2017 WEEK #19

Gio Gonzalez helped Montreal play spoiler, as the Expos 
fourth consecutive victory knocked Boston off East lead


The postseason picture is beginning to take shape in the WFBL, as just three weeks remain now in the 2017 regular season.

Both Joplin and Philly have playoff spots clinched. The Tornadoes are on the verge of clinching the Kalas/Central pennant. 

Both Boston and Rayne are now on the verge of clinching playoff spots as well. Meanwhile, the Mack/West remains up for grabs, with four teams still very much alive.

Philadelphia took over the Owens/East lead again with a hard-fought 8-4 victory over Brantford. That loss crippled the Bisons playoff hopes, as they now trail the 2nd Wildcard berth by 2.5 games with just the 3 to play.

Philly regained the eastern lead with that win, combined with a victory by Montreal over Boston. The Expos fourth consecutive victory allowed them to play a bit of a spoiler against the arch-rival Dawgs.

Joplin lowered their Magic Number for clinching the Kalas/Central to one with a victory over Saint Louis. Joplin leads Rayne by 3 games with the 3 left, and defeated the Cajuns 8-4 in their first meeting. The two teams meet in the final week again.

The loss leaves the Cards now fighting to stay alive. They sit three back of Rayne for the 2nd Wildcard. Saint Louis does hold the tie-breaker, and the two teams meet head-to-head this week.

Georgia fought off southern rivals Alabama to barely stay alive as well. The Travs trail Rayne by 2.5, but lost the HTH series with the Bayou Boys, so would need to win out and have Rayne lose out.

Vancouver took the lead in the Mack/West with a tight victory over Portland. The loss puts the Pack 1.5 games off the pace now.

Las Vegas also won out west, leaving them a half game behind the Cubs and alone in second place. Omaha played spoiler by romping Spokane, dropping the Tribe into third, one game back.

Eugene lost their sixth in a row, and the Ems are now on the verge of elimination. They trail Vancouver by 3 games, and lost the first meeting. The two teams meet this week.

GENERAL MANAGER RESPONSIBILITIES

GM's MUST regularly check their team Roster, the Master Roster, the Transactions page, the DL, and the Draft pages here to ensure that ALL of their transactions reflect properly, especially in the immediate aftermath of any transactions.
 
Check to ensure that all players under your franchise control have your franchise initials next to them on the Master. Also that no player has your franchise initials whom you do not control.
 
Check that players on your roster in Majors and Minors have the proper MLB team assignment. Check that their position eligibility for WFBL purposes is listed properly for all Majors-eligible players.
 
Check that you always are within the legal limits of 25 in Majors, 15 in AAA, 10 in AA. 

In your Minors, ensure that hitters in AAA have not reached 1,000 Plate Appearances, and that pitchers in AAA have not reached 400 Innings Pitched or 120 Games Pitched. Also ensure that all players in AA have no MLB appearances whatsoever.
 
During the Roster Season, check your DL status, and ensure that if a player is activated in MLB, that you have activated him immediately in WFBL.
 
If a player gets traded, signs as a free agent, or otherwise changes their MLB team, ensure that your roster has been updated to reflect that new MLB club designation.
 
Check the CBS site to ensure that all player information there reflects properly. In-season this will especially include your current starting lineup. At all times, ensure that any players listed as under your franchise control actually are, and let the Commissioner know if any player you do control is not listed, but appears to be in the CBS database. In the off-season, ensure that any moves you make to clean up your roster are reflected at CBS as well. 
 
Let the Commissioner know immediately of any needed adjustments that come to your attention. Paying close attention to your individual roster and the entire league is what helps keep the WFBL running smoothly.
