Amusing Knee-Jerk Reaction Droppings You've Seen.

Postby AussieDodger » Mon Apr 07, 2008 1:21 am

I have seen Pedro Martinez dropped in 15,000 leagues, and today 10,000+ people dropped Matt Kemp.
Weird. I can't imagine 15,000 league that don't have a DL spot.

In my 20 teamer where there are absolutely zero SS on waivers, someone dropped Brendan Harris. Because he had a cold?

In a winners league, one manager dropped Granderson, Lackey, and Sheets. All in one boot, without asking for trades. I got Lackey as the 2nd WW pick when I was 4th in line. I was able the move up from 6th because two fools used their WW slots for pick-ups before the day these where available.

Well, I AM the Pedro owner in my H2H league, and I'm happy to leave him in one of our two DL spots. But a guy dumped Bay after about Game 2 ... 16-team league, btw.
(That bumped me to No. 2 waiver priority when he got snagged, and the Cueto pickup by the next guy bumped me to No. 1 ... I'll be torn if somebody else solid gets dropped before Kershaw's call-up :-o ;-7 )

Yeah I'm the Pedro owner in my cafe league. I just dragged him to DL and was lucky enough to replace him with Cueto. ;-D
If it's only 4-6 weeks I wouldn't dream of dropping him.

Matt Kemp droppage just hit 11,000 by the way. :-S :-S (Am I missing something?)

Other than a 2-for-12 week and platoon situation with Ethier/Pierre, then no.
