We're just getting ready for the S8 Playoffs and we have 3 teams opening up in Season 9.

World Rules-

Win Floor: 55/125/190 

If an owner violates the anti-tanking rules, they may appeal. 
They can make their case to the world committee and state why they should be allowed to stay. The committee will then vote the fate of that owner, if allowed back you will still need to make the next win floor. 

Example: if you win 50 games in season 1 and are allowed back you will need to win 75 in season 2. 

A world committee will be set up by the commish. 
It will be made up of 4 owners, 2 from the AL and 2 from the NL. 
The committee will vote on rules violations as well as admission to the world if / when vacancies occur. In case of a voting tie, then the commish will cast the tie breaking vote. 
Each owner only gets one appeal, after that a violation results in expulsion from the world. 

If a committee member quits or gets kicked out, then the commish will appoint a replacement committee member. 
If the commish quits or gets kicked out, then the committee will appoint a new commish. 

All owners are expected to keep their minors stocked, to avoid fatigue problems. 
Above all the owners will be held to the WIS HBD fairplay rules. 

Budget limits: 

(Updated Season 5, 01/14/2013) 
Budget Violations will be dealt with as follows. If a team budgets lower than the minimum they must transfer that amount from Prospect Budget and their max for prospect budgeting will be that much less overall for that seasons. Example if a teams bugets 6M in ADV Scoting they must transfer 4M from prospect and their max prospect for that season would now be 26M. If a team does not have enough prospect $$ to transfer their may be a sanction on the foillowing season. The Commish reserves the right to immediatley expel an owner for violating this rule. 
(Updated Season 5, 01/14/2013) 

Payroll: 115 Max 
Prospect: 30 Max 
Prospect Payroll can NOT exceed 30 million. 
(Example, if you budget 20 million for Prospect Cash, then you can only transfer in up to another 10 million). 

Penalty - 
(Updated Season 5, 01/14/2013) 
The player or players that are signed by going over the cap will stay in Rookie league and inactive for one full seasons. The offending owner will be immediatley removed from the world for this rules violation. 
(Updated Season 5, 01/14/2013) 

HS/Col Scout: 10 Min Combined (you can go 0 in one if you go atleast 10 in the other) 
Adv Scout: 10 Min 
Medical: 10 Min 
Training: 10 Min 

Must use at least a 4 man rotation. Tandem Pitching staffs are allowed as long as the Tandem A is set to 60+ Target Pitch Count. 

Trades: If cash is included in a trade then the cash can NOT exceed the player salary going with it. (Example is player A makes 2 million...you can NOT trade 5 million and the player) 

R5 Draft: You must protect your players for the 40 man roster! 
Plenty of time to do so once budgets are set to protect your players for the Rule V Draft. There will be no "I had something come up, please take pity on me and trade me my player back." 

Stadiums: The following ballparks are banned from the league. Colorado, Santa Fe, Tuscon, San Jose, Burlington ,and Tacoma 
All cities will be set from day one and will never change through the life of the world. 

All team names must be listed in normal text. No Symbols, No all CAPS.
