The new Tout Wars constitution has been posted. The changes are few (and are highlighted in red).
Major League games played last year to qualify for a position has been lowered to 15 (from 20). The object is to open up some position flexibility, which is especially important in these days of expanding pitching staffs.
Tout Wars loves the Vickery FAAB system, but the feeling was that applying Vickery on the less contested players gave owners a nearly unlimited budget, as player after player was reduced to $1. This year, FAAB bids of 10 or fewer will not be adjusted for Vickery, while bids of more than 10 will be reduced to $10 if there isn’t a higher second bid.
FAAB reclaims, if a player goes on the 60 day DL, will be rounded down, rather than up.
There is clarification of what constitutes a legal contingent bid during FAAB.
And that’s about it.
