Don't read the next sentence. Ohhhhh you sly dog!
Our time on this planet is short. Be nice. Have a good time.

No New Posts Trades

None after the trading deadline. Must be an equal, reasonable trade and will be approved by 2 of 3 Trade Moderators. Without at least 2 approvals, the trade will not be input and must be reworked or abandoned.

In the event that one (or two) Trade Moderators are involved in the trade, the league commissioner can weigh in with approval or veto.

Draft Picks for the current season, and NEXT season, may be traded. However no accumulating team can accumulate more than 2 first round or 2 second round draftees for any single year.

Free Agents just signed in the previous offseason cannot be traded until Jun 1st.

No New Posts Resignings

2. Must post EVERY step of the players negotiation in which you offered.

3. TWO OPTIONS:
a) single dollar-amount that can be offered until accepted, OR
b) max of 3 offers. (But you can make 3 offers, then accept the player's counter)

4. You may sign a player to an arbitration offer if you wish. Just post that you offer arbitration at end of season, and the simmer will offer 80% of the player's requested amount during the sim to off-season.

5. If a player is not resigned, I will assume you want him to be released. (Even if he is an all star player!) Make sure you get these in on time. I provide A LOT of time for notice on when these are due.
