You can't veto that. I don't know what your cats are, but I dont see how you can overrule a FA move unless its an elite player (and Dunn isnt)

you can't veto a free agent move unless it's an obvious situation like when an owner drops all his players, or something outrageous like that.

Maybe the guy needed average help and Dunn kills your average. Kuo is a very good middle reliever with good k numbers in addition to era and whip. That said if he could have dropped Giles then it is a stupid move. As they say chicks dig the long ball and so do fantasy owners

Dropping Giles would clearly have been the right move, but this is a typical non-fishy dumb move made in leagues everyday. Nothing you can really do IMO, except put in a claim and ride the wave... ;-)

It is a stupid move, but there is nothing you can do about it

Find out if one of his boys has the top waiver spot...if its a money league then you should def send a message to the commish about it. I'm in a high-end money league and a similar thing happened in my league last year...the guy in 10th place dropped grady and the guy in 3rd place picked him up...i later found out they were best friends and decided to split the money if the 3rd place guy won...needless to say neither one of them is in our league this year...

Reminds me of one of my 2007 Fantasy Football leagues when the guy in first place dropped Brandon Marshall. Nothing to be done; he went to the waiver wire. I was just irritated that I had dropped to #12 priority the day for picking up Lee Evans.... :-{

Yeah, this is pretty common in football leagues I think - I have this one idiot in my re-draft leagues that drafts guys too early and then gets pissed when they don't pan out/start slow, so he just drops them. By then, I'm usually high enough in the standings to not have a shot when he drops his first three draft picks (like last year) and I have to watch helplessly as he loads up the teams trying to chase the top teams down :-o

Some people's kids... ;-)
