Yesterday night, while picking up SPs, he mistakenly dropped one of his closers, Heath Bell, instead of one of the scrub SPs he had on his roster. He immediately after contacted me to let me know and to ask me to lock Bell until he cleared waivers and could be put back on his team. I have no problem letting him get back Bell, but that isn't the issue I have a question about here.
As it happens, he is facing me this week and I just want to make sure I'm being impartial enough. I see my options really as one of two things:
1) Go in now and basically cancel the transaction, putting Heath Bell back on his lineup while removing the pitcher he picked up.
2) Lock Bell now until waivers clears and then ensure he gets back on this team.
Option 1 penalizes him by removing a SP from his starting roster and Option 2 penalizes him by not letting him have one his closers for a few days. As reference, it's a close week (6-5), with him being the league leader to this point in the season and myself in 3rd. Furthermore, he's behind in Ks by a dozen or so and Ws by a couple with him having only one extra SP over me today.
Under normal circumstances I would probably opt of option 1, but I don't want to do that if it's going to make me look like I chose that option to benefit my team. Hopefully it won't matter either way, but I'd like to avoid any appearances of impropriety.
