leave it to CBS to be inconsistent

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 not count in our leagues, as a play in game is not part of the regular season defined by our rules.
"The MLB season runs 26 weeks from 4/5/2009 through 10/4/2009. In the event that there are any regular season tie-breaker playoff games, the statistics accumulated in such games will NOT be counted towards your overall score."

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.


i'm fine with it since i've already won the 1st league and am guaranteed money in the 2nd, although it could drop me from a tie for 2nd to 3rd (although 1st is still a slim posibility)

yeah...they keep 40%...10 team league, $100 buyin, $600 payout, plus a 1099 IRS form that i have to claim the winnings...it's a rip. only reason i did it is that i could never find a good roto re-draft for decent money (sorry...but i'm not sending Johnny Two-Post in the classifieds $100). anyway i finally found one after i had already drafted this year (only "problem" is the buy-in is $425)

According to Genie (who works for Yahoo), it won't count:

I got the message from CBS saying it would count but I don't think it should. To me, it's not a regular season game. I've got a half point lead and one stolen base will knock me out of it.

Our custom CBS league is counting the stats. I am in 1st by 1 point. The guy chasing me has Kubel and Nathan I have no one. He is only 1 HR behind me. He can also pick up a point in OBP as he is only 0.0002 behind the guy in front of him. 1 more steal earns him a half point. 3 K's from Nathan would earn him a half point. He can even earn a half point if he vultures a win from Nathan.

then why do the stats count towards MLB season stats. These stats matter for HR crowns, BA championships and will appear on baseball cards. Why not have them in fantasy?
