The Jury wrote:I'd still much rather just have no rain and have the games played according to schedule. With double headers, even though you get the same number of games played in theory, you get short-changed because players tend to either not play as well or not play in all games involving double headers.


+1, I am inclined to avoid hitters in double headers as they tend to be 1 for 8 or 0 for 9 more often than not. Especially make up games that are sandwiched into schedules.

Is that a fact or just a guess?

I always think its the RPs owners who get shortchanged by DHeaders. Never seen 2 saves the same day. Probably a minor issue generally but when you have to make up so many rain outs, it adds up.

As a Barajas/Teix/Blalock/Wilkerson owner, I didn't have the best week ever.

really sucks for you H2H guys, and for roto it isn't too great either, because a lot of teams will sit a star or two in the 2nd part of a double-header...

Stupid rain got me in my head-to-head matchup. I'm a Mench-Varitek-Lowell owner and I will lose runs by 2 and RBI by 3 and will tie in home runs. Two games for those three players could have given me 2.5 wins this week, and possibly allowed me to catch up in average also. :-[ :-P :,-(

Those rainouts cost me a win in my 30-team money league. I lost 228.83-228.33. 1/2 of a point!

I had Young and Varitek in those rainouts. if they combined for even 1-16 and nothing else, or just 1 BB and nothing else, I would have won.

Its gonna be a long time before I get over that, and maybe never if I end up losing my division by a game.
