Position Eligibility ? - Yahoo, Rate my Team

Postby ashay21 » Sat Mar 20, 2004 4:30 pm

Newbie here...

I have Pujols at OF even though he's playing 1B this year. I did this so I can have Sweeney at 1B.

I guess I can do this since Yahoo gives me the option for OF,1B for Pujols but when does Pujols' eligibility for OF get removed? Will it be this season if he doesn't play a certain amount of games at OF or will it be the start of next year, 2005?

My co-workers tell me my team sux. I did most of my research on this board before the pre-ranked draft. This is 10 team Rotisserie league. Let me remind you that my co-workers seem to follow espn and look for bigger names and not prospects. Should I start Castilla when he is at home in Col? Team adjustments can only happen 1x a week on Sundays and there is a large pool involved.

Here is my team:

Hitting: (H/AB R H 1B 2B 3B HR RBI SB K E AVG OBP SLG)
C M. LeCroy (Min - C,1B,DH)
1B M. Sweeney (KC - 1B,DH)
2B R. Durham (SF - 2B)
3B D. Young (Det - 3B,LF,DH)
SS K. Matsui (NYM - SS)
OF A. Pujols (StL - 1B,LF)
OF B. Abreu (Phi - RF)
OF B. Giles (SD - LF,CF)
Util C. Crawford (TB - LF)
BN V. Castilla (Col - 3B)
BN R. Mondesí (Pit - RF)
BN R. Baldelli (TB - CF)

Pitching: (IP W L CG SV K ERA WHIP)
P P. Martínez (Bos - SP)
P M. Prior (ChC - SP)
P J. Smoltz (Atl - RP)
P T. Hoffman (SD - RP)
P J. Santana (Min - SP,RP)
P C. Sabathia (Cle - SP)
P J. Williams (SF - SP)
BN T. Percival (Ana - RP)
BN F. Cordero (Tex - RP)

Here is one of my co-workers team:

C J. Posada (NYY - C)
1B D. Ortiz (Bos - 1B,DH)
2B J. Vidro (Mon - 2B)
3B H. Blalock (Tex - 3B)
SS M. Tejada (Bal - SS)
OF V. Guerrero (Ana - RF)
OF I. Suzuki (Sea - RF)
OF J. Damon (Bos - CF)
Util S. Green (LA - RF)
BN C. Floyd (NYM - LF)
BN C. Patterson (ChC - CF)

P R. Oswalt
P J. Vázquez (NYY - SP)
P M. Mulder (Oak - SP)
P W. Miller (Hou - SP)
P M. Morris (StL - SP)
P J. Isringhausen (StL - RP)
P B. Looper (NYM - RP)
BN S. Hasegawa (Sea - RP)
BN K. Ishii (LA - SP)


I think my pitching is better. And I think Abreu, Pujols, Giles can take Guerrero, Ichiro, Damon. I think 2B and C is where he has the edge. But even though LeCroy isn't playing C he still is eligible and can put up some good numbers this year. Let me know guys,

Yahoo never removes position eligibility during the season, it only adds after a player has played 15 games at another position, yo you're safe there. I don't think your team sucks, you have great pitching.

Your OF also looks good, Durham and your 3B situation are question marks, but that doesn't make your team suck. Dmitri Young has good power and Castilla also could start, just wait and see who catches fire earlier.

Try getting an upgrade at 2B in case Durham falters.
