Yes. Wouldn't you expect sympathy if it were you?

No. He screwed up, and you wouldn't expect to get your guy back if it were you.

To be honest, I haven't even decided to take him. I like having the #1 waiver slot (Prior)....Williams doesn't excite me all that much. So I might not end up benefiting.

Is Prior on waivers?

Umm you could do like i did and make him trade someone to you for Williams. I had a guy in football do the same thing last year when he "accidently" dropped Charlie Garner. The guy asked everyone to pass, I picked him up anyway cause he's done it before. I made him trade me a RB for him. Not of equal value but helped me nonetheless. I would tell him since its happened a couple of times.. and since he's that dumb that many times and the fact that he said he wouldnt pass him up if it were the other way around.. tell him tough loss or start making offers to get Williams back.

Only thing i have against it is that it is a fairly cheap way of winning.. and i know others will disagree.. that just my opinion.

If this is a yahoo league, then I say tough luck. I'll explain. If it were a situation where he clicked on the wrong name by mistake, ok, I say let him have him back. But this can not be the case here. In yahoo leagues, when you pick up a player, they list the possible players to be dropped alphabetically by last name. So, basically, Matt Anderson was listed at the very top, and Mike Williams was listed at the very bottom. So therefore, he didn't
miss-click.

Now, if it's the case where he thought Mike Williams was the Detroit pitcher...then tough luck. If you don't know the players on your own team well enough to know the difference between Matt Anderson and Mike Williams, then you should pack up your bags, and head to the minors.

The only way this guy is going to learn his lesson, is by getting screwed. Maybe then he'll learn to double check his transactions before he signs off on them.

Ok, if Prior is on waivers, then that is just silly and everyone in the league is silly.

As for Prior, I was referring to how last season, at least in yahoo, Prior emerged on waivers. Every owner wanted him. The guy who had waiver priority #1 at that point got a great player for nothing....the value of conserving your waiver priority till later in the season.

Prior is not on waivers. I was referring to how last year, waiver slot #1 at the middle of the season was HUGE because you were the guy to get Prior for free...so it may be smart to conserve the slot if you have it at the beginning of the year, and you already have 3 closers, etc....

Getting Prior off of waivers last year was great but to hold on to a waiver priority is two in the bush instead of one in the hand. Get him and trade him if your killing in saves. fwiw
