Will Yahoo change their O-Ranks?

Postby Sevon » Wed Mar 12, 2008 7:10 am

Will Yahoo change their O-Ranks before opening day? I can't remember if they did last year or not. I know the "football" O-Ranks were changed a couple of weeks before the last season started. It can make a difference in the flow of a yahoo draft if so.

I'm pretty sure they do not change ranks until next season.
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

They shouldn't change before opening day but they should get updated a few times during the season. I remember they bumped Adrian Gonzalez up to the 30s for his O-Rank.

Its not the matter of us using them, its more about players who arn't at the draft, for players that don't do they pre rankings, and for players that don't know too much about baseball go by the O rank. So it can definatly influence how a draft goes.

Yep, they changed it a few days before the season started last year. I took a last look before my draft, and was stunned to find that several of my sleepers had been moved way up. And were not as likely to be available at the points I had planned on snagging them. That can be a big deal in the latter half of the draft, when some guys have to bail out and revert to autodraft.
