Y's Guy just selected Hiroyuki Nakajima in n00bs.
Where in the league settings does it say, "we aren't able to draft players who have no MLB experience, even if they're on a roster"?
I want to clear this up ASAP so Y's Guy can repick as there has already been a pick made after him... someone please either post in here or the draft discussion in our league if possible. Thanks a lot.
We discussed it in the Masters League draft settings thread before we began. I do not know if it was clarified in Pond Scum or N00bs.
My understanding is that it has been run that way in years past, and so most league members are already familiar with that rule. I won Pond Scum last year, but I don't recall discussion about it before that draft. There may have been... I just don't recall it.
Chris8 might be able to add more to this discussion. All parties should keep in mind that the mods and commissioners for these leagues have voluntarily assumed those roles, in order to ensure that these annual leagues continued this year. Some of us (myself, specifically,) are serving in this capacity for the first time. Errors may be made along the way...
I would simply tell Y's guy that the standard in these leagues has always been that anyone who did not play in the major leagues last season is not eligible for the draft, and must instead be acquired through the waivers process once the season has begun. Suspend the draft until he can make another pick, and resume it after clarifying this rule with all members of the league.
