Compensation picks are due along with frozen rosters. Frozen rosters
are due along with any contract signings by 5:00 PM, EST. Please cut
out your team, delete all players being dropped, and to the right of
the contract label, indicate what is the player's new contract if he
was under 'b' contract the previous season. Player under 'a' (if
kept) can be ignored since he automatically goes to 'b' and 'c'
through 'g' players can be ignored since they automatically go to next

lists of draft rounds.
04/06: Round 1 bids are due and the results are sent out. When bidding on
players, it is easiest, if the bid is put to the RIGHT of the
player's position (if any). If the team is not bidding on any
player in any one of the rounds, then a message stating that should
be sent to the Commissioner. Otherwise, it is assumed that the team
is having computer problems and the draft gets delayed. Also, please
let the Commissioner know if somebody is omitted from any of the lists.

04/14: Reserve lists for players on DL/minors due.
If any of the team's players went on DL or were sent to minors
between the start of the draft and the current day, the team is
allowed to replace them under the following provisions. All players
that have been called up to the majors since opening day are
eligible. If a player replaced became inactive *BEFORE* Opening Day,
then the replacement player's stats will be retroactive to Opening
Day. If the player became inactive between Opening Day and first
Saturday after Opening Day, 5 PM EST, then replacement stats will start
counting only from that Sunday's game. If he became inactive after
that, then he will be handled in the following week's transactions.
