Free Yahoo league, with slow snake draft using the "add player" function...
1st 3 picks, no problem...
4th guy up...takes almost 24 hours, then chooses...beltran...then...soriano...then...beltre...then jeter...
I think he would have picked his entire team if the commishioner hadn't stopped him...
and now, of course, since all of those guys are on the "can't cut" list, the entire draft has ground to a halt...
sigh...I am too old for this...

have who ever wants those player "draft" them then add a crappy bench player (like jay payton) then force the owner with the real player to trade the player to his rightful owner for the payton type player. I guess that is the only solution i can see.

That is probably what we will end up doing...
I just have to wonder what, if anything, that manager was thinking...
"wow, those guys are idiots, they didn't even draft soriano...or beltre...or jeter...what a bunch of morons!!!"
:)

p.s. there are no stupid questions, just stupid people...:)

Your commish can get rid of the cant cut list for him to drop then put it back on. And he can force him to drop them too. Tell him that.

CubsFan7724...
appreciate the advice...
the commish said that he is "working on it", so hopefully we can get started again...
I just don't understand how someone can completely MISS the concept of the draft...
thanks for listening to me vent...sigh...
