I can echo what has been said here: it it our intent that if you add a player and then drop him on the same day, he goes to FA, not Waivers. If you see this is not the case, please let me know. As long as this is working properly, I'm not entirely sure what this guy would be trying to accomplish.
Hey, Sports Genie -- does this apply to the guy who dropped the player, as well as the rest of the league? That is, if I dropped a player I just picked up, can I go out and snag him again just like every other manager in the league? If so, I think there's a potential problem there. I've thought about this scenario --
a.) I've got an available roster spot.
b.) I see the player out there that I definitely
want for the long haul.
c.) But there's somebody else -- maybe a starting pitcher with a favorable matchup -- who I really want just for tomorrow.
d.) But I'm really worried that the guy I want long term will be gone by tomorrow.
So I'm wondering if I can do this (another lame trick):
a.) Pick up the guy I want long term. Now I got him, nobody else can snag him.
b.) Late at night, after normal human beings have gone to bed, I drop the "long term" guy, and pick up the one I want tomorrow. So now I've got that good pitching matchup.
c.) Early in the morning, before normal human beings have gotten up, I go drop the temporary guy in favor of the long term guy. If
he's a free agent to me, just like everyone else, because I added and dropped him in the same day.
If this will work, I think it's a loophole that should be closed. I should have to wait until the waiver period expires for the final pickup. I've exploited a loophole in the system to make a player unavailable to others for an entire day who I don't plan on keeping (yet). So, have I wasted a lot of words, because you already have this one covered?
