HARDBALL CENTRAL-This world was founded by the late Srauch. A few rules, to prevent tanking...
1) 200 loss rule: If you lose 200 games combined in 2 consecutive seasons, you will be reviewed. If it is deemed you are tanking, losing on purpose for draft picks, you're gone. If not, you are given one more season to increase your win total to 70 wins....This rule prevents people losing on purpose for picks and tanking a season.
2) $25 million Rule....You CANNOT under any circumstance go over $25 million in your prospect budget for the season. If you want to budget 20 million to start, then add 5 million later, fine. If you want to start smaller and increase to $25 million that is cool, but NEVER exceed the $25 million total for the season....this is in place so there isnt a monopoly on IFA's, bad budget tanking other categories to get prospect $$, and it also prevents out of control IFA bidding wars.
3) You can move cities, move your franchise, ONCE. If you want/need to relocate your franchise that is cool, but only one time. We dont need one owner moving every season. However, it is understood that you might need to move upon picking up a team, or move to match your franchise to its ballpark needs
