Hello everyone. I want to first apologize for posting a "fantasy want ad" on the forum. If you thought this was something else, just letting you know up front. However, the Baseball Nation Simulation League (BNSL) is looking for applicants for a vacancy (Detroit Tigers) as well as new additions to our waiting list.
The BNSL is a 30 team, baseball simulation league. We use the Diamond Mind Baseball software (version 10) developed by Tom Tippett, the Director of Baseball Information Services for the Boston Red Sox. Our league is a projection based league using Dan Szymborski’s ZiPS projection system which can be found on Baseball Think Factory, ESPN, and Fangraphs. Our season mirrors MLB and the bylaws are an ever evolving, group effort to improve on the MLB model. A few additional details about our setup:
- Player salaries
- $150m salary cap
- 25% revenue sharing
- 80-man roster limits (2400 players total)
- Active (25-man) and 40-man rosters
- Player options
- 8 round Rule 4 draft (could expand to 10 rounds soon)
- 3 round Rule 5 draft
- 3 tier FA process
- Realistic waiver system
You can check out the BNSL bylaws for our complete rules and you can view the Tigers roster and current performance this season.
If you are interested, please send us an e-mail at email@example.com as soon as possible so we can discuss how you can apply for the vacant Detroit Tigers organization.
