Is he still feeling the effects of his injury? I'm getting a bit impatient with his lack of production. Any insight?

A guy in one of my leagues dropped Huff and picked up Delgado. I took Huff and dropped Tiexiera. Huff appears to be shaking off the cobwebs. I got tired of waiting for Tiexiera and figure I'm not losing anything with Huff if T does get it going.

It happens sometimes. That wasn't the most shocking FA I've seen. In another league, I picked up Jose Guillen as a FA last week. The guy that dropped has three 1B's, couldn't get anyone to trade with him (because he wanted too much), so he was forced to drop one. Delgado was the lesser of the three he had.

It happens.

No dropping of Delgado doesnt just happen. Instead of asking too much he could of asked for barely anything and gotten a much better player than was on the FA list, unless Arod was on ur FA list too

Jose Guillen isn't much of a stretch to be a FA in relation to delgado being one....must be a 6 team league max. Guess I don't understand the fun in a league where your entire team is all-stars (unless it's for $$$!)

I'm guessing this is not a Yahoo league because it has a little something called...Can't Cut List. This is designated so people don't cut players like Delgado. Even if your league doesn't have a Can't Cut List, I would suggest NEVER dropping anyone that is on the "CCL" in Yahoo leagues.

I don't use it in my Yahoo league. I don't like anyone telling me who I can or can't cut. For instance, say Prior was out for the year. Assuming that I have 1 DL slot in a non-keeper, I would much rather use it for someone who can help me later.
