You are KILLING me Francisco
As I watched the quick, not slow death of Francisco Liriano last night I become more and more infuriated that he was locked into my lineup as of 12:35 PM yesterday.Â This of course was due to the doubleheader that took place between the Red Sox and Twins.
So each time I struck a blow to my wall causing very large holes, I referred to this letter sent by our man Preston in customer care at Yahoo! Sports.
Get it together man
Thank you for writing to. I appreciate your inquiry with regards to doubleheaders. If a double-header is played, your player will get credit for the stats from both games. It is not possible to activate your player just for game 1 or game 2.Â They must either be active or benched for both games.Â
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. I value your interest in Yahoo! Fantasy Sports. Whenever you have further comments or questions, please feel free to email us again. Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.
Don’t get me wrong.Â I love Preston.Â He’s very quick to send those cut and paste responses but come on.Â I’m supposed to have until game time to decide on a pitcher.
Shouldn’t a pitcher be exempt from the double header?Â Hell shouldn’t all players?Â It’s two separate games is it not? Because of this, Liriano gets lit up and I’m not happy about it.
This rule should be changed.
That is all.
