I have been kicking this around, and I am looking for your input:
Rookie limits are 50 IP ar 130 AB, but that is for a 162 game season. I was thinking of cutting them in half to become 25 IP or 65 AB as the criteria to be used for making claims on prospects from other organizations for the 2020 season only.
Please discuss and let me know where you fall. I would like to wrap this up one way or another by Sunday. Thanks, and hopefully we still have MLB next week.
Rookies are getting called up to fill players with virus symptoms/injuries moving to the taxi squad. In some cases I think probably sooner than antipated in this abnormal season. The flip side though is where I have a concern is that they get the virus and are sent back down and/or Veterans recover from Virus and reclaim their spot which could send them back down if options remaining. This I think could lead to our rosters in a situation were we have these players on our MLB rosters and if player gets sent down we lose the option of placing them back on MiLB rosters and they end up taking space on MLB roster. Bottom line after hitting the minimums in in a normal season with more time to evaluate I'm good with either with promoting or losing them. In this shortened season with the variables of a virus I do not feel comfortable making such of a decision.
I also agree that you will likely see guys earlier than you normally would, making for tough decisions whether to add rookies to your roster that may not be ready for the MLB yet, hurting your chances for a championship or losing them to another team. Even though I open to the idea to change limits in a shorten season, I would say leave as is.
This is probably a moot point anyways, season most likely lasts another week before it gets shut down. Players need to start following the rules about wearing masks and social distancing on the benches.

Half the league has already weighed in and said leave as is. You have made good points and changed my opinion. Thanks for the input, and we don't need to wait longer. It will stay at 50/130. Have a great weekend!
tommy: 6 teams out of 30 not playing today. 20% of the MLB cancelled due to COVID19. damn

Neil: Not good. Marlins have 14 players/staff test positive so far. I think if the Phils/Yanks game was in New York they might have played, but since Marlins played in Philly, they got to make sure everything is disinfected.
