PostSubject: New Rule For Pickups of Prospects Called Up   Sat Mar 24, 2012 8:20 pm

Ok, we've had many a problems with players being picked up that have just been called up. Right now, the rule is that they have to play one game. But it's ambiguous as to when that one game is qualified. So hence, this new rule...

Once a prospect is called up (that isn't already owned by one of the teams here), he has to play 1 game.

However, to be qualified for pick up, we take the time of the end of the game, which is going to be calculated by starting time (so if it's a 7:05 game, the starting time is going to be calculated as 7:05, we don't care the National Anthem singer added 10 minutes of lyrics and delayed the game until 7:15) and then add on the time of game provided by mlb.com, to reach the time of the end of the game. So if you want to figure out what time, the game ended, grab a calculator or ask Siri and just add 7:05 (or 10:05 or whatever) plus say 2:58 or 3:10 or however long the game went.

Once you get to the end of the game, add 22 hours to it. That is when, the prospect is eligible to be picked up.

Most games end in the range of 10 pm est to 1 am est. Adding 22 hours to it, for a game that ends at 10 pm est gets you to 8 pm est, and 5 pm pst. For a game that ends at 1 am, this would then be 11 pm est, 8 pm pst. So 22 hours after the prospect's first game, is then eligible to be added.

If the game is canceled, does not count, and you wait till he plays an official game. If the game is suspended, again, does not count, you wait until an official game.

Now, as a deterrent to people camping out at the given times and just picking off everyone, if you pick someone off after 22 hours of the prospect's first game, your ww is knocked back to 20. We can't add every new guy called up to the WW at first (which would have been the easier system if cbs allowed for it), but this is a way of circumventing cbs, yet still enforcing a slight penalty. This won't hurt you in terms of picking up people, it'll just act as if you used your ww priority to pick him up.

Now, once the prospect plays 3 official games, he is now eligible as a normal free agent, and you can pick him up without any penalty. The timing again is calculated, as the starting time of the game plus game time provided by mlb.com. So once the 3rd game is over, he is free game.

This is pretty much a necessary rule at this point so there isn't as much confusion about picking up players that have just been called up without any prior experience and also not on any teams. I know this reads like a lot, but the rule is simple. Easy to calculate the end of the game time. Add 22 hours, and then you pick him up. If you do pick him up, ww gets reset to 20 for you. After 3 official games, he's free for all.

Any one have any problems?

For day games (and Cubs, since apparently they are selenophobic) same rules apply. Mostly since these are weekend games, it'll land you in the mid-day to late afternoon range, which shouldn't be a problem since most of you would be home.

Edited: Adjusted PST to 3 hours instead of 4 hours behind EST like I thought it was for some reason, lol.
