Yahoo eligability question

Postby kentx12 » Mon Sep 06, 2004 8:22 pm

According to rotoworld M. Teixeira played 116 games at 1st base, 15 games at 3rd base and 25 games in the outfied last year. Why is he only eligable at 1st and 3rd base in yahoo?

for yahoo, it's pos specific, so i'm not sure which of pos he played. but if he didn't play 15 games at rf, lf, or cf, he won't have of elig.

Yep, that's exactly right. He did not play 15 games at either LF, CF, or RF, so no OF eligibility. Stinks because theoretically, a player could play 42 games in the OF and still not qualify (14 games at each position of LF, CF, RF=42 games).

Not sure what the Rule is, but I know it isn't 15 appearences. Take Bonderman for example, he is a starting pitcher. But last year had 5 games where he pitched in relief. This year he is SP & RP eligible, so obviously not more then 5 appearences.

Then again Linebrink is listed as a SP, RP ... though he hasn't started a game since 2002. Sometimes there just isn't any method to Yahoo's madness.
