question about yahoo

Postby jacopo2155 » Sun Mar 23, 2008 2:14 pm

so my league is set to draft this wednesday the 26th. i know there is a game the night before, so since our team is drafting after the first game, will our league not start until the week of april 7th, or will we just start the day after we draft?

I am pretty sure that Yahoo is set up so that you'll have to start with the next FULL week.

A couple years ago we drafted after the first Japan game (Posada had 2 HR or something). All the stats that already occurred counted for our league: If you drafted Posada you also got his 2 HR. This was a roto league.

What I posted in my Yahoo league's "Commissioner's Note:"

Some may be wondering about the Oakland-Boston series (two games) that starts in Japan on Tuesday, and how this would affect scoring for us. These two games alone do NOT count as "week 1;" the first fantasy week is officially March 24th - April 6th.

This obviously creates two extra real-life games (in "week 1") for managers starting A's and Red Sox, but this evens out throughout a long season (i.e., they play two less games the rest of the way). Between Tuesday, March 25 and Sunday, April 6: Oak/Bos have 7 games; the rest of MLB (?? at least those I have checked), 6 games.


That being said, your league starts when you set it up as commissioner. So if it week 1, then you will start DURING week 1, but for games occurring AFTER your draft (i.e., all the games beginning Monday). They will not apply retroactive stats in any situation. I am skeptical of the following, doubt it happened (if it was Yahoo):
