Or just a smaller total number of players in our control. If we are expecting 8 player agents to keep up with 2400 players we are asking way too much. drop that down to 1,000-1,200 and it is more manageable. Either way I'm in. just pm me when we are ready.
What about a standard 20 man minor league roster. Keep who you want on it. Those minor leaguers that are not on anyone's 20 man will fall into the first time player draft for us. No waiver wire minor league pick-ups... yay nay?
It's something to think about. The way I see it, though, once the minor league rosters are established, there's not much maintenance necessary. Honestly the only thing you will be doing with them (after they're signed) is simply roster protection each offseason, the occasional release/sign of minor league free agents and sticking guys on the 40-man roster when you want to activate them. Your ideas are something to consider, for sure. It isn't as daunting as it sounds, though, to keep that minor league system. It's mostly just upkeep and then having the amateur draft each year.
As far as the player agents, I agree that it might be a bit harder on their end, but we could essentially make it where their interaction isn't necessary until a player reaches the majors / 40-man, thus cutting down on the amount of work for them.
