International FA Signing Suggestion
« on: July 03, 2019, 12:02:05 PM »
Guys, since the international FA's are on a first come first serve basis with max bids, can we set a time in future signing periods when it opens.  That way we can all race to start the thread first? Lets say the signing period officially opens at 3pm, or something like that.  It seems like its an unfair advantage for people who are always on the site versus people that may only check in once a day or so.  Just a suggestion.

Thanks Papps, I have updated International Free Agency in league rules. The signing period for Major League teams is from July 2, 2019 to June 15, 2020. Here is link from Baseball America: https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/2019-mlb-international-signing-preview/

Have updated league calendar.

Reminder, each team has maximum $5m for signing International Free Agents.

Additionally, i've been searching thru the archives and can't find the exact rule on the prospect bonus pool $.  Are we able to carry over any unused funds from one year to the next?

If not, I'd like to put that up for a rule change in the off season.

The International Free Agent Signing rule is here:  http://www.profsl.com/smf/index.php?topic=94792.0
It should state that it is now a combined $10m bonus with regular free agency which is allocated on July 1st of each year.  I think the unused funds are rolled over but not sure.

  • indiansnation: Wow mlb and milb is getting very ugly. Milb is know getting government involved. Know mlb is saying that after 2020 they will look else where at any and all leagues out their. Including independence leagues as affiliates to mlb.

  • Mets Donations Accepted: Bernie Sanders will settle it lol
    Today at 06:59:55 PM
  • indiansnation: Mlb wants milb to help pay milb players salary and fix up their own teams stadiums.
    Today at 07:00:18 PM
  • indiansnation: Mlb wants less affiliates
    Today at 07:00:31 PM
  • indiansnation: Badicky only want single and up affiluates and get rid of the rest of them
    Today at 07:01:13 PM
  • indiansnation: Mlb
    Today at 07:01:33 PM
  • indiansnation: Get rid of 40 milb baseball leagues

  • Yeagg: I support what the MLB is trying to do but I'm a nerdy fan. For the casual fan it will give the MLB a bad look
    Today at 07:02:39 PM
  • Yeagg: They need to tread carefully
    Today at 07:02:49 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I think theyre ready to dump it all and create they're own Milb system
    Today at 07:06:15 PM
  • Yeagg: That is what they want but it will be a huge PR hit
    Today at 07:07:17 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I'm not sure they care.  It seems they only care about the $
    Today at 07:11:31 PM
  • indiansnation: Milb has said that if mlb wants to do this then it will affect not just low minors it will affect all minor league teams from 3a down and mlb wont have any where to place their minir league players.
    Today at 07:13:08 PM
  • indiansnation: Milb will lock out all drafted players from useing any minor league affiliate
    Today at 07:14:01 PM
  • indiansnation: Mlb also wants to cut draft down to 20 rounds.
    Today at 07:14:33 PM
  • Yeagg: The MLB does not NEED the MiLB or their facility's. The MiLB really has no negotiating leverage aside from the PR hit
    Today at 07:14:40 PM
  • indiansnation: Im rooting for minor league. Mlb getting to BooYah! greaty
    Today at 07:15:34 PM
  • indiansnation: Where will minir league players go?
    Today at 07:16:07 PM
  • Vik: PM if you in Armchair
    Today at 07:18:38 PM
  • indiansnation: Ok if mlb break up and go 20 round draft where are the 600+ drafted players go?
    Today at 07:18:58 PM
  • indiansnation: Not enough independent leagues to cover all those players
    Today at 07:19:37 PM
  • indiansnation: Plus their isnt enough stadiums to hold all mlb rookie players
    Today at 07:20:23 PM
  • indiansnation: So mlb has to watch how far they go it could hurt them really bad.
    Today at 07:21:08 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: If they are not contracted with Milb, how fast will those towns defect to whatever MLB Pres together?  The first 60 become the new minor leagues and the rest are out in the cold
    Today at 07:27:04 PM
  • indiansnation: Vik pm
    Today at 07:28:19 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I agree though.  Manfred thinks it's pace of play that hurts the game, it's the fact that you can't go to the ball park and watch your favorite player, because he just signed with NY or LA.  eventually that is going to translate into tv $
    Today at 07:29:41 PM
  • indiansnation: Actually i believe all the minors are affected from 3a down. If milb are united that can be trouble for mlb.
    Today at 07:29:50 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: It all really won't matter when MLB a ten team league fed by the AAAA teams in locations like Cleveland and KC
    Today at 07:31:05 PM
  • indiansnation: If i was comish of milb i would get a hold of all idependent leagues and make their own league and screw over mlb. If u look at it its cheaper to go see a minor league team then mlb team.
    Today at 07:37:14 PM
  • indiansnation: They raise their prices a little bit milb could make it on their own.
    Today at 07:38:04 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I don't think they could
    Today at 08:23:47 PM
  • Yeagg: That would never be possible Brain. The MLB holds all the rights to the players.
    Today at 09:23:13 PM
  • Yeagg: The MiLB teams have zero controll over the players
    Today at 09:23:28 PM
  • Yeagg: and without the players, there is no product for the MiLB to put on the field
    Today at 09:23:49 PM
  • indiansnation: U can put a league together easy. If mlb is cutting back minor affiluates it can only have so many players in mimors
    Today at 09:46:37 PM
  • indiansnation: Ok if mlb is struggeling to pay their minor league players and u cut draft down to 20 rd draft. Their will be a crap liad of players that milb can sign. Look at mlb last yr with vet players how many didnt get offers. U dont think those players wont go for milb if they get a good enough contract. Mlb can totaly screw them selves easy.
