To everyone who's posting stuff like "Yahoo SUCKS!" and "CBS is a billion times better! I'll never play Yahoo again!":
Shut up and stop whining!
So your FANTASY team stats aren't up first thing in the morning. Is it really that big of a deal? Are you really that upset about it? Are you really going to whine and complain until your stats are posted?
If so, get:
a. A job
b. A girlfriend
c. A life
d. All of the above
For the last time: I'm not defending Yahoo. I'm trying to get people to understand that this isn't something to freak out about. And if you're really that upset about it and you think CBS and ESPN are that much better than Yahoo, live up to your words and give up on Yahoo. Don't play Yahoo ball anymore. And in turn, don't come here complaining about Yahoo ball anymore.
And you're right, I was making an assumption about you. And judging by how upset you are, my assumption was right. So tell me. Did you play Fantasy Baseball with Yahoo last year and did you say the same thing?
I agree, I have played all the fantasy leagues, ESPN- CBS and Yahoo is by far the best...You win leagues in ESPN and CBS and don't even have anything to show for it. The yahoo fantasy profile and trophy shelf is awesome, also at CBS you can only set your lineup once a week...Keep up the good work Yahoo!

Say you go out to your favorite restaurant. You go there once a week because you love the food and the service is great.
So one night, you order your favorite dish. Your waiter puts in the order, but the ticket falls on the floor and gets swept under the stoves.
Obviously, your order isn't going to come out in a timely manner.
So what are you going to do when the waiter tells you what happened? Are you going to flip out and storm out of the restaurant, vowing to never eat there again? Or are you going to allow your waiter to put the order in again, understanding that it was a "glitch"?
Is it really too much to expect good service from a PAID product???????
Yahoo has been at this for far to long and charges far too much to have stupidity like stats not updating on time.
For the record:
I will never use them again...

If you buy a laptop and something goes wrong with it within the first few months, do you freak out and throw a tantrum when the company can't fix it exactly when you want it fixed?
Come on man... We're talking about a few hour delay. Any company that serves as many clients and has to update as much information as Yahoo is going to have little glitches like this every once in a while.
For the record:
I bet you said the same exact thing last year.
people have all of the above, so what are you talking about? people that pay for stattracker have a right to complain. get a life and stop worrying about other people's opinions of your beloved yahoo.

If fantasy baseball was a free service, then yes, players have little right to complain. It's free, what do you want? But with Fantasy Baseball PLUS, we pay for that service. When Yahoo takes our money, there are certain expectations. Like having the service work.
There's a reason that Google doesn't do fantasy sports. It's because it takes a lot of engineers to make this system work. And for what? A big profit? To satisfy a bunch of fantasy geeks? The point is, Yahoo needs to hire more people to support their expanded fantasy sports services (and better writers to join Andy Behrens), but they don't have the money.
I couldn't care less about what people think of Yahoo.
I'm just trying to get people to understand how insignificant this is in the grand scheme of things.
Your fantasy baseball team stats aren't updated a few hours into the day. What's next? Are you going to throw a hissy fit at McDonalds when it takes more than 2 minutes for you to get your McGriddle?
