Pls Y! save us by removing J. Johnson from can't cut list
The "Shallow leagues" comment is never useful... More appropriately, these people sound like they are in highly competitive leagues. Meaning, the opposite comment could be directed back towards you - "You must compete in a really noncompetitive league if you can sit on a wasted roster slot during the final weeks of the season."
Fact is, every league is different, but few can afford to just go a player less than their opponents at this point in the season.
Try it. Sit one of your best pitchers, for no reason, for the next 3 weeks. Are you going to win? Are you sure? Wouldn't you rather play that person, or, if they will not play at all for the remainder of the Fantasy Season, replace him with someone that *will* play? Or, is your league so "deep" that you can somehow manage to maintain a competitive advantage while rostering a pitcher that will not play again in 2010?

At this point, the only people that can afford to sit on JJohnson are in Keeper leagues, and I hope most of them have the DL slot available because he's definitely worth it.
