    MLB 1 Game Playoff

    If there is a 1 game regular season playoff (e.g. Orioles and Yankees) will it count for Yahoo leagues? Thinking of cutting everyone and picking up all Yanks/IOriles A's/Rangers that I can for Thursday....

    • You guys really need to learn how to read your team page.
      Description

      This article explains that any makeup games due to rainouts earlier in the season or one-game playoffs needed to break ties for Major League Baseball will not be counted for Fantasy purposes.

      Resolution

      Yahoo! Sports only counts MLB regular-season games for scoring purposes that occur during the normal regular-season schedule to end on Oct. 3, 2012.

      Therefore, if a one-game playoff is needed to determine a division or wild card winner, scoring from this game will not be applied to Fantasy leagues.

      In addition, the Fantasy season will not be extended for rainouts and/or make-up games that take place after the regular season is scheduled to end.
