Question on Salary Cap

I play with a salary cap in my solo league. I've never gone over it but now I have a situation where in Years 2 and 3 of a superstar's salary the team payroll will exceed the cap. What happens if things are left unchanged? Does the game not proceed until you take moves to get back under the cap? Do you lose a draft pick? When and what is the penalty incurred?

I'm guessing you set a hard cap in the league settings? What's going to happen is the game will not allow you to spend any more money on players until you are under the cap again. You can trade away players in a deal that lowers your team's salary, but you cannot add any or otherwise increase salary.

OK...thanks for that but what salary expenses (i.e., arbitration, incentive clauses, etc.) that will kick in? Or is the restriction just on free agents and players that would be traded for? Yes it is a hard cap.

The manual could be improved on this topic.

It affects signing free agents, extensions (which takes next year's totals into account), and making trades. It's possible to go over the cap with arbitration or backloading a contract (like you did). But once you're over, any direct transaction that would increase your payroll is blocked.

when i see that coming (salaries page in front office) i make sure to do somethign about it before that year.. never hamstring yourself.

i play with a 250m cap. when i see 230-250 in a future year's column, i know i have to do something before that year. unless the entire team is basically signed or an arbitration deal... but, you'll still have problems if you rely on signing injury replacements during the year... again, something you can do ahead of time too.

i'm trading someone the previous years before i get to that logjam. basically, whoever i have a fitting replacement for is a candidate... then amongst those age relative to position where it matters.

again, requires forethought. i was acquiring those replacements when that player was 25-26 ish or a bit older in some cases. enough time to develop before trade-veto capability. if i trae someone 2-3 years ealry, no big deal, i avoid all the problems all the time and can always make 1 of many choices to fix that future problem...

when you have multiple options, you tend to have a better future..

Funny...I approach it the same way. Basically it means I trade away high-performing players in mid-career and acquire rookies or under who have the same potential but need to have a year or two to finish their development. My rosters the last three seasons have not had a player 30 years or older.

I also used to rely more on the draft but it looks like that's been hammered in OOTP19 in that not enough 4-5 star players are available even after just the 5th or 6th pick.

Thanks to everyone for their answers!

yeah, everything i do as far as player procurement is for 3-5-even 7 years in future if it's a 17/18 year old prospect.

if i am replacing a current outgoing player with what i get in return, i have thoroughly screwed up, lol. at this point i don't even need a 1-2 year FA filler ever. it's like clockwork with enough redundancies to avoid a prospect blowout or two. i also don't think twice about minor loss of talent... if the incoming guy is great, but not better, that's okay. (i have a high threshold for what stays on my team -- what i mean is i don't split hairs between a 30year old and a 23yearold with slightly reduced talent, becuase they are cheaper and allow for a greater amount of total talent onthe field at one time)

<30 is a great team! i usually have a few >30... especially knuckleballer.. they are great until 35-37 before any major reduction to ability is relevant.

but yeah, i trade between 28-32, more often i 30-32 if i can swing it. all depends on how many i have bunched up at a certain age.

e.g i currently have the bulk of my batting order 28-31 right now. so, the last couple years i've traded 1 player a bit earlier than normal to avoid the obvious cluster%$# in ~3 years if i try to replace 5-6 players in 1 or 2 years... vs. 1 or 2 each year ahead of time.

this stuff is never a surprise.. .you can see it coming for years... financial problems and dire needs at a certain position are 100% self-inflicted. even the example above with a cluster of similar aged players...i am procuring players for that bulk.. i let the opportunites available dictate which are the early replacements....

if all goes as planned the repalcement is read 2-3 years before end of contract and or veto power. that's plenty of leeway to avoid all problems. the worst problem i encounter is getting a comp pick instead of trading for better prospects. rarely do they take that long to develope.. even if they don't meet their potential, they are still ikely very good or good enough.
