Was offered Alex Rios ($2) and Adrian Beltre ($18) for Fister ($12) and Headley ($5). Thoughts?

If Headley is the one most likely one to get Arb'd at the end of the season, your other valuable players are probably not going to be protected.

I'd have to see your team, honestly.

Just in case anyone checks this and not the Facebook page, Sandoval, Gallardo, Markakis and Fielder are on the block. No one is untouchable though

I would bet on you losing Markakis to arb regardless. I'd do it, it's only a $3 increase in salary and OF is a bigger need than SP.

This is my first year playing, so could someone give me a practical breakdown of how the offseason works?

This is my first year playing, so could someone give me a practical breakdown of how the offseason works?

When the season ends (October 3rd this year, I believe), salary increases are applied (last year it took a few days) and arbitration voting opens. Voting is open for about a month, and when it's over, the results are posted on the page. It gives you every player that got voted for, how many votes they got, and which teams voted for which players. At that point you can start cutting players without penalty, which lasts until the keeper deadline at the end of January. Last year, trades between the keeper deadline and the auction were not allowed, but Niv got a lot of complaints about that so he might lift that ban this year. Then you schedule the auction and wait until then to bid on players.

If I was going to Arb vote, it would either be for Holliday or Headley. If Headley gets voted off, you still get to keep a good priced Holliday. And vice versa.

I started it at $5, then bumped it up to $7 about an hour ago. So much for that.

Just so everyone is aware:

@ottoneu
This 60-day DL thing is a major pain. Do not cut any players, the 60-day DL should be restored shortly.
