    Jacoby Ellsbury DROPPED!!!!!!

    I'm the commish of a league where Jacoby Ellsbury was just dropped today. Yes, you read that right. A team who is not in playoff contention (unless a serious miracle occurs) just dropped him this afternoon.

    The managers with the top 2 waiver spots are currently sitting 4th and 6th (top 6 make the playoffs). The guy who dropped him is 3rd in waiver priority.

    Should I step in and do something? Should I ask the guys with waiver 1 and 2 not to put a claim on him and tell #3 to take him back?

    If it was just some bum player I wouldn't care, or if the top waiver spot was owned by a non playoff team. But this could potentially affect the outcome if a playoff teams gets him and he has decent stats and impacts the outcome. Even a single run, or hit could be a difference maker giving a point.

    It's 12 man H2H league (non keeper)

    • Here is a link if anyone is curious. Took some digging but I found it.

      http://messages.fantasysports.yahoo.com/Fantasy_Sports/Baseball/threadview?bn=fan-baseball-drafttalk&tid=1257612&mid=1257829

      King Bax did this;

      His league was already up and running. A trade was accepted by 2 managers so he then changed the league rules from league vote to commish vote just so he can veto the deal because he didn't think it would have been vetoed if it were league vote.

      You call me a hypocrite, WOW

      I didn't remember why I would call someone names but after locating that post you deserved every word

    • Provide a link to your original post so we can all see what your post was and all the comments.

    • You don't change rules mid season without at least consulting the league and getting 100% approval first. They signed on to the league based on the original settings.

      If 2 teams legitimately agree to a deal then it's not vetoable in my opinion. As long as both sides agree and are not cheating then let it go. If one guy makes out better then good for him.

      People like you are the reason I don't do pools unless I personally know the commish, or have been in previous pools with him, or I am the commish.

      That's just dirty. Why is your opinion more important then the rest? If they thought they it was too outrageous then they would veto it themselves and don't you need alone to dictate what should and shouldn't be allowed.

      So now you should either change it back or do what I do. I set my pools I commish as commish vote, but once a trade is accepted EVERYONE have the right to contact me and/or post a message and say they think it should be vetoed. If within 2 days enough managers veto (same as is it were league vote) then it gets vetoed, no questions asked. This usually deters the idiots who just veto because they either don't know anything or the amateurs who veto everything they are not involved in just to be a pain.

      Either way you likely lost a lot of credibility in your league. Either change it back or give up commish to another manager.



      Quite strong words from a guy who intervines moves... I thought your original settings were no cant cut list... that allows guys like ellsbury to be dropped... but you know, its just bad commisionership to change something against the settings.


      By the way, that league has 19/20 active managers, soon to be 20, and I have all the credibility...

      I dont care what your prefrences are, theres leagues where you get 20 other people to join.. know em or not, no need to praise yourself... everyone makes mistakes, thats humna, but being a hypocrite is not a mistake.

    • ''Your the Commish'' too bad! Idiots like you make it dumb that independent people are commish in leagues Ellsbury has been the shitz and people have the right to drop whoever they want unless hes cheating and you can prove it shutup and leave it alone!

      • What a bunch of morons you last 2 are.

        1) I'm not after Ellsbury, not in a waiver pickup or a trade
        2) the guy with #1 waiver priority is not a threat to me, I don't play him again this season so him getting him is of no concern to me
        3) the guy didn't drop him because he doesn't want him, the guy is a noob and doesn't know any better
        4) I'm not going to let a novice move disrupt the league, it's not fair to everyone else

        I find it funny that just because I am the commish you assumed I was after Ellsbury and was jealous. You also assumed I'd offer garbage to get him. I DON'T WANT HIM. I never said it, nor implied it. If I wanted him I would have either drafted him or traded for him a long time ago.

        And judging a person based on his favorite hockey team just shows your stupidity. I was born a Leaf fan and will die one. I don't start disliking my team when they suck. I stick with them until the bitter end. And I certainly don't judge people characters based on the teams/sports they follow.

        Grow up!

    • Anyways, nice leafs logo... good to see a baseball commisioner show his true pride... a (awful) hockey team gettin repped in august by a baseball fan too... go figure.

    • why, as a commish, would you interfere with someones choice? if its a horrible trade, you should interfere because its one team guarenteed to get him... I think you are just jealous that you dont have that priority, because you think hes great, and you want him. If somone does not want the player, do not hop in and screw up his plans because he has a high o rank... If you dont like high ranked players gettting dropped in your league, put in a cant cut list. this prevents your jealousy because you took dominic brown with your #5 claim ahead of him... thats why I have FAAB. so you can take whoever, whenever within your limits.

      let me guess... youre going to try to offer him chump@#$% for ellsbury, aware that he doesnt want him.


      I am a commish, and Scott Baker was dropped in a 20 man league... the higheest % owned SP as a FA was 4%... I didnt try to veto a move lol... what commisioner does that... wait.

      if you have guys dropping hanley, kick them out for being a goof, but ellsbury has alot of question marks, so dropping him, 1st or last, isnt a crazy idea.

      I dare you to put ellsbury back, and then get him for nothing... you will lose all credibility as a commish for your league.

    • Jacoby Ellsbury SUCKS!!!!!!

    • its outta your hands . he made his bed . now hes gotta sleep in it

    • if you're the commish you can edit the teams by going to the commish tools. You can add/drop players from a team if you wanted to, or even freeze a team from making actions...not sure they would like you for it, but there's a reason Yahoo! allows you to do that.

    • I don't think it's your place here to do anything. That's the idea of having a non droppable list.
