(CHECK LIST AND EMAIL ME IF YOU THINK I MADE ANY MISTAKES)
PLAYERS IN ORANGE ARE NOT ON THEIR CURRENT TEAMS MINOR LEAGUE ROSTER BUT ARE ELIGIBLE TO BE ROSTERED ON THE ML ROSTER OF ANOTHER TEAM. THESE PLAYERS MAY BE TRADED BEFORE THE DRAFT BEGINS. IN ORDER TO KEEP THESE PLAYERS THEIR CURRENT TEAM MUST USE ONE OF THEIR SEVEN SAVES OR MOVE THEM TO THE MINOR LEAGUE ROSTER PRIOR TO THE DRAFT (IF NOT RESTRICTED).
PLAYERS IN GREEN ARE ON THEIR CURRENT TEAMS MINOR LEAGUE ROSTER. THESE PLAYERS CAN BE TRADED AND ADDED TO THE MINOR LEAGUE ROSTER OF ANOTHER TEAM PRIOR TO THE DRAFT, THEIR CURRENT OWNER HOWEVER CAN SAVE THESE PLAYERS WITHOUT EXPENDING ONE OF THEIR SEVEN SAVES.
TYPE INDICATES WHETHER A PLAYER ELIGIBLE TO BE ROSTERED ON THE ML CAN REMAIN ON THE ML ROSTER PAST THIS YEARS MINOR LEAGUE DRAFT IN MAY. A TYPE 1 MINOR LEAGUE PLAYER HAS ELIGIBILITY FOR ALL OF 2015. A TYPE 2 MINOR LEAGUE PLAYER WILL LOSE ELIGIBILITY AFTER THIS YEARS ML DRAFT IN MAY.
RESTRICTIONS INDICATES WHICH TEAMS ARE NOT ABLE TO ROSTER THAT PLAYER ON THEIR MINOR LEAGUE ROSTER IN 2016 DUE TO THAT PLAYER APPEARING ON THEIR NON-ML ROSTER IN 2015.
Man, seven columns (right, right…okay, so maybe I was laying down when I typed this…ever think of that…seven ROWS….ud) and February isn’t even half over! This years nominee battle looks like it’s going to be epic.
VOTING RULES: Each owner gets 10 VOTES. Split them up anyway you choose. Write in nominees are allowed. By writing them in you’re sort of nominating them! Only qualification is the nominee has to have died between 3/16/2016 and 3/15/2017. That’s right, still got a month for potential memorialites to enter their candidacy. My advice though would be to try and hang on until after 3/15. I believe, and gotta hope, 2018 will be less competitive.
Voting rules note: If you assign more or less than 10 votes total your votes will be apportioned proportionately. EX; I give 500 votes to Sager, 2 to Prince and 1 to Miss Cleo. 500+1+2 = 503 and 10/503=0.0198807157057654, so Sager gets 500*0.0198807157057654 votes or 9.940357852882704…rounded to 9.94. Prince gets .04. MC gets .02! Could be the .02 that puts her over the top!!
Nominees are listed below in random order. Probably the only thing Papa Wemba is gonna win this year….first box honors! Click the name to read…Click the picture to watch.
I’m not doing a ballot this year. (Kind of a pain in the ass, to make, to read….I’m guessing to use) Just email your votes and feel free to change your votes anytime up until the polls close 3/15. I’ll try not to influence the voting this year with my personal biases, but lobbying is encouraged so feel free to stump for your preference(s).
I’ll just say it’s no easy thing to to make a nothing day seem worthwhile….let alone to do to do it suddenly. It’s kind of impressive.
Vote your conscience! Let’s make 2017 ???M.F.B.L. GREAT AGAIN! (In the sense that’s its been great every year….SO FAR!)
Ok…without further adieu….your 2017 nominees. (Scroll down slowly…. and hum Memories!)
