    Actually, in the guy's defense, most of his roster moves were perfectly reasonable, had it been a redraft league. The Fielder drop was probably a result of his not understanding it's a keeper league. At the suggestion of several other managers, I sent him a friendly email explaining it was a keeper league and why I was giving him a mulligan on that roster move. If he'd been even remotely civil, of course I'd have allowed him to drop Fielder again and remain in the league. In six years as commissioner, I believe I've vetoed one trade (and that was four years ago --I might let that one go now, if I could do it all over again). The manager in this instance received multiple warnings, but he just couldn't keep his temper under control. The other managers in the league urged me to ban the guy. That's why he was removed. I'd hardly call that dictatorial on my part.

    I know, right? Manly commissioners like you go ahead and allow managers to send crazy, profane, ranting, all-caps messages to everyone in a 20-team league without repercussion. Pansies like me, we ban a**holes like that.
