Bonus Points - New to 2002

TOP

For the first time, bonus points will be awarded to teams whose hitters or pitchers perform rare feats opposite their specialties. So, pitchers on your pitching roster will be awarded bonus points for rare hitting feats and hitters on your hitting roster will be awarded bonus points for rare pitching feats. (Note: You cannot put Mike Hampton on your hitting roster since his specialty is giving up home runs, not hitting them!)

Disabled List Trades - Updated 09/25/02
This year, owners will be allowed to make up to two (2) 15- or 60-day disabled list (DL) trades. You can only trade players that have gone on the official Major League Baseball Disabled List or players that, within two weeks of the end of the regular season, have been designated as "out for season." A DL trade is in effect one day after you notify Pedregoso Rios (by e-mail only) with a copy to Rube Furrow. DL trades are not retroactive to the date the player went on the Disabled List or was designated as "out for season.". You will receive the "to date" stats of the player that you trade and the remaining season stats of the player you trade for.

30- or 60-Day Disabled List Trade Fees - Updated 09/25/02
.
15-day DL Trade = $15
. 60-day DL Trade = $10
. Out-for-Season Trade = $10


The Rube Clause

TOP
The Rube Clause can be summarized thusly: What Commissioner Rube Furrow says, goes. That means that, despite our best efforts to rule fairly, give payouts justly, and make sure league owners are happy campers, Commissioner Rube Furrow's word is the final word when it comes to any disputes, complaints, statistical anomalies, and payouts.

*Subject to change. Void where prohibited.
