Discussing future rule changes or configuring CBS or Fantrax is fine, but I'm struggling with how how we allow a blatant disregard of an obvious foul to the integrity of the league.  Bottom line is how do you justify allowing somehow who has disregarded his team and not activated his number one pick in six weeks to pick up a top prospect?  That stinks.  This is not a Matt issue, this is a basic fairness issue.  Sorry, JMO.

Hey totally get that!  Maybe just make it up to other owners in the league to point it out if they see it?  Just a thought.

The league should be fun, not where we are tattling on each other.  I like to make a way where it decreases the burden on the commissioners and  makes it more user freiendly that discourages outright tanking.

Years ago when the league started, every move had to go through Bill Johnson, the commissioner.  It was tedious and exhausting, especially with 20 teams.  Dave started helping out.  When WJ "retired," Dave took over and I helped him out by making moves when he was swamped.  When Dave stepped down, he stayed on to help me and I expanded the group later to the Circle, guys like Boris, 82, Chiman, ISF, mO, and others to whom I entrusted Commissioner powers.   Nobody really enjoyed, making moves and hoping somebody had time to make it for them.   Ironically that system helped prevent this kind of issue, however, because no way would it go 6 weeks with a player like Judge not being activated.  Somebody would have noticed it.  We all love to make our own moves, but sometimes we pay for it when we get it.

The only reason to leave Judge inactive is to increase the chances of getting the top overall pick in the lottery. So I think this issue would take care of itself if that wasn't dictated entirely by scoring the fewest points. Maybe we could require a minimum number of games played and innings pitched to qualify for the lottery? That would discourage keeping part time players in roster spots for extended periods.

Devís roster is illegal too.  He has Garcia in the minors and he should be on the active roster.





Garcia was activate last night after I logged off...and he was in the minors because it was the only way I could replace him when games started on the day he went on the il.   i would have asked to have you fix it, but i am keeping my communication with you to a minimum since you blew up at me in april...i figure it best to stay out of your way since you are so sensitive.

I have never blown up at people about fixing rosters.  Iím sorry that I blew up at you, people just need to be patient with requests and Iím allowed to have a bad day.

Or because the league doesn't reward teams for being competitive by having playoffs.  The Cubs aren't very good right now, but if they can squeeze their way into the playoffs anything can happen.  If we have 8-10 teams making the playoffs it will solve the problem as everyone will be in the mix for a playoff spot for a good majority of the year.

If a manager loses interest because his team isn't competitive, they very well may forget to check their roster.  Once the trade deadline was reached I pretty much forgot to check my roster as I couldn't make trades and my team was out of contention.  It isn't a great deal of fun.

I started trading off solid pieces after 2 months because I knew I couldn't win with my roster as is.  I figured I would try to build for next year by stockpiling higher picks.  If we had a playoff system I would have gone the other way and tried accumulating talent to make sure I was in the top 8 (or 10 or 12) for a playoff spot.

I know the league has been around a lot longer than me, but sometimes changes need to be made to improve the league.  MLB added a pitch clock, bigger bases, instant replay and a DH in the NL among significant changes.  I think we can do the same.

One of the things I pushed for was upping the number of ABs or IP before a player has to be projected.  Ronny Mauricio and POSSIBLY Jordan Lawlar got September callups and will get to 50 ABs.  If I am stuck protecting both of them (or cutting them loose) it is ridiculous.  I have tried to build a solid base and being able to keep them as MiLB guys would go a long way.  Alas I don't think the vote was even close last year when it was discussed.

Yes I know that I changed the subject at the end, but venting after a long season.

I still think making it easier to stash minor leaguers hurts the league overall.  Lawler and Mauricio wonít close the gap.  Letting me stick Wicks in the minors and not worry about a starting pitcher earlier on will help me a lot more.

I think everyone agrees changes need to made.  Playoffs seem like a really good idea.  Coming up with a way to discourage tanking would be smart.  Iíd like to come up with a way make transactions easier on the owners and myself. We canít go back to a small group making every move.  I donít have that much time and no one else was willing to put in the time to do it either.  Things can be done to improve the league.

You are misrepresenting my earlier post.  I am not suggesting we go back to a Circle with no one able to make their own moves.  I was pointing out that's why we have never had this kind of issue before.  The league still needs to be honor-bound and have integrity.  All these suggested solutions are obscuring the original issue.

How about a 6 man bench (to plug and play for injured players) and unlimited roster moves that process every M-W-F (to keep the 24/7 fantasy baseball guys from scooping every player).

Bench players would have to include a SP, RP, CI, MI, C and OF to account for possible injuries.

Waiver process remains the same except the bottom 8 teams rotate the next waiver claim (so tanking isnít done for waiver claims).

I agree that we need to be responsible for our teams.  I think transactions can be handled in a better manner to make it easier for everyone.

The Brats place Tyler O'Neill on the IL and sign Mark Vientos to replace.

The Brats place Alec Burleson on the IL and would like to sign Charlie Blackmon to replace.  Will need commish help on it since Fantrax has me out of add/drops again.
