Trade deadline is Tuesday.  Rules changes up for discussion

  1. Pre-season competitive balance draft
  2. Ban on in-season adds of amateur and international players
  3. Waivers instead of FCFS
  4. :shrug:

1 and 2 fot sure, I prefer waivers but don't have strong feelings there. I have always loved a twice a week waiver run using a $100 pot to bid. Makes it fun.

The one you sent me was probably the best offer I've ever gotten from you. Just doesn't work for me right now. 

I wish I could remember it.  Feel free to post it here.  I am not really sure on values these days anyway.  This is the only league I'm in and I don't even watch MLB anymore.

Yes on 1, protect 25 players.

No on 2 and 3 but I won't whine if they pass.

I'm fine with waivers to help with closers but I enjoy picking up SPs at 657 to use them at 7:05 if we can make some kind of cutoff where the day becomes fcfs until lock.  Daily waivers at 10a where players you win are immediately available and then fcfs until games start would be my favorite.

So I guess mark me as a yes for all, but I strongly prefer some ww setups to others.

CBS runs waivers in the early AM (EST).  There are no commissioner options to adjust this or select an exact time.

Can that waiver be followed by FCFS until games start, like Cheese suggested? That would be the perfect solution IMO.

Closers and other players gaining overnight value go through waivers, but you can still speculate on prospects during FCFS time without burning your waiver priority.

Waivers are run every night but currently only dropped players are subject to waivers (2 days).  The only other option is to force all FAs through waivers which would kill FCFS. 

CBS also supports FAAB but that doesn't make sense in this format.

If the only option is every single pickup has to be through waivers for some reason change me to a no.

Any thought to adding 1 or 2 DL spots back that we classify as MLB only?  10 Day DL has been a #####.

1. Yes

2. Yes

3. No

Just leave it like it is on the FCFS thing. Amateur and international players going into off-season draft pool should alleviate most of the non-closer worries with the current setup.

I'm a fan of weekly lineups, actually. When you make your lineup moves on Monday morning and become a spectator for the remainder of the week, it's actually quite an enjoyable experience. Less of a job.

That being said, I have a feeling we won't be able to talk folks into that.

1 or 2 spots wouldn't change anything. Everybody's got at least 1 or 2 injured guys. It'd just be a free roster spot.

If there was some way to make a DL spot that could only be used if you have 6+ injuries, I would be for that.

I just went through my keepers and I have 24 guys I will almost certainly keep. 

An added benefit to the new system is it will increase the offseason trades, I have a couple of nice pieces I will be willing to trade come spring.  As a rebuilding team it's tough, I have invested in prospects for three years and it's hard to leave them unprotected. 

I honestly think the changes we made will enthuse the league.  It's $50, worth every penny IMO.

Very tight up top :popcorn: 

@Eephus could gain some hitting points R/HR/RBI all close. There are some SB points that a getable too but with Tre Turner back not sure he will be able to ultimately pass me

What's the new system?  Some sort of protection draft?

Yep. I believe we landed on protect 25, 3-round draft, no one can lose more than 3.

I will be in the market for SP next season. Love my offense now but my pitching staff has totally imploded.

Can we still make off season pickups?

As usual, rosters will be locked beginning Monday Oct 2nd.

The only planned rules change for next year are:

Competitive Balance draft replaces the Add/Drop Draft:  You can protect 25 players.  The remaining players will be exposed in a three round non-snake draft in reverse order of 2017 standings.  A team can only lose three players in this draft.  You can draft your own unprotected players which will count as one of the three.  Draft pool will consist of unprotected players, CBS free agents and amateur/international players

In-season ban on picking up amateur/international players.  They can only be picked up during the pre-season competitive balance draft.  I haven't thought through how to handle the MLB amateur draft because CBS doesn't add players to the database until they sign (and sometimes not even then).   I'm leaning toward FCFS on players as they're drafted but am all ears if somebody has a better idea.

Leave them until the following years preseason draft?  Or have a 4th of July draft celebration draft of newly drafted draftees?

Adding them to the following year has some merit.  It's fairer, would give us a couple of months of rookie/low A stats to base our picks on, and might reduce the number of unprotected players teams lose in the Hoosdraft.

The only downside I guess would in the rare event that a first year pro gets called up to the big leagues.  This is how I ended up with Chris Sale while chasing SV as usual.
