Expansion

When is the best time to expand your league?
Right after the Playoffs end or after arbitration?

Thanks for your input!

I was just thinking the same thing... When u first start the game u would start March 21st but i was thinking about fast siming the first season and then after the first season putting in my two new clubs. my only thing is when does the playoffs/world series usually when that way i can expand my league and gives me enough time to scout players and expansion draft and such to get my MLB, AAA, AA, A, S A, and rookie club enough roster players before each clubs regualr season begins.

I'm going to have to go with day 1 of the offseason. Allows the teams to sign free-agents and you are able to adjust settings, schedules etc.

I always expand the day day of Free Agency. I have seen teams protect players that they had no chance at resigning then lose them in FA and lose several good prospects because they protected some 38 yr old FA to be.

That's what I had decided on and I hope it works out for me. Thanks for your input!

It should be a little bit before winter meetings start.

also going through the player search is there a way to just have it so that only the free agents come up instead of players that play in the league.

You can use a filter, or you can just go to League Transactions > Free Agents.
