A lot of weeks you end up with a 0-0 tie and it's really just luck if you win the category. Same goes for triples, in a H2H league you don't want to use them. It's not a fluke that triples happen but more often than not it's a fluke to win triples for the week. It's just luck assuming everyone has a speedster on their team and even if you don't you could still manage to win it some weeks. I wouldn't mind them in roto but not in H2H.

Agreed. My league plays with TB's whioch are much more consistent.

My league counts inside the park homeruns, grandslams, and perfect games.

What? No 3-HR Game category?
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Yahoo will probably implement it as soon someone is able to accomplish it. Could be a while...

They forgot triple plays. Extra bonus if unassisted.

I don't think anyones ever hit three HR in a game. :-D
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium

My league has bedpost notches. Don't even think of offering me a trade for Jeter. He's untouchable.
