So does this mean if they are not in the database, we do not get the player when/if they are added?

I'm going to post the players missing from each team because they're not in the database. PM me your excess players please so I can add it to spreadsheet.

Also, don't forget, when your sending down a prospect- you have to announce it.


should we announce on ESPN or the Cafe or both?

Wait, so are some teams going to have MLB rights to more than 40 players?

The way I read it, some of our 40-man roster picks are not available on EPSN so we are supposed to pick up someone else on waivers

you do get the player if theyre on the list that ill post to the spreadsheet. that being for the players who were drafted but are not on espn database.

i guess a couple teams will be like that for now which will probably change pretty quick. its more of a headache than tracking one teams pick ups and drops for a while.

I guess I have no idea what this discussion is about. I am lost...can you expand what you are talking about here? Do you mean you set up ESPN to allow all of us to do our own Add/Drops, so we have to be honest and not have more than 40 players at a time?
Or is this something else?

I might be confused as well. From what i understand is, players are not in the database because they're probably not gonna be playing. So, a team who drafted a minor league player is being rewarded and given rights to an extra 1-3 guys.

I see it as we have 2 options, let everyone be on the honor system. if you see em add without a drop, they're probably going over their limit.

or

have them add complete randoms, like Russ Ortiz and Shawn Estes, that are of no use to fill up those missing spots. which sounds like could be the easiest.

Well, some of us have MLB roster players who are not listed in data base.

Can someone please update the minor league rosters. We are getting way too many double picks. I think bonifacio has been picked already
