I picked op A Burnet, put him on DL, Now Commish mad?

Postby FF Newb but Lovin it » Fri May 28, 2004 7:48 am

He posted a message in our league saying it must be nice to "stash" him on my team to see if he comes back. Did I do something wrong? I guess he shouls be forced to drop Sosa and Nomar since they are on the DL? That allowed him to picj up some good hitters while they are "stashed" away.

Did I break some fantasy baseball etiquette rule or is he just being a baby?

I am in first, and he also told the other participants that I have more time on my hand then all of them.

That is absurd. I DRAFTED Burnett in the last round in my league for the purpose of stashing him away on the DL in case he came back strong and nobody complained. It's not even my league but I'm incensed at your commish.

While I see why he wouldn't be thrilled with it, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. He is a baby. :-t

Everyone SHOULD be doing this. If you have an empty DL slot then what are you doing? Stash a guy until he comes back. Leave him there to see how he comes back, then either keep him or drop him - or trade him. It is smart play, and is fair cuz anyone can do it.

That's absurd. That's how you play fantasy baseball.

Your commish is a loser. Find a new league next year.

I agree. That's worse than complaining about a trade.
I'm back. Sorta.
