I'm going to say this one more time, because obviously some of you kiddies aren't getting it.
If you have too many players in your minor league system, some of them are bound not to get any playing time.
You should not have more than 10-14 players at any given minor league level.
- If a player is less than a 4 star player, and doesn't have any platoon splits that make him worthwhile in the majors, cut him.
- If you have more than one player at a position (2B for example) and one of them is a 5 star prospect and the other is a 2 star prospect, either move the 2 star prospect to another level or release him.
- If you have more than 5 SP at any given level, the other SP's won't develop. Make sure to move the extra SP to other levels or release them
- If you have a player age 26 or over who isn't capable of playing in the major leagues, release him
- If you have a ton of players in the minors, make sure you release a whole bunch in your lineup thread, I will make an example of how to do it below
Using the New York Mets as an example
Release from AAA
P Vince Cordova
P Pedro Feliciano
Release From AA
P Joshua Wyrick
Release from A
3B Ismael Velazquez
This is the last time I'm telling you guys why you need to clean up the minors. Hopefully some of you (Mets, Cubs, Tampa, Yankees, Cleveland, Detroit, KC, White Sox, Angels, Mariners, Rangers & Phillies) will listen to what I've said and fix up your minors heading into next year.
