I would like to respectfully disagree with the Austin decision. Austin has been an OF for most of his career and even played there this season. He has also started in the OF for the Yankees since being called up. Onroto carries him as an OF and most reports address him as an OF. Can we look at this decision again?

Bob

I checked with Rick Smetana, cause I originally thought (and bid) on him as an OF. Until he plays 5 games in the Yankee OF, he only qualifies at 1B.CI,UT. He did not qualify at OF at the time of your bid. At this time he has play 4 games at 1B, and only one at OF. Until if/when he plays 5 games at OF, he does not qualify there.

Here is the quote from me to your LA when he asked about it:

Rick Smetana wrote:According to our rules:
Code: Select all
5.4.4 A newly available player has position eligibility based on the following: Players who have not appeared in the Major Leagues in the current season are eligible at the position at which they have appeared the greatest number of times in the current season in the minor leagues or a non-US league for which fielding appearances are documented by a source deemed reliable by the Realist. Pinch appearances (either hitting or running) are ignored in all cases.


And taking that a step farther...
Code: Select all
2016   24   2 Teams   2 Lgs   AAA-AA   NYY   1B   76   73                     
2016   24   2 Teams   2 Lgs   AA-AAA   NYY   LF   9   8                     
2016   24   2 Teams   2 Lgs   AA-AAA   NYY   OF   13   12

So by our rules, Tyler Austin is ONLY eligible at 1B/CI/DH in our format, as he did not meet the required 20 games in the OF to be eligible in the OF. Once he plays 5 games in the OF in MLB, he will then be eligible.

What I did in FELLER, was deny the winning bid for Austin because it had him positioned in the OF. I have asked for the runner up bid to be posted, so I can either approve or deny it. If both had him listed in the OF, then he will be a first-come, first served free agent.


Thanks Rick!

Rick


Thanks. I understand the rule and , hey, it is what it is, but in this case I think the player should qualify at both positions. Austin is clearly an OF and a 1B. In fact, he only started playing 1B having been an OF his entire career previously.

I guess that is the way it goes.
