If we do a minors draft this year, and use 130/50 eligibility requirements, we are no longer limited to the restricted database. You cannot draft a <130/50 player in the MLB draft -> all under 130/50 can only be drafted in the MiLB draft -> any player under the limit not drafted (but is in the database) is available to anyone on the WW. After the top 60 prospects are gone, there will be little chance any of the problems I outlined before would be encountered as any of the worthwhile prospects to hoard will already be claimed on another's farm system.
But I don't see why we wouldn't be able to draft anyone 0 < x < 130/50 in the MLB draft. What's the problem with that? Why does that make the MiLB draft useless? I mean I really don't understand the "problem" that you see. If the problem is that someone can draft a player that's < 130/50 in the MLB draft and try to stick them in their MiLB roster, than this is the solution I said earlier:
So think of it as 2 seperate rosters. Farm and Active. Farm can go to Active, but not vice-versa.
Drafted in MLB draft, but 0 < x < 130/50 = Active Roster, can't be put on farm (and can't draft anyone without MLB experience)
Drafted in MiLB draft, but < 130/50 = Farm Roster, can be activated at any time but once limit reached, forced to active or dropped
Forgive me for reiterating things, I'm just trying to understand what you feel the problem with drafting rookie eligible players in the draft.
