All-Star Batters getting stats on Yahoo

Postby Havok1517 » Tue Jul 13, 2010 9:22 pm

I assume these stats will not be counted but it is strange that batting stats are counting but pitching stats are not.

From Yahoo...
Due to the reduced number of games played during All Star week, innings-pitched requirements are waived from Monday, July 12, through Sunday, July 18, in all Head-to-Head leagues. Active pitchers will be credited with all stats earned during this period, regardless of total innings pitched, although at least one pitching appearance is required to win ERA and/or WHIP.
Note: Private League Commissioners cannot override this ruling and implement a minimum innings pitched requirement during the All Star week. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause Private league managers.
Statistics earned in the All-Star Game are not counted in scoring for Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Baseball.


Well, there currently are counting. So, they might wanna fix that.

In past years, they just made this week's stats combined with next week's. Why are they not just doing that again? :-? It seems like a much better idea.

This happens every year. They show the live updates. They never count towards the week.

I am seeing Verlander's stats for his partial inning of work. But it will all be washed away tomorrow anyway.

I seem to remember this having happened at some point in the past, too. I may not have been Yahoo! though... :-?

no. but i wish it was.
some teams only play three games in the week too.
just combine it with next week, or at the minimum, gives us commissioners the option to combine the two weeks.

Maybe it was in my ESPN league. I like this option better though...it seems that winning a shortened week can be very flukey.
