Important question for Yahoo leaguers...

Postby Y`s Guy » Wed May 19, 2004 12:23 pm

Yahoo gives a league three options for trades.

1. The Commish can approve or reject.
2. The league can vote on trades w/ 1/3 being a veto.

or

3. Yahoo themselves will approve or reject.

I am looking at having to implement option 3 and was wondering how many of you let Yahoo decide trades. And are they pretty reasonable?

Thanks.

I've never noticed this option. I think they just go by rank and see if its balanced. if the rank is 20 points or more apart they veto (I'm just assuming here, this might not be how they do it).

Ahhh, it doesn't matter now. I thought changing the trade vote option was still open. It's not. We're locked in as a league voting bloc and everyone is vetoing everything.

Someone mentioned in a thread a few days ago that if it is a paid league (I am assuming it is because that's the only time option #3 is available AFAIK) you can email them and they will change it for you.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
