Yahoo DL loophole

Postby shmolex » Tue Apr 14, 2009 1:28 pm

So I noticed something as I was setting my lineups for tomorrow. Scherzer is set to pitch today, but it still listed as being on the DL. I activate him for today to get his start. Then when I set my lineup for tomorrow, he still shows as being on the DL so I can put him back on the DL and pick up an extra player until I need to activate Scherzer again for his next start.

Just thought some of you would like to know.

Yep, been this way for awhile now. It will work until they remove the Red DL at which point you won't be able to add players until you activate him again.

Also once they remove the DL you can still keep them in the DL spot which works great to wait for them to work out their kinks first before having to drop a player.
