Scheduled GM Movement
« on: September 14, 2010, 11:00:46 AM »
We will be having three existing GMs take up positions with new franchises once both of the season has concluded for both their current team and new team.

:DET: -> :BOS:
Jeff Wren, who has done an amazing job for the Tigers this year will be taking his services to another high payroll team.  The Boston Red Sox have decided to hire him.  Wren is the Red Sox third GM since 2008.

:SF: -> :PHI:
Christopher Pappalardo, son of Philadelphia, is leaving his amazing pitching staff in San Francisco to take on his favorite team.  This is certainly a vertical move for the GM who has done a fair job in San Francisco.  He will be taking over a Phillies team with practically no farm but with another shot at the World Series even after this season.

:FL: -> :DET:
Hank Chang knows how to run a franchise in this league despite leading the Marlins to one of the worst records in the league after they made the playoffs in 2009.  He has much more money to work with in Detroit than he had with an ownership group in Miami that watched every nickel he tried to spend.

This leaves openings with the Marlins and Giants.  The Commissioner has agreed in principal with two new GMs.  An extended probation period will be used with these GMs where the league's front office will have to approve any drops they make during the draft.

Ernesto Quiroz (Flash) will be taking over the Giants front office.  He has given me perhaps the best reasons to be a GM in this league.  He has played in franchise leagues before and has years of fantasy baseball experience.  He has responded to several PMs over the past couple weeks and has been a lifelong Giants fan for 50 years. 

Samuel Molina (molinator) will be taking over the Marlins front office.  He is a fan of Florida teams, is related to another GM in the league (Omar :ARZ:), and has been around ProFSL for some time.

Surely a couple other positions are due to open up over the winter.  Existing GMs have a chance to take over new jobs if they like.  I am confident that these GM moves will further improve this league.

Welcome to the league Ernesto and Samuel.  FYI, the NL Central is the best division in this league.

The five GMs moving around will now be drafting for their new team.  That means that the current GMs of the Tigers, Marlins, and Giants will not be drafting for their current/old teams.  This simplifies everything and keeps one GM per team in the draft.  Each of you will be officially hired once the Tigers and/or Phillies are out of the playoffs.

  • Vik: That's good but what if someone has a proven top 20 plh
    Yesterday at 06:51:00 PM
  • Vik: Proven top 20 player and they bench him to start another active player but clearly way worse
    Yesterday at 06:52:35 PM
  • Vik: Ideally everyone wants to win each week and start lineup they thing is best. In this case there would be no problem, but it gets tricky if someone wants to tank and starts active but not best lineup
    Yesterday at 06:55:57 PM
  • Daddy: If it's active it's legal Vick. There are no tricks. If you have Brees and Trubisky and JP Losman than Mosman shouldn't be the one starting.
    Yesterday at 06:57:49 PM
  • Daddy: We gonna act like we don't know what the hell tanking is?
    Yesterday at 06:58:10 PM
  • Daddy: Tanking is when you got 2 RBs on NFL rosters and play the 2 on the practice squad each week.

  • jojowalkwalk: It means GM can tank if thet want, but they would be givimng up a 1st round pick. It's that simple
    Today at 12:44:51 AM
  • indiansnation: Here it is how many teams jyst teaded him their entire 2021 draft picks.
    Today at 12:45:46 AM
  • jojowalkwalk: I've explain the rule to the board. All but one agree
    Today at 12:45:56 AM
  • indiansnation: They are complaining he is tanking but he has probably 30+ draft picks in 2021 to build his team up.
    Today at 12:46:51 AM
  • jojowalkwalk: Rule will go in effect tomorrow
    Today at 12:46:56 AM
  • jojowalkwalk: But tanking will deprive spme team who needs a high draft pick
    Today at 12:48:05 AM
  • indiansnation: Thats bs
    Today at 12:48:11 AM
  • indiansnation: yhen i want no draft picks being yraded in a the league also.
    Today at 12:48:42 AM
  • jojowalkwalk: If he has thise picks, there is no reason to tank
    Today at 12:48:51 AM
  • jojowalkwalk: Not gonna happen. Again if he has those picks there is no need to tank. Him or anybody else
    Today at 12:49:55 AM
