Another Yahoo Question? Changing player positions mid game?

Postby acsguitar » Wed Jun 07, 2006 4:38 pm

Why can't I change Aramis (who is 0-4 today) as my utility over to my 3B since AROD won't be playing tonight.

I remember in the past I think with yahoo you can change positions with your player.

I wanna put Aramis at 3B and Thomas at UTIL and Arod on the bench.

Whats the difference if Aramis started at Util or 3B for me?

waaaaaa

:-t

As far as I know, it has always locked the player and the positition about 5 minutes prior to game time.

I guess I don't understand why it should lock your position from switching to a different position.

Some guys you have on your team play multiple positions and its not your fault they start at different times of the day.

It makes no sense that just cause game A is at 2:00 PM you should be punished when a Player at 7:00 PM doesn't start. I don't understand why you can't move that player into his position.

I understand why you shouldn't be able to bench him thats easy.

I see no reason why you should be able to change someones position after their game starts.

thats the way its always been. what i try to do is put players who play daygames in spots that i wouldnt be able to move them anyway. for example, in my league we have LF, CF, RF, and berkman played earlier today. i only have 1 LF so i plug him in there because i cant move him around anyway. but i had rowand in my util spot and saw he wasnt playing and easily moved him out of my lineup and could plug anyone in there. what you should have done was see that your util was playing and plugged him into the 3b spot and if your 3b into the util. then if the 3b isnt playing later, you can make the switch there.

i hope that made sense.

Yea that makes sense and I would have done that but I didn't even think about weather being a factor in NY. I don't think about rain much here in Colorado since it doens't ever rain.

as for this quote

Well you can switch positions in a real baseball game so why couldn't you do it in this one as long as no one currently playing has to hit the bench
