Eh....technically it's when the draft is over, which was D's last pick. So...whatever. I'm not in the mood to argue with anyone.

I won't make a deal of it (you know, because prospects are irrelevant), but this is just hokey.

Did you want one of those guys?

Well, if we were all gonna fill our 4th prospect slot on a first come, first serve basis (which this actually is not because you posted the final pick of the draft simultaneously, knowing it'd automatically get you the prospects you wanted), then I would have attempted to get one of those guys, yes.

Who were you gonna drop?

I love the assumption that I was trying to cheat the system btw. I just picked my guys. I figured everyone else had theirs filled.

But **** it. I'll just prove that prospects are irrelevant ... again.

4th prospect spot was to be filled in the draft. D just dropped some of his guys that he saved immediately after. It's not exactly the same thing.

I think several people failed to do that then.

The prospect aspect of this league is confusing as ****.

But really... if you think that, then drop all your minor leaguers. Put your money where your mouth is. :naughty:

We're just allowed to add/drop minor leaguers now? Uhh ..

It's always been like that as long as no other team has them.

I'm sorry Xio. You should take it over and make it better.

During the season, yes. This just seems like a loophole. Especially because D got the last pick of the draft and posted his final pick along with changing his minor league roster.

Draft results haven't even been entered. The new season hasn't begun.

But don't mistake this as me complaining. I'm just pointing it out.

Nah, I'd rather keep it fair. Drop them all and let the league have a pinnata party!

I have no idea if this is meant sarcastically, but no, I don't want that.

First order of business would be a total restart.

I do think D has ulterior motives most of the time but in this case I don't think so.

Fiiiine. To make it fair... I won't make my add/drop until 9PM Hawaii time.

That's 3AM for you SUCKA!!!! :point:

He got a future RP anyway, who cares.

It's not an ulterior motive. He just capitalized on being last.

My gripe was only against the lack of something preventing him from doing it. Didn't we have a separate prospect draft in the past? (Things change so often I can't keep it straight).

Or maybe we should have bid on prospects with that money we have for new additions to the player pool.

Well this is only my 2nd year and last year was the same thing. Pick up minor leaguers whenever you damn choose. If we keep the prospects we all have now and then change and codify those rules that would be fine with me.

Again, I'm not complaining. I don't care. Just thought I'd point it out. Maybe it can be improved if this league continues beyond this year.

Out of curiosity, what is the current free agent/waiver priority based on?

As best I can tell, it's random to start the season.

Normally it's based on the standings, but yes, as best I can tell they just randomize it before the season starts.

Does that mean you're gonna leave it?

My league was the inverse of the draft order, for instance.

Right, but in your league it's not self-correcting. As soon as the season starts and points are accumulated, the order will immediately switch. It's a non-issue.

Oh. I guess I never realized it was reflective of the standings each week. Every league I've ever been based on most recent claim.

Johnny Giavotella was sent to the minors today. I would like to put him in my prospects team in place of Francisco Martinez, please.

Sure thing, but in the future lets direct all discussion to the stickied thread at the top. I only made this for the draft.

Oh, right. We should close this one if it serves no purpose anymore.

The competitiveness of the league is solid, so unless we're going to make massive changes, I think 8 is a good number for a league like this.
