Really need some help on a rule please!

Postby Spitballs&Sandpaper » Thu Mar 31, 2011 11:54 am

We have a MILB keeper rule where we can keep 3 prospects, not on the roster. My question is Dominic Brown on the Phillies roster? He's placed on the DL and listed on the Phillies roster, does that mean he is on the team, not their Minor League team? Can anyone interpret the rules I posted below and help me determine if D Brown should be a MILB keeper or if he's fair game?

Here are the rules for our league concerning this and I'm not sure, so if anyone can help clarify this I would be really grateful!


MiLB Roster:

Any player that is rookie eligible or on a MiLB roster is eligible to be on your MiLB roster. A player is rookie eligible if:
A player shall be considered a rookie unless, during a previous season or seasons, he has (a) exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues; or (b) accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the period of 25-player limit (excluding time in the military service and time on the disabled list).
You may never exceed 10 players on your MiLB roster.

MiLB Draft rules:

The MiLB draft will be on June 9th (the day after the conclusion of the real MLB draft). The draft will be done here on the message boards. Each team will have 8 hours to get in there pick. The draft will last three rounds.

You can only draft players that are rookie eligible or players currently on a MiLB roster. International players, college players and high school players will NOT be eligible to draft.

If a player is picked during our MiLB draft and the MLB team (who drafted the player in real life) does not sign that player, the team will receives a compensatory selection in the following year's MiLB Draft one pick after the slot of the player who did not sign. Call ups/Send downs and Trades:

You can call up one of your prospects when they are added to the 25 man roster or if they are called up when rosters expand. However, you do not have to call up your prospects when the team does.

When calling up/sending down a player, please post a response on the message board to alert a LM.

You can only send a prospect down if he gets sent down to a minor league team.

MiLB players can be traded like any MLB player. However, a team may not go below the MiLB keeper minimum (the number of keepers for next year). This does not affect calling up a prospect. If a trade would put a team below the keeper minimum or above the maximum number of MiLB players allowed on a roster, the trade will automatically be vetoed by a LM.

Keepers

We will have 5 MiLB keepers. This number will be consistent from year to year.

If these are your rules, Domonic Brown is fair game. He's eligible under the section on the top where you define your mILB rosters and you don't have a specific excpetion for players on the 40-man roster. The only mention is of the team's 25-man roster which Brown is definitely not starting on. And even then, the way I read your rules you could still put someone there like Brandon Belt. The bolded is pretty clear. If they are rookie eligible, they can be on the roster. Brown is rookie eligible as he did not pass the at bats or active days necessary to lose his rookie status according to the MLB.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
