They also added a new league setting this year that overrides the "ST probability rule" so players are only added to the leagues database when the players actually makes the major league roster. If this rule is enabled by the GM, Wieters, Hanson and Zimmerman were not available on draft day. At least its consistant
There are multiple threads here on the Cafe where I've addressed this subject. In particular, what you're saying here is not necessarily true. With the new league setting you've mentioned, we have more flexibility to add players when there is interest, whether or not they've been promoted. I don't know if I'd call it mysterious or random, but if the powers that be decide Strasburg is sufficiently interesting, he could show up mid-season. Leagues that are horrified by that idea could have chosen to use the new league setting.
And no, I don't know if and/or when he'd be added.
hey genie. thanks for all the time and effort.
im a commish of a plus league. im pretty sure i just imported the settings from last year. i dont remember choosing (i probably just forgot) an option on when to add to the player pool. is there any way customer support would change it for me? also, its a h2h league and the playoffs were set to none, which seemed wierd.
anyway, thanks for the help
