I guess I still don't entirely understand why it is so frustrating for you that prospect A is treated slightly different than prospect B, if each guy gets fair treatment for all managers in your league, but I believe it does frustrate you, so I'm trying to understand that better. I don't know if there is a problem I'm missing, or if you're just being jarred by mismatched expectations since you believed we tried to only put players into the game when they actually had pitched (when in fact the driving factor is that they are going to be desired by managers).
Hope this helps. Thanks again...
wow, you type insanely fast.
As always I do appreciate your feedback.
What is frustrating is that there are no set guidelines.
You make it sound like there are a few guys sitting around in a room giving thumbs up or thumbs down to each player based upon the fanatical calling of a few. (ie us cafers)
There really should be some set structure as to who is in and who is out. It won't change anything this year, I realize that.
As a commish what am I supposed to tell the guys with number one waiver, "Sorry you were at work when the new hot prospect got called up, your screwed"
Players like Hamels last year and even Hughes this year had to clear Waivers. It was a fair process to all involved. But by taking a slect few minor leaguer that many players, I would guess (50% of your your team owners) may have never heard of, and sticking him in the database, only to see him fall to page 25 is not a fair process. You have just rewarded the guy who happened to be sitting at his computer at 6 PM when the news broke.
I guess they way I see it is, if you are going to have guys in the database that have never even pitched 50 innings, or above A ball for that matter, then you should include them all, or none at all. Since it appears that having all the minor leaguers in will cause issues, I propose none of them get added to the database until they actually pitch.
