Farm Roster:

  • Draft picks are allowed to be traded, but no supplemental picks will be given at the end of the draft for traded picks
  • Drafted players must meet MLB rookie eligibility and must be signed by an MLB team

In-Season Farm Pickups
  • Each owner has 5 MiLB 'pickups' that they may use during the current season. Pickups may be traded. [updated Oct. 2011 - Added that they may be traded]
  • Players must be added via the regular Yahoo add/drop procedures, i.e., they must be in the Yahoo database before they can be picked up (the Yahoo league setting for 'New Players Become Available' is 'Wait until called up to Majors').
  • Players must be rookie-eligible when they are picked up (< or = 130 AB; < or = 50 IP).
  • Pick ups must be announced after they are dropped (demoted), and before they clear waivers.
  • Example announcement: "Using my #2 pick, sending Strasburg to the farm"

Farm Movement
  • A farm player may be promoted as soon as he is available in the Yahoo database by adding him to your active roster and (if necessary) dropping or demoting another player.
  • A farm player can be demoted to an owner's farm by simply dropping him via Yahoo add/drop -- no announcement is necessary.
  • A farm player may be promoted and demoted for the entire season if he was on a farm roster to begin the season, or was acquired via an in-season farm pick.

(Need to revisit this prior to 2010 season since Yahoo is adding prospects to the database earlier than they did in the initial season. We may want to enforce only allowing players to be picked up after they have been promoted to their parent MLB team.)


Looks like there's an option to disable the picking up of these players until they officially get the call (noticed it in the rules of the experts' challenge league when I joined yesterday) ;-D


Yup. Probably something we need to discuss and vote on? Currently, they just have to be in Yahoo's db before they can be picked up.

Yeah, let's put up a poll and go with majority rule (I can tell you right now that I vote for wait til they get the call unless you drafted them) ;-D


I believe we already did an informal poll in our league chat thread, and we voted to disable pick ups until players are called up. Let's just go with this...

Restrict number of moves per week?

Postby Bwanna » Mon Apr 30, 2012 10:33 am

In order to limit streaming, but still allow farm movement, I propose we limit the number of acquisitions week to 3 or 4 starting after this week. Considering I make the most moves during the season anyway, this probably won't affect anyone but me.

Thoughts?
