    Default **Posting Guidelines for Trade Posts**

    Please title your posts in this format:

    "2051 IND - SLC 05/08/14"

    In the body, please make sure to identify all players by position and full name, and for minor leaguers, identify their level. For draft picks, please identify the year, team, and round.

    Examples:

    2B Tony Ehmann
    2017 HOL 5
    RF Joe Unknown (AA)

    Thank you for helping me help you.

    *EDIT*

    After the trade is confirmed, please send your picks via the Draft Utility.

    *EDIT 2*

    I've adjusted the format above to include the calendar game year for the trade; i.e. if we are in the offseason prior to 2051, list that as the first thing in your title. Use single spaces before and after the dash separating the teams involved. Use two digits for months and days even if they are less than 10. Use slashes in the dates rather than periods or dashes (sets it apart from the team delimiter). Don't use dumbass date conventions like "5MAY2014". This isn't fucking Europe (sorry Ryan). - cuervo

    And, so that everyone gets a chance to see it...

    If you're trading a minor leaguer, please list not only his position, but what level he is at in your system. It's bad enough trying to find a MR on a roster that has 12 of them, but when I have to go digging through each level, it's a real pain in the ass...

    Did you intentionally bump a thread that had just been bumped, or is my mind playing tricks with me? Insert the dreaded "please advise" here.

    Bump ...

    Please please please include the level of your organization where a player can be found. Now that minor league teams are starting to fill up and there will be a fairly active market for prospects, this information is very very helpful. Nothing sucks worse than scouring 4 teams and 100 different players just to find the one guy I'm supposed to add to a trade.

    This also goes for listing the player's position. Please make sure you list him along with what the *game* says he plays, not where you might be playing him that week. If you slot a guy in LF because he has range there, but he's listed as a SS in the game, it makes it that much more difficult to track him down if I'm looking for OFs.

    You should have a rule that the trade will not be processed unless the information is included and is correct...

    I'll give it a couple of weeks to see if everybody listens.

    If not, then yeah, that's a great idea.

    yy - these used to annoy me quite a bit. Like I know who the heck your players are or what position they play or what level they're in. Bah! And the worst was when trades were written like they were flippin' word problems.

    Player A. Assgrabber gets on a train from Arizona along with $450k, scented oils and a Bette Midler CD headed for Wisconsin. It's winter there, so Assgrabber packed a couple extra pairs of long johns. Player B. Bergermeister boards a tour bus with a hot tub, two farsighted Brazilian girls, a carton of cheez whiz and eighteen boxes of fruit loops. Boy how that Bergermeister can party! He used to paint Fon Du Lac red, back in his younger days (he's going on 31 now, but is still in prime prospect range)!
