Also, I see where Weebs has Darvish already. How far in advance can you grab players who aren't yet in pro ball?

Once they're added to the player database, which is up to the fangraphs people.

Really? Huh. Wonder what the logic is there.

I asked Ottoneu and they said it's so we can prep easier for the draft...

Trading is kind of CRUCIAL so I can prep for the draft.

And then what? Is there a waiver period to bid on them?

Can we not cut players either?
If you want a 50% cap penalty to last all year, you can. No more free cuts.

Nick....if they are in the database they'll be eligible to be nominated at the auction. I won the Darvish auction last year. When players get added, they're immediately available to start the bidding on. Bidding during the season is a 2 day blind auction where the highest bid gets the player. For example, as soon as Anthony Rendon was added, I started the bidding and won him for X amount of dollars. You can also ask the ottoneu staff to add somebody and they usually will.

That's right before I have a huge brief due, which kind of sucks, but I'll try and get it done early so I don't have to worry about it
