1. Yes

2. I think we should modify the rule. Prospects, players drafted, players on prospect contracts, and those signed below a predetermined salary (ex. $6m per year or less) should be allowed to be traded freely.

I think we are worried about things that probably won't happen, but even if it does happen the team that eats all that salary will be hurting itself in the future and the team that acquired said player will probably give up a ton in talent to get them.  Also, remember we have a trade committee that can look over all of these trades.

I think we should separate this one of and discuss it on its own because it is the most debated.

3. I am a small market team so I'd like to say yea, but no. You make your bed you sleep in it.

4. Nope nope nope

5. Switch to innings limit  :win:

6. I personally don't care. I'll go with majority.

7. I don't understand, explain further.

2.  I would be in favor of a rule change that preserves the current 6/1 trade limitation on players signed in the off-season and early season, but does away with it after that.  I'd also be in favor of dropping the trade limitation for drafted and signed prospects.  I think both those changes would bring the league more in line with the MLB.

5.  I'm not for the rule change as written, but I think we should probably think about how the rule works and what it is intended to address.  We saw the real world Rays use and "opener" in a  number of games this year, with a RP getting a start but only pitching one inning, or the Brewers pull Wade Miley after one batter, to get a certain batting order set by the opponent, and then start him again the next game.  If this type of pitcher handling is a trend that will continue or grow in popularity, that really isn't the spirit of the games started limit.  We might be better off dropping the starts limit and stick with an innings pitched limit.

1. Yes

2. Yes, agree with Greg's recommendations on rule modification.

3. $1M or less may be too high, consider a lower number.

4. No, after playoffs is okay. 

5. Move to a innings limit and away from games started.  If a team gets a RP who is used as an opener during the week, it could wipe our quite a few of that teams games started limit.  Openers also seem like a new trend that has caught on.
6.  No

7. Yes, but if I player comes up as a DH and only DHs, then he should only be UT eligible.  This probably only affects a few older playes who don't play the field anymore.
