Financials are still on
« on: October 20, 2008, 05:20:53 PM »
I'm getting 40 man roster warnings because guys have major league contracts and I want to move them down to AAA.  Any thoughts?

Even with financials off, if we use 40-man rosters, there are some restrictions to moving guys around. A player has to be on the 40-man to be on the major-league roster.

yeah, I had to add all my major league players to the 40 man roster, but then was able to freely move them without problem.

Why are we enforcing 40 man roster rules in a league without financials or a rule V draft?

To make Spring Training more comprehensive? Plus there's probably some morale effect, so it makes sense to put one's best players on the 40-man.

Originally, I had the Secondary (40-Man) Rosters disabled.  However, I had to enable it in order to disable the right to refuse minor league assignments (that option doesn't even appear until the 40-man rosters are enabled).

Trust me, financials are off.  I ran several test seasons during the conversion process to make sure stats were in line with what we were seeing in 6.5, and be warned; soon you'll be getting emails from players who want to re-sign with you.  Fear not, they will NOT become FA's at the end of the year.

This brings up an interesting question: would it make sense for the NPBL to have a rule 5 draft and/or minor-league free agency?

Would it be possible to have minor league FA without major league FA?

This is possible with financials on.  Not sure if it is followed with financials off, as you have to turn financials on just to get to the setting.

Then, while it would be intriguing and potentially add to the FA pool quality, I'd vote no.

These emails are annoying.  Everytime I get one I panic briefly and then remind myself that I can just ignore them.
