I know its frustrating to lose a H2H matchup due to an exploit, but you have to include this week. Its not fair to a team that they should lose starts from a couple of their aces because of the short week. Same thing goes for the dumb idea of double counting Monday and Tuesday, since someone would benefit greatly if they had an Ace going one of those days.

Personally, I like H2H point leagues, as it neuters any roster exploits and gives a win to the best team (since you can manipulate ERA/Whip/BA since they dont count).

To all of this I say bah. That's just the way the ball rolls sometimes. Nobody would be complaining if their team was winning.

I'm up 8-0-2 in my matchup and I'll still think it's unfair.

Ya got screwed this week in both of my leagues. One league I'm in 2nd and won 5-4 but the guy Im chasing won 8-1. In the league Im leading I lost 7-2 to the last place team :-P

I agree that the week shouldn't be counted. Or at least give me credit for Hamiltons 28 jacks ;-7

Honestly, how many categories does it really hurt? In a 5X5, the best making one pitching appearance is going to do is win you two categories, and you're almost certain to lose the other three. The offensive statistics stay the same. Not to mention most of us have played H2H long enough to know it's coming, so there's really no use in complaining about it. I suppose your attitude is to picket in front of Yahoo! headquarters until they change it?

Yes!!! My 11 game winning streak was snapped by the last place team and the feared bats of Byrnes and V. Mart. Carmona also did his thing as well. Good times.

Yes it could happen but there's a much slimmer chance I'd lose to the last place team over a full week.

I had no players going on Thursday. He basically had a full squad and had a big night leaving me only 3 days to catch up.
