Q: Yahoo's Week 1 and the opening day in Japan?

Postby EWeaver » Sat Jan 05, 2008 3:34 pm

Howdy - does anybody know if Yahoo! plans to score the games happening before opening night (see schedule below) this year? I ask because my league is making a "fantasy weekend" out of the draft this year (and I'm in charge of the planning), so I'd like to know if we'll need our draft done by the weekend of March 22.

When again does Yahoo! open up their fantasy baseball leagues? Is it like mid-feb? Last year I had league #502, so I must have been pretty on top of it...

March 25, 2008
Opening Day: Red Sox vs. A's at Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan

March 26, 2008
Last day to request unconditional release waivers on a player without having to pay his full 2008 salary

It's at least #2. I remember seeing one a few days ago.

Yahoo counted the Yankees - Devil Rays in Japan when that happened , because they are official games and all. Yahoo always has an option for retroactive stats so its not like you HAVE to draft before the 1st game (sox-a's)

I could be wrong but dont think the White Sox- Mets is a real game (its a special exhibition as far as i know like the HOF game they have every year during the season)

Just E mail yahoo and ask them, I've contacted yahoo fantasy sports before on a matter that effected my league and they were very accomodating.

I would expect them to combine weeks 1 and 2 into 1 "week".

I don't see why they wouldn't count them. They are official and part of those two teams' 162 game schedule. My bet would be that Yahoo does count them. ;-D
