What do you think this would be worth?

A software module which provides a 'back door' into the Yahoo database which would allow you to make roster changes AFTER the games have started?

I dont know about anyone else but I wouldn't be interested in it. That's basically cheating and ruins the fun, strategy, and guesswork of fantasy baseball

I can picture it now...the middle aged man was founded dead with a bottle of pills in his hand. Those close to him knew that something was wrong when he was discovered to be cheating in a free Yahoo fantasy baseball league. The bragging rights must not have been enough for Mr. Lowlife.

it would ruin the game if that came out. some would use it and get no satisfaction in winning and others wouldnt and would never win.

calm down peeps... just one of those things that youd love to have but when you actually have it takes the charm outta the whole thing. and the idea's not as far fetched as it seems... Yahoo's not exactly known for its security measures. ;-7

While an interesting idea (well, not to me, but perhaps to others), I'm sure Yahoo would quickly find out and quash it like a half-baked worm on the concrete. And while I'm not familiar with the legal ramifications, I'm sure some amount of prison time and/or large fine would be in order for the "lucky" user. ;-7
