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
* 40-man major league rosters and 20-man minor league rosters
* Reserve clause and arbitration simulator
* Multi-year contracts
* A waiver system
* Designate relievers as closers (high leverage), setup, or long relief (low leverage)
* A full-blown economic model with revenue sharing
* Very deep leagues with dedicated owners that stick around for the whole year (and beyond)

Now entering its ninth 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.
