weird..or is it?

Postby roshambo » Wed Apr 23, 2003 8:03 am

I'm in a 12 team league. Someone dropped Armando Benitez and Braden Looper to waivers. I had 12th priority and was able to pick up Benitez. Does that seem odd that
a) Benitez was dropped in the first place
b) that i was able to get him with last priority or
c) that someone used their waiver priority to grab Looper over Benitez.....

a) Probably depends on the team in question. I can see a stacked team dropping Benitez in order to pick up someone they simply couldn't pass up, especially if benches are small. There should still be a place for Benitez in a 12-team league, though, especially if it's roto.

b) That's a bit odd; all the bad press Benitez is getting is probably to blame.

c) Tough call. Benitez and Looper probably aren't that far apart at the moment.

Congrats on picking him up. :-)
