1. With the drafts, i understand the online draft - but it doesnt seem feasible to have everyone online at once, so what other options do i have? Does yahoo have something in place where you can rank your top players from top to bottom, and just say i picked a-rod in the first round and had nomar as two, would it eliminate all other shortstops on my list? or would it place nomar on my bench in the next round?
Yes, if you aren't at the draft the computer drafts for you, it's called Autodraft or Autopick. You pre-rank your players, or you can keep the Yahoo default player rankings (not recommended) and the computer is smart enough to fill out your starting lineup before drafting any bench players. If you drafted A-Rod and somehow Nomar was available with your 2nd pick and was the highest remaining player on your list, he'd either go to your MI slot, if there was one or Utility, if niether of those slots were open I believe it would draft your next highest ranked starter before drafting a bench player.
2. Do bench players' stats count? or only if they are on the roster?
They only count if they are in your 'starting lineup'. You can move bench players into your starting lineup, then their stats count. But if all your players play on the same day, you will have to put some of them on the pine for that day if your league has bench slots.
3. Can you pick 3 outfielders period, or do they have to be in their correct real life positions?
It depends on how your commissioner configured your league. If you choose to play in a public league, they don't have LF, CF and RF positions, only OF... so you could have 3 left fielders make up your three OFer slots. Always check your league settings before joining, especially if it's a private league with a commissioner.
Sorry about the questions but yahoo are terrible at explaining things.
You're excused... just don't let it happen again!
Remember that practice makes perfect.
