I guess we'll just have to wait through Yahoo's "delay" before we can adjust our lineups.
I'm not sure why you put delay in quotes, nor am I really certain why you're so miffed by this. I understand it was inconvenient for you, and FWIW, here is the actual MLB transaction list
, courtesy of MLB.com -- I imagine Yahoo either uses it or something that pulls its information directly from it. Otherwise I'm not 100% sure what you're really griping about here. This happens the first week of every season, literally, because of exactly what was quoted there -- teams having the ability to wait until opening day to put guys on the DL officially, and being able to retro them back to the middle of March; so they can literally be put on the DL Opening Day and play in the 4th game of the season. You don't run into it during the season. Why? Because Yahoo's policy follows a pretty simplistic standardized rule -- then the player is officially placed on the DL, Yahoo puts them on their DL, usually the following day, after the game "resets" which typically happens, as I recall, about 3 - 4 am EST.
Baker was placed on the DL on March 31st, and on that link above, he's at the very top of the list, which I believe means he was the last (technically second to last) player to be placed on the DL that day, which means it was likely executed later in the day; and you were complaining that evening that he wasn't on Yahoo's DL yet. I have no idea when he got his DL status on Yahoo's game, but the fact that you haven't let this go is bizarre at this point, especially when it's literally no different on any of Yahoo's competitor's games. ESPN, CBS, etc. literally all do it the same way.
