    Moncada should have been put back onto the team that drafted him.   Had to be an error.

    You would think right ?

    Seems to me to be way to much of a bonanza

    for a team who had the first pick by luck of the draw.

    I agree. It was an owned team as well...R1 was the league.

    Doesn't make sense.

    I totally agree. I had a hard time understanding how Byron Buxton was in the free agent pool in K17, a 24 team league. But for someone to draft Moncada with the 4th pick in the first round of the rookie draft and then cut him is inexplicable.

    Next year one of us need to speak up.  Pretty sure the manager either made a mistake, or the cuts were made for him.   His 2nd & 3rd round picks were still on the team.

    Can't think of any fair way to handle this situation now.

    Re: FA Draft day 1

    When would we speak up? It was a done deal when we saw Kez' results. A few years ago a manager dropped similar players and I pointed it out. I was told to butt out, that PB didn't tell managers who they could cut. I was assured that the cuts were final. I traded for the #1 FA pick and a few hours before the draft the 2 players were removed from the draft pool. I was told tough luck. Luckily the other manager understood and reversed the trade. With that precedent you can rest assured I'm keeping quiet in the future.


    BTW, it's 8:07 EST and the 3-5 rounds of the FA draft haven't run. Over 3 hours late.

    Re: FA Draft day 1

    Clearly the managers who owned Buxton & Moncada did not make their own cuts to 27. My guess is Moncada was drafted for a neglectful owner from the commissioner's list. I know the PB staff has a huge task getting all the UNM and neglected teams down to 27 in a very short period of time and can't ponder the pros and cons of every single move. However Buxton & Moncada are such big names I can't imagine that is was an oversight. I assume it was deliberate, perhaps as punishment for not or making the cut to 27 on time or perhaps as a reward to the pool of managers who are active and made their cuts on time..
