what's proper protocol for posting the signing of a player to a minor league contract?

if it's about a player with major league experience, should it posted in the major league forum or the minor league forum?

if it's about a player signed to a minor league contract but with an invitation to major league spring training camp, should it be posted in the major league forum?

if the player has major league experience but isn't invited to big league camp, post it in the general thread for minor league transactions?

the signings of aaaa-type players will start soon! inquiring minds want to know!

Great Question. My two cents are if they have relevant Major League experience put it in the Major League forum as more people read that forum. If it is a nobody, with really no major league experience, throw it in the minors forum. But, like I said - just my two cents. Lets have the mods chime in.

A new minor league transaction thread for the 2014-15 offseason is now in place.

There's no formal protocol for folks to worry about, but if a player is signed to a minor league contract with no big league camp invite, one would think there is no need to start a new thread specific to that signing on the Major League Forum.

But use your judgment, let's say Jeremy Hermida is re-signed to a minor league deal but with no camp invite, maybe there is a Major League thread already in place discussing 2015 organizational outfield depth or something.

It's a tough call for some of these signings as common sense arguments can be made for locating discussion in either forum. That's why, as Mass Haas says, there's no formal protocol.

When there are two essentially similar threads, a moderator might try to condense discussion into a single topic. How that's accomplished would be a judgement call on the part of the individual moderator. If discussion is locked, moved, or merged, members shouldn't feel like they did anything "wrong." It's just a matter of directing traffic.

That’s the only thing Chicago’s good for: to tell people where Wisconsin is.

Quite often I'll post the news in both forums. The minor league transaction thread we would prefer to maintain mostly for historical reference and not so much a discussion thread. If a player becomes "discussion-worthy", we'll always direct folks to where they can discuss the signing more in-depth.
