Vote, Proposed change for next year

Thank you for all of the feedback on the rookie claim rule.  We will retain this rule after voting on a proposed modification.  Here is the rule change we passed last season:

  1. Each CABL team has priority on the new players on their corresponding MLB roster. Prior to the draft, all players that debuted in MLB are available to be claimed by the corresponding CABL team.  Each team may claim one of these debuting players in exchange for a 1st round draft pick (playoff team) or 2nd round pick (non-playoff team), as long as they have the draft pick required.

The proposed change will read:

734. Each CABL team has priority on the new players on their corresponding MLB roster. Prior to the draft, all players that debuted in MLB are available to be claimed by the corresponding CABL team. Each team may claim one of these debuting players in exchange for a draft pick (as long as they have the draft pick required):
Teams with the 8 best records:       1st round
Teams with the 8 worst records:     3rd round
All other teams:                                 2nd round

If tiebreakers are used to determine playoff/draft position, teams are assessed the lower applicable cost.

Please vote yes or no on the proposed change.  Voting closes Sunday, 8 PM eastern
