Yahoo PPD ?????????????????

Postby Jmon » Tue Apr 12, 2005 6:24 pm

Yahoo has put a PPD up by my Cubbie/Padre players and has locked the positions, not allowing any substitutions. Is this the normal procedure and doesn't that bite the big one? Tough luck on a head to head format. Shoulda, woulda, coulda knew to make changes prior to the start.

Yes, apparently. I was very lucky this afternoon to check my team page and see the PPD before the positions were locked. I was able to pull Ramon Hernandez out of my Util position and put in Kotsay.


They locked a short time later.

If you're not online when the postponement occurs, that advice is useless.

It's not a particularly good system, IMO. Yahoo ought to just keep the lineup change rules the same, using the original game time.

Thanks for the quick replies. One more question......

Tomorrow is a scheduled double header, so could you get two games out of Padre/Cubs players by starting them tomorrow? That would at least make up for today.

+1 to this, I have seen very few guys who are worth it in double headers, except the SP in the second game. The guys are usually gassed. 'Let's play two'= bad %age #s, few big games from big boppers and ends up digging a small hole that's not worth the low potential. I've got a bunch of Padres and a couple of Cubs on both my teams so I took a big 'whiff' on counting stats today but I'm going to try to work around them tomarrow.

As far as I know, the game-time stays as originally stated. I know I was able to sub out players in that game today. The biggest issue today was that I didn't have a lot of options to sub in on a monday!
Another thing to remember is that most times games aren't ppd ahead of time giving us any time to make a sub. usually they the game will be delayed for a while before suspending it not giving anybody a chance to make changes
