I'm not sure if there is the availability for 2 drafts so you can have a minor league draft. I've never held a ML draft so I really don't know how that works.
The ML slots are not counted towards your MLB roster---but you as commissioner have the option to set that one way or the other.
This year, CBS changed their "set lineup" page to a drag and drop function. It wasn't difficult last year (there were drop downs for each player) but the drag and drop may end up being a little quicker, I guess. Anyway---moving players in and out of your ML is pretty seamless. The roster would be color coded because the entire group of players will be together. The ML slots are green, so you can easily see who is not active/reserve versus the ones that are.
I've been petitioning CBS for 2 things: an option allowing daily scoring, but the other is a shut off switch per owner for ML slot usage.
They have shut offs per owner for other things like "posting polls, "posting news", "trading", "message board" so I figured it would be an easy fix and would allow the commissioner to have some control over what teams are doing in and out of ML Slots.
My league implemented a new "billing" rule this season for ML Slots. For each transaction you make moving a player in or out of the Minor League Slots you get "billed". If you reach the ceiling you can no longer make promotions/demotions. It's to prevent the ML slots from becoming just an extension of the reserve team. It also in a way mimics MLB where once a player is recalled or sent down so many times he cannot be recalled without passing through waivers first.
So this is why Im asking for that shut off switch for ML Slots.
