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.

Tough choice , what's your inning limit?
Just at first glance I'd say Ortiz but I'm a save guy.

No inning limit. I'm not a save guy.

Can't do Ortiz...he's improved in every stat (except HR) every year of his 4 years...I think he's undervalued this year....I think it's Durazo or Looper.

This is why leagues have a commisioner, because a decision needs to be made. If he dropped someone like Barry Bonds, it would obviously be a mistake, and something that needs to be fixed because it would throw the balance of the league in jeopardy. However, it's Mike Williams, so it's tough to say. I definitely think he could have dropped him because he didn't recognize the name, and so the mistake was out of ignorance. Mike Willams will not, most likely, throw the league out of sync. In this specific instance, I would tell him tough luck, and to be more careful in the future, and point out that while losing Wiliams sucks, it';s not that big of a loss and there will be tons of oppurtunities to pick up closers on the WW (which there definitely will be).

Mark Prior is on waiver's?

Unfortunately, this commissioner has made suspect decisions in the past, so I hope he doesn't get involved. Billy Beane's made a good point about the alphabetical list on yahoo. "Williams" and "Anderson" would be quite far apart on that list...how could it have been just an inadvertant click?

I already explained that Prior is not on waivers. Look above, and settle down.

Give him back Mike Williams.

The history doesn't mean much because the power to veto that football trade was out of his hands. The Commish of that league just made a stupid decision by vetoing. Anyone can ask their Commish to veto any trade, but only a stupid Commish actually does veto the trade without good reasoning from different managers.

I'd pick him up, and drop Looper. The guy sounds like he isn't completely sure of any of the moves he makes.

My guess is he saw the injury, rushed to the wire to pick up a replacement, waived a guy he doesn't know too much about, then told a more knowledgable friend what he did. His friend laughed at him and called him an idiot and now he wants a 're-do' of his acquisition.

Take him, there is no Prior this year, and hopefully the guy learns a lesson.

Plus, you can get a measure of revenge for his past drama's.

Oh, and keep Durazo. Your 1B-men aren't great, dropping Durazo isn't going to help you there. Billy Beane has wanted Durazo for a couple of years. I'd start Durazo over Lee.
