Member dropped out WHIR

Postby baegames » Tue May 07, 2013 7:43 am

I am in a draft league where one team dropped out. The idea that the Commissioner has put forth is the following:

Everyone has $100 (auction money) to spend on their pitchers, and he will trade their pitcher for whoever you want to drop.
Then, everyone gets $100 to spend on hitters, same process.

He will then put scrubs on this team.

The bid process is that you have $100 to bid total. If I want one of two pitchers, and I bid $100 on one of them, the team lower in the standings get them, and then I have no more money to bid.

I told the Commissioner to put my team up for auction as well because this is a ridiculous, convoluted process with a massive change in rules during the year.

Am I wrong?

Why doesn't he just transfer the team to someone else. Between all the remaining teams, SOMEONE has to have a buddy that would take over..his plan is ridiculous

There's no easy solution if you cant find an owner

IMHO - just bench everyone on the team and let its stats fade or make starts for the ghost team but no add drops..thats my personal best of a bad situation suggestions

Try shopping team to an owner here, maybe reduce entry fee as an incentive or something (and like other poster said shop to friends of friends). Good luck!

I am always interested in joining another league... I love the challenge.
