No more trades after August for 2019 season

https://www.thescore.com/mlb/news/1734985

Will there be an option to have this implemented in OOTP 20? Not sure if this was something that could already be done in 19.

*Update*. Since posting this there now seems to be vast rule changes. Most occurring in 2020,but one that stands out this year is the all Star election day. the game is close to being released so not sure if this will come the way of a patch or be implemented in ootp 2021. Lots to work on for sure.

Waiver trades are broken as is, so there's no reason to implement this as an option.

would think there be no trades during playoffs. As MLB has something in place saying no trades during playoffs as to not draw away from the playoffs as they prefer the news being on the playoffs and not some big deal trade. Might be a unwritten rule but still most if not all teams obey it.

If I start a game in 2019 and in season two (2020) I want to change the active Roster size to 26, and reduce the expanded September Roster to 28 that won't be a problem for my game if I make the changes between the 2019 and 2020 off season will it?

Seriously, how is the MLB going to police injuries here? I admit I haven't been paying much attention, but what's to stop relievers from faking injuries? All the other rules I'm totally cool with but this one is just dumb.

I would say if a pitcher leaves before his 3 batters because of a supposed injury then he should have to miss the next 2 or 3 games at least. That would stop them faking it.

But how would they know for sure? What if a guy has a legit cramp and has to be done for the day, but is good tomorrow? This is adding a ton of subjectivity that baseball doesn't need.

Pretty sure you can make such changes between seasons if you wish. Or any other rule change you want. Flip into Commissioner Mode and change things to your heart's content.

I definitely feel that the 3-batter minimum is going to be abused in the same way that the 10-day DL is being abused by the Dodgers. How many times will a lefty come in to face Blackmon only to suddenly have a "sore arm" when Story/Arenado are due up?

You can't force them into a DL stay for those. The best you could do would be to charge a team with one of their mound visits, and the league would have to come in hard to prevent any sort of tampering on the rules.

To me, it spoils things too much. Honestly, even just going to staying for 2 batters would effectively get rid of the LOOGY, and prevent a lot of mid-inning changes. Or if you want to prevent mid-inning changes, just go all the way - count any mid-inning pitching change as a "mound visit" under the current rules, and there's your limit. You now have 5 mound visits and/or mid-inning pitching changes per game, and that's it. Teams would have to think very carefully about doing 2 or 3 changes in an inning, but they still can be as strategic as necessary.

Easy. If you replace a pitcher before his batters are up due to injury, then a stint on the DL is automatic.



Having said that this rule is bunch of crap. Baseball continues to be ruined. Fixing what ain't broke.... there used to be a saying about that.

10 day DL is a rule change for 2020 its going back to 15.

But the stats and evidence point to the LOOGY demise that's why the 3 batter min is pointless. The amount of relievers used is going up on the same line as strikeout increased.

With teams carrying 13 pitchers (ootp trend?) they only need 5-6 innings from a starter. Then its a bunch of 1 inning pitchers who can pitch 4-5 out of 7 days.

So not sure what this 3 batter minimum is suppose to fix. Time? what does it shave off 15 minutes of game time? Makes no sense.If they want to shave off time just make ever ump wired to each other and to a film booth and all have smart devices tablets bluetooth . Have drones and sensors everywhere. Cleats, uniforms, hats, bats, balls, bases, foul poles and gloves.

No more arguing. Instant results for everything. Just go full tech. I bet you could shave off 30-45 minutes.

I don't really think they need to shave off time or even worry about it. MLB brain trust thinks length of games is messing with their bottom dollar. It's not game length. Its that there isn't 1 player besides Harper who has any personality in all of the MLB.

If Harper would have signed anywhere else besides the rabid fan base of Philly no way his Jersey goes to #1 of all time beating Lebron. And sold something like 10 million dollars in tickets in 2 or 3 days. Is starting to be covered by more media then just baseball writers too.

Besides baseball media no one covers baseball players. Every type of media covers the NFL and NBA players. Grandmothers know who Lebron, Steph Curry and Tom Brady are.If you don't have die hard baseball fans they couldn't name the top 5-10 players. Or maybe even name 5-10 players not playing for their home team.
