I think the H2H tiebreakers are pretty fair now. I don't mind taking a loss because a guy beat me in our H2H matchups or had the better overall record, anything but ERA again. :-*

I was pretty upset when I lost to Kaveman in the semis because of the stupid ERA tiebreaker, but I guess I'd maybe rather have won 3rd than making the finals and getting destroyed. I would have lost 8-2-2. You had a great season buddy.


No, you lost because Kaveman won 10-2 against you back in Week 18. ERA is not the tiebreaker anymore, it's H2H record against your opponent, then overall. I had you in ERA in our matchup and you got the tiebreaker because we tied in both of our regular season matchups but you had the better overall record. Let's go back to bogus tiebreakers. :-C


Ah. I just assumed that Yahoo! wasn't smart enough to change the tiebreakers. Good for them though. ;-D Thanks for the correction.

However, I just looked in their help section and it says that the first playoff H2H tiebreaker is indeed W-L against your opponent, but it also says the second tiebreaker is playoff seed. I think that is almost as arbitrary as ERA. :-[

I know there were a few small debates, especially about MiLB system - like the MiLB draft order and the ability to keep MiLBers that are past their 130/50 for an additional season. I dunno if there was anything about roster or category changes or anything, but I'll skim through our commentary threads later if the Commish hasn't done so yet.

Now that I'm not a bottom feeder, I still think the worst team should get the #1 MiLB pick.
