Bush League Amateur Draft Rules Guide
« on: October 29, 2016, 09:50:00 PM »
Amateur Draft
The Bush League Entry Draft will last 10 rounds.  Teams are not required to make picks if they do not wish to make room in their minor league roster. Just let the commissioner know if you do not wish to make selections in the draft.  Your team will skipped until you notify the commissioner otherwise.  You may also be placed on auto draft if you wish, also by notifying the commissioner.

If a team is not present for the draft or is timed out they may provide a proxy pick.  If they do not, they will be auto selected the next best available player from the draft list.  This is for the first 3 rounds only.  After that they'll be skipped and will be able to make up their pick at any time, prior to the end of the draft.

Players who have been drafted and signed in the real life MLB First Year Player Draft from the preceeding July are the only players who are eligible for the Bush League entry draft.  A list of players ranked according to the Baseball America top 500 draft prospects will be provided prior to the draft.  Players not eligible for the draft will include: 
Unsigned players from the draft
International players
Undrafted Free Agents
Unprotected Prospects
These will be available during free agency.

Entry Draft Contracts
Players drafted in the BL entry draft will be given Prospect Contracts, (P-n/a), and can be placed on a teams minor league roster or 40 man roster. Drops or promotions must be made prior to selecting a player for the minor league roster. No team will be allowed to go over the roster limits at any time.

Draft Order:
Using the fantrax combined standings from the previous season (i.e. draft starting in Nov 2014 uses 2013 standings) in reverse order for those that did not make the playoffs. For teams that made the playoffs, in each successive round, the losing team with the worst regular season record would be the first team to pick, continuing through to the team with the best record in that round. The Bush League Champion will pick last and the runner up will pick 2nd to last.


Trades
Trading of draft picks is allowed in Bush League.  A team is allowed to trade draft picks during the draft prior to selecting the proposed traded picks.

Players selected in the draft are not allowed to be traded for 60 days.


A player traded from a team's minor league roster can be placed on the receiving team's minor league roster as long as space is available and the player still meets the league prospect requirements. The player will be assigned to the roster level he is currently at, unless otherwise requested.

1) Post your pick in the thread of the respective round.

2) Clock is 24 hours per pick.  If you know you will not be available, as a courtesy, see #4.

3) Once your pick is posted, as a courtesy, PM the next GM in line.

4) You may PM your pick to BHOWS or I before your time is up and we will post it for you.  You may make up your pick any time until the draft is over, if you miss a pick.

5) You may request to be skipped (not make a pick) or be placed on autodraft (next highest player on the Top 500).

  • Teddy: Want to know why you have issues getting new ownership? Questionable integrity.
    October 20, 2019, 05:32:10 PM
  • Teddy: This was allowed to pass [link] and its the only move the Chargers have even made.
    October 20, 2019, 05:33:19 PM
  • Teddy: Maybe I should trade Zeke and company to the Rams or Eagles or Bucs or Houston and not make another move.
    October 20, 2019, 05:34:27 PM
  • Teddy: Im new and my fresh eyes see there are problems here.
    October 20, 2019, 05:36:06 PM
  • blkhwkfn: Being a dynasty league I would rather have what the Chargers received but I’m just a Hockey guy
    October 20, 2019, 05:44:49 PM
  • Teddy: Can't see how it makes the Chargers better or more attractive to own.
    October 20, 2019, 06:13:38 PM
  • Teddy: Looking at the other trades it seems like a massive under sell.
    October 20, 2019, 06:14:25 PM
  • blkhwkfn: Is the charger team idle? No owner?
    October 20, 2019, 06:16:29 PM
  • jojowalkwalk: Ted how are you?
    October 20, 2019, 06:16:40 PM
  • Teddy: Profsl is a different kind of fantasy but if you reverse that trade the Chargers are legit right now. Could be division champs.
    October 20, 2019, 06:17:03 PM
  • jojowalkwalk: You ready for Eagles Cowboys?
    October 20, 2019, 06:17:24 PM
  • Teddy: Im ok Joe! Been busy.
    October 20, 2019, 06:17:42 PM
  • blkhwkfn: Point is if it’s owned then hard to question the vision of the owner.
    October 20, 2019, 06:17:49 PM
  • Teddy: E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles!!!!!!
    October 20, 2019, 06:18:25 PM
  • Brent: Chargers are led by a GM who is a long time GM and has a history of building teams in all sports.  He wanted to build a team withi his vision. That's the beauty of a league like this.  This isn't Yahoo or ESPN where names and current production matter.  Age, contract, cap space, draft picks, etc are all factored in.  Few trades get vetoed as we leave it to the GMs to run their respective teams.
    October 20, 2019, 06:18:43 PM
  • Brent: The Chargers have an active GM who has a vision and is building the team how he wants.  He's been questioned about what he gave to get Josh Allen, but he has defended it repeatedly here in chat.  It is difficult to get young cost controlled QBs so he made a move to get the guy he wanted.
    October 20, 2019, 06:20:15 PM
  • jojowalkwalk: True but I don;t undertand the move
    October 20, 2019, 08:18:41 PM
  • Brent: I was replying to Teddy who questioned the integrity of the league b/c of that trade.  I didn't know you had an issue with it.  We could go through all of the trades in this league and this site and nobody has trades that aren't questionable.

  • Teddy: I hope it is. Especially after being personally called out.
    Yesterday at 02:38:50 AM
  • Teddy: Is there a rule on how long you have to post contracts because I can use a punter
    Yesterday at 02:48:33 AM
  • Brent: You weren't pesonally called out.  You joined and hadn't been on the site in 3 weeks and never on Fantrax.
    Yesterday at 03:04:20 AM
  • Brent: I've reached out to WCE for roster moves.  He's usually very active, but hasn't been as much over the last couple days.
    Yesterday at 03:05:38 AM
  • blkhwkfn: I don’t have a punter, personally I think it’s silly to score a punter. Kind of like the leagues where you draft a coach and get points for the win.JMO
    Yesterday at 08:43:32 AM
  • Brent: This league is designed to be more realistic for players that impact the game.  Punters are scored as they would impacting a RL game.
    Yesterday at 08:48:14 AM
  • blkhwkfn: Ha you don’t have to defend it, it’s just my opinion. It’s a silly stat and as my protest I have no punter lol
