The Talkin' Baseball league is a fairly standard, single season progressive: Alternate WIS Format F (4 divisions, 5 teams in each. Division winners make playoffs. Each series best of seven). No DH (league voted to not add DH in future). No live play. Unlimited IR. No salary cap. 6/2 below average AAA players, randomly generated (6 bats, 2 arms). Trading of draft picks allowed up to one season in advance. We have an add/drop period after each draft.
A three-tier lotto system to determine next season's first round draft order after 120 games. 6 worst teams get put in lotto for picks 1 through 6 in next season's draft. Next 7 worst teams get put in a lotto for picks 7 through 13. And the 7 teams with the best record after 120 into the season are put in a lotto for picks 14-20. Lotto is for the first round of the draft only. Subsequent rounds are worst team to best team, based on record at 120 games into the current season.
We have some additional cool features in this league. You have the ability to shuffle players up and down from AAA virtually all season (deadline is before game 160 of the season). Typically not a lot of down time between seasons. We also have a league record book that is updated each season and we just started a Hall of Fame for the league!
Important: We attempt to keep things moving at a semi-brisk pace. We start drafting off the clock not too long after the 120 game mark at a leisurely pace. Once the playoffs start, we draft on the clock and pick up wherever we are in the draft at that point. We attempt to keep down time to a minimum between seasons, as we usually finish the draft around the same time that the World Series is finishing up. So keep in mind when considering our league that we move faster than the typical progressive, which may suit you very well or not so well.
