Roster limit issue


Roster limit issue

Question about roster limits. I have my league set to Roster Size -26 and Minors Size -9, which should mean 35 total, right? But it seems an owner signed a 36th guy from Free agency. How can I set this so that 35 is the total roster number allowed?
Thanks!

Re: Roster limit issue

Can you share links? Was it a trade possibly that put him over?

Re: Re: Roster limit issue

Sure. Here's the link to the league.

It wasn't a trade. Free Agency just opened. I noticed that Milwaukee signed a bunch of guys, putting them at 36 for a few minutes, and then dropped a guy to put them back at 35.

A bunch of teams are dropping and signing guys, but I actually saw in Commish tools that Milwaukee had 36 for a minute or two.

Thanks Guy.

If this is the current state of things (27 of 26 in Majors, 8 of 9 in Minors), the system will allow you to add one player because it thinks there is space in the Minors. If you as Commish demoted someone, leaving 26 and 9, the team would be unable to pick someone up. This is what I think happened.

(If this is not what happened, then please ignore and I do apologize Gus.)

Re: Re: Roster limit issue

Exactly, there was a minor spot open so it allowed it. The issue is the 27 in majors which could only be allowed by trade or if commish added a player there, or if more than 26 was allowed at some point.

Re: Roster limit issue

Thanks guys. That makes sense. I think I cause the problem when I’m importing new players in the off-season and they all go to the majors without me noting how many are already there.
Much appreciated.

My grandmama figured this out right away, Gus, but I wanted to let a few others answer to boost your cred as a swell guy before I shared her answer. Plus, they went into more detail than Grandmama did.

I'm sure I've told you that I read all Gus chat entries to G-mama because it makes her happy. Her entertainment choices go "Matlock" , "Wheel of Fortune," and Gus chat entries, not necessarily in that order.

I read your original entry to her, and Grandmama smiled her toothless grin and said, "Oh, Gus, you did it again! Oops, I forgot to put my teeth in."

Grandmama so wants you to show up on "Matlock" as the guest criminal who charmed a bunch of Nanas out of their savings. You or Pat Sajak.
