College Player/Minors

Postby colt4523 » Thu Mar 26, 2009 7:38 pm

Would a college player be considered in the minors. I ask this question because one of the owners in my league drafted Strasburg. My league allows for one minor league spot and I feel that it is bs that he drafted him. He is not available on CBS but you can right in any name you want....opinions?

Not a minor leaguer.

However, that doesn't mean much in fantasy baseball. Do your rules specifically exclude college players, or specifically state that they must be a "minor leaguer"?

He is not a minor leaguer and is still an amateur. Once drafted, he would then become a professional. Also, CBS cannot list him due to NCAA regulations (the same reason NCAA College Football doesn't give players names). Unless this league lets you draft everyone ala Darvish (Japan) and Aoki (Japan) then he is not eligible and your commish is wrong and over-extending his power.

he shouldn't be considered a minor leaguer because he is in college, has no team affiliation. if you can draft college players just use this knowledge to your advantage- while i'm not big on this years draft players outside of straus- i would consider drafting dustin ackley, kyle gibson, donovan tate- high school,
