Agents vs GMs
« on: October 16, 2018, 12:55:25 PM »
I am looking at resurrecting the Agents vs GMs concept.  The concept is that the auction style bidding system is replaced with negotiations between a player acting as a GM on behalf of a team and a player acting as an agent on behalf of the player.  There will be a GM winner based on a H2H league format with an Agent winner based on the success of signing his players to lucrative deals.

I am still working on the details, but here are some of the details, so far:
  • Free league
  • 30 team H2H league
  • Flexibility in # of agencies
  • Contracts that reflect MLB including options & no trade clause - if you can negotiate it...
  • 35 man MILB
  • Snag a favorite veteran player on a Minor league contract and catch lightning in a bottle!
  • Negotiate your favorite players contracts starting in arbitration...can you keep him happy?
If you would be interested in this concept, post your interest here.  Go ahead and include the following:

Agent or GM
What are you willing to assist with (i.e. spreadsheet or transactions, etc.)
Preference of MLB teams or your own team names
Preference of static or variable payroll cap

Also check out this discussion link for interesting rules and include your own, some of these may be incorporated...

I'm all up for this. This league goes into a different way of playing in a league. U can either control the players by negotiating the players contracts or being that one great gm and trying to build that team by negotiating and bholding that winning team for your franchise

Negotiations should be the best choice.

What's more needed at this point, Agents or GMs?

  • kidd5jersey: It's stupid.  The players should go on strike.  It's fairly obvious collusion is occuring.
    Today at 11:45:29 AM
  • indiansnation: Owners have the right to spend their money how they want
    Today at 11:47:04 AM
  • kidd5jersey: Well, it's stupid that everyone defends the owners
    Today at 11:48:16 AM
  • indiansnation: Owners are tired of giving in to players demands. No player is worth 30m
    Today at 11:48:17 AM
  • indiansnation: Just saying.
    Today at 11:48:37 AM
  • indiansnation: Way its going how high is to high for a player 40m yr 50myr thatscrazy
    Today at 11:49:36 AM
  • indiansnation: Come on its going to crippel baseball
    Today at 11:50:05 AM
  • kidd5jersey: The Ricketts bought the Cubs for $900M in 09'.  Now, the Cubs are valued at $2.7B
    Today at 11:50:28 AM
  • kidd5jersey: It will not cripple baseball.
    Today at 11:50:44 AM
  • indiansnation: I see in 2022 baseball going to stop this overpaying of players
    Today at 11:51:00 AM
  • indiansnation: Yankees ,Boston,lad going to get a cap where they can't keep on trying to buy a championship
    Today at 11:51:51 AM
  • kidd5jersey: These owners are nothing like us.  The Cubs made a ton of money last year
    Today at 11:52:34 AM
  • indiansnation: Like hockey have it set example 200m. Once u reach that u are cut off from spending
    Today at 11:52:50 AM
  • kidd5jersey: It's not the Yankees, Cubs, Dodgers, BoSox fault that teams like the Orioles are too cheap to pay their talent
    Today at 11:53:16 AM
  • indiansnation: Really cubs cut off spending this yr.
    Today at 11:53:31 AM
  • kidd5jersey: A hard cap is bad for the players. The owners don't have to spend a dime.  Look what the Astros did five, ten years ago
    Today at 11:54:02 AM
  • indiansnation: No its not that its that those teams can't just go spend 30 to 40m on one player
    Today at 11:54:35 AM
  • kidd5jersey: The Astros were the most profitable franchise in sports despite being the worst by W-L
    Today at 11:54:35 AM
  • kidd5jersey: Yes they absolutely can spend $30M on one guy.
    Today at 11:55:18 AM
  • kidd5jersey: Take your place of employment.... Is it right to pay a manager $50K while WM understaffs, cheaps out on raises, and typically does not offer benefits while the shareholders make cash hand over fist?
    Today at 12:01:02 PM
  • kidd5jersey: If Harper and Machado don't have huge deals by opening day, I think the players should go on strike
    Today at 12:03:01 PM
  • indiansnation: Ok here u go cubs say owner said he would spend 200m this yr he is already has spent 160m. U could use another so,of and a back up catcher. Would u risk that 40m on one player or go after your 3 needs? U go after Harper he tears his knee. Can't play baseball for 2 yrs. U are know stuck paying 40m on a player u don't even have forv2 yrs. Its the money
    Today at 12:06:56 PM
  • indiansnation: Sp
    Today at 12:07:18 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Are the Cubs better with Harper? Yes.  Does signing him limit what they can do?  No.
    Today at 12:09:33 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Look at Tampa Bay... do you think attendance would rise with Harper?  How about Machado in Miami?
    Today at 12:10:27 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Teams like the Yankees etc. have built a brand.  Those lower teams have to do the same.
    Today at 12:11:25 PM
  • indiansnation: There is a hard cap thresh hold where teams foot pay a penalty for going over that would take cubs past second one which would cost cubs 50m in. Fees they pay for signing him to a 30m yr contract. Look at Boston they are already past that 2nd thresh hold and have to pay 1 1/2 times what they over spent I believe its 36m on top of what the payroll is
    Today at 12:13:26 PM
  • indiansnation: U can only do that for so long
    Today at 12:14:04 PM
  • indiansnation: Yankees are already paying loans out already to cover this yr.
    Today at 12:14:45 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Cubs have not been in the tax.  There are plenty of teams with money
    Today at 12:15:26 PM
  • kidd5jersey: You do realize Hamels, Zobrist, Kintzler come off the books after this year?  That's $40M dude.
    Today at 12:16:03 PM
  • indiansnation: Are u going to spend 100+ on one ticket to go see cubs play? Spend another 20 to go park your your car in a lot. Spend 30 easy for food? Sorry I like baseball but I can't afford that
    Today at 12:16:45 PM
  • indiansnation: Still they pay that penalty because they are over
    Today at 12:17:27 PM
  • kidd5jersey: I had season tix come in this year
    Today at 12:20:39 PM
  • kidd5jersey: We're splitting tix probably four ways
    Today at 12:20:49 PM
  • kidd5jersey: The overage is like $2M penalty or something
    Today at 12:22:00 PM
  • kidd5jersey: Point is.... let's say all players make $1M.  Do you think owners will drop prices?  Hell no.
