2013 Free Agent Auction

March 3rd - 23rd


The 2013 Free Agent Auction begins tonight at 8pm ET! The auction will be conducted via a Google Docs spreadsheet featuring the top free agent batters and pitchers.

Once the auction begins, no names may be added to the list. Rosters are locked and no players may be dropped until the auction ends. If you have a player who is DL eligible, you may move the player to your DL. Trades may still be conducted provided neither team exceeds the salary cap.

This evening owners will receive invites to edit the spreadsheet and the auction officially will be underway. If you have problems logging into the document, please review "Logging In" below or email the commissioner.

Notes: Bids lock once they have been in place for five minutes. High bids may not be reduced or removed.

Owners will receive daily emails showing all players receiving bids and the time remaining in their auctions. The commissioner will also email "outbid notices" as time permits, but please do not rely on these updates and keep a routine check on the auction proceedings. The emails will end once the owner has depleted his cash or filled his roster slots.

Auction Rules:
-Bids must be placed in your team’s column only
-The spreadsheet must not be altered in any way other than by bidding
-High bids that stand for five minutes are locked and may not be reduced or removed
-All bids are time stamped
-Bids must be placed in $1 increments
-Bids may be emailed to the Commissioner
-Bids submitted via email will be posted using the time received in the Commissioner’s Inbox
-Bidding ends when a high bid has stood for 48 hours
-Owners must not exceed the “$$ Available,” “Maximum Bid” or “Open Roster Slots”
-Owners are not required to fill all roster vacancies, but the “Maximum Bid” must not be exceeded

Notes on the spreadsheet:
-The player list is composed of batters and pitchers based on ESPN’s “Cheat Sheet.” The dollar value assigned to the player is ESPN’s “Cheat Sheet” price and not a required opening bid
Owner $$ Available: The total cash available to spend during the auction
Maximum Bid: The highest bid an owner may place on a single player (May not be exceeded)
Open Roster Slots: The maximum number of players an owner may bid on (May not be exceeded)
-There are four tabs..."Auction," "Bid Status." "Rosters," and "Formulas"
-Owners will use only the "Auction" tab when placing bids (Place bids under your team column)
-The "Bid Status" tab will show the time remaining before a player is sold (Updated by Commish)
-The "Rosters" shows your team rosters and cash balances (Updated by Commish)
-"Formulas" (Updated by Commish)
-Please bid whole numbers (Ex: 1, not 1.01)

Chat: There is a cool little chat box on the right side of the spreadsheet. To access it, click on the small colored squares that appear in the upper right corner when collaborators are online. It will open a chat window on the right side of the spreadsheet and you enter chat by typing in the box at the bottom .

Logging In: When joining the the spreadsheet as a collaborator, please use the invitation link you receive via email. If you have problems logging in, it's probably one of two issues...

-You did not use the invitation link
-Your login information (email address) does not match the email address entered by the commissioner. If this happens, please forward me the email address you are using to access the spreadsheet

Invites go out tonight! Enjoy the auction. Welcome to the 2013 Legends League Season gentlemen!
