The Dugout I'll be starting shortly, but I wanted to give a quick update: Just for full disclosure, the commisioner team has decided to allow the Rockies to cut 1B Dilios Platea without penalty, despite him having multiple years left on the contract and the fact that it will put the Rockies into the red. The reason for this, is due to me not processing the trade that would have finalized this PTBNL deal promptly. During that time Caraballo (the SP that was the PTBNL) suffered a career ending injury. Due to the fact that the trade was never able to be completed, we're voiding the trade for the Rockies. That being said, we will no longer have PTBNL trades. A player that is drafted in the amateur draft will now have to stay with the team until the subsequent offseason. Once we reach the offseason, those players are eligible to be traded. If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask. The NBL Draft Pool was released last sim. I will have the draft loaded in Statslab following tonights sim. Since we only have 2 more days until it needs to be completed, I doubt we'll get through the whole thing, but I'll try to push through as much as possible.
