Thread: 1981-82 Offseason Thread

  1. #151
    While most of your thinking is sound, the FA's I bid on even after being at 40, were for 1983 and beyond. After I realized 1982 would be lost to me, I used my extra cash to get help for 1983 and after. That made all players with contracts expiring after the 1982 season expendable. By cutting players with contracts expiring after 1982 I took the salary hit for ONLY 1982.
    There are 10 kinds of people. Those who get binary and those who don't.

    So... when the season starts and players can sign past 40, they can only hand out one year contracts now, is that right?

    Yes, no multi-year deals after the auction ends. Any roster filling or extra players will be just to get you through the current season. Have to shop earlier to land your future sleepers.

    Garry, you still can sign usefull players down the road for minimum wage. You just have to bid on them while the auction is still ongoing. What has worked well for me is bidding on these guys during the million dollar bidding phase once you've addressed your bigger needs and have an idea what spare roster spaces you'll have available. Very seldom is somebody going to bump your guy when it means an extra million.
    I understand the issue perfectly Mark. When I first started in the CKL I use to look up every single free agent player available at the start of a season hoping to find one or two who even though stunk the coming season had a above average season one or two years down the road then sign them to a multi-year contract to take advantage of that. That is what I meant by finding the "hidden gem" Obviously players can still be bid on and signed to multi year deals during the free agent auction. I took advantage of signing 6 players this season for the minimum by bidding on them late in the process figuring no one would be willing to bump their bid from 0.25 to 1.25

If you don't do your job, what they're paying you for, why should they pay you? You just can't put in eight hours, that's what a lot of people don't realize about athletes. Very few people realize the pressure." Dave Kingman

    Which is precisely why I was opposed to permitting the process of submitting a 250K player at 250K during the 500K and 1M phases, but that argument was shot down too. I think it's great when someone gets a relative "steal" in the auction, but I also think the player should have to be submitted at the going rate during the present phase. All those 250K gems would have to be submitted during the 250K phase. Maybe that would keep guys from submitting several players at 250K during the 1M phase ending up with more than 40 players. Just my two cents.
    You see, you spend a good deal of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time. J. Bouton

    for the record, this is another thing I (theoretically) support. the way I look at it is that a player has a bid on him of zero, and to raise that bid one should have to raise it by the minimum required in that round.

    the reason for the (theoretically) is that I usually don't have time to comb through every single player and know which ones I'm going to want at 250K at the very beginning of the auction and I think it might actually be better if the third-tier guys don't actually get bid on until teams are priced out of their primary targets. and if there's a guy with a good enough third year who doesn't get a bid until the 1M phase, I probably wouldn't have too many qualms about going 1.25M on him. it keeps roster flexibility open the way we have it now, and I think that's a good thing. so I don't actually support it, I just think that in theory it makes sense I guess.

    --I didn't do as good a job as I'd hoped for the Corsairs this offseason and their playoff chances don't look that great. I'm not throwing in the towel on the season, but for the right offer some guys only signed through this season could be available. Catcher Carlton Fisk, OF Steve Kemp, SP Dick Ruthven and RP Mike Proly are probably the most affordable/attractive to potential suitors. Players signed through 1983, such as LF Jim Rice and 3B Bill Madlock are also open for discussion.

    --Deadline for submitting profiles is set for tomorrow. Still waiting on 3 owners with 5 teams; Thunder, Tyrants, Beavers, Llamas and Gold Sox. If I get them before I run games I'll input, but I can't promise anything for teams not in by midnight EST tomorrow. Openign Day will be whenever convenient for me after that. Thanks
