Simple rule issue

Unread postby rebelwithoutaclue » Thu Mar 31, 2011 4:15 pm

When are players on the Disabled List?

I put Johnny Cueto on the DL and had a roster spot to pick someone up (CBS League). FightDr, as commish, tells me to drop him until he's officially on the DL, which he thinks means missing a game, never mind that he's already eligible for the DL as notated by the DL tab next to his name. He then removes him from my roster, thus now making my roster illegal.


Also, I found a message from last year ruling on this issue saying that players only need to be on the DL, not that they need to miss a game or miss a pitch, which the question specifically asked. So I followed the rules established last year.


I feel like I'm taking crazy pills, someone please back me up on this.

I hadn't thought about it, but I guess I figures that you could put players on the DL who are, you know, on the DL. If it says DL next to his name what's the problem?

Are you saying you have to wait until opening day for the Reds in order to put him on the DL? That seems kind of silly.

Actually, I followed his initial ruling and waited until the game started to add him, after he "missed it". He then said the game had to be completely over and dropped a guy from my roster.

Update: I was wrong on this. The message board deletes post automatically.

Hey Reb, I just now realized that I'm playing you in this first week matchup.

In that case, fuck you and your DL. I'm glad you had to drop a player. It should have been Heyward. :spar:

Fuck you you fucking amateur! Seriously though, you're whooping my ass right now and my stats aren't really that bad aside from ERA and WHIP thanks to my 2 "aces" Lester and Verlander, oh and Axford shitting the bed on the very first game by giving up a god damn walkoff homer and 4 runs.


Anyway, this is in my other league and everything got worked out though someone else now wants out of the league because of the misunderstanding. Sucks too because he was a Yankee homer so it was just like he was donating money every year.
