2019 Prospect Bonus Pools
« on: June 20, 2019, 06:46:42 PM »
Prospect bonus pools will reset at 12:01am ET on July 1st.  Any signing bonus used to sign a player who is posted prior to that time will come out of the 2018 bonus pools, regardless of when the bid becomes final.  Signing bonuses for players posted after 12:01 will come out of the 2019 bonus pool.

Reminders
Each team will have the same $10m bonus pool.
Bonus pool money cannot be traded.
Salary cap space cannot be used to pay signing bonuses.
Prospects can still be signed to a PC contract with no signing bonus paid.

If we want to mimic the big leagues then we should be allowed to trade bonus pool money. Maybe put a cap on it like they do, but still allow us to trade it.

Trading bonus pool money is an administrative nightmare.

The bonus pool was put in place to give small market teams the same chance at signing a big time minor league/international free agent as the large market teams, so it wasn't to mirror the MLB, it was to create some equality.

I was glad to see this bonus pool was put in place when I returned to BL.  Also, since it is a prospect bonus and not an international player bonus, then it is already different than MLB and really a dynasty fantasy baseball feature that is needed in a league like this.

    October 17, 2019, 12:40:32 AM
  • Vik: I found new Hornets GM so back to full again in BOD
    October 17, 2019, 12:40:54 AM
  • Brent: Awesome.  I got someone to join and it looks like he is going to take the Broncos in NFLC.
    October 17, 2019, 12:48:18 AM
  • Brent: That would make the AFC West complete with 4 GMs.  NFC South has 4 GMs.  NFC West is 3/4, AFC South is 2/4, NFC East is 2/4, AFC East is 3/4 and NFC North is 3/4.
    October 17, 2019, 12:50:52 AM

  • Daddy: What would you give up for Ramsey @Brian?
    October 17, 2019, 01:49:51 AM
  • Daddy: Khalil Mack or Laremy Tunsel even? What is fair value in your opinion?
    October 17, 2019, 01:50:50 AM
  • Daddy: Would you trade Frank Ragnow & Noah Fant for Jalen Ramsey? (Be careful, ive seen a lot of your trades)
    October 17, 2019, 02:01:41 AM
  • Daddy: I ask because I see our picks somewhere between 20-32 and those 2 guys were drafted @ #20 in 2018 & 2019 respectively. Ramsey is imo the best at what he does. Are they?

  • Daddy: Doesnt matter who we get as manager if we dont get some Pitching.
    October 18, 2019, 12:48:51 AM
  • Daddy: Phillies can do better, so can the Flyers. It sucks when your team makes poor personnel moves and doesnt draft well.
    October 18, 2019, 12:50:52 AM
  • Daddy: 76ers process is the way to go. Ive got big hopes for them. The present and future.
    October 18, 2019, 12:51:58 AM
  • Daddy: My Rams also are a team built for present & future so im happy there as well, although we need to show improve

    October 18, 2019, 08:06:52 PM
  • 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.
    October 18, 2019, 09:54:11 PM
  • indiansnation: Trying to pay players in minors more noney and cut down the cost of it also. I think once these moves are done i can see mlb doing a baseball realinement for mlb teams also
