    I had a couple (for the time being) questions regarding roster sizes and foreign relations for the NPB. We could use this thread for any/all discussion for our league, just thought I'd start it and get some things (hopefully) figured out.

    1: Is there a reason to have a sh*t-ton of foreigners in the minor league system? With the major league restrictions, I can understand holding onto a few guys, but it's unrealistic to have more than 3 or 4, isn't it?

    2: Along the same lines, the international complex seems somewhat pointless to me. It just seems like a numbers game, where you get 50 forruns, and hope 1 or 2 become superstars. Or is there a deeper meaning? :D

    Looking forward to a new season with you gents! Good luck this off-season!

    The CPU manages the whole foreigner rule horribly. There's really no reason to have more than a couple of foreigners in the minors as injury backups.

    There are Japanese international amateurs who show up as well as foreigners. Not worth having a bunch of foreign guys there, but some of the Japanese ones are pretty solid.

    Good to know. Apparently I inherited the effing UN in my minor league system.

    Gotta ask NeuroticTruth on that one. I wouldn't mind seeing it changed to 3 for position guys, but there is no need at all for 3 pitchers, especially with how our draft classes have been.

    Yeah, should've clarified - was talking about position players.

    My guess is he will put it to a poll.

    To be perfectly honest, I don't know a TON about the Nippers. Would increasing the foreign limit help the big budget teams? I just haven't had the time to dig into the financials and ins and outs of the NBL.

    Not necessarily. No different than them overspending to get stud Japanese guys.

    I think it would actually balance it a bit more since solid foreigners are cheaper than solid Japanese guys.

    I noticed a couple FAs with unknown nationalities, I assume they still count as foreigners?

    Depends on whether you can forge their birth certificate.

    What are the rules, if any, with regards to trading with CPU teams? Or is it not allowed.

    Personally I'm ok with it but the trade would have to be approved by the commissioners. And I wouldnt expect for us to approve any trades with any big name players in them. Those are just too hard to judge.

    Again though, that would have to be something we discussed as commissioners before we actually said that was allowed. I'm just talking in general atm.

    Only 2 people have voted for NPB all-stars thus far.

    Shit, I didn't realize they had StatsLab updated so we could vote.

    Attaboy, Dan. Good job listening to my advice on what team to pick. 3 or 4 godly young guys to build around.
