I'm all for a moves limit if we promise to call it the "Bwanna Rule" :-b, and 6-8 sounds
Iike a good happy medium for allowing spot starting and/or prospect calling up/sending down. I don't understand the sentiment/need for reducing it in the playoffs though. Other than not wanting to self police it, I think it's a needles stipulation. I say pick a reasonable number and stick with it. My $0.02 ;-)

I really don't like a limit for the whole season, because I fear that would make the trade deadline less interesting, and it would hurt teams that are near the bottom, because it would be more difficult to try to make some speculative pickups for the following year. However, if we had a maximum of, say, 6 moves per week, that would prevent streaming, but still enable a couple spot starts.


The only slight drawback to a limit is our farm promotions - it would give a bit of an advantage to someone with no farm players to promote/demote, but probably not enough to make much of a difference. I'd be OK with a 6-8 moves per week limit.

Here's a twist - what would you think about then reducing the number of moves per week for the playoffs? Say 8 during the season and 4 during the playoffs?


Do we know if this is possible to do in Yahoo? I'd be much more in favor of it if we can put that in place in Yahoo, rather than trying to self-police it.

I looked in another league I commish, and it appears you can change the limits any time.

I'm cool with whatever has been suggested so far. Maybe 1 more OF and P for next year and another P and MI/CI for the following year.

How bout this Greinke/Lawrie swap? Looks like the trade jinxed both!

I think I like the idea of going OF/OF/P or OF/P/BN and then MI/CI/P the next year rather than vice versus. I think the related ideas we might need to discuss would be do we want 2 catchers (not advocating, just asking) and how we want those P spots allocated (force another SP and/or RP spot or just load up on general spots). I thought of something else a while ago but it's escaping my mind for the moment !+)

Yeah, that's fine to set a reasonable number and stick with it. And you can name it after me as well. ;D

Did you see Olt and a farm pick are also involved on the MadBum side?

Very interesting trade, even with Olt involved. I'm surprised, Bwanna, that you would want to give up such a good piece when you are in a great position to go deep into the playoffs as is.
