If your league has followed yahoo rules all year, I think you could safely default to yahoo rules here. Both are making a decent amount of money and at least covering the entry fee. Since yahoo rules are accepted in many, many leagues, you have a solid rationale for leaving things the way they are.
Personally, I would quietly ask all the other owners what they think. In the end, it is your league, regardless of what we here think.
Just curious, but what was their record against one another. In many professional leagues, this is often used as a tiebreaker. If it helps first place, you could safely announce he's in first considering all the other ways of deciding this.
Your third place winner comes across as a truly class act. I'd be proud to have such an owner in one of my leagues. I hope you will let him know that.
Yahoo provides the venue for competition but that doesn't mean you're using their rules. You could host your league on Sportsline one year, Yahoo a second, and ESPN the third. And you still carry your own rules around with you.
If your rules are, we use Yahoo's rules, then that's your answer.
But if you have your own rules for other stuff then it's silly to say, "Well, this is what Yahoo says." No. You don't have a tiebreaker. Which means... you don't have a tiebreaker. So this season is tied. It's not that hard.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
