Rain Delay and PPD


Dang. Would have had 5 SP today, to cross the IP cap but Norris (CLE/DET) got delayed. I can’t sub him out since the game already is past it’s 1:10 start time. @niv would there be any possible way to allow lineups to be altered (generally) to allow for postponements and delays.

Freeing up players in cancelled games
Opening Day 2018 Open Thread

For example, if a player is in lineup, once the game is PPD (announced) he unfreezes and can be moved.


No, ottoneu will follow the industry standards on this.

Here is what Yahoo says about rained out games:



So does this mean that if Tigers and Indians players were locked into the lineup but the game was never played it would still count against games played? In my league it appears that way but doesn’t make sense since they didn’t play. And if the game is made up Monday will that count stats for ottoneu leagues even though the season ends October 2nd according to the league’s main page? Also since auctions have to begin more than 48 hours from midnight of the last day of the season will auctions be able to start up to midnight on Saturday night instead of Friday?

  1. Postponed games don’t count as games played.

  2. Most of your questions are answered in this thread: The last day to start auctions is 2 days before 11:59pm ET of the last day of the season


popping back in here to ask if it would be possible to get a PPD notifier on the lineups page for any players in a PPD game? if i show up at 6:50 for the 7 pm starts and see a nice green check next to my players, i need to go elsewhere to determine if the game is actually going to happen. a little PPD next to the game (or instead of the checkmark) would be helpful.

I’ll also note that industry standards aside, i like the idea of guys only locking when their game ACTUALLY starts, rather than when it was supposed to start. but i get that might not be feasible.


I’ve brought this up with our data provider (i.e. FanGraphs) and we’re going to work together to surface this status. This should be addressed sometime this season.


Why is a player locked in my lineup when the game is postponed due to rain ?I can’t take him out four a player that is actually playing


We don’t have PPD or Rain Delay data yet but I’m working on getting it in the next week or two. So right now, players will lock at their scheduled game time, regardless of weather status.

If you send me an email (help@ottoneu.com) about what player, etc, I can look into removing them from your lineup.


Is there any chance of getting players freed up to move out of the line-up after a game has been cancelled before it started?
