Plus Players Rule Update: Season 12

Plus Players Rule Update

Here's a quick summary: Marlins, Royals and Blue Jays are now Plus 5, Reds and Rockies are now Plus 3, while the Yankees, Dbacks and Mariners are now Plus 2. All other team Plus player situations remain the same.

(From this point down, copied and pasted from the Rules page, which is now updated and correct.)
Just like auto league favorite teams, Owners will get to select 4 seasons from their franchise to create their team (except Cubs, Giants, Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, Astros*, and Indians* who each get 3 seasons).

Three franchises will be able to choose FIVE additional players outside of the selected years to add onto their roster:
Kansas City Royals, Miami Marlins, Toronto Blue Jays

Two franchises will be able to choose FOUR additional players outside of the selected years to add onto their roster: Pittsburgh Pirates, Tampa Bay Rays

Eight franchises will be able to choose THREE additional players outside of the selected years to add onto their roster: Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Angels, Milwaukee Brewers, Minnesota Twins, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants

Six franchises will be able to choose TWO additional players outside of the selected years to add onto their rosters: Arizona Diamondbacks, Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers

Nine franchises will be able to choose ONE additional player outside of the selected years to add onto their rosters:
Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, Detroit Tigers, St Louis Cardinals, Washington Nationals

*Cleveland Indians and Houston Astros will only be able to select 3 franchise years to create the team. Year 4 will be a Plus One (PC allows Cleveland and Houston to pick 4 seasons--so owner will only be able to take One player from a 4th season).*

11/11/2019 Pitch Count Possible Glitch?gbacci
Thanks I am pretty sure I have caught the issue and fixed it - that was a serious brain teaser...

The next outcome was a strikeout, so the count jumps to 3-2 and those two extra strikes were not getting added after the stolen base attempt. Nice catch!
