Someone in one of my leagues dropped Joe Mauer a few days ago. Fortunately, I had the top waiver priority. ;-D :-B

weird thing is, I always draft a few public leagues, just to sharpen that draft muscle. I don't like mocks so much, because the pressure so to speak is off. But I usually play them to some degree just to be fair, and I haven't been in some ridiculously quality ones, but I haven't seen totally indefensible drops in 5 or 6 years either. I think the default roster settings in such leagues should increase, because you sometimes are forced to drop good guys. (not morneau though)

Do you actually follow this leagues after drafting or just draft then let the team be?

I noticed that Chad Billingsley has been dropped in 10,941 yahoo leagues. Amazing how fast some people are to pull the trigger. He's on my team and there's no way in hell i'm dropping him after pretty much just one start which wasn't even that bad.

The only real puzzling drops i've seen in my competitive league are Ivan Rodriguez and Ian Snell. Nothing too bad. However in a league with my friends Andruw Jones and Pedro have been dropped.
