Little help needed, re: service time
In the first year of my new dynasty, there was a rule change that absolutely screwed me royally; service time required for arbitration was lowered to 2 years from 3, here is my question:
If a player has 1 year and 8 days of ML service time, what date do I have to keep him in the minors to make sure he doesn't achieve 2 years in that season?
It would be 11 days after opening day, right?
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and lose it all
And it's unnerving
How just one move puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell

Season length is what, 184 days or so? Service time requires 172 days for one year.
So since he already has 8 days of that 2nd year, he can only accumulate another 163 days to stay under two full seasons.
184 - 163 = 21 days
(replace 184 with however long your season actually is)

I think nine days off the ML roster would prevent him from reaching 366 days (two years of service time).
But he'll probably still reach arbitration, as a "Super 2" (or a "Super 1" now, really).
