I def think a change is in order and I think it should be discussed. I talked to Tobe and my brother about this before. More rounds sounds good because only one year is too little IMO. Also, I am not sure the first 10 rounds is the issue anymore. Its the back end that is the problem right now, but some people should be rewarded for that, so its a delicate balance. I def believe the person needs to move up quicker, maybe 2 the first year, 3 the next and 4 the next (but only if you the were the person to keep them, so if you deal someone it would go back down to only a 2 round move the first time that person kept them etc. I also like the "contract approach" of having someone for only a few years - maybe have different years too, like 3 for some guys 4 for another 2 for some based on certain criteria like longer if you had them from the minors the entire time to give credit for having a god eye for talent:-?


I like all those ideas, I would be down with any system that somehow limits how long people keep players. The only question is how to decide on the specific rules.


I think we can all hammer it out if everyone throws out some suggestions and then we make up a poll. This is a good place to start

Ive lost 2 of my top starters for at least 2+ weeks, my closer for the year and catcher for 2-3 months and we aren't even to game 4 yet :-t

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

Tobe is probably cursing right now at the thought of having to track another caveat with our league X-I
