so for say offensive players. i have 4 OF spots with 9 games remaining. if i play 4 tonight and 4 tomarrow leaving me with only 1 game limit left on sunday, i can then play 4 OF on sunday even though i only have 1 game remaining and get the stats for all 4 players on that day?
You are correct sir.
In Yahoo - yes. Otherwise, it is very difficult to know which of the 4 OF stats they should use - you could base it off the one whose game starts first, but what if they all start at 1:05? So Yahoo simply avoids the controversy and complexity and implements the easiest solution.
I'm fairly certain CBS does something different with offensive games played (which I should look up, since it affects me).
Yup. And what if two games were scheduled to start at 1:05, but one was rain delayed. Or you had 6 innings left, and your pitcher who pitched first got hung up in a rain delay after 3 innings. Or if we get inaccurate real-time data about when a game is starting. etc. etc.
We *could* in theory add some sort of interface to let you prioritize guys at a position. But that would probably confuse tons of users, and only really matter for the last bit of the season. As is, the current solution applies equally to all teams and thus does not favor any team.
