This is a pretty clear case of collusion though. There's a way to combat transaction surprises like that, which is to set your account to alert you by email for any add/drops.

Whoever is the commish of your league should pull Soriano off that guy's team and put him back on the other guy's team, then lock the non-playoff team's roster. Actually, all non-playoff team's rosters should be locked. That's just standard procedure in my league. Commish can do this.


CBS runs money leagues that pit groups of strangers against each other (and take a huge cut...i'm in a 10 team 5x5 for $100...payout is only $600 to 1st place and they have some Grand Prize for all the leagues) and they have "comissioners" for these leagues, which is just some CBS employee who is probably the "commish" for 500 leagues

Oh, well that explains it. Money, stangers and FLB is a toxic mix.

Well, I beat him by 5 points.

What's funny is that he dropped Chris B. Young to acquire Soriano and he would have won if he had never done that.

Thanks for all the input guys.
