Lugo for Hardy is actually a smart move at this point. Myers for Hendrickson isn't great, but it isn't totally awful. Dropping Roberts and Delgado doesn't sound good, but who did he get for them? Let him do what he wants. It's his team. He's in second place. If he keeps on dropping players who shouldn't be dropped, then eventually it catches up to him. If it doesn't catch up to him, then maybe his strategy works. Forcing a guy to keep players he doesn't want to keep doesn't seem like the right thing to do...especially if he is winning while doing it.

With that type of attitude it seems as if you just have to let him alone. Hell it might payoff in the end and then he's gonna be in your face yelling "I told you so". Honestly i seriously doubt it but like the others before say... let him fall on his face. you opened the door he has to walk through it

i think im ganna let him fall flat on his face, cause he doesnt know the game and im trying to help but he won't listen

there's no way that if he keeps making these mistakes he's not ganna fall

btw he dropped delgado for shawn green and roberts for randy johnson who had just come off the DL

but he's still doing it, he dropped lugo the first time, then picked him up, and is now dropping him again... for shane victorino on the bases that he needs more SB's, w/e

he also just benched carlos lee so that he could move bill hall to outfield and the move j.j. hardy up to ss

so it's on him now

Benching players is not a problem, maybe he doesn't like the match-ups....

And if he keeps on dropping Lugo and picking him back up, and you have a problem with it (since you seem to think that Lugo has no business being dropped), go out and pick him up. If no one else in your league is picking up the players he drops, then it does not hurt him to drop the players.

Maybe he's just playing the game. Maybe we don't understand the strategy, but he's winning, and it's now gone on for a month and a half. I'd say he's doing something somewhat right....

id say he's winning because no one could keep up with arod for the first three weeks even if i was in first

im fairly sure that a newb doesn't know crap about match-ups

problem with lugo is that he says he wants SB's but he keeps dropping him...?

he dropped brett myers and cole hamels, both got gobbled up immediatly
