Does anyone know if CBS Sportsline counts tie breaker games in their season stats?

There was an extra regular season game that had to be made up on '07 involving the Rockies, and it did not count in my roto leagues at CBS (even though technically it should have since it was a make-up from a rained out game, not an "additional" game or anything).

their official rules say it does NOT count

my Platinum league has already declared me the winner, but a private 5x5 i play on CBS has not made any such decleration. people in that league said it DID count in 2007 though

Im in h2h league in cbs and it counts. It counted last year plus the "makeup"games which could have impacted div race and this year div playoff counts. Only way I see them declaring a winner before is if outcome canbt affect result. Look on yourdaily bullets from cbs --waivers process, lineups lock etc --it says "season ends 12:00a Tuesday" on mine. (counting on it since im tied in finals and need either run/hr or couple hits from Miggy or Polanco.
We had big controversy last year over same thing I made sure we voted on it at our draft this year.

Will this last game be counted in Yahoo Rotisserie Leagues? or are all standings final as of this morning?

CBS has this message posted for my league. I need a Cuddyer/mauer HR to move up to outright 2nd although there are a couple of scenarios that I can move down.

Tiebreak Game
The Twins and Tigers will be playing a game on Tuesday October 6th to decide who will go to the MLB playoffs. This game will count in our leagues as a regular season game for all scoring types.
Daily leagues will be able to set a lineup for this game, while Weekly leagues will use the same lineup from the final scoring period.

sounds like it differs on custom leagues? mine was just a free standard public roto.

I hope you choke on the extra AB's, and it costs you 1/2 point. :-D
