Ethics Question

Postby SewerRat22 » Sat Jun 03, 2006 6:57 pm

In my leauge.. the standings leader (also happens to be the commish) is starting only two pitchers a week in a 12 tean H2H.

SP
R. Halladay
(Tor - SP)

SP
J. Contreras
(CWS - SP

SP

RP
C. Ray
(Bal - RP)

BN
J. Vázquez
(CWS - SP)

BN
G. Maddux
(ChC - SP)

BN
R. Clemens
(Hou - SP) NA

Did a little research and found that the league setting for pitchers is a combined 7 inning minimum a week (week to week roster changes)

Anyone have any thoughts on this? Or is this acceptable? my first year playing fantasy baseball.

I don't see what's wrong with what he is doing. Maybe he just doesn't like Vazquez's and Maddux's matchups for the week and decided to sit them.

If that's the way the rules were before the draft, then there's not much anyone can say. If he changed the rules to do this, then yeah thats unethical, but this is kind of like a churning pitchers strategy, it will either be very effective, or kill you.

You can't ask him to stop or anything, because it's within the rules, and everyone else has the ability to do it too.
