How to Post a Trade

Post by Eddie Paxil-Commish » Sat Jun 28, 2014 2:27 am

  • Trades will be done on the forum. There will be an area specifically for trades called, “Completed Trades.”. Both parties must list all elements of the trade. Simply posting, “confirmed,” will typically not be accepted. For Example:

  • First Post by Team A

    Team A Trades:

    Player A

    Player B

    1 million in Cash

    Team B Trades

    Player C

    Second Post by Team B

    Team A Trades:

    Player A

    Player B

    1 million in Cash

    Team B Trades

    Player C

    Confirmed

    An unofficial custom of posting the reasoning for the trade by the G developed over time. This is not a rule, but helpful.
  • Since trades are processed at the start of the sim you can also include any instructions for the commissioner. Like what lineups to put players in, depth chart placement, bullpen assignment, or rotation spot.

    The commissioner will then attempt the trade in the game. If the trade goes through financially he will simply post, “processed.” If the trade does not go through financially he will post why, and the parties will have to rework the trade. Teams in the red can only swap a matching amount of money OR lower their debt. Teams are allowed to use the retain salary feature added beginning with OOTP 18. Trading a player that has had salary already retained on him back to to the retaining team can make things a little kaka so that won’t be allowed.

    If there is a variance in the trade of less than the MLB minimum contract currently $500k the trade can go through. If the difference is $500k or more it must me reworked.
