The Get a Cup of Coffee Before Reading Rule

from crickett13;

In order to maintain competitive balance and give each owner flexibility on how to run his team I propose the following.

Minimum wins over 2 seasons 110
If this is not reached the increase in wins between season 1 and 2 must have been 15 games or the team is put on 1 year probation.

Once a team is put on probation they must show a 15 win improvement to stay in the league.

Example 1
Scranton Breakers season 15 40 wins
Scranton Breakers season 16 48 wins
The Breakers must win 63 games in season 17 to stay in the league.
Scranton Breakers season 17 70 wins
Scranton stays in the league.

Example 2
Scranton Breakers season 15 43 wins
Scranton Breakers season 16 60 wins
Even though Scranton did not win 110 games they did show a 17 game improvement so they are not placed on probation.
Scranton Breakers season 17 45 wins
Because the 2 season win total for seasons 16 and 17 is only 105 games Scranton is placed on probation and must win 60 games in season 18 to stay in the league.

No team may be placed on probation 2 seasons in a row unless the Commissioners discretion rule is used

Commissioners discretion rule

If a team can show a reason why they just missed the win improvement the commissioner may waive the expulsion and place the team on probation for a second consecutive season. An example of this would be a team that wins 108 games in 2 seasons and then does not show a 15 game improvement the next season because their #1 starter and their closer both had season ending injuries early in the season.

Player Payroll: Each team must have 35 mil budgeted for payroll. No transfer may take place that would lower the Player payroll below 35 mil. If they choose to only spend 25 mil that is fine as long as the budgeted payroll does not drop below 35 mil.

Budget transfers: You may not transfer more than 20 million dollars in a season.

Claim to fame: 1,496 consecutive games played (Capra record)
Awards: All-Star (1, 4), Silver Slugger (4)

Almonte was an on-base machine, with 7 seasons of .400 OBP or better. That was also his career mark and he had 7 100-walk seasons. He also scored 92 or more runs each of the first 5 seasons of Capra, and hit 38 doubles in season 4. A forearm nerve injury ended his record games-played streak, particularly impressive considering he was a catcher.
