If Third Day & BigLebowski don't nominate a player before Noon today one of the Mods will offer one up for them in their name right?

This isn't related to our draft or fantasy baseball in general but..

It's interesting that the player's union is trying to add two more games to the division series (which are currently at 5 games per series).

I won't post the article here, but here's a link to check it out (SN): http://www.sportingnews.com/mlb/article ... union-head

Either way, I hope to get Longoria for $10 or less... :^

TRADING PROPOSAL - CAFE Powered

Postby Silent Rob » Mon Dec 07, 2009 1:00 pm

I had a thought today on how we should go about, during the season, that we use this forum to do trades.
And I think we could use the 'auction' style posting which can give everyone a 3 day window to review the trade, post concerns and contribute any 'Nays' for a veto. The good thing that we are all here means our communication is much better than how Y! administers it. It opens the door for us to do more within a season than we ever could.

HOW IT WILL WORK: :-?
Reminder - This is only a proposal, I am officially looking to see if this might benefit our league this year. Keeping this good communication going throughout the season (without the restrictions of the Y! message boards/trading block etc..).


Trading Block Thread (pre-season/season) B-)
If we put forth a stickied thread here where managers can post a very comprehensive trading block for their team. Kind of how we have a "Roster" thread.

Working Out Deals ;-D
We would basically talk to each other privately (PM/Email) through the cafe, working on trades, and once we come to a consensus we would post the trade in the message board here (and also as a normal trade on Y!). The format below will explain how easy it would work, initially.

Discussion & Vetoing a Trade :-t
We can then have the commissioner (Boomer) put a 3 day evaluation period from exactly the post's timestamp.
The post will now become the area from which to discuss the trade, register a "Nay" if you want to veto the trade. If 7 managers vote "Nay" the trade is Vetoed (over 50% of 12 team league)**.
Commissioner Edit: Boomer would have to manually switch the players around OR we insist on making sure the players in the deal initiate a Y! version of their trade (if there is only two managers in the deal), and have trades be initiated by the commissioner once it passes the evaluation period.

Our Posting Format Could Look Like This:


Header
07/22 TRADE - Biglebowski/Silent Rob (posted 7/22 @ 1:03pm ET)

Body
Silent Rob Trades
Jose Reyes, SS, NYM & Ryan Howard, 1B, PHI

Biglebowski Trades
Mark Reynolds, 1B/3B, ARI & Nolan Ryan, RP/SP, BOS


Therefore we can have more flexibility during the pre-season/season for Multiple Team Trades to be possible. :-b :-D :-*
Example:

Header
07/21 TRADE - Biglebowski/Silent Rob/Scoreless (posted 7/21 @ 4:32pm ET)

Body
Silent Rob Trades
Jose Reyes, SS, NYM
Gets: Mark Reynolds

Biglebowski Trades
Mark Reynolds, 1B/3B, ARI
Gets: Chase Utley

Scoreless Trades
Chase Utley, 2B, PHI
Gets: Jose Reyes


--------------------------------
** In a 12 Team League, everyone has a vote. More than a 50% amount of "Nay" votes will constitute a Veto of a trade.

Geez SR, are you a lawyer? :-S
He who knows not and knows not he knows not: he is a fool - shun him. He who knows not and knows he knows not: he is simple - teach him. He who knows and knows not he knows: he is asleep - wake him. He who knows and knows he knows: he is wise - follow him
