So it has definitely been affecting my drafting...

we definitely discussed and decided on the 4 year keeper limit, i've been drafting under that rule as well.

make it simple. no minor leagues ever. everyone is eligible. its getting out of hand now.

I'm not saying that you can draft ANYONE in the MiLB draft, that would mean 25-30...

And if you're worried about players being eligible in both drafts, make them separate drafts and not coinciding. You're seriously talking 2 prospects out of the 60 that would most likely be drafted(or even wanted) in the MLB draft.

The ideas I've given aren't complicated at all...

I'm just going to hold off now until I know for sure that we're either doing a MiLB system or not.

not true. if i have the last pick in the 23rd round of the major league draft, i would much rather have neftali feliz or someone like that than a pedro feliz or carlos ruiz. then i would just stash the minor league player on my farm, and pick up a feliz or ruiz anyway. with that system, there are too many loopholes.

either way, a decision needs to be made very soon.

No, read my post. I was saying ANYONE drafted in the MLB draft can NEVER been put into your farm system(and Feliz wouldn't be eligible either in the MLB draft because he's not in the 0<x<130/50, it's not complicated but it may be misunderstood). That's why I posted it more than once to get that point across. Besides, I think to negate most of this, the MiLB draft should come before the Regular draft, that way we wouldn't have the Price/Maybin problem that would encounter by running them coincided or MiLB after the draft. That way their drafted as prospects and the ability to be in your farm system instead of being forced to be on the active roster.

And since we'll have it next year, I don't see why we can't have a nice healthy debate about it now while we're all here.
