    No issues with adding rules that could go into effect on a flip or whatever. If the league thinks it needs something its all good with me to have a vote or whatever. This league runs smoothly as it is now.

    Re: EP rules?

    How about making some changes to the way rosters are handled.

    Say at 23 years of age players are automatically promoted from Low Minors to AAA (which counts towards the salary for allocations) and that players not on an active roster within x number of days of the start of spring training are automatically turned into free agents if they are on AAA rosters??

    Free Agency is pretty much useless unless you want to grab a used up old timer or an undrafted scrub. At least then there may be less hoarding and real chances to build competitive rosters versus the current trend of tanking for 6 years to rebuild...

    This I'm not keen on. Generally I do call up guys when they are 23 and are one of my best 25, even if they ride the bench. However, there are times I don't think a guy is quite ready or I just drafted a 22YO/23YO and I want to use his 23YO/24YO season to change his position in the LM. Its not common but I don't want that option taken away from me.

    Now I do know of a league that will require a team to release any 25YO+ with a $2M+ salary to put him on the AR or have him be released. That does prevent some inactive owners from letting high draft picks just waste away in the LM.

    AAA players do not count towards FOA unless they have 1 or more years experience. Just wanted to clarify that
    Happy, but a little lost
