So, this is probably in the wrong location for this post, but what is the etiquette for dealing with owners who have clearly abandoned their teams? My 20 team h2h league has a team that has not made a move all season and is rostering Schilling, Jerry Owens, Steven Shell, and Brett Wallace. The team is in 20th. The team in 19th place is not much better (and has also not made any moves).
Funny thing, though... the 10th place team has not made one move all year (or ever replied to my emails or trade offers), so I am hesitant to just get rid of the 19th and 20th teams... the 10th place team has had plenty of reasons to make some moves (Jacque Jones???) but has gotten extremely lucky with the lineup they apparently set at the start of the season (it includes Mauer, Berkman, Jeter, A. Gonz, Werth, Lind, Bourn, Tejada).
The whole thing is screwed up because 20 team h2h leagues don't allow for an even amount of matchups, so one of the teams that is not facing either of the 19th and 20th place teams twice is up in arms about the unfairness of it all.
Every other owner has been active.
So... what's the protocol?
This is a yahoo league, if that makes any difference as to the plausible repairs.
In the future, you have to find a league with people you know so this sorta thing doesn't happen. You can't do anything about it now. If they weren't strangers you could email them personally and tell them to do something, but that doesn't sound like the case. Fantasy baseball, straining friendships since the 80s.
