Yet another cheating commish story

Postby Ajax » Mon Aug 14, 2006 9:47 am

The "commish" in a private yahoo league I'm in decided to up the min innings pitched last week. He also decided that dropped players shouldn't have to clear waivers anymore, then immediately dropped R.Howard from a contending team and picked him up for himself 1 minute later.

If you ever find yourself in a league with yahoo ID 'garte13', quit while you can.

He obviously isn't that good at fantasy baseball so he turned to cheating. Sad, but some people will do anything to win.

this isn't as bad as the commish in my league who dropped Pujols, Soriano, Tejada, A-Rod, Beltran, Ortiz, Halladay, Santana, Papelbon etc... all to his team, and he just took me over for 1st place. The guy's a hack and I can't wait to beat him at season's end b/c he's already maxed out on IP.

What a waste of time - thats the only reason so far I like sportsline leagues - because at least Sportsline will stop player dumps or unbalanced trades (if there are enough vetos).
Help me out here? : http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2321827#2321827

Wow, I gotta hand it to you. You're a better man than I am. I would have dropped this league the second this kind of stuff started. You've got a heckuva lot of patience. And/or you like a serious challenge. Good luck; squash that ass.

This guy is a horrible fantasy player (34% success in profile) and hes a 16 year old immature kid. Should have checked up on the age of the commish before joining a private league with someone you dont know.
