Pinch Running in OBP Calculation

Postby jake_twothousandfive » Fri Sep 19, 2008 12:45 am

I'm in the Championship Game in a Yahoo league. We had a mixup early in the season. Due to the mistake our seeding for the playoffs was slightly off. Because of this we've had to keep the scores manually.

We've having a bit of a problem figuring the OBP for my team on Monday. In the starting lineup totals on the bottom the page for Monday, Yahoo has my OBP listed at .391. For that day, my team went 6-20 (.300 AVG) with 2 BBs giving me an OBP of .3636. However in the Yankees game Cano came into the game as a pinch runner. If you include Cano getting on base as a pinch runner in my OBP calculation you'll come up with an OBP of .391 (which is what Yahoo got).

Does pinch running count when calculating OBP? Or is it possible the Yahoo totals are off for that day?

no, pinch running does not count in OBP... maybe someone was HBP?

Here are my results for Monday. If your screen cuts it off this link should work.

Berkman and Longoria each walked once. As far as I can tell, no one was hit by a pitch or had any Sac Flys.
