One gripe I have about this draft system is the inability to draft players out of high school exclusively... I'm going to be in big trouble in a few years if I don't get some young prospects.



Peacock, I'm not sure you're going to be any worse off than the rest of us. I haven't had anyone in rookie ball since early last season. My league has a total of 2 players in rookie. Then just for s&g I went through the Legends teams real quick (seeing as how they're better at this than most of us) and counted a grand total of 4 players in rookie. I'm not going to go through every league but just going off that I would say it's pretty much that way all around. Very top-heavy in the minors at the present.

Eek. I guess that's good for lower ranked teams cause a bunch of players will probably be available but bad for long term prospects of teams who have most of their positions locked down.

Something should still be done about that.

+1 to separate High School and College pools. They each performed a very different function under the old draft, and those options were taken away when the pools were combined.

This might be my last season with a closer :(

Southpaw McNabb has done a great job in the role over the last three seasons, but he is starting to get old... He was never supposed to be the closer. He was supposed to be the LHS after MarroquĂ­n, but Marionette lasted past his due date, and McNabb showed the dominate performances required for a closer. Now they are both getting older and I don't have any other performers in the bullpen... Could be some lean years ahead, and may be the first time Haverhill goes to closer by committee. To top it off, all our LHP prospects sputtered out. So no dominance, and no young LHPs... Really botched that up :(

It will be exciting to try and recover from this situation I got myself into ;)

Another +1 to that. I think having them separate allows a more nuanced drafting strategy.

I just finished my first season at the helm of the Bradenton Bruins, and have accumulated my fair share of seemingly promising prospects. However, I'm struggling to figure out what position they are best suited for based on their defensive outlook. While some of them say they will become amazing in the field, their base fielding attribute is very low so I find it hard to believe that they will amount to reliable infielders.

My question is when the scouting report says that they will be amazing, outstanding, or solid in the field, does that directly correlate with the fielding stat or does it take into account range and arm?

If anyone with experience has the time to look over my minors system, and suggest which positions I should be playing my guys, that would be greatly appreciated.

The fielding comment relates only to fielding ability.
Range is how many balls they will get to.

Welcome to the club. I've been using Morse as closer last season because my previous stopgap had gotten too old and the only alternative, Matson, has a larger platoon split and was thus better kept at LHS. Both are decent relievers, but neither is what I would want as closer.

Currently we can view game MVP awards for players and pitchers on the all-time records list.

How about adding League MVP, Cy Young and Gold Gloves?
