Rosters - Allow players to be edited before the 2nd game of a double header
Requests to allow players to be edited before the 2nd game of a double header. Currently, players are locked as soon as the first game begins.
Justin Butler commented
Please, stop making a player play both double headers. If he is out in the first game and plays in the 2nd game. We are stuck. You should allow a player in a double header to be taken out or in for either game.
Ben Rosen commented
Having to chose whether to play a player for both games of a double header or neither creates problems. Would be a lot better if you could start a player for either game, neither game, or both. The current functionality makes it terrible when your player has a double header. If he plays in game 1 and is in your lineup, you run the risk of him sitting game 2. No big deal, unless he pinch hits in the second game. Then you blow a whole game played for one pinch hit AB. Especially with 7 inning games for double headers, you almost have to sit anyone but your studs, as you risk using 2 games played for 4 ABs.

Sounds like a good idea to me
It seems like we should be able to bench a player who is not starting the first game of a doubleheader and start him for the second. Currently if you gamble that he'll start the second game and he doesn't, you are in a position to waste two outfield starts by not starting another player for one of those games. Is it possible to have that player listed twice on your roster on those DH days?

Today I had a starting pitcher who was pitching the second game of a double header. Instead of leaving him as not active until the second game began, you guys list him as active at the start of the first game. And of course when I log in to make sure he's on the bench as I was going to sit him tonight, he was up under the starting pitching and since the first game was being played, I could not move him back to the bench. And he goes on to get freaking racked. This is unacceptable. We should be able to move STARTING PITCHERS in and out of the line-up before their game starts. Utterly ridiculous.

Still waiting on this
Agreed, this should be done.
Michael Cella commented
maybe intentional passes should not count against a pitcher and maybe we should be able to make a change in the second game of a double header
Doug Contri commented
I made a trade after game 1 started to add the starter for game 2 to my team. I was allowed to waste a trade (10 max for the week in the league I am in) but then could not use the pitcher. Please lock the pitcher out if you are not going to allow them to be used or give some sort of warning.

This is a no-brainer. Yahoo should make fantasy game play as close to real MLB game play as possible.

Doubleheader players editable after first game; simple as that. If the player is not in the starting lineup the 2nd game, why is that roster position not available to designate a other players. I'd add a new stat line temporarily under the player in the first game and it reverts back to normal the next day.

There's no excuse for not implementing this
... great idea.

Nothing infuriates me more than when a player has a double header and I lose a FULL DAY of production at the plate from a PINCH HITTING appearance. It's 2018, Yahoo. We've put up with this nonsense for too long. Fix it so I can either bench the player if he's not in the starting lineup after the 1st game or insert them for the 2nd game if they didn't play the first.
This is currently possible in the game.
If a pitcher is scheduled to start either game of a DH, they will have a green dot next to their name and they can be started for the 2nd game.
You just need to have them in your active roster before the first game starts.
So your player plays in a game. So what is the issue?
The team manager makes that decision, not Yahoo!
Yeah you have a guy that's going to be playing in the doubleheader and he's not posted a to play the first game and he plays the second game
Rosters lock for the day at the beginning of the first game. The changes required to make substitutions for the 2nd game would conflict with the platform of the game.

I have an SP who is scheduled to start on the second game in a double-header day. It should allow me to start him after the first game ends and before the second game starts. That would be fair.
