Any advice on this would be GREATLY appreciated.
Last night, an owner in my league (8 team, 5x5 head to head, single season) picked up J. Hernandez to fill in for Jeter, minutes after the injury happened. To get Hernandez, he dropped Mike Williams.
This morning, the owner posted a long message on the league board asking if everyone will bypass Williams on waivers so that he can grab him back, without penalty, after he clears. He says he meant to drop Matt Anderson, not Williams. I don't know if this means he just clicked the button without noticing it was Williams on the screen, or whether he saw the name up there but for a minute thought "Williams" was the crappy DET closer he meant to drop. The owner wrote that he probably wouldn't be sympathetic if someone else were in his shoes, but he's asking us nonetheless. Also, he promises that if we all do him this favor, he will repay us (how?!). I have the #1 waiver claim.
This situation has a bit of history. Last year, this same guy offered, and I accepted, a trade of WASH DEF for Jimmy Smith at the beginning of the football season. I immiediately took it, but he then went to the commish and asked the commish to veto, just becuase he didn't mean to do it. The commish vetoed it, without hearing my protests.
Anyway, what should I and everyone else in the leauge do now?
(he still has four closers for 3 slots on his team...he's stocked even without Williams). Thanks for reading this longwinded situation and for your advice.
