Losing players to "other" league

Postby 23 » Tue Mar 10, 2009 4:37 pm

Wondering how people in AL/NL-only leagues handle teams losing players to the other league? Are you SOL or do you allow for compensation? One GM in my league suggests being able to sign a free agent without releasing a player, but I'm not a fan of that. Just looking for how other leagues handle it.

During the year, our league's rules are that you are SOL. We do offer a compensatory draft pick in the following year's draft, though, based on where the player is ranked at the time of the trade.

AL Only I am in we continue to have the players stats but the NL only I do we lose them without compensation.

I dont think either is better..while I do like still having like Sabbathias stats when he went from Cle to Mil for example I enjoy that uneasiness and trading that comes around the MLB trade deadline when people are worried about league switching (and holding the waivers for the crossovers into waivers)

One idea ive always wanted to do is you have 2 leagues with the same people one AL only and NL only (one grand prize for best cumulative finish but seperate prizes for best AL team and best NL team) and if you lose a guy in one you have his rights in the other, over the other owners regardless of waiver position, I think thats the only time id want some type of compensation

Keep a player going to the other league's stats until you drop him.
