Dude, this is about public Yahoo roto leagues. Yahoo IS the commissioner, and is not doing a very good job at, um, commissionering when it's forcing managers to carry worthless if studly SPs who have made their last start while their owners lose out on opportunities to drop said SPs for FA help in the final days.
You are in the 0.1% of Yahoo Public Leagues where this is actually an issue. Like I said before, it's sour grapes. Lest I'm mistaken, public leagues have no move limits, no IP limits, and no other form of modifications, yet you really expect this. It's uncanny. This is why they're Public Leagues... because they're for casual players who aren't serious about the game. People who are learning, or want to just go along for the ride. If you take the game seriously by any semblance of the word, you create a custom league. Period.
My friend, Yahoo public roto leagues do have limits on max IP (1250) and games played for batters and a trade veto clause and other features intended to promote fair play. Though there is no limit on moves.
I'm not sure how you figure that this is an issue in just 0.1% of Yahoo public leagues? Yahoo has thousands of public i.e. non-custom leagues and as far as I can tell default settings are in place for each one. The only way to bypass the Yahoo default settings is to set up a custom league, with a commissioner.
And ageed, custom leagues are preferable for the competitive, which I am. But I'll play a public league for the heck of it, 'cuz I love fantasy baseball ... I signed up for this particular league right before the season began, the last team I created. It turned it out to be more competitive that a lot of custom leagues!
And so I find myself a point or two out of 1st -- saddled with Halladay Lincecum and Carpenter because the "commissioner" (Yahoo) has dropped the ball and is not adjusting its Can't Cut List as any diligent & sensible person would do, and contrary to its own statements, to wit, "the Yahoo league office reviews the Can't Cut List on a daily basis and adjusts for performance and/or injury factors."
According to Yahoo, the purpose of the CCL is to "prevent managers from negatively impacting fair play by dumping quality players into the available player pool." Well, if a studly SP has made his final start, dumping him to the WW isn't going to negatively impact fair play, is it?
I can't figure why you're blaming me for "sour grapes." Yahoo says it reviews the CCL daily and adjusts accordingly, it clearly is not doing so. Period.
