    Yes to all three questions.

    on Google telling me they'll be ok
    Yeah, you might be fucked, thaw em out, soak in warm water for a few seconds to soften the leather, oil em, and tie the gloves with a softball in it, and pray. Oh, make sure you put your fingers through the slots with vaseline on your hands, keeps the leather from forming erradictly.

    Some questions:

    Yes!

    Can we carry more than 15 minor leaguers if we cut into our active roster (so say we want 17 minor leaguers, can we cut 2 active guys and have the surplus 2 minor leaguers just chilling on the active roster)?

    You can carry Green flags on your active roster if you want. So yes. Detroit is a master at this

    Can we add/drop minor leaguers throughout the season?

    You can only add minors if they have played in an MLB game

    Thanks

    Well question 3, they must've played a game in the bigs, unless you mean your own green flags.

    Yeah I figured the first question took care of that. You can add and drop minor leaguers mid season as long as the ones you add have already debuted.

    Other tidbits: If you promote a minor league player, you are allowed to send him back down to the minors provided he was sent down in real life(he'll have a green flag). When that player is promoted again IRL, you have 15 days to put him back on your major league roster or he gets exposed to waivers. This is the Domingo Santana clause.

    If you also pick up a minor league player that hasnt played in a major league game, he gets dropped and your waiver position gets bumped down to 30

    Just discovered I could have moved Valencia to the minors instead of cutting him. Didn't know a blue flag could go to minors. Thought it was just green dammit.

    Thanks bro. Yeah I'll be praying now. Fuck.

    On a cool note, my son just started off season workouts. One of coaches for hitting here is Kevin Smith (recent Jay draftee). He has nice 7 series BMW so must've gotten some kind of bonus lol

    K. You guys can have your thread back

    You're brand new, I'm sure they can revert it.

    If they're brand new connor, don't drop em in the water unless you can't soften em up and contour em with oil, on your own. Give it time.
