There is not a bench spot to put a suspended player in so you would have to outright drop him, I don't see how a DL'd player would be an issue though as players that have already been drafted can go on the DL during spring training and some have.


Well I was thinking more of say not drafting a C and drafting an extra OF to slot in for Hart when he went on the DL. This is clearly an invalid roster as I'd technically have an OF in my C slot. When entering it in Yahoo that player would be marked as a reserve player until I fixed it (Sethbeno did this in the Bandbox league we are in together as an example, he has a P slot open and drafted an extra bench guy). Some leagues are ok with that, others are not. I"m going to just assume it isn't ok unless told otherwise though~.



Didn't agree with that move at all. :-t You now will forever be known as Loophole. ;-)

I'm going to date myself some here but I got my start in fantasy baseball back when I was drafting a young up and coming Ken Griffey Jr. Since we didn't have the internet and we had to call the commish on the phone to make lineup changes you had to spell the rules out pretty clearly. Nowadays I'm used to drafting with draft software where if something is against the rules the software simply won't let you do it. So drafting on the forums can make line between legal and not legal a bit fine at times~.

I remember last year when wrveres started sticking his nose into our draft. He was so proud of his Drew Stubbs draft pick and didn't agree with me that he was going to kill his BA.

Just shows what you know. Stubbs did fall off form .243 to .205, he actually blew your projection away and hit .213. Oh wait ... :-b Nice call there.

Hey guys,

Just to let you know - I am going to be away this weekend and I have no idea what if any internet access I will have until I get there.

It shouldn't be a problem for me to make my picks (assuming they come up), but I won't be able to keep the Draft Results & Players Taken threads updated.

Will be back around 4pm Sunday (UK time).

Ditto for me so hopefully my picks come up before I go to the airport today.

I'm keeping track of players drafted, rosters, etc. I'll sound the alarm if necessary. Have a good weekend and don't worry about us.
