If you're paying, then your league should have total control over the eligibility of every player. If you saw he was SP listed as RP, why didn't you have the commish change it? That option is there for a reason, in cases like this were there is a mistake. No offense, but that's your fault.

My commish wouldn't do that. He also says he lacks power to place a guy on the DL for you. Westbrook was definitely DL bound earlier in the year, but he wouldn't DL him for me... Cleveland took forever to officially do it, and it cost me Carmona, who I was going to grab as an injury replacement.

The guy is a stickler for rules and we haven't incorporated CBS' commish powers into our official rules yet. We moved over from Yahoo.

Then that is your problem. We have been on CBS for many years. I am the commish and I can change and players position eligiblity when I need to. Your beef is with the league rules then not CBS.

I can't put a guy on the DL unless MLB actually puts then on the DL, but why should anyone do that anyway. You are just opening a can of worms. Where is the line.....a guy may go on the DL but isn't there yet. DL is a thing that we leave up to MLB and we only go by what they do.

Callups and position changes for newer players is just a fact of life with fantasy. I've never gone a season on any site without having one technical mistake cost me something... doubt many other people have either. You obviously picked him up knowing he only was RP qualified...

I'd like to think there was a site that added players the minute their first game started and updated positions and injuries in real time, but that'll never happen. Most fantasy websites are side projects of larger sites... they don't have the energy to double check 5000 MLB and minor league guys every night. If your stats add up and your roster moves get accepted, that's the most you can demand.

I am sure you've has plenty of situations where the eligibilty inaccuracies for new players have actually helped you. Sometimes these things work for you and sometimes against you. Go have a beer, take a deep breath, and let it go.

Thing is, it kind of sucks, yes, but it's your fault for not starting him over one of your closers, which you probably should have given that you knew he was going to pitch.
