I think everyone need to take a look at the pirates and the Dbacks roster. Both have been able to keep getting high draft picks and stash elite players in their minors. They are both bulidng elite teams through a flaw in the rules. I think we need to have a league discussion over this. Because if we don’t address this now, won’t anybody have much of a chance at a ring as soon as they promote these players.

I’m sure everyone here would love to build these all decade teams that they are building. But too many good owners make this tough to do. So how in the heck has this happened?

I propose loss of rookie tag to be based solely off rank say 85+ must be signed to a contract. And I feel like there should be repercussions for allowing teams to have 99rk players suiting in their minors for multiple seasons.

I do a bit of both. If I have a deep, balanced bullpen then I like to assign roles - seems to even out the innings between 4-5 players and everyone is fresh. If I have 1 or 2 considerably stronger relievers than the rest, I'll set it by priority and get as many innings as I can from the top 2.
