You know your league is bad when...

Postby jy2003 » Sat Apr 04, 2009 12:16 pm

In a keeper league, Wieters and Price are both dropped after the draft...

AND you get both with the #4/#12 waivers. Wow. I don't even think I want to play in this league anymore :-t

I would still play in it so that you can show dominance, but you should probably find another league to have competition. Wow that's really bad. It's just rookie mistakes. They'll learn after the All-star break.

It really depends on the league set up. How many keepers? How shallow is the league?

It's not shallow at all. 12 teams, standard 5x5 and standard yahoo lineups (9 + util). I knew a few of the guys in the league and assumed the rest of the players would be at least as competent. Obviously, it was the new guys that dropped them and not the ones I knew.

I'll definitely keep playing since it's my only league, but I feel like I'm cheating somehow :-)

Have you or anyone else told them that what they did is wrong?

That setting is pretty shallow IMO. Theoretically everyone is starting a top 12 player at each IF position and top 36 players in OF.

Wow, those guys were both dropped? 8-o

In my 12-team keeper league, managers actually REACHED for them both...Price in the 8th round, Wieters in the 10th. :-°

If you're only keeping a few guys, I don't really see the big deal. If you're keeping whole rosters, that's another story.

True, I suppose it is shallow. But the keeper factor still boggles my mind.

We are allowed to keep up to 12 players and you lose the round they were drafted in. In this case, I'd get them with the last picks since they were dropped.

Also depends on how many bench and DL slots you have. That is a shallow league and unless you have a lot of bench slots, stashing 2 unknowns that will eat up bench slots for possibly months simply may not be practical. Most owners are not going to be playing for next year before the season even starts as well. Someone eventually would have picked them up in all liklhood, but you now have 2 bench slots frozen with these two guys.
