    Manny Ramirez Question

    IMO, a team owner should be able to replace Ramirez. The Dodgers DO NOT go with a 24 man roster til July 3rd, do they???So why does a fantasy team go a man short? Is there an answer to that question that contains mature rationale?? If a cab driver has his drivers license suspended by the state, the cab company can not replace that cab driver??? C'mon.

    How about this for an idea? Yahoo has not provided a place for a suspended player and there is not a spot to place Ramirez. But, couldn't he be placed on waivers but noted by the league Commish to all team owners as suspended by that league commish and therefore NOT ELIGIBLE to pick up from waivers or the free agent list? The team that put him on waivers can pick him back up after the waiver period has expired. By July 3, he's moved from the waiver list to the free agent list and the original team owner could pick him back up. Isn't this possible? Maybe not a well liked idea by other team owners but they should remember that the next suspended player could be one of their own.
