I'm in a deep 20 team 14x14 Yahoo H2h league. Some jerk just dumped nearly his whole team on waivers. Here I am looking at the viabililty of backup infielders, getting all excited about Burgos and Turnbow. and now the likes of Derrek Lee, Lew Ford and Brandon Looper are available.
What can we do? Probably not much. His team is pretty much destroyed -- he picked up a bunch of DL's. I guess we engage in a waiver feast, but I'm #13, whaaaaa! :(
IMO the league is still viable. There are 19 other teams. We get over this and move on. If I was the comish I'd grab some of the FA's and try to set a lineup. I guess its not so bad as if there were only 12 teams.
Too bad. I was enjoying drilling down into the lower reaches of the depth chart. Much better then 8 or 10 team all-star leagues IMO. Worst thing was he was posting all sorts of complaints, including about people not managing their teams, and he was in 1st place.
Any suggestions on how to handle this? Is it better that he dumped his players, or would it be better had he just abandoned his team? At least we know its abandoned. Can the comish recind the waivers, and if so, should he? Does this kind of thing happen often?
