I received the instructions from Mr. Carney on how to post the Tier 1 Free Agents on the Free Agency tab.  Those will be up sometime this weekend.

More announcements will be out shortly in regard to the EC discussions and our offseason schedule as we progress towards 2019 DMBO free agency.

Thanks!

Quick update on Tier 1 Free Agents...

Ran into a technical issue this weekend, so I was unable to get the Tier 1 Free Agent list populated.  I have some time this morning to hopefully work through it and have the list posted as promised.

Apologies,

Further updates...

I have recruited Kris (Red Sox) from the EC to assist with the database issues we are experiencing.  He has a little more experience and idea what he's doing, so this should help.  Unfortunately it will not be until Saturday morning when he has some time to dig into the issues.

Again, this is a sincere apology falling behind with the Tier 1 Free Agent posting.  As we work through this we will also be on the road to adding Winter Draft selections to rosters.  We are still progressing towards our 2019 DMBO Free Agency, and those schedule updates will come after we complete the tier 1 posting.

Thank you all for your patience.

Many thanks to Kris and Jon, but we finally have the Tier 1 Free Agents listed within the GM Desk (Free Agents Tab).  We are working through getting the Winter Draft selections updated to everyone's rosters.  That should be completed shortly.

The EC is working through a few final details before we start announcing definitive timeframes for Arb/Option decisions and when Tier 1 Free Agency will begin.  Thank you for your patience during this EC transition.
