I am in support of just an innings pitched limit.  I'd also be in favor of raising that limit to 70 IP.  We all know that pitching isn't as valuable as hitters in this league so I think that maybe bumping it up a few innings might make pitchers a little more valuable.

I agree with Papps on both counts.  Remove to starts limit and raise the IP limit to 70.

Somewhat skews the value of draft picks, but everyone has their own plan and values assets differently.

Pelicans receive:
Ingram $6,5 (2020)
Prince $3 (2020)
2nd round pick Houston 2019

Houston receive:
Randle $8,9 (2020)

Houston agrees. We lost 2 young players who will be RFA next year and especially Ingram who seems to start making interesting numbers at his 21 years old. Also a 2nd round pick of this year that Brent ask me to include.
For them I take Randle who had a very nice season and I hope that he keeps it going in New York. I take only one year of Randle but the only reason is to fight this year.

Thanks Brent!

Pelicans agree.  In an effort to get more control over the roster, the I decided to move on from Randle.  I'm really high on guys getting away from bad situations and that is what BI is going by leaving the toxicity of Lebron and moving down to NOLA.  I believe he will realize his potential and I won't take a dropoff from Randle to BI.  The other pieces are Lagniape.  Thanks for the negotiations.

2020 1st rd pick

Pelicans agree.  I hadn't planned on moving Blake as his contract is awesome, but anytime I tried to include him in a deal there was always a "he's only controlled for for 3 years". I decided that the picks can get me players that are controlled for much longer and will also be affordable.  Thanks for the negotiations Brian.

The idea of even cap across the board was to eliminate teams having an advantage. When you're paying salary on a player that is still using your cap.

Some players salaries are unmovable without paying on them. Deals already can't be sweetened by including draft picks.

I'm open to all ideas, I'm very partial to allowing cash paid for just one season. The season of the trade only.

Doing this won't eliminate a team from having say 70m paid in one season but then the following season(s) they are on the hook for those contracts likely needing to pay on them themselves in order to move them.  Advantage nullified by the disadvantage of planning beyond the trade year.

The real MLB allows cash exchanges. Eliminating it altogether may not be the way to go but not allowing anything beyond the trade year is easier to keep track of and still keeps in play the strategy of same cap.

I like this option, current year (trade year) only.

I played in a sim basketball league years ago that followed the NBA CBA so salaries had to match, it was interesting.

I'm in an offsite league that doesn't allow money paid.  There are still a lot of trades.  The buyout rules before the trade deadline are more favorable which helps to deal with bad contracts.

  • Yeagg: The rule needs to change. We should either be allowed to trade bonus money, or any non J2 guy is first come first serve during the season, or if you post any non J2 guy with a $1m bonus, for example, he should automatically be yours

  • WestCoastExpress: Brian you just moved 2 lottery picks to get rid of cap. Now you want to take on cap? Given your spending I would save all your cap for FA! There are a ton of good players for you to snag. Don’t take on more bad salary man, you’ll just end up having to dump it again lol

  • Daddy: In todays news...FaceApp, the viral photo editing app that can make you look old or swap your gender using artificial intelligence, saw a resurgence in popularity this week. But many were quick to take issue with the Russian company's vague terms of use, which quickly resulted in privacy concerns.
    Yesterday at 03:48:53 PM
  • Daddy: Whenever we share personal data or photos with an app, there's always the question of how much privacy we're sacrificing by sharing information with third parties in exchange for compelling services or features. Such concerns peaked this week as interest around FaceApp, the viral app that uses artificial intelligence to apply realistic filters and effects to photos, once again flared up following its 2017 debut.
