    Default Franchise Dynasty League

    Select a MLB team and 25 players from that elected team's roster. We will then hold a fixed draft and select 15 players from MLB teams not represented in our league. The draft selections will be in the inverse order of the 2014 MLB standings. In addition, each team will select 10 minor players from within your selected team's minor league system. 5 additional prospects will be selected via a draft from teams not represented in our league,

    This dynasty league is limited to three years. At the conclusion of the third season we will redraw and start a new three year dynasty league. There is a $150.00 league fee, which covers all three years. Fantrax also charges a $4 per season fee for its premium league. This fee is paid at the beginning of each season. The league fee must be paid prior to the MLB draft to get a seat at the draft table. Payouts will be weighted towards the third year with goal of affording teams an opportunity to build their teams longer term. Payouts in each of the first two years will be $200, $150, $100 and $75 for first, second, third and fourth. The payouts for the third year will be $800, $600, $350 and $200 for first, second, third and fourth. All fees and payouts will be process through by an outside service (i.e. Leaguesafe or Sports Vault ) or “Fantrax Treasurer”.

    This league is a salary-based league with salaries based upon real MLB player salaries and a standard team payroll cap. The league will operate on Fantrax using a 6 X 6 + Team, Head to Head Multiple Win Categories. The scoring categories include for hitters: HR, Net Stolen Bases, RBI, R, Weighted OBA, and SLG, pitchers: IP, Net Saves + Holds, QS, K, ERA and WHIP and team: wins. The 40 player roster will include 25 active players and 15 reserves. The active player positions include C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, LF, CF, RF, OF (2), UT (2), SP (4), RP (5), P, and Team.

    The draft will be held online on Fantrax. Each team has up to 8 hours to make its selection. The draft will begin at 7:00 PM ET, Friday, February 27, 2015. The 5 round minor league draft will be held on a date to be determined after the MLB draft.

    There are still plenty of talented teams available; Mariners, Pirates, Angels, Orioles. Keep in mind under this format teams with strong minor league systems are a plus. Also, approximately 40% of your roster will be made of a players from the draft, so teams that provide a strong nucleus of players supplemented with players from the draft can potentially provide a winner. Finally, there is no requirement to maintain a certain number of players from the MLB namesake team. You can turn over the roster post draft, as you wish. (P.S. add the White Sox to the teams off the board). Thanks

    We will have a conventional draft based upon the 2014 MLB standings. So teams that finished lower in the 2014 standings will draft earlier. This will create more competitive balance int the league. Since approx. 40% of team roster will be populated from draft selections draft position is important. Finding a team that has a solid nuculeus of MLB players, a high draft position and a strong minor system will provide a competitive advantage.

    Six spots left. Teams available as of now include: Orioles, Yankees, Rays, Tigers, Royals, Twins, Angels, A's, White Sox, DBacks, Giants, Padres, Rockies, Brewers, Phillies and Braves.

    Does it have to be the Sox? Or could it be one of the other teams that are still available. Such as giants, padres, dbacks, or A's?
