WHAT IS A FREE AGENT ??? Any player from the same season as your selected team from the opposite league is considered a free agent. (Example: your team is the 2002 Giants. Your free-agent window is 2002-American League players) All free agents signed are with a no-trade clause (they will be the only players that must stay on your roster for the whole season) and FREE AGENTS are not allowed to be TWISTED... Only one instance of a free agent player allowed in the league ... All free agents are first-come, first-serve. Signup for this league early and designate a free agent and you have that player's rights. If you decide later, while working on your team, that you don't want him, you can put him back on the market.
SPECIAL RULE FOR PARTIAL SEASON FREE-AGENTS: If a free-agent played with more than one team during a season, WE WILL ALLOW the full season to be used, ie. WIS database offers a 2010 version of Cliff Lee with Seattle Mariners and Philadelphia Phillies which means his full season can be used as a free-agent if your team is from the opposite league. Another example is the full-season of 2009 Matt Holiday with Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals as a free-agent.
IS THERE AN ALTERNATIVE TO NOT PICKING A FREE-AGENT ??? If you don't want to use a free-agent, you may leave one of your mandatory players off your roster. In addition, you must designate one of your three most expensive players and tag that player with a no-trade clause.
