I'm OK with starting fresh if there's consensus with the escalating consequences I suggested. More discussion?

EDIT:

This would absolutely mitigate some of these problems. It obviously wouldn't apply to owned players currently in the MLB (ie Adams), but it would take a number of rookie eligible players out of the FA pool.


This seems like a good idea to me as well - we can add up to 5 N/A slots. Any problem doing that? We could at least stash some of our farm players there.

I'll chime in again. These rules seem really ridiculous to me. It's not like we all dropped $100 on a buy in for this league. It's for bragging rights only. Is missing your player for one day really going to have a big effect on the season? Has there ever even been a time where a MiLB-er was incorrectly added and the team that actually owned them wanted to add them immediately? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills...

It's pretty clear that I'm heavily against something like this and I'm pretty sure this is only the 2nd time in whatever number of years that we've been doing this that I've incorrectly added an MiLB-er. I don't see the need to do something like this and I'm more than willing to help out with commish duties to ease the burden of policing this. I'll go a long with whatever the rest of the league decides but this seems really pointless to me...

Vote please:

I believe if we make this happen, we'll reduce the number of accidental pickups to one or two per season at the most. Life will be easier for everyone - as it should be.

edit: I screwed up the initial poll, so vote again if you had already voted. Sorry.

Removed the NA slots from the proposal - only thing in the proposal now are penalties for not checking the farm roster (http://bit.ly/lfod). I'm afraid to change the title of the poll again - last time it messed up the voting options.

Btw, I would make a small wager that there would be no more accidental pickups if we impose a penalty in the future. With just a warning for the first pickup and a farm pickup for the second (which half the league members don't use), there's not a lot to get upset about. If you do it a third time, I don't get it.

Congrats again to rookies.

I've updated farm players eligibility for next season on the spreadsheet: http://bit.ly/lfod
