i called yahoo, got forwarded to like 8 people. finally got to the guy in charge and he said hed look into it but i know hes just saying that.

so i called major league baseball, was on hold for like 45 freaking minutes and FINALLY got to talk to the commissioner and he said HED look into it but again, i think hes just saying that to end the conversation. i really do.

finally i called pedro and told him to start pitching better and he said maybe.

Actually, I was being serious. I can't remember who the player was but it seems like it was earlier this year. It may have been someone like Matsui or Sheff. Anyway, they were on the Can't Cut list, someone emailed Yahoo Customer Service and it was literally fixed that day. Now maybe it's because it was already in the works, but it can't hurt. It certainly gives you a better chance at getting Pedro off the Can't Cut list than whining about it here does.

But if Pedro said he'd pitch better then maybe you don't want to cut him. I know when I called Mark Teahan and told him I needed some help to beat wr earlier this year (I also may have mentioned that wr made some derogatory remarks about him ;-7 ) he single-handedly carried me for a week. B-)

The Can't cut list exists so n00bs or bad sports in public league can't unbalance the whole thign by dropping top-tier players, giving an unfair advantage to those with ww priority. For players who've just suffered long-term injuries, they'll take them off if you ask them. Not likely to happen with guys who've just got niggling issues, though.

I always thought league that the league commissioner could take off the Can't Cut list during the year, no? :-?
