Wow Chris have you really got nothing better to do? I am a third year player. who loses as much as he wins and play as a hobby.As for your other hurled and stupid insults you could not be more wrong. I like Drama -free leagues and you are Drama's Poster child. You are arrogant..opinionated and apparently paranoid. go #$%$ on someone else's shoe..... But thanks for the bump.

Tenth Avenue Freeze Out (ID# 10528
I completely agree that it "Looks fishy" I was hesitant to grab him on that basis. 10 team league. I played with fou of themn last teas as well The guy wandered in and talked up th Braves all through the Live draft I think he is just a kid,
Reaction in the league has been suprisingly muted.
One guy was criticizing me for slappi the dimwit and I actuallly publically apologized for the way I told himm to knock it off.. But that same owner siad the rules are the rule and it is nobody's business that he dropped him.
The dimwit also chimed in and said "show me the rule book where it says I can't drop anybody I want to drop"
Only one person said I should give him back."Really come on he is on the no cut list. You should put him back on the fools team who dropped picking up is not the right decision. We are missing settings and a lot of scoring categories how thought out was the league when you started it? Just my opinion"
The guy did not realize that there was not a no cut list in our league. and wanted me to add BB to the hitter categories after the season started.
Here is how I resolved it.
"OK First of all Hammersticks called me out for jumping down Chief Knockahome's throat for the Drop and he of course is right. I did so thoughtlessly and I should not have, I am sorry.
My reaction was based on a situation I saw last year when a player decided to dump his entire team and we got into a major row over the "put him back..... you put them back first" crapfest that ruined the league. The truth of it is as both Hammersticks and Chief pointed out. It is not against the rules to dump a marquee player for someone who is not.
Since this was not a player dump I ultimately felt like the resulting dominoes have to stand. I would honestly have a very hard time as commish taking away a player from someone who picked him up honestly and forcing him back on someone who has stated he does not want him. It's his choice and it's done..
I reacted harshly and for that I am truly sorry but the drop and pick up of Cargo stands."
since I posted last night.
The reaction to the decision has been completely nonexsitent. I think that is probably due to it being so early in the season.
He does not want him back and I have some folks in the eague saying it is his choice since there is nothing in the rules against it. I have others saying I should not get to keep Cargo since I am commish.
I think the fact that I picked him up whole commish does not matter. I would have a hard time taking cargo away from someone lucky enough to have grabbed him and forcing him back on a team who's owner does not want him. Right?
So I am commisshing this league and thid player drops CarGo to pick up wait for it... Jordan Shafer ...I am looking for a spare OF and find Gonzales just sitting there. Obviously I grab him. and go look at the Tranlog to find out who dumped him. Like I said Moron.
I immediately send out an email to the the league saying this is a bonehead play and if he dumps anyone else I am dumping him from the league.
Another player points out that I should apply the Can't cut setting, Which I do.
So here is my problem I don't need Cargo but there he sits on my roster. I would love to flip him for a 1B where I am really weak. Should I give him back to the moron? If someone else had grabbed him rather than me I would be hard pressed to say "you can't have him give him back to the moron". I was just luck enough to be in the right place at the right time.
What's the proper thing to do?
I would argue that you are actually 1-1 to statr the week. you own holds and the other guy owns save....But you have modest plusses on ERA and WHIP. And plus-plus in other categories because you got more value on your early picks. The point ultimately is that it costs a hole lot more to compete in the Save category then it does the Hold Category.
I would also argue that because folks tend to want the Glamor boys that it is going to be difficult to win the Save category week in and week out High Cost and diminished return vs Low cost and better options with the second half of your draft. seem like a no brianer
Yeah but you :owb a cat week in and week out and you strengthen other cats by not grabbnig closer and instead getting a great 4th OF or a solid C/1b or a guy who might get you 15 more wins
If your league has holds as a category it turns out that Set up men are actually a better value than top tier closers. Inniings are the same and oddly WHIPs and ERA are actually a little better in comparing the top 5 of both types of RPs.
The nice thing about them is that they are typical ranked in the 300s whereas the closed of any merit are under 150 in rank.
That means you can delay stocking your 'pen until later rounds and use the open pick for better bats or better SPs. Am I wrong?
