I like this idea. We could go 200/160/120/80/40 for the top five.

Fifth should get their buy-in back.  Maybe drop third place down by $10.

Are 2020 draftees eligible during waivers?

I don't think they're supposed to be eligible until the winter supplemental draft

2020 draftees and international free agents are still off limits.

I'll do whatever to hold my spot for 2021 and decide from there I guess, but i really don't care about this season.

To clarify on the additional roster spots: Am I correct in saying we're going to carry 48 until MLB officially moves back down to 26-man active rosters (2021 or beyond?)? Or will we need to trim back to 40 before the competitive balance draft this offseason?

26 man roster take effect in late August this year, I believe.

Good call. I really hope they're able to do that 👍

That's a very good question. 

It would probably be easier to keep the expanded rosters until next year's competitive balance draft.  My objective was to allow owners to shuffle 2020 players without letting go of their long-term prospects.

I'll unlock transactions and place all players on waivers tomorrow.

So, am I correct in saying, we can go to 48 players immediately?

Transactions are still locked until tomorrow.  You can increase to 44 with the Monday early AM waivers run and then to 48 with a second run on Wednesday early AM.  Normal FCFS free agents will resume after that.

Players from the 2020 amateur draft and international free agent signing window are off-limits until next year.

Transactions have been reopened.  All eligible players are on waivers until early Monday AM.  You can add four players (plus any add/drops) to get to 44 players.

Process will be repeated on early Wednesday AM to get to the temporary roster limit of 48.

First waivers ran last night.

I think the second waivers will run on Wednesday AM but it's possible it could happen tonight.  I set the CBS transactions policy to not perform waivers on Tuesdays but if you try to add a player now, it says available 7/21 AM.  

:shrug:

You missed a plethora of inconsequential mediocrity. 

You're new but that's pretty much the norm for Serious Biz transactions.

I don't actually have any of those guys, so I need you to put them on the block and trade them to me.

I half forgot. I put in claims for my regular revolving door crew of Freddy Peralta and Isaac Paredes, but I did not remember my plan to come back and do a deeper dive later.

That sort of sums up my enthusiasm level for this season.

It looks like waivers ran tonight.  I'll figure out CBS one of these years.

I'll flip the switch for FCFS on Tuesday around noon EDT. 

48 man rosters are ridiculous.  Managing them on mobile will be interesting but I don't have anywhere to go.

48 man roster looks gigantic and then I remember these players are going to be dropping like flies.

MLB supposedly cutting rosters to 28 on Thursday.  Are we cutting?

I could easily cut 28 guys.

Let's keep big rosters at least until the next CB minidraft.  The objective of the rule was to allow people to compete this year without messing with their long-term prospects.  Nothing's really changed in that regard.

Why is there a trade deadline? 
 

I mean especially this year, but really it should be 1 September anyway. 
 

I need a pitcher. Can offer bat.

I'll trade you Greinke if you can persuade @Eephus to push back the deadline.

On a totally unrelated topic... Are you allowed to add Austin Martin? Thought 2020 draft guys were off limits

No I'm not but he added Crochet, so I figured maybe that rule had changed.

2020 has been a ####show but seeing Serious Biz owners using highly illegal transactions to pad "first to own" statistics is something I never thought I'd see. Truly a sad time to be alive.

I wasn’t sure if he was eligible once he made his debut so I picked him up and PM’d @Eephus for clarification.

Yep, and I added Martin in case there was some sort of precedent changing decision made :shrug:

Harsh but fair given the morally reprehensible nature of these actions. "First to own" counts will always need an asterisk moving forward. If only there was a remedy to undo their transgressions.
