Inactive Owner?

Postby warner892001 » Mon Apr 16, 2012 12:02 pm

What would you do:

My co-LM checked the league activity board and noticed that a team has not made roster moves since Feb 25th. So I asked him in email what's going on.

Basically he doesn't check the league/his team at all. He will leave Rasmus and others on the bench and will not put them in when someone else has an offday. I guess he has them for injury purposes.

His pitching staff is full with starters and the rest of the bench is all prospects.

He doesnt respond to trade offers- they often just expire.

What would you do?

Is this some kind of dynasty league? Is there money at stake? What happened at the draft? Have you tried emailing him personally?

Right now, I would not get excited about someone neglecting to swap out hitters in their off-days. As long as the lineup he's fielding is both legal and reasonable (he's not sending out benched players), then it's pretty much still entirely in "owners prerogative" territory.

The season is ten days old. Don't you think you are being a bit harsh? It is ten days. Give him a month or so then you can become concerned.

I would just ask him what his intentions are. Is he planning on just letting the team sit as is for the rest of the season?
