Again, I don't believe we can be "friendly" by excluding players not on some top 100 list or the 40-man rosters. Somebody wants a player not on those lists shouldn't be dissuaded from selecting him.

The better method would be to take those top 100 lists and assembling those who did play a game or 10 the previous season. I have several players who probably won't be on your lists.

This has been learn-as-you-go this year. Believe it or not, my original prospect lists were JUST the spring training invites and 40-man roster players. It was expanded at nearly the last minute when someone quite correctly pointed out that it would be nearly impossible to complete a 50-man draft with just those players. Next year, I will expand the lists to include a significant number of other actual prospects from each MLB organization and they will be ready early enough that we can solicit additions from owners, just as we've done on the AVL lists in the past.

I didn't go back to try to find the original explanation for using the current limits on prospects, and I'm not sure how OnRoto compiles the available players it lists, but why exclude anybody? If an owner wants to draft the 100th best prospect on his own favorite team, why not? Why can't every player not eligible for the major league draft be eligible for the minor league draft?
