  • Unique, Realistic Dynasty League Opening

    Now entering its 26th year, Mendoza Baseball is a hobbyist site run by volunteers dedicated to developing the most realistic Major League Baseball franchise ownership game possible. If you've been successful at traditional fantasy games and are looking for a new challenge, this could be the game for you. If you wish fielding was directly values, this could be the game for you. If you wish service time was part of your dynasty league, this could be the game for you.

    There are several different leagues with openings. You can browse available teams at Rules are available here:

    Mendoza is a sabermetric dynasty format that is designed to emulate the economics, strategies and transaction rules of MLB as closely as possible, warts and all. The scoring is based on an intricate but intuitive system where player values are calibrated to be similar to advanced metrics like Value Over Replacement Player. Mendoza has everything you would want in a challenging fantasy format, including:

    * E-Bay style free agent auctions
    * Active rosters, 40-man major league rosters.
    * Options required to leave the active roster and remain on the 40-man
    * 20-man minor league rosters for players who have passed through assignment waivers
    * Unlimited minor league rosters for players with no service time . . . hoarding constrained by size of the minor league draft
    * Reserve clause and arbitration simulator
    * Multi-year contracts
    * Salary cap . . . trades can include cash considerations
    * A waiver system
    * Minor league draft
    * Designate relievers as closers (high leverage), setup, or long relief (low leverage)
    * Fielding affects results
    * A full-blown economic model with revenue sharing
    * Very deep leagues with dedicated owners that stick around for the whole year (and beyond)
