    Exclamation FYI regarding trades before Opening Day sim

    I will try something new this year and am willing to process trades BEFORE I run the Opening Day sim.

    The only way I will do this for your particular trade is:

    1. Both owners agree in the trade post; AND
    2. You provide me detailed instructions via PM on how to "slot" the incoming players AND how to replace the outgoing players. If I'm unsure what to do, I will not process the trade. Teams must have 25 players on the Active Roster after I process the trade and slot the players. It would be best to put the traded players on the DFA list.

    Bump. I need both owners to say in the trade post, "process this before the sim." I also need a PM with clear instructions as to how you are going to have 25 players on your active roster and where people get slotted. I need no ambiguity when I'm running the file.

    shaw, are you going to import first and then process all the trades and do all the manual manipulation?

    Edit - inserting my instructions here in case the PM doesn't get through:

    BEFORE TRADES PROCESSED - THIS IS MY EXPORT ON THE SERVER YOU ARE GOING TO IMPORT:




    After the trades are processed, I would like for the following changes to be made:

    Demote LF Hisanobu Aoki from ML to AAA.
    Demote SP Terry Hamilton from ML to AAA.
    Demote C Hector Herrera from ML to AAA.


    Leave them unslotted in AAA and that's fine - I don't care about them. Those three make spaces for the three players I just acquired: C Adam MacWatters, SP Geoff Cullins, and LF Raul Huerta.

    C Adam MacWatters replaces C Hector Herrera wherever he appears on my export: Starting Catcher vs. RHP+DH Hitting 9th and Backup Catcher vs. LHP+DH
    SP Geoff Cullins should be slotted as SP3, moving SP Ethan Lochhead to SP4 and SP Hector Hernandez to SP5.
    LF Raul Huerta should be slotted as Starting LF vs. RHP+DH Hitting 4thand Backup LF vs. LHP+DH.
    Against RHP+DH, Nate Ladd is moved from Starting LF to Starting DH and remains hitting 3rd.
    Against RHP+DH, Bud Ward is moved from Starting DH to Starting 3B and hits 8th.


    These changes will have the following effect on my lineups and pitching staff:



    Also extra note: SP BJ Jenkins, SS Manny Rivera, and C Adrian Sanchez, all in AAA, should be reset to MLC.

    Thanks!

    Nice post. You mind if I submit this as a thesis paper after I'm done?

    This was originally for 2045, but I'm willing to do it again this season.

    Bump for trading deadline 2053. If you make a trade to be processed before the sim, provide explicit roster instructions for me via PM.

    Bump for 2056 trading deadline. I'll process trades before the sim, so I need instructions.
