HELP! Stabbed in the back on eligibility rules!

Postby Guest » Tue Feb 24, 2004 12:54 pm

My league commissioner just changed the rules on me! It was going to be 15 games to qualify at a position and he changed it to 10. <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> Help. Where can I find a list of all players who qualify at a given position based on 10 games played?

Geesh. It's not that big a change. Don't get upset. It will affect a grand total of about 10 players.
In fact, I wouldn't even worry about it. But sportsline and ESPN both have listings for how many games a player had at each position.

most notable effect off hand is that Bill Mueller will qualify at second base this year.

I hope this didn't happen after the draft. :-t
I think that's one of the cardinal rules of this game, make any changes in scoring etc. you want every year, but once everyone agrees and you draft, nothing can be changed without everyone's approval. And if you plan ahead, nothing should ever need to.

Luckily it was before the draft, but I need to tweak my ranking sheets . . . not a huge deal, just a pain, and now I'm afraid that I'm going to miss guys, so I want to figure out whose eligibility changes.

i believe Melvin Mora and Geoff Blum also qualify at Shortstop this year.

those are the three main biggies that I can come up with although i am sure there are a couple of others that have any meaningful difference.

i would imagine it would bump Jose Reyes value up fractionally..since he will qualify at second sooner. but i dont think it will be anything tangible.

you might be able to spot some sleepers who will qualify at another position sooner....like a Matt LeCroy type player last year...qualifying earlier at a more desireable position.

Tex - 14 games at 3b last year

Tex qualifying at 1b/3b and OF is a lot more valuable.

I couldn't find this on the Sporting News or ESPN site. Man, I really don't want to have to go through 1000 player profiles. Anyone have a link for me? Please? O:-)
