Need opinions on an issue in the league I commish

Postby AuburnTigers » Mon Apr 11, 2005 2:53 pm

There is a manager who has Dallas McPherson and he wants to put him on the DL, but McPherson is not on the DL because he is now playing in the minors. Should he be allowed to place him on the DL or use a roster spot to carry him? Any opinions would be appreciated

No, he can't put him on the DL b/c he is not injured. If he choses to carry a healthy but unproductive player, that is his problem.

That would not fly in our league. DL means DL. Minors means minors. He should be taking up a roster spot, or create a minor league roster spot.

yea, not up for debate. mcpherson is not hurt, nor is he on the MLB Disabled List -- either suck it up and carry him, or make the tough call and dump him.

DL in Fantasy Sports is tied to real life DL. That is a player can bust his wrist on Monday and not show up on DL until Wednesday because the team secratery forgot to fax the paperwork to MLB (or however it works).

Point is, like someone else said, DL is DL.

I agree the DL means DL not a minor leaguer.

I'm flowin' with everyone else. DL is DL. He gets to waste a roster spot with McPherson!

Agreed with everyone. He's got to burn a roster spot to carry him. B-)

Actually I think he was hurt, but instead of putting him on DL they sent him to minors. This sucks as far as fantasy players are concerned because they lose him.

I'm with everyone else. In our league you can't put a player on the DL unless they are actually on the DL in real life. Being sent to the minors (even to mask an injury) isn't the same thing.
