Dropping Vlad!!

Postby skibum » Mon May 23, 2005 4:19 pm

I just looked at CBS Sportsline list of most dropped players, and sitting there big and fat at #5 is none other than Vlad. The guy goes on the DL and OVER A QUARTER OF CBS OWNERS CUT HIM. I know there are dumb people playing fantasy, but i had no idea it was this bad.

In the past week, Vlad has gone from being owned by 100% down to 73%.

Stunning.

They probably have Frank Thomas on their DL spot and didn't want to drop him. I can understand dropping Vlad then. ;-7 All #1 waiver spots are rejoicing.

That makes me sick. Why even join such a league. What a joke.

They are trigger-happy, but there is still a good shot Vlad is done for the year. I just wouldn't cut him til I was sure. :-o

I wouldn't say it's a good shot. More of an outside chance. More than likely, he's going to miss between 2 and 3 months...

Until the MRI comes back and we hear it's worse than what Vlad thinks it is, the chances are he'll be back in a couple weeks. To say "there is a good shot Vlad is done for the year" or "he's going to miss between 2 and 3 months" is entirely pre-mature. Until the doctor examines him, Vlad is the best resource for estimating how much time he'll miss... not cafe members.

even if he only misses 2-3 months, that leaves september and a little bit of august. While I wouldn't drop him, he probably would miss the entire year and even if he doesn't I think he'll have a little trouble in September getting going again.

Not an excuse, because I personally wouldn't drop him until the tests were in, BUT from what I've heard some of those CBS leagues have no bench and no DL slots. Also I believe they have to set their weekly rosters by Monday morning. Sounds like these owners decided to field a full roster rather than wait on Vlad's medical reports? Personally I woulda played a man short for at least a week. :-?
