Jacoby Elsbury is still not listed of 2 PM EST on 4 / 14/ 12 is still not designated on the DL list. This is clearly unfair to managers who are trying to replace such a valuable player.
I think the real complaint here is that Yahoo is slow to monitor Rotoworld. And Ellsbury can't be cut even if he would be (worst caase) out all season because of Yahoo's own can't cut list and the days it seems to take to have a player dropped from that list. Or in the case of .230-something Carl Crawford, months and months last season. So owners feel frustrated that in an instant digital age, Yahoo is always slow to react.
Me? I got Ellsbury on same team as Michael Morse, Mike Carp, Doug Fister and Tim Hundon so I don't have any slots to move him too anyway. And to think when I drafted Tim Hudson real late I thought why not. How would my DL ever fill up during the first few weeks of the season, hah.
PS: Just noted that Yahoo did put an "x" by Jacoby's name in that league so guess he won't be playing today, heh.

yeah, yahoo isn't instant. sometimes it takes until the next morning. that's the way they are.
but a big chunk of DL delays aren't from yahoo, but from the teams. yahoo won't do it until the team does. a case like David Wright, yahoo isn't gonna throw him onto DL if the team hasn't.
and a lot of noobs here don't bother to check if a guy is officially on DL--they just hear "injured" and think that means DL.

More to the point most people don't even know about Rotoworld and they certainly don't know the precise time it reports or the time to monitor such activity. So a legitimate question is who are you blackswampblue????
Relax? You obviously don't have this player on the roster as you laugh. Typically the player is designated the next morning. Its so easy for no one to take accountability is this computerized world. Just blame the computer right?
