Re: 2012 League trash talk and discussion

Postby mocs12 » Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:14 pm

I have something to throw out there for discussion:

To avoid any problems during the draft is it possible to go ahead and input the guys from our minor league rosters that we have to use draft picks on. For example, I have to use my pick in round 23 on Pineda. By putting him in that slot before the draft it eliminates the possibility of somebody accidentally picking him and causing a problem during the draft. Maybe it's not possible but thought it would be worth asking.
Thanks.

Agree. Or even go as far as giving Tobe your minor keepers and having him add them to your team now that way they count towards your draft picks and nobody accidentally grabs someone.

I haven't found a way around this yet. If you guys want to send me your minor league guys that you plan on calling up I can try to figure it out. Email me at mcgrady@ufl.edu.

So I gotta ask, has everyone chose which minor leaguers they are keeping this year? So the rest are fair game or what?

if they are on your team they are off limits to be drafted by anyone other than you. If you make the decision not to draft them they go into FA and people can use waivers to get them

;-D Hope that answers your question

I understand that but what I'm asking is like on my draft board for my team I already have Belt, Moustakas, and Freeman already drafted in my last rounds available but I still see some that arent like Hosmer and such so I was just wondering if everyone had picked who they wanted or if we still gotta wait till the end and get them through FA? Like you have Jennings already drafted so no one can draft him so I was just wondering if everyone had said who they were keeping or not.

Still wait to FA no matter what. I decided not to take Desmond you all would still have to wait and fight for him on the waiver wire

Is this the case? I thought the whole reason why Tobe was adding minor league keepers was to know who was kept and who wasn't. If a player is over their limit and not kept, then they can be drafted just like every other player. There is really no reason to have to keep track of all these guys and then get them off the FA list when they can be drafted.
