I did not even know this rule. Yesterday AM I didn't think there was any possible way for you to win. Then I saw that you started all those starting pitchers with only 4 IPs remaining, yet got to use 20 additional innings. That gave you the point you needed to win. Crazy stuff. 1,300 innings limit my ass.
Oh. I thought everyone knew of that rule in one form or another. I'll explain because it pertains to many sports in different ways (obviously fantasy football the way we play it does not), at least in rotisserie leagues. I honestly thought everyone was aware of that but I'll make sure people do now.
Basically yahoo systems have a glitch and they admit as much if you read through the tedious rules. In the example of this baseball league I used it to exceed the innings cap. That's probably the most extreme example and I needed those three wins to do it so without the exception to the rule, you would have won. Another way to look at it and this applies to most leagues is when you have multiple players at a position:
baseball - outfielders
hockey - defensemen
basketball - flex/utility
In each of these cases all you have to have left for the last day of the season is a single game at the position and then all of the games played at that position will count. In baseball you only need a single OF game left for the last day to have all of your OF stats count; in hockey you only need a single game at defense (or center, lw, rw) to have all stats at that position count; basketball a single game at utility to have both count the way our league is set up. Baseball and pitching is by far the most extreme example as you only need 0.1 innings remaining for the last day to have ALL of the stats for ALL of the innings count. Theoretically with three P and two SP plus two RP slots you could end up gaining 45+ innings of stats if all five starters pitched nine innings.
I feel bad about winning that way now because I though people were aware of it
I'd really rather have you stay and continue to play, especially in baseball and basketball.
