It's a good thing I'm 4th from bottom otherwise I'd actually be annoyed at this.

I need to put something out to the contestants to get a fair decision agreed upon.

TOPIC: Derwood has a clone player.

He has had two entries of Victor Martinez since mid-July.

Since this has never happened before since I've been doing the Derby, I wasn't sure how to do a fair ruling.

What are the thoughts of the participants for a fair way to amend this?

Banning Derwood seems fair. Stern...but fair.

I guess just letting him pick someone else from the same category with the same or lower HR total makes the most sense.

When Schwarber wins the WS with a big fat dong and uses his bat to club to death every player on the other team and half their fans, I expect every one of these talking heads to defend him. -yanrslatr

Sorry for the lack of updates. Apparently having a newborn is draining or something. :shock:

I will work on this today, and by the end of the day (hopefully way before that), I will have updated standings posted.
