No, im talking with another owner right now and he is warming up to the idea. It would have to be a number the affects all teams however, not just agaisnt him. It wont just hurt one manager that way.

120 moves? Is that all? He's only half the fantasy manager compared to NZF. :-D

This year I might crack 100. I've been really slacking. :-/

You have max games and innings. No need to punish active managers. It's infinitely better to have an active player than an inactive player.

I hate to say it, but maybe you guys just suck, relatively speaking. I mean no offence, but realistically, you do have to consider the possibility. You might start by making more than 40 moves. I'm guessing most folks here get several multiples of 40 fairly easily.

The only thought that comes to mind is that your league isn't deep enough, which means there are too many useful players on waivers and FA. If that is the case, I would increase the bench or add owners.

Another thought comes to mind: how are waivers set? One way to give owners a little more time to react is to increase the number of days a player is on waivers when dropped or added to the league. That way, everyone in the league will have time to react. So instead of going directly to FA, you can set that to 1 or 2 days on waivers first and then people have to claim from waivers. That way, it isn;t critical to be online when a player is added and eveyone will have a decent shot at a player as long as they are active.

Do you charge money for the pickups? My league charges $1 a pickup. Charge per pickup, problem solved. ;-D

Again, with a 1250 max inning cap and games play cap, what more do you need? Its not like this is h2h and hes making 20 moves a week to maximize wins and K's (which doesnt work bc ur era and whip will be bloated, but thats beside the point). This is roto where you need quality games from your pitchers. If this guy is keen enough to pick out the right matches and have the time to scout prospects and see which one is worth an add, great for him. And having a max move does penalize him more bc if you set a max move limit and hes the only guy going over it this year, then clearly this is directed against him and hurting him more than the other inactive or less active managers.

Personally, I see this thread just as a emphemistic way of asking "is it ok for me to make rules so this managers doesnt win the league every year."

If you guys can't keep up like this guy, maybe you should go to a weekly league. The other guy can find some people more on his level.
