(19:59:42) UNC- Brian: but you guys can go every year

(20:00:19) MD- Todd: I'm ready - might have to arrive several weeks early to start the planning process though

(20:00:27) UNC- Brian: in the fans of the acc league
(20:00:33) BC- Mike: sounds good to me Bob

(20:04:12) FSU- Greg: hi scott
(20:04:15) sndbommin: OK, hail hail the gang's all here
(20:04:19) VA Tech- Scott: greetings
(20:04:40) sndbommin: OK, so, a few preliminaries
(20:05:09) sndbommin: 1) Matt, I'd like to have a chance to talk to you about the Ortiz situation after the draft, at least briefly
(20:05:20) sndbommin: While we have everyone here, I'd like to take everyone's pulse
(20:05:21) Duke- Matt: kk
(20:05:46) sndbommin: 2) I'll be updating as we go along, so all owners should feel free to use that as a resource
(20:06:01) sndbommin: There will be even less excuse for selecting a player already off the board than usual
(20:06:17) UNC- Brian: I'll still find one
(20:06:21) sndbommin: 3) Are we OK with the Tony situation? Mike, Ryan, you have his picks and everything?
(20:06:31) NC State- Ryan: I am good for the minors...
(20:06:56) BC- Mike: yeah he gave me a list and a couple instructions
(20:07:03) sndbommin: OK, then
(20:07:06) BC- Mike: he's good to go
(20:07:09) sndbommin: Are we all ready?
(20:07:11) Duke- Matt: Are we determining the draft order tonight as well?
(20:07:15) UNC- Brian: lets do it
(20:07:16) BC- Mike: i think we should
(20:07:22) UNC- Brian: yes we should
(20:07:26) Miami- Bob: agreed
(20:07:29) FSU- Greg: we should
(20:07:32) MD- Todd: fine
(20:07:37) sndbommin: Can we take care of that after the draft?
(20:07:41) MD- Todd: OK
(20:07:43) UNC- Brian: yup
(20:07:43) Duke- Matt: yea
(20:07:44) Miami- Bob: ok
(20:07:51) FSU- Greg: ok
(20:07:52) BC- Mike: if CBS baseball works the same as football all Jim has ot do is click a button to randomly set draft order
(20:08:00) sndbommin: I'd like to do Mike's suggestion
(20:08:07) sndbommin: And I can press the button after we're done here
(20:08:11) MD- Todd: that is fine with me
(20:08:13) Duke- Matt: cool
(20:08:14) UNC- Brian: thats ne
(20:08:14) sndbommin: So everyone can see that I only press it once
(20:08:16) UNC- Brian: fine
(20:08:23) Miami- Bob: too easy;-)
(20:08:51) sndbommin: I don't think you guys truly realize the inside track Bob has on all rulings at this point
(20:09:09) Miami- Bob: it only cost me a week in the bahamas
(20:09:10) sndbommin: ;-)
(20:09:32) sndbommin: OK, if there are no further objections, I would like to proceed to the minor league draft proper
(20:09:36) UNC- Brian: we need a new rule, week stays in the bahamas cannot be traded for players
(20:09:40) sndbommin: Are there any other issues?
(20:09:48) Duke- Matt: nope
(20:09:50) Miami- Bob: :-(
(20:10:07) Duke- Matt: wait
(20:10:18) Duke- Matt: Scott got booted, he needs a re-invite
(20:10:35) sndbommin: Duly reinvited
(20:10:54) sndbommin: But it does look like he's already here?
(20:11:12) Duke- Matt: yea, he I'm ed me, said he was booted

(20:44:26) BC- Mike: i was going to take igawa if he didnt
(20:45:24) sndbommin: I would say that the first player with a pending marijuana charge has been taken, but I'm not SURE that's true

(20:52:34) Duke- Matt: Reid Brignac
(20:52:51) NC State- Ryan: that sounds like a scotch or brandy
(20:52:55) NC State- Ryan: not a baseball player
(20:53:19) sndbommin: I thought Carlos Gonzalez was a joke-- like, the next baseball player with that name, that's who I meant
(20:53:21) sndbommin: OK
(20:53:34) sndbommin: That concludes our first and only planned minor league draft!
(20:53:52) sndbommin: It was a long road to get there, and I hope that you all enjoy this phase of our league
(20:54:27) sndbommin: As a reminder to all owners, you may waive any player on your minor league roster and "sign" any player eligible for the minor leagues at any time
(20:54:32) BC- Mike: once the season starts can we add/drop minor league players on our own
(20:54:38) sndbommin: Yes, that's correct
(20:54:52) sndbommin: You will not need my involvement, and the transaction will show on the waiver wire
(20:55:05) sndbommin: If you pick someone obscure enough, the player's name will need to be entered
(20:55:18) sndbommin: It's my BELIEF that you can do that yourselves
(20:55:23) sndbommin: But I am not 100% certain
(20:55:27) UNC- Brian: No picking yourself up Ryan
(20:55:43) sndbommin: I suggest that we let Ryan spend a roster spot on himself
(20:55:54) sndbommin: I think that we would all enjoy any outcome
(20:55:56) NC State- Ryan: I almost drafted me but thought that would too conceited
(20:56:29) sndbommin: If you need to add a player, but you cannot, please e-mail the league
(20:56:41) sndbommin: I will attend to it, and the league will know your intentions
(20:56:45) BC- Mike: or post it on the message b oard
(20:56:51) sndbommin: Also acceptable
(20:57:10) sndbommin: Basically any public statement of intent will do
(20:57:26) BC- Mike: on CBS you can set it up so that anything posted on the message board will be emailed ot the league
(20:57:34) sndbommin: Oooh, I may very well do that
(20:57:53) sndbommin: Except only Matt and I have our current e-mail addresses affiliated with their CBS accounts
(20:57:58) sndbommin: We'll look into that
(20:58:29) sndbommin: Does anyone need a break?
(20:58:37) NC State- Ryan: let's do this

(21:01:10) UNC- Brian: no prob
(21:01:11) FSU- Greg: no thanks
(21:01:18) sndbommin: FSU declines
(21:01:25) sndbommin: 1 sec from me
(21:02:05) sndbommin: OK, FSU declines to protect
(21:02:23) sndbommin: Now NCSU is on the clock
(21:02:26) NC State- Ryan: NCSU selects Brian Roberts, from his own team
(21:02:38) BC- Mike: Georgia Tech selects K-Rod
(21:02:42) sndbommin: You do not get to protect anyone then

(21:30:28) NC State- Ryan: Cole Hamels
(21:31:10) sndbommin: GT would be on the clock with a protection pick
(21:31:11) UNC- Brian: either a great pick or a horrible pick....time will tell
(21:31:19) sndbommin: I'm assuming that he will continue to pass?
(21:31:26) BC- Mike: yep
(21:31:51) sndbommin: In that case, MD is on the clock
(21:31:55) MD- Todd: I'm gonna take my own guy here - Huston Street
(21:33:06) sndbommin: MD gets no protection pick
(21:33:10) sndbommin: MIA is on the clock
(21:33:37) sndbommin: For the record, I told Ryan that Hamels was not even on my draft board
(21:33:52) sndbommin: That's right, Daigle, I'm calling you out
(21:33:54) sndbommin: Grumpy
(21:34:01) NC State- Ryan: oh shit, bring IT!
(21:34:07) BC- Mike: he wasn't on tonys either :-)
(21:34:16) BC- Mike: and he was on tonys team
(21:34:21) NC State- Ryan: :)
(21:34:27) NC State- Ryan: I am secure in my pick
(21:34:30) sndbommin: For real, what franchise is Carlos Gonzalez on?
(21:34:32) NC State- Ryan: unlike Matt and his sexuality
(21:34:35) BC- Mike: AZ
(21:34:37) NC State- Ryan: ARI
(21:34:43) sndbommin: Mike knew
(21:35:03) BC- Mike: he is #20 on the prospect sheet i printed out
(21:35:28) Duke- Matt: 19 on mine
(21:35:38) sndbommin: Man, I love this league

(21:35:52) sndbommin: That is warning #1
(21:35:56) Miami- Bob: julio lugo

(21:37:48) sndbommin: MIA is out of picks
(21:38:07) sndbommin: GT is on the clock
(21:38:13) BC- Mike: G Tech selects R Zimmerman
(21:40:16) sndbommin: OK, I give

(21:40:35) NC State- Ryan: not mine
(21:40:56) Duke- Matt: not mine
(21:41:00) Miami- Bob: mine
(21:41:12) Miami- Bob: i'm out of pcks
(21:41:37) UNC- Brian: did you protect 2?
(21:42:03) sndbommin: MIA has selected Alex Rios, Julio Lugo, and Danny Haren
(21:42:07) sndbommin: He is out of picks
(21:42:28) sndbommin: And Zimmerman was on his roster
(21:42:34) sndbommin: In a way that confused Google somehow
(21:42:37) sndbommin: Kudos
(21:42:51) sndbommin: BC is on the clock
(21:43:00) BC- Mike: BC will select Corey Patterson
(21:43:03) Miami- Bob: and laroche
(21:43:34) FSU- Greg: he is picked by FSU
(21:44:20) sndbommin: Ignoring the LaRoche thing for a second
(21:44:30) sndbommin: BC's 9th selection of the 2nd round is Patterson
(21:44:32) Miami- Bob: sorry
(21:44:42) sndbommin: GT is on the clock with a protection pick
(21:44:49) sndbommin: I assume he's still passing?
(21:44:49) BC- Mike: pass
(21:44:52) sndbommin: Indeed
(21:44:56) UNCTarHeelFan42 left the room.
(21:45:09) sndbommin: He doesn't need to be here, I'm over it
(21:45:27) sndbommin: In that case, BC is back on the clock with the 10th selection of the 2nd round
(21:45:41) BC- Mike: Howie Kendrick 2B
(21:46:07) sndbommin: Was Howie on a roster?
(21:46:47) UNCTarHeelFan42 entered the room.
(21:47:10) BC- Mike: not sure
(21:47:12) NC State- Ryan: no
(21:47:15) sndbommin: MD is the only one that matters
(21:47:28) sndbommin: And he was not on MD
(21:47:28) MD- Todd: not on mine
(21:47:30) BC- Mike: G Tech has one more pick ot make
(21:47:43) sndbommin: Right, but you've passed on the keepers I think three times already
(21:47:46) Duke- Matt: not mine
(21:47:49) sndbommin: Not you, but...
(21:48:03) BC- Mike: he has a pick ion the 3rd round
(21:48:07) BC- Mike: not a protection pick
(21:48:28) sndbommin: Right
(21:48:36) NC State- Ryan: all right boys, great draft, I'm out for the night
(21:48:41) sndbommin: Peace Ryan!
(21:48:45) NC State- Ryan: thanks jim!
(21:48:45) MD- Todd: see ya
(21:48:46) NikolaiDaglevich left the room.
(21:48:55) sndbommin: I am on the clock for the 1st selection of the 3rd round
(21:49:00) sndbommin: And we are almost done
(21:50:14) sndbommin: Aaron Harang
(21:51:20) sndbommin: GT is on the clock with the 3rd selection of the 3rd round
(21:51:59) BC- Mike: he has josh barfield rated next i think?
(21:52:06) sndbommin: Barfield is available
(21:52:09) BC- Mike: him then rolen
(21:52:21) sndbommin: If you want to copy and paste in an IM to me, I can cross reference
(21:52:39) BC- Mike: barfield is next i am just not sure he would take him this high
(21:52:39) Duke- Matt: givem, barfield and if he's the last he can switch out rolen by tomorrow
(21:52:51) Duke- Matt: last pick that is
(21:52:51) BC- Mike: give him barfield them
(21:52:53) BC- Mike: then
(21:53:30) sndbommin: FSU is on the clock with the 6th pick of the 3rd round
(21:53:34) sndbommin: Next to last pick gentlemen
(21:53:52) FSU- Greg: Jason Giambi 1B NYY
(21:54:56) sndbommin: Wish I had a protection pick left
(21:55:03) sndbommin: But instead I was just kidding
(21:55:11) sndbommin: That was the 4th selection of the 3rd round
(21:55:31) sndbommin: And now MD will cap the supplemental with the 6th selection of the 3rd round
(21:55:45) MD- Todd: OK - I'll finish it up with Todd Helton - he's got a great first name
(21:56:37) sndbommin: OK, that wraps it up for the supplemental!
(21:56:37) Duke- Matt: alright hit that draft button Jim
(21:56:47) sndbommin: One second on that
(21:56:50) sndbommin: I will have to log in
(21:57:49) MD- Todd: what part of the league page can we view this
(21:57:52) sndbommin: Hmm, Mike, where's this button?
(21:58:13) BC- Mike: you go to draft setup and click for random draft order
(21:58:13) sndbommin: Draft results are available at
(21:58:27) sndbommin: And
(21:58:32) Miami- Bob: get your tickets guys, we'll do next years down here in the sunshine:-)
(21:58:46) MD- Todd: i'm in
(21:59:16) sndbommin: I am definitely in!
(21:59:20) sndbommin: Mike, I don't see that
(21:59:24) Duke- Matt: I really thought I'd be able to keep both Delgado and Damon :(
(21:59:32) sndbommin: It's my directive to get that determined tomorrow
(21:59:37) sndbommin: I will do so
(21:59:41) BC- Mike: i am looking at my football one right now hold on
(21:59:43) Duke- Matt: Damon has been the glue for 3 seasons
(21:59:55) BC- Mike: do you have a tab called "set up"
(22:00:02) Miami- Bob: your done, Matt;-)
(22:00:02) BC- Mike: in red
(22:00:09) sndbommin: Yup
(22:00:17) Duke- Matt: lol
(22:00:28) BC- Mike: go to the draft portiojn
(22:00:30) BC- Mike: portion
(22:00:44) sndbommin: OK, I've selected "By Entering Off-line draft results"
(22:00:50) FSU- Greg: I guess I did a poor job managing things . 4 of my players were taken.
(22:00:53) BC- Mike: at the bottom in blue you can click "set draft order"
(22:01:08) sndbommin: Matt, to me, the Ortiz thing IS an eligibility question
(22:01:15) sndbommin: Is he really a 1B?
(22:01:16) UNC- Brian: nobody wanted my guys....are we sure i placed second?
(22:01:17) Miami- Bob: 4 from me too, Greg
(22:01:25) FSU- Greg: that means i could have traded for some picks
(22:01:32) FSU- Greg: oh well
(22:01:33) sndbommin: I had one guy selected, and I wish I could protect two of them
(22:01:37) sndbommin: This league is wacky
(22:01:49) Miami- Bob: as it should be
(22:01:54) sndbommin: I love it
(22:02:10) sndbommin: Matt, do you think Ortiz is a 1B, really?
(22:02:16) sndbommin: No judgement
(22:02:20) UNC- Brian: Here is my thoughts....either we lower position eligibility for all positions like ESPN (1 game) or we gotta keep our settings
(22:02:43) FSU- Greg: how many can we now keep going into the draft? 10 right?
(22:02:56) sndbommin: Yup, can keep 10
(22:03:05) BC- Mike: do you see at the bottom of the draft page "advanced features" and then links to some other things. thats where the set draft order thing is
(22:03:08) sndbommin: Anybody that stayed on your roster, you can "pre-select"
(22:03:15) Duke- Matt: If he has to play DH because it is his postion, then others who didn;t play DH should be able to play that postion. I don't think we can change that so it's moot.
(22:03:16) UNC- Brian: Its unfair that Matt can play Ortiz at 1B and others may have just as many starts at another position and not get eligibility
(22:03:41) Duke- Matt: it's just we need to be aware certain players can no longer play 1B
(22:03:44) Miami- Bob: when we opt to keep 10 are we locked into that at the draft
(22:03:50) Duke- Matt: and need to draft accordingly
(22:03:53) sndbommin: Got it!
(22:03:57) sndbommin: OK, one sec
(22:04:01) UNC- Brian: agreed, i got thome
(22:04:03) Duke- Matt: I'm not asking to change eligibility
(22:04:32) sndbommin: But, in a way, you are.
(22:04:36) UNC- Brian: sure you are, if ortiz didnt play at 10 at 1B, then he isnt eligible
(22:04:40) sndbommin: The eligibility rules haven't changed
(22:04:43) Duke- Matt: I was just stating the new rules. I prefer espn's nad wanted it changed but it can't so we just need to be aware
(22:04:45) sndbommin: Ortiz did play 10 at 1B
(22:04:48) sndbommin: Those aren't new
(22:04:59) UNC- Brian: So why isnt he eligible then?
(22:05:08) sndbommin: Either ESPN was lackadaisacal in their enforcement LAST year
(22:05:08) Duke- Matt: 20 games is the rule
(22:05:12) UNC- Brian: Oh, I see
(22:05:23) UNC- Brian: maybe we should lower it to 10 then?
(22:05:29) Miami- Bob: 10 during the coming season though?
(22:05:35) Duke- Matt: we can change it too 10 but that's not fair to Thome and hafner.
(22:05:37) sndbommin: My suggestion was to lower it to 10 during the coming season
(22:05:43) sndbommin: And we can discuss during the year
(22:05:49) FSU- Greg: I think if a player didnt play in the filed all year he should only be a dh. but if played at all at one position that should be his position.
(22:05:51) UNC- Brian: yeah thats true matt
(22:06:09) sndbommin: I think this accomplishes both the goal of not upsetting the balance of last season's competitiveness while allowing us to decide what we really thing
(22:06:11) sndbommin: think
(22:06:22) BC- Mike: i think there should be a minimum and i am fine with 10
(22:06:33) sndbommin: Greg is saying what the rules actually are in most league
(22:06:35) sndbommin: leagues
(22:06:40) sndbommin: Hafner, Ortiz, etc.
(22:06:42) UNC- Brian: Like Matt said, that doesnt seem fair to Hafner andThome
(22:06:44) BC- Mike: i think even frank thomas played first a couple games but he is definitely a DH
(22:06:45) sndbommin: They are only eligible at DH
(22:06:56) sndbommin: That's what the eligibility rules are for
(22:07:04) UNC- Brian: Sure, but it is a change in the rules
(22:07:05) sndbommin: If they play enough at 1B, they are eligible!
(22:07:09) UNC- Brian: Frm a change in the league
(22:07:10) sndbommin: Just like that
(22:07:12) Duke- Matt: Waht eevr we decide it fine, i thought we could change it like espn, since we can;t it's moe of an awareness issue
(22:07:14) UNC- Brian: That we never voted on
(22:07:25) sndbommin: I don't agree, Brian
(22:07:27) UNC- Brian: Yes, I thought we could keep it like ESPN?
(22:07:37) sndbommin: The rules say 20 games in the season before, or 5 games in the current season
(22:07:43) UNC- Brian: What rules?
(22:07:53) sndbommin: Ortiz and Thome will be eligible after their first two interleague series
(22:07:56) BC- Mike: was Hafner eligible at 1b
(22:08:00) UNC- Brian: What rules?
(22:08:03) UNC- Brian: Fans of the ACC?
(22:08:09) sndbommin: The rules I got when I joined the league
(22:08:12) sndbommin: Yes, that document
(22:08:16) Duke- Matt: I say we just leave it, since Ortiz is the only player that would change.
(22:08:26) sndbommin: Those rules, however, as I told Matt, were inconsistent
(22:08:40) sndbommin: They delegated to ESPN *AND* listed something specific
(22:08:55) sndbommin: The delegation seems to say "Ortiz can play anywhere"
(22:09:04) Duke- Matt: Just make sure everyone drafts a 1B/CI . Thome, Thomas, Hafner, and Ortiz are possibleproblems
(22:09:08) sndbommin: But the specific requirements say "No, he is a DH"
(22:09:10) UNC- Brian: Where in the rules does it say that? I am not questioning you, I am just curious
(22:10:16) UNC- Brian: I do not see it anywhere in our current rules
(22:10:21) UNC- Brian: But I might be missing it
(22:10:50) FSU- Greg: have we picked the draft order yet?
(22:11:02) BC- Mike: jim can you post the draft order when you get it
(22:11:29) Duke- Matt: If we switch to 10 ortiz plays first but the others still can only play DH. it'snot worth changing. I just needed to know how to draft. Ie. i couldn;t draft Thome
(22:12:34) sndbommin: The draft order has not been posted
(22:12:36) UNC- Brian: I just think we should be keeping ESPN's eligibility unless we do a rule change or someone can show me where in the rules it has position eligibility requirements
(22:12:48) sndbommin: Brian, I will look for those
(22:12:53) sndbommin: I cannot find them right now
(22:12:58) UNC- Brian: I am on the website
(22:12:59) sndbommin: But I am 99% sure they exist
(22:13:06) UNC- Brian: Isn't that the official rules?
(22:13:09) sndbommin: They are
(22:13:11) UNC- Brian: ok
(22:13:20) sndbommin: And if they are not there, we will proceed as if they were never there
(22:13:34) sndbommin: And Ortiz, et. al will get the most lenient treatment possible
(22:13:47) UNC- Brian: what about thome?
(22:14:00) UNC- Brian: and what about players with multi-eligibility?
(22:14:01) Miami- Bob: not him;-)
(22:14:02) sndbommin: For the draft order, can someone get to the page where they can see what the draft order currently is?
(22:14:11) UNC- Brian: I just want to be clear, thats all
(22:14:14) sndbommin: Thome will be eligible if he played 1 game at 1B
(22:14:20) sndbommin: That's the most lenient possible
(22:14:33) sndbommin: Last year, or "this year" the 2007 season
(22:14:46) UNC- Brian: ok, and multi-position elig?
(22:14:55) sndbommin: For whom?
(22:15:04) sndbommin: I am sure this thing is there
(22:15:07) sndbommin: I've seen it on the wiki
(22:15:13) sndbommin: But don't think it's linked correctly
(22:15:19) sndbommin: We'll see
(22:15:32) sndbommin: Any way you cut it, it's my mistake somehow
(22:15:38) BC- Mike: jim i dont think we can see the draft thing because you have an off-line draft set up
(22:15:42) sndbommin: So we'll see what we decide as a league
(22:15:52) sndbommin: I changed that a moment ago, Mike
(22:16:22) Duke- Matt: On ESPN, there is no DH. Anyone who plays DH only essentially is a 1B
(22:16:44) BC- Mike: i dont know after you click "set draft order" it should show up right on your page
(22:16:47) sndbommin: How on earth does that make sense?
(22:16:48) Duke- Matt: The flex position is utility. That is the on;y difference
(22:16:52) sndbommin: It does
(22:16:55) sndbommin: Mike, it does
(22:17:10) sndbommin: Does everyone trust me that I am about to click "Randomize Order" for the draft position?
(22:17:17) Duke- Matt: yep
(22:17:17) sndbommin: We have a quorum
(22:17:19) BC- Mike: yes
(22:17:21) MD- Todd: yes
(22:17:26) Miami- Bob: yes
(22:17:31) UNC- Brian: yes
(22:17:42) BC- Mike: just post copy/paste the order into the commissioners mesage afterwards
(22:17:49) BC- Mike: so we can all see it
(22:18:24) sndbommin: OK, can do
(22:18:37) sndbommin: Dammit you guys, I got 1st pick
(22:18:46) sndbommin: I swear that's how it turned out
(22:18:50) BC- Mike: its ok i trust you
(22:18:57) Duke- Matt: remember we start drafting in round 10 now...I do believe
(22:19:00) sndbommin: Anyway
(22:19:08) sndbommin: And I'm going to be protecting someone anyway
(22:19:12) sndbommin: So it doesn't matter
(22:19:19) sndbommin: OK, that's done
(22:19:34) UNC- Brian: right, so pick #1 is 1.1
(22:19:39) sndbommin: We'll discuss the eligibility thing after I look for the current rules on the wiki
(22:19:49) sndbommin: I may have some off-line questions for you, Matt
(22:19:56) Duke- Matt: k
(22:19:57) sndbommin: So I know how to present the issue in general
(22:20:07) BC- Mike: whats the order other than you with #1
(22:20:10) sndbommin: But otherwise, we are all wrapped up
(22:20:12) sndbommin: 1 sec
(22:20:47) sndbommin: UVA, NCSU, VT, Duke, UNC, GT, MD, BC, FSU, MIA
(22:21:03) Duke- Matt: sweet
(22:21:07) Duke- Matt: later
(22:21:14) MD- Todd: see you guys later
(22:21:25) BC- Mike: jim if you have time could you send tony his picks via text message. if not no big deal
(22:21:32) NYCWSTONES left the room.
(22:21:32) BC- Mike: i dont have my phone witt me
(22:21:44) FSU- Greg: so if i keep a player I forfeit my pick in round 10 and pick 2nd in round 11,correcy?
(22:21:54) FSU- Greg: correct?
(22:21:57) BC- Mike: i think thats right
(22:22:03) Duke- Matt: yep
(22:22:11) sndbommin: Yup
(22:22:14) UNC- Brian: thanks everyone

(22:23:07) Duke- Matt: good job
(22:23:44) sndbommin: If you say so
(22:23:54) sndbommin: If I don't find this eligibility thing, I'll be PISSED!
(22:23:57) sndbommin: I've seen it!
(22:24:03) sndbommin: Not that I care how the ruling goes
(22:24:07) sndbommin: But I thought it was there
(22:24:21) sndbommin: It's a personal order issue
(22:24:47) Duke- Matt: we should have eligibility guide lines, we always had them. we just need to determine how we handle the DH now
(22:25:16) Duke- Matt: it wasn't a position in the past, it had nothing to do about number of games played
