Rule clarification anyone? Can players who are still under the rookie threshold be added without using a farm add on them?

Anyone else have a good feeling we could have a whole lot of parity this year? I'm pretty excited.

I think so. Lots of 6-4, 5-5 scores the first two weeks.

5.10 Andrelton Simmons, SS, Atl


Doesn't look like my last pick was added to the spreadsheet. Is it possible to get that on there?

Thanks!

Done. ;D

Send me your email and I'll make you an editor of the spreadsheet.

Do you guys really allow "streaming" pitchers?

As of now, there's no rule against it. If I recall correctly, there's been a decent amount of discussion about trying to prevent it (adding a moves limit is one idea that's been mentioned), but nothing has been put into place yet.

I was mislead; this is a glorified Yahoo Public League. Sorry but you need to find a new owner.

I wouldn't bail so quickly. I sure don't mind adding some constraints to stop overt streaming. I stream pitching occasionally, but honestly, during the regular season and due to the depth of our rosters, it bites me in the butt more often than helps me. The playoffs are the main reason to add some constraints, IMO. Streaming is a big issue then.

Since adding a limit to the number of moves during the season wouldn't be a fair option at this point, how about we add a limit to the number of weekly moves which Yahoo now allows? The only downside to this is farm movement, since Yahoo doesn't support farm teams, but 3-4 moves per week should allow enough farm movement plus allow pickups when necessary.

Also, this would probably only significantly affect one league member [ahem]. The rest of you guys wouldn't even notice the difference.

Thoughts?
