LOL.. They definently do not.
Anyways, I know it counts towards regular season stats but we are looking at fantasy balance here. A game "163" is basically just a one game playoff. We would never want playoffs included with regular season stats (would make players on good teams more valuable and throw off the dynamic). Therefore the extra game should not apply.
Hey I'm actually in agreement with you, I'd prefer that they do not count, but they do and always have in the serious fantasy baseball world. But a valid argument that kinda qualms my rage is that there is never "fantasy balance". Some players are always going to get more opportunities than others. There are always players getting more at-bats, rbis, home runs, stolen bases, strikeouts, saves, etc.. because of extra inning games. There's nothing you can do about that either.
You can argue til your blue in the face, in the serious fantasy baseball roto community it has and always will continue to count.
