Amendment Proposals

This is pretty much how I view the amendment voting process every year. Do with that what you will...

This page is intended to be a landing spot for all proposed amendments during the 2018 Salmon League season.

If there is something you’d like to see changed that will improve the level of competition or further aid in the overall enjoyment of our league beginning in the 2019 season, please propose it in the comments.

We will refer back to these proposals next winter and vote on any that have been endorsed by at minimum two additional members of the league. Any proposal that does not meet this requirement will not be put up for vote.

Please remember, when posting a potential amendment, be very clear in the change you’re looking to enact. Long, rambling, multi-faceted proposals are not likely to be endorsed.

Only put one proposed change per post. Do not include multiple proposals in one post or it is far too complicated for it to get accurately endorsed.

When endorsing a proposed amendment, REPLY to the original post. If endorsements are not in-line with the original proposal – reading an “I endorse this!” comment halfway down the page makes it impossible to tell which proposal you’re endorsing.

Additionally, when endorsing an amendment proposal – be very clear that this is what you are doing. A “yeah, that sounds cool” is not an official endorsement.

    I propose to remove triples and add strikeouts

    I propose to combine Holds and Saves and add Quality Starts.

    Argument – we currently have two stats (Holds and Saves) that are acquired only by relief pitchers. RPs contribute to ALL pitching categories where as SPs usually don’t have opportunities to acquire Holds and Saves. By adding Quality Starts you are implementing a category only contributed by SPs and therefore increasing their value and decreasing RP value but not completely diminishing it. With this change you would have SPs contributing to 6 of the 7 categories regularly and RPs contributing to 6 of 7 categories instead of 5 of 7 and 7 of 7, respectively. This balances out value in terms of SPs and RPs.

    Wins and losses aren’t a perfect state which adds to the fun. Cheers.

    I propose we randomize the schedule after the draft before the season starts. Yahoo appears to be defaulting to the same standard schedule on a yearly basis and — in the interest of keeping things fresh — it seems wise to randomize the schedule before every season going forward.

      I propose this amendment has potential and request to add a change. I propose the first week is a rematch of everyone’s last matchup from the playoffs. 13th and 14th team face each other.

      Champion vs runner up!

      Second or third if Adam’s was a second

    I propose an amendment that the commissioner has the right to alter lineups after the All-Star break if he feels the team is not participating or putting their best roster out there. If a player goes on the DL and he doesn’t have a suitable back up, the commissioner is allowed to pick up the top ranked player for said position.

      This shouldn’t need to be an amendment. Graves just go fix his lineup for him. Then punch him in the dick for not editing his lineup.

      I third this one

    Rather than the 13th and 14th ranked teams simply getting flipped and slotted between the consolation and championship teams in draft priority; the H2H record between the two teams missing the consolation round will determine who gets the higher draft priority. This — in theory — gives them something to play for down the stretch. Should they have a tie in H2H record for the year, the tiebreaker goes to the team with the better record over the final three weeks of the regular season.

      sure why not

    I propose we replace wins with qs


    • cracker jack September 21, 2018 / 3:47 pm

      I can support this


      • travismorfitt September 26, 2018 / 7:18 pm

        I’ll third it


Lemme hear it...
