I would first vote on this issue in the league and see if the other players agree that if they add and drop pitchers cheaply just for their one day's worth of points, the commish can then hold the power to punish a team. Penalties can go from something small like benching a team's pitching for a day or something like benching their whole team for a few days to a week or prohibit them from making any pickups for 10 days (2 things that the league's I have been in have actually done). Of course, the pentalties would all matter on the severity of the offense. If a player picks up and drops one pitcher for one day, you could probably just let them off with a warning and then maybe have the commish bench a few of his hitters for the day. If the same person does it numerous times, especially day after day, then have the commish bench his whole team for like 4 days. Also, the severity of the penaties should be voted upon by the league. It's very democratic. What do you think about that idea? My leagues have used it and it has worked out very well.

Spokes wrote:We set those rules because we think that picking a pitcher up just for one day, just to get his points for that day before dropping him the next day just seems cheap to us. It ruins the integrity of the game. That's just my take on it. If you don't like it, I could care less.
