I don't think you can drop prospects from your squad to add another guy. The only way you can add a new prospect is if someone from your minor league roster was called up to the majors. That's how I understood the rules at least.

First of all, that doesn't make sense. If for some reason one of my minor leaguers never reaches the majors, I'm stuck with him forever? Secondly, Charm already dropped Juan Francisco in favor of Esmil Rogers. If the commissioner can do it, I assume it's ok.

You're right that didn't make sense. This was the last rule CCB put up.

This is all getting too complicated, You can add and drop prospects as you please but it will be done once a month and we will be using a waiver system.

I'm not sure what the waiver system is right now and when that time of the month is when we can switch minor leaguers.

Agreed. That was a little sneaky. There has to be a system for this. Otherwise it would just be a crazy race to see who could create a post saying I take him seconds after the real pick is made.

CCB, you get my PM about Lincoln and Tabata?

ccB
06-11-2010, 01:00 AM
Oh boy here we go...

I wasn't trying to be sneaky, I thought I made it clear, ANY played not on an ML roster could be added to your list. That goes for amateurs, to international talent. At any point anyone could of added or drafted Harper, or any other amateur player. So at this point, if anyone wanted to add someone like Yu Darvish, or even someone like Anthony Rendon they could, but if those players end up on an AL team, you'd have to release their rights, thats the risk involved in a move like this.

I had an open roster spot once Posey graduated to my ML roster, so I added Harper. I'm really not trying to exploit anything, or get over on anyone.

Just to prevent further confusion or future headaches:

You guys can add or drop anyone from your prospect lists at anytime, I thought at some point I made it clear that I wasn't implementing any of the rules I had tossed around before because it just became way too complicated, if this was not clear to anyone I sincerely apologize.

You guys can add ANY player who is NOT currently on a ML roster, if you want to try and gamble on any amateurs or international talent be my guest, I sincerely thought I made it clear, but if I didn't....again my apologies.

I really have the best of intentions with this guys, I am not trying to get over on anyone, I promise. If the Harper addition is a problem, I'll remove him and add someone else, I was debating on adding him anyway since he's probably 2+ years away from reaching the big leagues.

Also for now on, I will do all prospect additions on Sundays, I've had some stuff going on lately and I haven't been using NFLDC as frequently.

Hines, I'll have your team updated tonight, same with 619.

You guys decide with the Harper business because to be honest, I have some life changing things going on right now and I just don't have it in me to debate about this at present times. Whatever you guys decide, I'm fine with.

I really hope that all this prospect nonsense hasn't turned anyone off from the league, I really didn't expect it to be this complicated, I hope it can go more smoothly for you guys from here out.

Thanks for your patience guys.

Or you could consider just dumping the owners and putting their players in the draft pool. Our teams could use an infusion of talent. For me, there is less fun scouring the waiver wire for guys like Ross Gload and Paul Janish..

02-27-2011, 12:07 PM
RWO will take the 8th spot, he's gonna pick what team he wants then the other two team of players will go into the draft pool

ccB
02-28-2011, 12:00 PM
RWO is taking over TJ's team, 619 and GPNGC's teams will be added to the draft pool.

Everyone get your 12 keepers in (makes it easier if you post them here) plus your 3 minor league keepers. (also post here)

as soon as keepers are in we will do the draft, the order will be the reverse order of the standings from last year (worst record picks first, best record picks last, etc)

OK, so I guess this is it.

1. SP Aroldis Chapman
2. RP Craig Kimbel
3. SP James Taillon
4. OPEN

Then I'll draft a minor leaguer at some point in the draft. When the season starts, and Kimbrel is on the 40 man roster, then I'll call him up and decide if there is a minor leaguer worth picking up.

Can you remind me of the minor league pick up rules? Can we add/drop at any time?

right now they can only be added during the draft, after the draft it's first come first serve. I'll just need any minor league transactions announced in this thread.

Yeah... that would be me. Hines did a coin toss and took Ubaldo. I ended up with Greinke.

Where is RWO?

Same. He's a nice young player with upside.

He's in hitter hell at PETCO, but he could be good for 10-15 homers and 20-30 steals.

Where is the list of kept minor leaguers?

First page, but it isn't updated. I didn't even realize 2 of those teams were cut. Glad I realized it in time to get Shelby Miller though. I wouldn't have known if Jug didn't take Teaheran. RWO took over TJ's team. 619 and gnbcn (or whatever his name is) got cut from the league. So their minor leaguers are available.

I'm still mad at Jughead for taking Teheran.

Yeah but those lists still have players that weren't kept. We were only allowed to keep up to 3 minor leaguers. I'd like to know who was kept and who wasn't.

Scroll up. CCB posted something. It's not complete though.

So you have Kimbrel and Chapman on your major league roster right now and Taillon and Miller on your minor league roster?

That's correct.
