Assuming you may want to be a participant instead of the person who runs it:

The advantage of running a team in the online world is you get to manage your team against other human GMs vs running the team against the computer.

Once you have found a league(s) you wish to join, contact the commish of the league and they will add you as a human manager in the game and send you a link to a league file which you will save in your OOTP saved games folder.

Then you boot up the game, open/load the league file and you will see a list of the human GM names that are in that league. Select yours and enter your password (assuming the commish has given you one, or you can add one later if it doesn't ask for one). From there you can only manipulate your team which is basically doing everything you do to your team in solo play. Once that is done you can click on a button called FTP export your lineup which uploads to the league server.

The commish before simming imports all of the human team exports and runs a set number of games. Then he uploads a new league file which you can update in the game under your team manager screen a button which says "update your game file" or something along those lines.

It is probably easier than I described.

For trades, I believe you would have to do that outside of game by emailing GMs or PMing them and when a deal is in place, the commish I believe has to manually input it for both of you.

Clear as mud?

So, in an online league, there is no way to in-game manage your team? And I assume there is no head to head feature in OOTP online leagues ?

Correct on the first question.

Correct on the second but OOTP has never had H2H play so I'm wondering why you'd expect that in an online league?

So much for personality. Albert Belle, a complete nut job was never traded and was the highest paid player in the game, twice!

I came from Strategic Baseball Simulator (SBS) a free simulator. It still is a really great Sim. But even in that program, there is no head to head games. The HOME manager can play the game live as a perk of being the HOME TEAM...the visiting manager submits their lineups and rotation and also gets to set several of the "AI" manager settings before the game starts.

Dave Kotch Sports has a Sim Baseball game I have never tried but I read that you could indeed play head to head in that sim.

I guess with OOTP it is a question that needs to be asked if you don't know.
