Because he wasn't on any 40-man roster...


neither is Carlos Lee. neither was Valverde at the time. same with Bobby Abreu, Jim Thome, Scott Rolen, and others.
they're all there.
last I knew any player who played in the majors the season before meant he would be available the following season.


Things like that are annoying for sure. I had Nikola Mirotic in a Dynasty basketball league and last season he was in the database and this season he wasn't. Removing a player barring an outright retirement, and even that that's up for discussion, seems counter intuitive.

Maybe it's just my league, but I noticed the other day that Adam Rosales is 2B,SS, and CI eligible in my league. When you check his position eligibility through Yahoo, he has E's for 2B, SS, CI, and MI. Something is clearly not right. Rosales doesn't have games started or played at 1B or 3B.

And it really brought up a secondary thought. Since CI and MI are separate columns can someone have 5 starts total between 1B and 3B, or 2B and SS and gain CI or MI without actually having played 5 starts or 10 times at each position. I always assumed no, but then I was thinking maybe this was an issue. Ramiro Pena for example has only MI eligibility but needs 3 more starts at 2B and 1 more at SS to be eligible there. Does that mean his 6 total starts at MI gave him the eligibility?

When searching the available player pool, is there a way that a filter could be added for only DL guys or only NA guys? It would be very useful!

While I understand wanting to filter for only NA guys as scouting for rookies, why would you want to filter for DL guys? I always thought it would be nice to click a button to exclude DL guys from the player list since most of the time when I am looking to pick up a player or stream a pitcher, DL guys are obsolete.

So that I can see if maybe I forgot about someone who is worth stashing on my DL (guys like Ted Lilly up until recently, Adam Eaton, Colby Lewis, etc.). If I have a transaction I want to make, I can drop the guy I want, add the DL guy, throw him on my DL, and then add the player I wanted to add.

Okay, that makes perfect sense. There have been times when I have seen guys on DL who I have wanted on occasion, and that is the perfect time to pick them up when you are going to drop someone anyways. Drop useless player A to pick up player B, but grab player C who is on the DL to stash for later in between. I get it. ;-D

I do this too, but usually only in April. By the time the Calendar turns to May I usually have about 5 guys that I drafted on the DL and have to drop the Luebke/Beachy type guys I was sitting on !+)

I'm not sure if someone has already brought this up...

It would be nice to have a player's current season (or last 30 day) stats populate when you first click the button to start a trade proposal. Right now it defaults to the player's current DAY stats and I really dont think anyone is going to make a trade based off of one game.

Not a big deal, just something that would be nice to see.
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

I play in a homer league where I can only have players on my team that have played for my team in the past or present and I easily max out the 50 player allotment... This doesn't sound like it would be a difficult change (assuming that it is a constant that can be modified)...

Any chance?

TIA


So I take it this won't be address AGAIN, even though it is probably a quick change to the code (especially if it is a constant)...

Statements like this ^ never cease to piss me off.

Please stop assuming you know what is involved in changing the implementation of a feature, when you know nothing about the internals of the current implementation, nor do you know the all the factors that determine decisions about the implementation.

Make the request politely, make a case for the request, and thank the provider for providing a pretty freakin' good implementation of a free service.
