LM DL Moves McCann/Putz

Postby hockeykidb3 » Wed Jul 27, 2011 1:50 pm

So the Braves have announced that McCann will be placed on the 15-day DL today, but they have not yet done it. I also have JJ Putz on the DL who I wanted to activate, but the first game of the day started and it locked and the Braves havent officially put McCann on the DL yet. Would it be fair to ask my LM to use his LM powers to make this DL move when the Braves officially put McCann on the DL as long as its before the Braves or Dbacks games start?

Yeah I think that is completely fair. The braves have Announced that McCann is on the DL so it is perfectly okay to ask your LM to move him onto the DL. And if Putz's game hadn't started yet I think it is fair to be able to take him if the DL. I don't know why they lock it in the first place it should be before their game not te first game of the day.

Dbacks are playing San Diego, there is a very good chance he gets a save opp

"Putz is expected to return to the closer role immediately."
That's directly from ESPN fantasy baseball^.

putz got the save, you have to read between the lines on the ESPN news post, saying "it wouldn't be suprising" indicates it is the author of the post speculating, where "utz is expected to return to the closer role immediately." is more likely to come from the Dbacks management, being the ones who actually make that decision

the reasoning was the Braves announced McCann was going to be added to the DL before the first game, (I don't know why teams don't just make these moves instantly in the firstplace), second of all, ESPN doesn't give an option to have DL moves lock at individual gametimes like they do with regular roster moves, if a league decides they want to do that shouldn't they have the right to?
And i didn't get lucky predicting a save for putz, "Putz is expected to return to the closer role immediately." isn't very hard to interpret, it doesn't get much more straightforward than that
