    I would think grabbing a guy through the MiLB draft who on the 40-man (obviously without previous MLB experience) would be the only way this should be acceptable.

    We all have to deal with the fluctuations on our rosters as guys go through the DL to minors, and don't get me started on the September call-ups, part of the league and we should all be in the same boat.

    I currently have two players that I just drafted (Dylan Cozens and Miguel Andujar) that do not have green flags, which I have on my MLB roster.
    They'll have green flags when the season starts (unless they make the team), so it's a little tricky with the roster management until then.
    However, I have about six guys in the injured reserve, who aren't actually injured anymore, so it kind of balances out.

    If guys come off of IR before the green flags go on, I'll have an illegal roster, so I'll need to make sure all my regulars are in place, as they won't let me make roster changes until I get that fixed, which will probably take some trading to do.

    I've always though there should be a trade exception. If I trade, say, Ben Lively (no MLB experience, no green flag, has never been on my pro roster), I don't think they should have to keep him on their pro roster because fantrax is quirky.

    Cyborg just ruled that you can have them moved to the farm now if you want.

    IMO we should simply not count moving guys to the MLB roster as a "promotion" if it's done in the off-season (as long as the player is moved back down before the first game). There's still roster issues, but at least there aren't any other future promotion issues.

    I was just going to get around to try and work something out. You snooze you lose I guess.

    Let's hope the Petco effect makes the top half of that SD rotation, not completely suck. If that even happens to one of them, I'm laughing.

    Is pick 75 the Twins or Cardinals? Doc said Twins but Fantrax says Cardinals. And 77 is now Padres instead of Nats?
