PiratesGM: Sweet, good to know since I had no idea when it was haha. Thanks

Commish: You can still make deals in August if the players are minors only or if you clear them through August waivers on the boards

PiratesGM: Did I kill Albert Belle? Should I option him back down or is it not gonna impact his development much if he stays up and struggles?

BravesGM: different people have different theories on when players are ready to be called up. Some call them up quickly and others wait until they are going to be all stars in their rookie years. Both have pro's and con's. it's always unlucky to have talent drops

PiratesGM: Gotcha. His ratings definitely aren’t amazing but I feel like he’s been worse than expected so far? Is that due to him batting cleanup potentially?

MarinersGM: Future production is based in part on past stats, so I always try to avoid having prospects play really poorly in the majors (meaning, I send them back down if I don't think they're about to turn it around).
Sept 18, 2019 15:53:32 GMT -5
MarinersGM: but the flipside is if you think they might play a little better to raise their overall numbers, I'll leave them up for a bit to have a fair chance.
Sept 18, 2019 15:53:55 GMT -5
PiratesGM: Good to know, thanks. Is it fair to say someone like Belle might turn it around to a degree, or is it not even worth it and I should send him down?

AsGM: i’ve never seen a clear pattern with development. It tends to be random. Generally speaking, a prospect will usually hit hs talent numbers after 3-4 years in the minors depending on how raw he was coming in and if he doesn’t have talent hit before then.

CardinalsGM: Commish - can you put Ricky Horton back on my team, please? Oakland and I never agreed on a trade for him and I've been without him for 2 sims now.
Sept 20, 2019 11:11:29 GMT -5
AsGM: That’s odd. You countered my offer and I rejected yours. Didn’t see him sitting in my DFA. Probably would have ended up if FA after next sim.

BravesGM: I've got a player who says he accepted my extension offer through the site but it doesn't show in game... help please

Commish: Will get those fixes in
