Weird Yahoo Lineup Question

Postby icepak » Sun Apr 08, 2007 6:03 pm

Say team A and team B make a trade

Team A give up 2 players and team B give up 1 player. Team B put Gagne on DL before accepting, so when he accepts the trade, he doesn't have to drop anybody (2 players for 1 player + empty)

Trade takes 2 days to complete, would player B still be able to pick up players from FA without dropping a player, can the empty roster space (which he is currently using in the trade) be filled? If so, what would happen to the trade?

If there isn't an empty spot on your roster when the trade goes through it becomes void.

So there is no rule in place (Yahoo auto enforced) that prevents team B from using up that empty spot while the trade is still pending?

you can use the empty spot during the trade review time, but the spot has to be clear once the 2 days are up.
