2043 PROSPECT REQUESTS - UPDATED NEW RULES, (ending the import of prospects after 2044 season)
These teams can request one prospect for the upcoming 2043 season. These prospect rights can be traded, but make sure you know who you are getting (or giving up rights to) and confirm it's valid. You can select from 2018 or 2019 season stats, and the player must be 28 or younger. Please check the league first to see if the player you want has already been selected, and if they meet the flexible criteria laid out in the rules. If they were previously added as a prospect created from minor league stats (pre-2039) you can select them, but I will change their name slightly after importing them. If you previously requested them and they are still on your team (never traded), you can replace them with the new version (for example, you had requested 2018 player A, and in 2019 he was better). If the player is since on a new team he counts as whatever team he is on the day he’s requested. Best also to check with me before trading for one, make sure who you want meets requirements. I prefer you not change once imported, but prospects lock in when season starts or if they play in spring training games.

Lol. Fine. I misread your statement above when you said he won 6 straight 7 game series. Either way, a well earned victory. I’ll just be quiet here at the bottom of the heap! 🤭🤐😆😂🤣😂
