Maybe this will help you ROB. Yahoo posted about week or two ago where they had updated their custom league settings to include all categories used in that league instead of the standard league format. So in leagues like mine where we have 26 categories rankings changed a bunch. There were a lot of fantasy owners that complained that it appeared as though Yahoo didn't do any testing of the update. Many were saying SB were really affecting players rankings.
I'd drop him. Although I play in custom leagues with a lot more categories, 26, so punting SB are not as important. In a 5x5 it is a more difficult decision. I always play to win now.
Use your player list to evaluate your players or click on stats season on your team page. It will rank your players. I always have a catcher and would probably drop a bench player like Mazara or either pitcher you mentioned.

TJ has given the basics and if you are in a weekly league none of it really matters, your lineup doesn't change all week. If you are in a daily league, there are two types, change for tomorrow or change today for add drops. For active lineup changes for the day I like to review the active roster several times a day as some players don't get ruled out until just prior to the game, I still miss some of them. Keep playing and you'll figure it out. Your mistakes will teach you. Try streaming it teaches newbies a lot.
Try to stick to numbers but it is difficult. I love to have players from the Royals, Reds, or Orioles but when I'm drafting it usually comes down to what position I need. I don't like to reach. I don't like to have to many from my teams because I know I have a tendency to over rate them.
Owners have the right to veto for whatever reason they want. They don't have to approve or veto for all the same reasons you do. Fair to one owner may not be fair to another, using numbers or potential. Lots of owners love to trade the hot player for a proven player knowing the hot player will cool down. I dislike those types of owners. They justify short term success as a reason to trade up. I run my own leagues and always use commissioner powers and let everyone know at the beginning of the season the trades have to be fair by the numbers and not simply short term numbers. I'm a more lenient when a highly ranked player during the draft is goes cold because many times it is an undisclosed injury the player is attempting to play through.
Sounds to me like it is "YOU" that is attempting to trade by looking deeper, that is an unfair justification most times. IMO let it go and keep trying instead of getting upset at them.
