    Default Refusing Minor League Assignment Thoughts

    To add a wrinkle to our well running machine, what do you think about adding back the in-game ruling where players with a certain amount of Major League experience can refuse assignment back to the minor leagues? I know we removed that provision a long time ago (maybe at the beginning), but it might add to more interesting roster decisions.

    Thoughts?

    Not sure I'm a fan with guaranteed contracts and the DL/increased injuries. If I had to bring a salaried guy up for an injury and he didn't want to go back down, I guess I just have to drop him? This might dissuade me from carrying those guys and bidding for them in the first place.

    Also, would that mean we'd have to start dealing with a waiver system? I mean, this might be interesting somewhere, but I'm not sure if it fits here.

    Unless we're taking the whole kit and kaboodle in-game, I'm not in favor of this. Many of us wouldn't sign the minsal depth guys to begin with in that case, so they'd be out of fake jobs completely.

    I assume this means you're against fake unemployment insurance.

    No, I've been fake paying that for 58 fake years. That's cool.

    I played with this feature enabled in another league, and it was terrible.
