Big Board Update plus Yahoo Start Date reference...

Postby OneLoveBoomer » Fri Feb 02, 2007 8:12 pm

Funston's new "Big Board" -- Link
Thoughts?


Plus, in his comments, Funston says the following:
Keeping with tradition, I will expand the Big Board when Yahoo! '07 Fantasy Baseball is launched in mid-February. As for Glaus, those experts leagues required 20 games played at a position to qualify, meaning that Glaus was not eligible at SS like he is in the Yahoo! game

Me too.However, if I recall correctly, last season it launched on Feb 2nd meaning you can sign up and rank your players but the actual drafting of teams did not take place until the 16th.

Does anyone know if the player positions listed in each player's Yahoo profile reflect their actual eligibility for '07?

Glaus' positions do not currently list SS.

Not sure, but how about Chone Figgins at 2b? That's pretty good, too...

I think not.Funston was making a reference about how the mock drafts he took part in a player had to play 20 games to be elegible for that position.He stated that this does not apply to Yahoo leagues as those are 10 games played or 5 starts to qualify.

So, are we to assume that player eligibility will be updated when '07 is released/opened? I guess?

I saw that, but I thought Figgins was going to lose his 2B and Funston has him listed as '3,2,O' so I'm confused.

Got this off of Sportsline:
Position Breakdown:
2B-9
SS-2
3B-34
OF-112
DH-6

By this,Funston is correct in listing him as elegible at 2/3/OF.
