    1966 Free Agent Auction

    --With the rookie draft winding down, if not actually finsished, I thought everyone would be interested in getting a look at who is available in free agency. The Premium Free Agent (PFA) portion of the draft will kick off at 8PM EST on Friday, July 13 (the supersitous amoung us may want to avoid offering mega-deals on that day ). I've pared the list down to players who ought to be worth bidding on to try and keep it a little shorter tyhan last years marathon. It will kick off promptly and I am going to try to push the pace as much as possible.
    --The PFA will auction these players in this order (based on 1965 salary);
    Frank Howard - somebody's cleanup hitter for the next 5 years
    Milt Pappas - decent rotation option
    Rocky Colavito - solid starter now, but age is catching up to him
    Bob Alllsion - injury problems this year, but still has some good years
    Johnny Callison - solid starter for the rest of the decade
    Jim Perry - very good pitcher, but underused in real life limiting his IP
    --That is all for the PFA. The secondary auction of all remaining free agents will commence immediately after the conclusion of the PFA and conclude at 9PM EST on Monday, July 16.
    --I'd like everyone to make sure their rosters/salaries are updated before the auction gets underway. Please post the number of players you have under contract and your total salary in this thread prior to that. No bids will be accepted from teams failing to provide updated salary data. Also, please remember you will need to reserve 250K per open slot on your roster to get to 40 men by Opening Day. Subtract that from the amount you have under the cap before figuring what you can afford to bid in the auction.
    --Three PFA remain on multi-year deals to their current club. If not traded before then, they will be on waivers from 8PM Thursday to 8PM Friday. If not claimed they will stay with their current club. Those players are Ken Boyer, Lou Johnson and Jerry Buchek

    Mark, I'm missing salary data for Willie Hortonand Mike McCormick. If someone could send that along, that would be great.

    --McCormick is on the last year of a 3 year/250K deal. Horton was a 1963 draftee, now making 1M.

    The Redbirds, after about 20 test sims, have determined that they are probably not going to be able to make a run this year as I'd hoped. The draft just didn't have anyone able to help this season. To that end, we have a few parts that could be useful to a contender. The price is draft picks or young talent.....

    Billy McCool-great lefty reliever, also solid next year, making 1M
    Clay Carroll-great RH reliever, solid in 68, 69 also, making 1M
    Bruce Howard-great starter for this year, OK next, making 1.5M
    Bob Bailey-very solid 3Bman, but falls off before next year, making 1.25M

    You know where to find me

    Can't say T.D. Dum isn't willing to spend:

    33 players / $96 mil

    That sure is too bad!!

    All kidding aside, it is too bad because JW sure made things interesting. But with all those low payrolls, I expect some big spending on Friday.

    Maybe the Legends can make up some ground this season!

    The Gold Sox claim Jerry Buchek.

    Provided this goes through, I will now be at 47.5M for 33 players.

    OK, I edited my roster/salary to reflect Buchek's being claimed off of waivers.

    And FYI, Dan, Buchek is in the second year of a 3 year free agent contract that pays 1.5 million per year. He'll become a free agent at the end of the 1967 season.

    No, you are right. In all of my copying/pasting, things got shuffled around, give me a second and I'll have the correct nubmers up.

    --Still need roster/salary data from the Stingers, Diablos, Cannons and Gamblers and the corrected number for the Pirates. This must be posted before a bid can be accepted from your team.

  23. #23
    The Stingers are at 31 players with a salary of 75.75 million. Hmm, I didn't think the cash bug would catch up so fast. Anyway, I have a question. What is the buyout rate at again? Half of what they would have made if they still played?

    --Half of the remaining value of their contract. Buyouts had to be exercised by the end of the non-tender period though. If you release someone now you take the full contract value as a cap hit.

  25. #25
    Well, I already released Jack Cullen who was due to get 5M this year. So I guess my final team payroll is 78.25 million for 31 players.
