Prospects will be added. I can't say which, or whether the guy any of you particularly want will be one of them.
I get that, but it does seem kind of insane from our end. Once Yahoo opens its doors for 2013 baseball, that's tacitly saying, "OK, guys, do your thing!" Some more involved leagues have FA drafts, prospect drafts, contract signing periods, all contingent on the player database. One of my leagues was going to start our minors draft today until we noticed the lack of prospects. How is it possible that Yahoo opened its doors with an incomplete database AND no timetable on when prospects would be added AND no ability to generate such a timetable?
At some point, at least, will there be some obvious notification that this is the "final database" for the year? As in, no more players will be added (unless they are called up to an MLB team and are not in the database already).
Basically, none of my leagues can start drafting until we're sure that Oscar Tavaras isn't going to randomly pop into the player pool mid-draft, or Wil Myers magically lose C eligibility. (I'm not saying he SHOULD have it, as he hasn't caught an actual baseball game since hi-A in 2010, but if he has it now and we start drafting, taking it away at some arbitrary point isn't fair)
