I don't think I'd want to risk criminal charges to get an upper hand in fantasy baseball. :-b

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

Not worth the risk in my opinion.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

I don't think Yahoo would be able to catch the person if they ever did develop a module like this.

They would catch them without a doubt and it is a criminal offense. Fun to think about, but downright dangerous to use.

It's possible I suppose, but it's really just Fantasy Baseball. I figure the evil people with brains to do this would rather come up with more clever schemes to get cash.

I like the idea that real MLB players are in my league and conspiring against my team better. ;-)

I think it would be pretty funny if someone got something like 10 years for cheating on a free fantasy baseball league. :-b :-b

How many people watch their teams and their opponents teams while games are being played?... Especially with people that have Stattracker. Don't you think it would be a little suspicious if someone's lineup changed halfway through the game?

It would be impossible to get away with this.
