Man, talk about a test of integrity

Postby ocmusicjunkie » Wed Jun 22, 2005 8:14 pm

So one of my best friends is a Marine reserve and is at drill for two weeks. He's also winning our league right now, and left me to manage his team while he's gone. Problem is he's facing my team this week. I find myself actually benching, starting, and spot starting the correct guys for him- even though he's killing me so far. :~(

Stupid ethics. I'm going to lose 7-3 this week just because I'm a nice guy. Strange situation to be sure... anyone else ever been a part of something like this?
Help please:

Harden- 2.15 ERA, 7.61 K/9
Peavy - 2.89 ERA, 10.10 K/9

I'm currently doing it right now as well for one of my good friends. He's playing my team. I just told him that I'm going to start every one of his hitters and every one of his pitchers. I don't want to be responsible for making spot start decisions, especially against my own team.

So that's what I've been doing...and I'm winning 8-1

:-D

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Afterall, we learned today that any time you have the opportunity to do something that may put your team at a disadvantage, it is your duty to exercist that opportunity......


...... Right? :-o

Just kidding. I've never been faced with this, but would definitely play it straight if I did. If I ever had to rely on cheating in fantasy baseball, I'd just stop playing.
