Page-a-Day Date-of-Birth Progressive
 
The history of the game of baseball has been well documented on a year-to-year basis, and a majority of progressive leagues replay this baseball history one or two years at a time. I wanted to break out of this year-to-year style, and provide a look at the game and its players from a different perspective. I also wanted a league that would have longevity and would make owners have to manage their rosters, make trades and have the feel that you never really knew who could be coming in the next draft. Essentially to run a progressive where the year you were currently playing didn’t dictate the initial draft pool or the future pools of rookies.

The Page-a-Day Progressive is based around the birthdates of the players we will be selecting for the league. 
When signing up for the league, each owner will select a date (Month and Day) that is important to you (your birthdate, a family member’s birthdate, your anniversary, the date of your first MLB game, etc.) and a home ballpark for your team (dates and ballparks are exclusive). 

The dates provided upon signup will be the basis for the initial draft pool, as I will use Baseball-Reference.com’s “Birthdays” Tool
http://www.baseball-reference.com/friv/birthdays.cgi to add all players who are in the WIS database born on each date submitted to the initial player pool. I will select my date and park last to give other owners their choice of dates and stadiums.

Initial Draft Rules
  • I will base the Initial draft order on a random draw from www.random.org.
  • The initial draft will go in a snake pattern (1-20; 20-1) with 14 rounds as shown below, so the complete draft will be in less than 3 weeks. 
  •       Round 1: 1-20 @ 1 player per pick
  •       Round 2: 20-1 @ 1 player per pick
  •       Round 3: 1-20 @ 1 player per pick
  •       Round 4: 20-1 @ 1 player per pick
  •       Round 5: 1-20 @ 1 player per pick
  •       Round 6: 20-1 @ 2 players per pick
  •       Round 7: 1-20 @ 2 players per pick
  •       Round 8: 20-1 @ 2 players per pick
  •       Round 9: 1-20 @ 2 players per pick
  •       Round 10: 20-1 @ 2 players per pick
  •       Round 11: 1-20 @ 2 players per pick
  •       Round 12: 20-1 @ 2 players per pick
  •       Round 13: 1-20 @ 3 players per pick
  •       Round 14: 20-1 @ 3 players per pick
  • If an owner misses his pick, I will select a makeup pick for their team 6 hours after their missed timeslot so their team does not negatively suffer. 
  • Owners may not trade draft picks during the initial draft, though you may trade players selected prior to the season starting. 
  • All players selected in the initial draft pool will start with either their WIS rookie season, their second or third WIS season (their owner will choose prior to entering their team)Players will then progress one calendar year at a time from this initial point until they retire from the WIS database (See DL Section below for info on players who skip seasons in the database).
  • Players not selected in the initial draft will progress 1 year from their rookie season and be included in the year 2 draft.

Subsequent Rookie Draft Rules
  • At the All-Star Game point of the season, I will use www.random.org to select 3 random dates in order to generate the rookie draft pool for the following season. 
  • I will use Baseball-Reference.com’s “Birthday” Tool http://www.baseball-reference.com/friv/birthdays.cgi to add all players who are in the WIS database born on the 3 dates selected. These players will start with their WIS rookie season.
  • Each season’s rookie draft order will be based on my anti-tanking formula (see post below) which rewards owners for winning and hurts those who win few games with a high salary. 
  • Owners must cut players prior to the draft in order to use their picks.
  • Cut players will be placed into the rookie draft pool. 
  • Once the rookie draft is over, any rookies not selected will progress 1 year and be included in the next year’s draft. All non-rookie players (carryovers from the previous season or cut players) will be removed from the draft pool and retired from the league.

Other Rules
  • Schedule – WIS Alternate Schedule F (162-game schedule with interleague play.): 20 teams - 4 divisions. 2 division winners from each league will play in the LCS with the winners playing in the World Series.
  • Home Stadiums – Selected upon signing up for the league. If an owner wishes to change their home stadium, they can petition the commish to do so, and if approved, will forfeit a 2nd round draft pick in the upcoming draft.
  • Alignment – Prior to the original draft, divisions will be based on the dates you select when signing up for the league, with the closest to January 01 being in the NL East, and the closest to December 31 going in the AL West. These divisions will remain for the duration of the league.
  • Team Names – Use your home ballpark city/state/region or ballpark name in your team name. Please no vulgar names…
  • Roster Size – 25 man standard roster (must cut prior to the draft in order to make picks).  
  • Minimum PAs/IP – Each team must have a minimum of 1,000 IPs and 4,000 PAs at the beginning of the season or suffer a 4 spot draft penalty in each round.
  • Dates – All initial dates and those chosen for a draft will be blacklisted permanently for the league.
  • AAA – To prevent fatigue and to allow owners to fill holes, each team is required to manually draft the 5 players listed below for their AAA.
  • Salary Cap – None…but I expect the league average salary will be around $60-$75 mil.
  • Clones – None - Each player is exclusive to each owner, and can only be used once on your roster.
  • Trades – Encouraged. Trading of draft picks limited to next season only. Trading of cash and AAA players is prohibited.
  • DH – No
  • Waiver Wire – No
  • Live Play – Limited to next series
  • DL – If you own a player who does not have a WIS eligible season after being drafted, you can place him on the DL to retain his rights. There is no limit to the number of players you may carry on the DL. Once your player has a WIS eligible season again, you must place him back on your roster or cut him. Players who run up against the end of the WIS database (I.E. a 2010 player and WIS has yet to release their 2011 season) can be retained on the DL until their next eligible season is posted by WIS.
  • Rules Changes – I never said the league would be perfect, so all owners in the league may petition the commish to make rules changes during the offseason. Rule changes put to a vote will require 11 of 20 owners votes to pass.
Manual AAA Players – Each owner must select the following 5 AAA players.
 
Hitters – 804 PAs $2,404,611
Buelow, Fritz 1904 Detroit Tigers 306 PAs .141 .204 .176 $1,150,207 C+/B/C+ -- -- -- -- --

Draft Formula
The draft order is based on "Adjusted Wins".
Adjusted wins = The average of actual wins + expected wins +/- the standard deviation from expected wins (+ if below; - if above) where Expected Wins = 81*(average team salary/league average salary).

Basically, you take all of the team's salaries at the beginning of the year, and figure out the league average salary and utilize this to find Expected Wins for each team at the beginning of the season. This becomes the baseline target wins for each team, and is a good measure of how many games they should win based on salary. EW can change during the season if a team's salary changes (I take the average of their beginning salary and ending salary).

At the end of the season, if the team is below their EW, then you add the standard deviation that they are from their EW to the average of their actual wins and EW to determine their adjusted wins.

If they are above their EW, then you subtract the standard deviation that they are from their EW to the average of their actual wins and EW to determine their adjusted wins.

Once you have each team's adjusted wins, then you rank them 1-20. Teams that over perform vs. their EW will get a slight bonus in the fact that their adjusted wins will be lower than their actual wins, while teams that underperform vs. their EW will get hit because their adjusted wins will be higher than their actual wins. Teams that tank (high salary, few wins) get hammered by the formula as their EW (based on their salary) will be much higher than that of a low salaried team, and their standard deviation number will be huge if they do not get close to their EW.
 
I will use this formula for rounds 1-2. Rounds 3-end will be based on actual wins (average salary will be the tiebreaker).

I am looking for a committed group of owners who will stick with the league for long time.  WIth the initial 20 days removed in the original draft, we will have 115 subsequent rookie drafts @ 3 days per draft, so you can see that this league has the potential to go for a long while.  I would appreciate it if you planned to be in the league for at least 10+ seasons when you sign up.

Thanks in advance, and I'd be happy to answer any questions via smail or in this forum if you have any.

ITS REALLY INTERESTING WILL THERE REALLY BE ENOUGH PLAYERS ??
Good question ronblood...the data leads me to say absolutely.

So far in the 3 days that have been submitted for the league, there are 120 draftable players in the player pool, or 40 per team.  Of all the days I've researched, the fewest WIS players on a given day so far has been 28, with the average number of players per day being 38.1 per day.  That means we'll have more than enough for the initial draft and roughly 5-6 rounds to draft from for each rookie draft.  In addition, the average of HOF/All Stars per day is 4.23, so each draft would have quite a bit of talent in it.

While this will certainly not be a high cap ($120+ million) league, we will have enough players and should see a very realistic league similar in players/salaries to a single season progressive.  I estimate the league average salary will be between $70 and $80 million.
3/10/2011 6:23 PM
I just ran the numbers on all players in the WIS database.  There are 6,538 unique hitters and 5,447 unique pitchers for a total of 11,985 players in the database.  When you devide that by 365 days, you get 32.836 players per day.  Plus, as each MLB season is completed, the number of players available will only increase.

This means we'll definitely have enough players for each team for the initial draft and subsequent rookie drafts (we will have close to 100 players per draft).  Couple that with the extra PAs and IP from the manually drafted AAA players, and fatigue should not be a major issue in the league.
3/14/2011 5:55 PM
To ensure we get all players in the league, I've decided to add leap day February 29 as an extra bonus day to the draft pool.  Welcome P Ed Appleton, P Bill Long, OF Terrence Long, 3B/OF Pepper Martin, 3B/SS Ralph Miller, P Steve Mingori and 3B Al Rosen to the league.  Sign up today and one of these guys could be yours.

I'm still reasearching dates, but have decided to take the Astrodome as my home park.
3/20/2011 11:32 AM
frazzman80:  I would love to play, hope you get some more traction.

Didn't like the list of players on my birthday, so I generated a random page, and in honor of Chuck Cottier, I will take January 18th as my date.  Glad I don't have to compete exclusively with these guys -- but I hope I get to draft Curt Flood!
