True Neutral Baseball League has an opening before our 10th season

Welcome to the True Neutral Baseball League!

Here's our basic information:

OOTP Version: OOTP 19
Players: Fictional
# Of Teams: 24 (1 league, balanced schedule)
Exports Days: Sunday through Thursday, 9:00PM Eastern
League Time Per Sim: 7 days
Current Season: April of 2039 (Just started 12th season)
DH: Yes
Communication: Slack
Live sims? 1-2 times a week (rest of the sims are offline).

Who we are and what we’re looking for

The True Neutral Baseball League is based on a single defining principle: Neutrality. If you've ever played in a league that was unbalanced or unfair from market-to-market, that's not the case in this league. Market sizes are equal. Park factors are equal. The DH is standardized. Media Revenue is equal. You get the idea.

We are going into our 10th season and have reached a point of stability with a core group of GMs. However, we are looking to fill our opening(s) with GMs who are seeking an especially active league. We value activity on Slack and availability for trade discussions moreso than export percentage. If that sounds like you, then we’re interested.

Website and Podcast

Over the last couple seasons, our members have begun creating content off the league. On TNBLGraphs.com, we’re producing stories like top prospect lists, HOF prognostications, minor league system rankings and lot more.

We’ve also developed a podcast that discusses the league at length. It’s still relatively new, with three episodes being produced so far. Topics include trade deadline recap and playoff predictions. There are future plans for the podcast, including amateur draft analysis, hot stove talk, opening day predictions and other items.

League History

The TNBL is entering its 12th year. We’ve had multiple commissioners in our history but are currently led by Andrew, who owns the ever-rebuilding Durham Bulls. Our previous commissioner, Will, is still an active member of the league. Going into the 2037 season, this is as stable of a league as you’ll find.

As far as our history goes, there’s too much to say to fit in a paragraph. We have everything from one-hit wonders (Hee-Joon Joung) to all-time greats (Carlos Mateo) to living legends (Gan Bi) to up-and-comers still earning their stripes (Herman Ackland). We have tales of legends that once were (David Veloz) and about prospects who can see the light at the end of the tunnel (Ivan Vizcaino).

Every two seasons, we hold a tournament in the winter with the nations of the world. As of now, it’s a random draw for teams (by nation, not normal franchises) and is played similarly to the World Cup (pool play and then brackets). In the future, we will look into drafting permanent international teams for GMs to control.

We want you to come and learn more about our history, and this is a great time to do so. With 10 years comes the start of discussions about building a Hall of Fame for our most accomplished players. We’ll also be producing an “All-Decade” team before too long and we want as many active voices in those discussions as possible.

Current openings

Seattle Mariners -- This is a great opening. Seattle won the world series two seasons ago and has one of the best pitching staffs in the league, a top-10 farm system, and an above average offense.

This is our final season of OOTP 19 before we transition to OOTP 20.

Other info

We use Slack for communication and we have Slack linked with Stats+. No forums, no emails chains.

Rules can be found here

Highly Recommend

I've been fortunate to be part of some amazing OOTP online leagues and TNBL is definitely a gold standard. If you are looking for frequent live sims, a consistent sim schedule, highly engaged GMs and fun content contributions through podcast and website articles then this is the league for you.

We have an opening!

Portland Beavers — A rebuilding franchise that had a good GM leave suddenly. The farm system has some nice pieces and only $60M in guaranteed money on the books next season.

The trade deadline is a little over a week away (in real life) so there's time for a new GM to come in and make some moves.

If you have any questions or want the team, feel free to DM me or send an email to TNBL.OOTP@gmail.com.

We have an opening.

Toronto Huskies: Good franchise for a new GM to take over. One of the best young pitchers in the game (58 overall/78 potential at age 23) and 4 top-100 prospects. Only $45 million on the books for next year.

We are almost to the end of the 2037 regular season. We will be playing at least the 2038 campaign on OOTP 19 and then will explore switching to 20.

If you are interested in joining, DM me here or email TNBL.OOTP@gmail.com.

Portland Beavers — This is a really good situation. Arguably has best hitting and pitching prospects in the game as well as some good young pieces who are already in the majors. Also have a top 15 pick in our draft (starting this week) and just $43M on the books for next season.

We are sticking with OOTP 19 for this upcoming season and then will reevaluate before 2039 (roughly 2 months in real life).

Seattle is open again.

We are at Opening Day 2039, so not much has changed since my last update. Proud franchise who has 1 ring and a solid foundation. DM me or email TNBL.OOTP@gmail.com if interested. Feel free to include previous online OOTP experience if you have any.
