6 non-playoff teams can compete, but the team who finishes 12th shouldn't get the 12th pick.

7th - 1st, 8th - 2nd and so on. So all non-playoff teams still pick before the playoff teams do. Then playoffs in order of finish. Champion should still be picking last in the first round.

Do I also get the 1st pick in the minor league draft or is that draft order randomized?

One issue we need to address is eligibility for the MLB draft. The last year or two, we've started drafting as soon as ESPN has opened up. Issue is, sometimes we've started before before the player pool updates. So either we need to come up with a rule and stick with it, or wait until we definitively know that the player pool is done updating. Not fair at all if we get halfway through the draft and then desirable players are added after we've started

Can we make a rule that the MLB draft is for players you intend on keeping on the MLB roster, not players you want to grab before the Minors draft?

Or can we hold the minors draft before the majors draft?

I just don't think prospects should be taken in the majors draft with the intention of immediately sending them to the minors. Or if you draft someone in the majors draft they have to stay on the majors roster for a certain period of time.

It just feels like what's the point of having two drafts if people are going to just take the more desired prospects in the majors portion of the draft

I'm with you to an extent. I'd agree with that in principle, I think, but in practice it becomes difficult to enforce. We allow promotions/demotions at any time between majors and minors, so what's the point where it becomes ok to move someone you took in the MLB draft to your MiLB roster, vs. you're doing it just to be able to hoard more prospects in the major league draft?

Don't know if I did a good job at explaining that, does that make sense?

I have 3 guys I really want and I should hopefully be able to nab 2 of them. I'm really excited to see what my team looks like after this draft.

Ok, let's get some stuff figured out. First up is draft eligibility. Again, the issue here is that sometimes in the past, we've started our draft before the player pool has updated- Meaning we don't know who will be in it and who won't. The easiest solution would of course be waiting until the player pool updates. Issues with that are-

A) We all like to get started as soon as possible
B) Sometimes they don't update the player pool in one shot. I.e. they add a handful of players on Monday, another handful on Wednesday, another on Friday, etc
C) There's not really a good way to tell when the pool has been finished updating

So, we need to come up with draft eligibility rules to cover things. I'm not sure how best to do this. We can't just say anyone in the player pool because it might be updated as we're drafting. Ideas?

We should also keep Seth's idea in mind about prospects. I don't think it's a huge pressing issue, but something to consider

I had actually applied to a company that does fantasy sports technology. SportsHub, IIRC? They're the parent company of LeagueSafe. Never heard back, though. But I'm pretty excited about the job that did work out today!

Anyone looking to kick the tires on trades already? Pretty open to things at this point, but likely will won't be trading Bauer, Berrios, or JoRam

So we're allowed to make trades again?
