I am just wondering if players can just up and walk away from a team mid-season.

He is listed on the waiver wire as "Free Agent/Unassigned", even though I did not release him.  Anyone have any experience with something like this happening before?

That link is to a team.   An open team.

My apologies.

Nevermind.  I accidentally released the wrong player when trying to release someone else.  Stupid mistake.  Cost me a big piece of my rebuild.

Yep.  Stupid, stupid, stupid.  Probably the worst mistake anyone could possibly make in this game, and that is coming from someone who does nothing BUT make mistakes in this game.

It happens.   I waived a good pitcher thinking I'd hit revocable waivers.   Played it off as "He was too expensive" but I screwed up.   And I have a lot more experience than you.

Luckily, I have had an offer from an owner to put in a claim and if he gets Guillen he will trade him back to me.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate that offer.

Wow, this screw up kicked off perhaps the unluckiest string of luck I could have had.  Two days ago, I boneheadedly release Guillen.  Yesterday, in one of my other worlds, my first overall draft pick goes down for 182 days, 63 AB into his AA career.  Now, in the same world where I released Guillen, this morning I wake up to find my second overall pick refused to sign (and there is zero chance next season's draft will yield the quality of prospects this season did, no chance in hell, so the comp pick is virtually guaranteed to be of lower value).  Good thing I don't let the joy in my life hinge around a hobby, eh?

also, I can't remember the exact time, i think 10 days?, but if you leave a guy unassigned for that long, the computer will automatically release him.

10 real life days.
