Been there and done that. Sorry, for the confusion. Thanks, for all your work.

Another possible option to ensure competiveness and no tanking would be that every team has to have a MLB player in all their active spots (8 fielders + rotations/bullpen).  There are plenty of players available to do this (even DL guys would qualify).  Each MLB team has approximately 12 fielders so that leaves an excess of talent that can be played.  It will allow bad team for 'upset' weeks in addition to not being incapable of winning. 

Also, I think there needs to be a rule that you cannot have a minor league player in your lineup if you have MLB players down on the farm.

The Mets propose the league add a draft monitor. No picks should be made until the available player list is updated and teams are notified. Teams continue to draft out of turn and make asumptions about the skipped picks based on the last round before they are posted. Some of you must be using a sundial. It's making things uncompetitive. Teams pick knowing full well it is not their turn. Messages are left giving those before them permission to go ahead and re-draft them if they really want.It disuades those ahead of them from re-taking a player after they spoil the pick.

The Rules state the majors minimum is 400k and 450k on two different pages. I'd like to see this change to 500k minimum to limit confusion.

The rules also state that once the week is up for each position, no opening bids may be placed. I think we should allow position players to be bid on continuously after their week.

Hockeygoon/Brent are doing a great job. I am sure the job would be a lot easier if people actually made their picks.

Yeah, they are doing a great job even with all the skipped picks. But, I posted that over two weeks ago just as they joined the trade committee and smoothed things out.

Things would be a lot easier if you added a link to your free agents when there are three guys named Jesus Castillo on milb.com plus a request from the Commisioner and a rule is posted.

Free Agency Rules Proposal

1) Winning bids must stand for 48 hours to sign a player. 

2) A maximum of 6 winning bids are allowed at a time.

3) No modifying of bids is allowed. An edited bid is an invalid transaction.

4) A major league contract automatically trumps a minor league or minor league veterans contract regardless of the value.

5) Sufficient salary cap room must be available prior to making a bid on a player. Money acquired through trade cannot be used until after the trade has been approved with a passing vote from the trade committee.

6) The minors Prospect Contract minimum PC bid is $50k. The initial raise on an opening bid must be doubled. Raises thereafter must be a minimum of $50k until the contract reaches $5m wherein contract minimum raises are $200k.

7) The minors Veterans Contract minimum VC bid is $500k. The minimum raise of a VC bid is $100k.

8) The Majors Contract minimum bid is $400k. The minimum raise of a MC bid is $500k until the bid reaches $50m wherein minimum contract raises are $2m.

9) Free Agent subject titles should include the player's name, position and team if available. The body of the thread should include a link to the player at milb.com or baseball-reference.com to avoid confusion.

10) Any available player may be signed to a minor league contract.                               
Players with 0-2 years experience receive an unlimited Prospect Contract.
Players with 3-5 years experience receive a 2 year Prospect Contract.
Players with 6+ years of experience receive a 1 year Veterans Contract.

*Normal Arbitration rules apply if a player is placed on the 40 man roster.

(Intentionally circumventing the spirit of the rules may lead to suspension if deemed necessary by the league moderators)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I combined and condensed the General Free Agency Rules and the Bidding Guidelines. A rule has been added to prevent illegal bidding with insufficient funds. Owners should probably decide if they want the ability to retract contracts or if a suspension should be enforced for changing bids. The rule below has been removed.

5) No minor league player under the age of 23 may be offered a major league contract.

*Removing this rule will allow rebuilding teams to add top prospects to their expanded 40 man roster and let them develop rather than having established teams stockpile younger players for large signing bonuses.

ď5) No minor league player under the age of 23 may be offered a major league contract.Ē

I think that rule should stay.

I hear your concern about established contending teams getting more prospects but if they are a contending team, that very likely means they have less payroll space than a rebuilding team so I donít think the argument holds up.

What we donít want is rebuilding teams offering 19yo kids 5 year MLB contracts in the hope that maybe they contribute in year 4 or 5 before hitting FA as a 24yo when theyíre barely hitting the majors. That undermines the entire arbitration process and risks making the league less realistic.

Besides, I would argue that hurts rebuilding teams as getting a young player like that is way less useful long term than getting him on a PC bid. If a contending team decides to use their final 5M of cap space on a PC signing then thatís their choice, weighing present vs future winning. And if none of the rebuilding clubs want to outbid, well, the market dictates value.

I respect your opinion and I know you've been in the league longer than I have. I was thinking these prospects could end up playing or be traded. Owners could risk putting them on waivers too and contending teams regardless of payroll seem less likely to use a major league roster spot. Also, there are current MLB players under 23 and even more under 25.

The Accountstros aren't the best example but his roster had "multiple" players with low arbitration salaries. He stockpiled prospects and was active in free agency. He would trade for a plethora of high draft picks and continue the cycle.

If teams aren't trusted to sign prospects to the majors then they shouldn't be able to trade picks. I just gave up three for DEATHERAGE.

I'm still interested in whether teams think we should be able to retract bids. The current rules allow you to edit or overbid and disqualify yourself. This can hinder the bidding. I would also vote to get rid of the Veterans Contracts and just sign the guys to minor league contracts with an invite to Spring Training.

  • Daddy: Apparently the MLB has put forth the idea of reducing the number of minor-league teams by more than a quarter (42 teams would be cut in the reported proposal). Additionally, MLB's proposal would reduce the draft to 20 rounds, reduce the number of contracted players in each organization, and alter the structure -- with some affiliates moving up or down in level.
