WFBL Unlimited Minors Moves Still On
From now through the end of February 2017 is a great chance to sit back, evaluate your Minors system, and make even small tweaks that could pay off big down the road.
Now is the perfect time (actually you should be doing it constantly) to do a full review of your Minors system.
Where do your players rank on the major evaluation system lists, rankings, and ratings results? Have some of the prospects you previously valued gone downhill? Might there be 2-3 or more out there who could, even incrementally, improve the system?
Through February 28th, you have the ability to make all the moves that you like to improve your Minors system with eligible players.
Remember, you cannot add any players who have any MLB experience whatsoever. Check the league Rules at our home site for all the qualifications, and check with the Commissioner on any necessary clarifications.
Over the next few weeks, take the time to look at things. Do some research. Put in a few moves. Every piece of dead wood that you dump, every spark of upside that you add, potentially improves your squad.

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.
