Advanced, highly realistic fantasy league
Posted: 21 December 2010 07:04 AM   [ Ignore ]

Looking for a serious and active owner for a 12-team, AL-only league now entering its 13 year.  Mendoza Baseball (http://www.mendozabaseball.com) is a realistic simulation of the MLB economic and roster system.  The scoring is based on Jim Furtado’s XR, with team runs scored and runs allowed combined into a W-L record based on Bill James’ Pythagorean theorem.  Some of the features of the league are:

- eBay-style free agent auction with long-term (up to 3-year) contracts
- Full reserve clause system with team control for first six years of MLB service time
- Arbitration simulator for determining salaries of arb-eligible players
- Full MLB-like economic model where low-payroll teams can earn a profit if they have modest success
- 40-man major league roster and 20-man minor league roster
- Options and waiver system for moving players among rosters
- 4-round minor league player draft
- Winter tournament played using Diamond Mind
- Saber-friendly scoring rules
- Very active and competitive ownership group

To see the team, go here http://www.mendozabaseball.com/signup.asp and click on “Everett Eightballs”.  The Major League roster needs some work, but the team does have several excellent prospects:

Nava, Daniel
Viciedo, Dayan
Anderson, Lars
Conger, Hank
Pineda, Michael
Moore, Matt
Moustakas, Mike
Montgomery, Mike

Salaries of players signed through 2011 are paid by previous owner, so you get a $30 credit just for signing up!
