in the end, the fact is yahoo screwed up. they were supposed to review and update the can't cut list accordingly. this is something they stated they would do as seen in the official rules. i don't really get why you constantly take shots at the guy and incite him by calling him a whiner. if you have no sympathy, fine, but i don't think you should be rubbing it in by telling him it's his fault for being a bad manager and keep repeating that he whines (not just once, but constantly doing so); i don't think you know enough to make such assumptions. some of you guys can defend yahoo all you want but the fact is they screwed up on many accounts. not just being lazy with the CCL but also with stat updates and live stat tracker (in the final days no less). as much as i love playing on yahoo, if there are flaws, i'll point them out as i see them. and these issues have nothing to do with the end user, who should not share the blame.
Thank you BitterDodgerFan. Well said.
I am not one to instigate nor engage in pointless argument but when I and my fantasy baseball competence is insulted (and baselessly and repeatedly at that) I am not going sit here and take it.
As for this …

Simple example, again -- virtually every manager falls short of the 1250 max games played at the C position. Clearly dropping a useless SP for a backup C in case your regular sits for a day in the final week is a sound strategy if Rs RBI and HRs make a difference.
If that’s not clear, well ...
