Help Yahoo is Holding Maggs Hostage!!!!!!!!!

Postby Madbomber » Fri Jul 09, 2004 6:45 pm

I had Maggs on the DL I dropped Eaton today to get back his spot but yahoo will not let me put Maggs in until tommorow. Anyone know why that happens?

Because Eaton is on today's roster. All transactions (including drops) are for next day.

If you dropped Eaton today his spot won't be available until tomorrow.

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

God hates you.

Not really, but you just have to wait a day. If you had any foresight you'd drop Eaton earlier.

Because roster changes don't take effect till the following day. Eaton is still on your team till tomorrow, so you can't activate Maggs.
I'm back. Sorta.

I'm not sure I'd want to put Maggs in at this point. Keep in mind he hasn't played a baseball game since the beginning of June. :-)

Exactly what I was thinking! ;-D

Give Maggs a few games to play Stella and get his groove back (pun INTENDED!). In all seriousness though, you might be happy that you didn't start him his first game back. Let him get back into the swing of things. After such a long layoff, it's not uncommon to see an 0-fer the first 3 games or so.

Don't worry about it.

Neither did Chavez but he's 2 for 2 with a double and a RBI. :-) :-) :-)

Glad to hear Chavez is mashing. That was real tough luck for all the Chavez owners out there. You hate to see that kind of injury to such a marquee player.
