There are kids like that in almost all public leagues. Stinks when that happens though. :-/
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

As unethical as it is, everyone else is going to try and get them..and it is going to put you at a disadvantage if you don't... :-/

We had a similar problem in my league last year, but it was more widespread. Three or four teams dropped everyone on their rosters. So this year, as commish, I locked the rosters of each team as it was eliminated. We probably would have had the same problem again this year had it not been for the roster-locking as one manager threatened to dump his squad on the Sunday of the week he was knocked out.

Please help me out with my team (Urgent Problem) http://fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/v ... hp?t=86522

yeah looks like he ended up dead last.

look at his first picks of the draft.

G. Sheffield
K. Foulke
J. Smoltz
G. Anderson
A. Pettitte
E. Guardado
J. Borowski

looks like he had saves covered for sure.
