2nd to last place team accidently dropped Sheets for T. Gordon(holds league). He called me, e-mailed me and posted within minutes of drop and based on his team makeup and post it is obvious he meant to drop Riske. I believe him as does the league, we plan on letting him reaquire Sheets. However, the league feels he should recieve a penalty. I say droping his waiver from 5 back to 10 is fair but the league thinks it should be more. I've been told #10 waiver for the rest of the season as well as drop to the #10 waiver now and he has to hold onto Sheets and Gordon for the rest of the season. I could see #10 waiver for the season but don't believe having to keep Gordon is fair. I think that since the league believes the guy, having to use is waiver to reaquire is fair. Any thoughts? Also since it does set a bad precedent should I make a rule about when this can be possible so people don't just change there mind on a drop and ask for the guy back, or should I just say be aware of your drops b/c this wont slide again?
Your league is crazy. It would be almost debatable if Sheets would be even worth the harsh penalties your leaguemates want to impose.
Move back his waiver priority to #10 for right now; that's fine. And even that is unnecessary... the reason you have a commissioner is to fix honest mistakes. And based upon the evidence you gave, it was an honest mistake. Frankly, if someone in my league did that, I would just fix it with no comment.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
