Secondary League

So, this is what I want to do. I want to create a regular major league. And once I do that, I want to create a secondary major league. That I have done successfully, they pull from the same FA market.

What is tripping me up is that I want them to have the same draft pool. So, I created the second league to have a draft pool that reveals the day after the signing deadline in the hopes that any players that were not drafted would then be eligible for that league as well, including anyone who didn't sign. That did not happen.

So, if I create a feeder league and have both leagues pull from that league, will this be the way to achieve that goal?

i wouldn't know about feeders. if it doesn't prevent you from that type of setup, it's a good start. it may not allow that config at creation, too.

a workaround would be a single league with subleagues, but then a custom schedule and playoffs.... maybe even a custom imported draft order -- first ~35 rounds are the teams from your main league and last ~35 rounds for second league.

your stats wouldn't be exclusive of each other though. all sorts of issues doing it this way. i'd try to make a small league with that feeder system and see if it allows 2 -- i don't think it does the more i think about it

other workaround is to make a fa draft for the 2nd league after the draft... this would include non-rookies, but there's stuff you could do to avoid that too.. like keep the 2nd leagues FA list empty, move unpicked rookies there then start the fa draft??

the players will be absolutely wretched in that second league... no exagerration: only TCR-touched players will have a chance to be horrible MLB players or better.

make sure that fa can't enter that league or exit or whatever you want too. heh, that would be another problem of the first workaround... unless you turned off fa and trades.

if even a half-decent player from your top league somehow got into that type of league, they'd be a monster statistically speaking. they'd be 2x as good as an average player at least.

I think that the easiest way to share a draft and FA pool is to create an Association.

Far as I know, the shared pools can be the only feature of the Association.
