    I haven't had a chance to look yet, but as long as we're on the subject, I'd like a duplicate Babe Ruth please.

    Looks like there was some confusion- what I meant by "my 1B Chick Tolson" was, "my 1B Chick Tolson." Sorry not to have been more clear.

    I signed Monte Labelle to a minor league contract on 12/18/26, and for some reason he's got a major league deal paying him $9,250. Can you fix this please thanks??

    Bump?

    More weird contracts:

    Pablo Mendez, Frank Brockmeyer, Earl Campbell, Red Carter, Petter Krosby, Erik Soderqvist, and Jack Smeltzer should all have minor league contracts. These guys are all indy bids who have never been placed on the 40-man roster and I always specifically bid to buyout their contracts and convert them to MLCs (and I still have the PMs saying so!). Mendez didn't even have a salaried contract to convert. I don't know what the problem is, if it's related to that weird thing where the minors thinking its a different year or whatever, but can these get fixed?

    Some MLCs probably got flipped when I was monkeying with rosters while setting up the feeder leagues. I can reset contracts for anyone who got switched.

    should have MLCs...I'm always very careful with those...and, obviously, I always make sure I get 3 indys every year :-)

    Cecilio Pogiali
    Auguste Brunet
    Harry Williams
    Edwin Castillo
    Vance Page
    Jud Moulton
    Ambjorn Malmstrom
    Henri Berthier

    Everett Hunt should have been an MLC but I'll leave him on the 36 man roster to keep things simple. However, he was never on that roster in the past but now shows 3 years on it, which is why he's theoretically out of option years. Can you erase those?

    Thanks!

    Uhhhhhh the minor league schedules are all kinds of messed up. :\

    In my organization:

    AAA Lansing and AAA South Bend have no games scheduled, but there's an All-Star game set for June 14.

    AA Cedar Rapids and A Mobile have no games scheduled.

    S A Aurora has one game scheduled for April 27.

    R Lewiston has games scheduled on April 30 and June 21 with an All-Star game set for June 14.

    Every affiliated minor league has passed its Opening Day. Yet, in all of them combined, there have been a total of 11 games played so far.

    I'll just say right now that if schedules can't be generated, I am completely in favor of aborting the start of this season as far back as necessary to generate schedules (although I guess that means Hotblack has to re-do the stuff he's been working on ). Not having any games played makes the minor league system completely useless and makes it nearly impossible to evaluate (or even develop) prospects.
