What should I do with a friends line up ?

Postby Whomper » Sat Mar 31, 2007 11:16 pm

A friend of mine left 3 days ago for his honeymoon and asked me to look after 2 lineups for him in 2 yahoo leagues..He said I dont have to worry about add drops just to start his hitters and pitchers. Now in the past few days Quentin , Sanchez have gone on the DL and Cantu got sent down leaving him with little reserves..I know these guys were gimpy before 3 days ago but he was very busy with the wedding etc and bottom line is I am wondering if I should DL his injured guys and pick up some new players for him . I see some decent options but Id hate to plug in some players and them to tank.

Do with his lineup as you would with yours. DL his guys and pick up some nice players from the wire. If they tank tell him to set his own damn lineup or to go screw himself. At least you tried, right? I know that's what I would want.

If there is no max # of moves, DL them and pick up a couple other guys, because he can always drop the guys you picked up right away when he gets back.

I'd do what smoovethug suggested even if there is a maximum number of moves. Part of his max allotted should be used for situations just like this.

Hook him up & put in an active lineup.Pick up the guys that you like off the wire & put them on his bench.Put his reserves in the place of Quentin,Cantu & Sanchez.This way,it's still the players he drafted are playing for him.The guys you picked up are no harm to him.

Would that qualify as baseballs before blue balls?
