A dumb question: can we use partial seasons in choosing the players from our 4 teams to make a squad ?
This does bring a risk of "cookies" into the mix, but just so everyone knows that is not my intention in this case, the only partial year I would want to use is Bobby Knoop at 2B 1969 - he has two modalities, one technically "full season" but in any case 473 PA hitting .224 but it puts me just 500K over the $85 mil budget cap (I am right that the budget cap is $85 million right ?), whereas his "partial season" of 388 PA hitting .229 but me just under that cap.
I would not want to use a partial season player without informing my league member colleagues so you can tell me if we have a policy on this. I tend to think we probably want to require full seasons only, which means I will have to go with a much inferior back up infielder, which would be Knoop's role on the team, or else send someone else down at another position and replace that person with a cheaper sub.
I can live with it either way. But can we get a ruling on the partial vs. full season policy. And a confirmation that the budget cap is in fact $85 million ?
