I am the commissioner of my league and have a unique situation that I am not sure how to deal with. I'm trying to do what's right, but I will inevitably piss someone off.
Here's the timeline of events:
Manager 1 drafted Andy Pettitte before Pettitte was in the Yahoo! system. I couldn't roster Pettitte, and after entering everyone's teams, I sent out this email to my league:
"Also, Andy Pettitte is not in the Yahoo! system yet, so he'll be manually added to [Manager 1's] roster when possible. Or, [Manager 1] has the option of dropping the replacement (Phil Coke) for a different player."
On April 22, Manager 1 dropped Phil Coke and added Jhonny Peralta.
On April 30, Manager 2 dropped Brandon McCarthy and added Andy Pettitte.
Pettitte has pitched twice since Manager 2 picked him up:
On May 13, Pettitte pitched 6.1 innings, giving up 7 hits, 4 earned runs, 2 homeruns, walking 3 and striking out 2 in the loss.
On May 18, Pettitte, pitched 8.0 innings, giving up 4 hits, 0 earned runs, walking 1 and striking out 9 in the win.
On May 19, Manager 1 asked me to add Pettitte to his roster.
Some other things:
-Phil Coke is an inside joke in our league, so I arbitrarily picked him as a replacement player because I needed to fill Manager 1's roster after our offline draft.
-Manager 1 is a Yankee fan and clearly knew that Pettitte was pitching in the bigs when he started pitching in the bigs.
-I realize that I fucked up as commissioner by not adding Pettitte immediately when he became available.
-Manager 1 asked me if Pettitte was available yet, before he joined the Yanks. After that, he said nothing until May 19.
-Manager 2 thinks it's horse shit if he loses Pettitte.
-Manager 1 thinks it's horse shit if he doesn't get Pettitte.
What to do???
