    MiLBers I'm looking to move:

    Daniel Montano (COL - CF)
    Justin Williams (TB - OF)
    Miguel Almonte (KC - RP) -- currently not MiLB eligible
    Yeudy Garcia (PIT - SP)
    Jon Harris (TOR - SP)
    Mike Nikorak (COL - SP)

    We can make a deal or you'll have to waste a pick to get them if you're interested. Lots of teams out there with barren farm systems and you could probably give yourself a bump with a decent, but superfluous, MLBer and save your picks for January.

    4) Having more milb spots is good for a team like Dinger's because they have more room for development instead of using MLB roster spots for that.
    1) That depends on how people use it, but yes it will have the benefit for some teams of being able to hang onto younger guys (teams like mine). Agree about not drying up the prospect pool, but that's not really the problem anyway. Minor leagues also let guys stash unsigned players too, so I could go pick up a bunch of unemployed players, stash them with my new five spots, and then there's even less on the market when it comes to immediate big league help.
    2) There aren't that many good players if teams are stashing half a dozen big leaguers on the DL. If there were plenty of good players in free agency I'd be scooping them up and trading them after a hot streak.
    3) Gsellman was basically a September call-up. Dinger had his problems earlier on. Even with my own team, I was hoping that shitbags like Cesar Ramos would get a spot start in when Volquez was my only starter with a pulse.
    4) Totally agree. I'd vote Yes in your poll if we didn't have unlimited DLs that work like player deposit boxes. The problem is that we have too many ways to hoard.

    I'm one of the teams this would greatly benefit, but I'm firmly against it. 15 is already a very large number, and we have a lot more flexibility compared to any other type of league as it is. We SHOULD have to make some tough choices, that's part of fantasy sports. The idea isn't to stockpile a million prospects and hope a few break out, it's to identify the likely ones and lord it over people forever.

    Plus as people have stated before, part of the idea is to mimic a 40 man roster.

    Oakland is really gearing up. Lineup looks good, with the partial exception of d'Arnaud (who knows with this guy) and probably Brandon Phillips. Strong rotation, good BP. Easy Wild Card at the least?

    I like Chappy's team a lot. I don't think it's in 'easy' playoff territory though. Offense is deep, but might have holes at C and 2B. Love the pitching staff though.

    to be fair, I think Walkers value is going to go down the tubes in dry Zona, but I agree the return is still too lite.

    Taijuan Walker was far too old to remain on the Tigers roster. I'm surprised he lasted this long. Odor is surely the next to go.

    Surprised that wasn't to Jaysblue, but I guess Chappy is the next most likely candidate. Remember Matt Harvey for Matt Wieters and the #4 milb pick? Good times.
