Same problem here. I knew he wouldn't be added until at least AFTER he made his debut, but here we are 2 days later and he still has not been added to waivers. My settings are correct and, based on the history of my league, he should have been added yesterday. This is so annoying.
You allow this for football. Implement it for baseball immediately. Your failure to process waivers last night ****ed up my league, and I now have no way to make things right for the affected managers. You have it already for football. Implement it for baseball now.
A trade in my league was accepted & was supposed to be processed by game times on Sunday. It's now Monday AM & still not processed. BTW trade reject time is 1 day & that has come & gone, so it's not that. Trade was accepted Friday AM. What would cause this? As commish should I just manually change the players or just tell the owners to resubmit it?
Does anyone have any insight if we will be able to edit our rosters before the games start today?(Monday) And if so, what time? I have multiple lineups that need to be set and do not have the ability to do so.

Yahoo glitches now have mucked up several of my rosters twice in the span of a week time frame!
One more and they will not be getting anymore cookie money from me.
Glitch 1: Last week they prematurely removed Brad Boxberger off the Disabled List. I needed to make a transaction on a good portion of the teams I have Boxberger on. I couldn't do those transaction though until I made a move with Boxberger. In most cases that was dumping Colome. After accomplishing this task, I was able to make the desired move I wanted to make. Once their glitch was fixed quite some time later, it was too late for me. Colome was gone and there was no way of getting him back unless he cleared waivers in the leagues (he didn't). I lost very important saves and very important strikeouts in the process of their glitches that manipulate the rosters!
Glitch 2: Waivergate. There were several players of interest to me yesterday that should have been off waivers and FA - because looking at the rosters today they went unclaimed. There was one particular move I could have made and wanted to make early yesterday morning. The player that had my interest was Cleveland Indians multi-position player Jose Ramirez. I have the player to drop for him (Profar). I waited until around midnight (EDT) for them to correct this glitch to no avail. Well, this morning he is no longer available as someone on a further west time zone was able to nab him off the free agent list.
So this is now twice in a span of 7 days were my rosters have been negatively impacted in regards to making improvements because of their glitches and the fact they apparently ignore resolving them.
id be working the trace market with felix, McHugh.add carter who is due to crash and find some relievers to help. fulmer can bedropped for a free agent mid-reliever
They must have given everyone the weekend off at Yahoo.
Aside from the issues here at Fantasy baseball, they apparently are having a major meltdown with the email system too. The mail keeps increasing, but getting into Yahoo mail is another story.
Why would I be offended by being referred to as a nationally syndicated, well paid, sports reporter?
Glad you are across the pond...stay there.
He thinks Taylor is so good because fangraphs etc were touting him as potential sleeper (in a low avg 20/20 HR and SB kind of way). He reads those opinions, and then comes and hypes whatever he read......except with regard to Stanton, fangraphs still places pretty significant value on him.
I'm in a private league. Our league setting for adding players is : Wait until called up to Majors.
Shouldn't Urias be available on the waiver wire by now? He isn't. Any reason why?
I don't own any OF that doesn't steal bases.
Additionally, Bautista's MLB 162 game averages are:
94 R, 33 HR, 92 RBI, 7 SB, .256 BA
Not exactly the 80/20/80/20/.280 that I am seeking.
Further, those averages are skewed by numbers that aren't quite average.
You don't look at a player's averages and not see red flags by outliers such has his 50+ and 40+ HR seasons. Face it, if you are buying Bautista based off those numbers then you will be sorely disappointed.
P.S. - I am not in an OBP league so OBP doesn't really matter.
Interesting...that makes points leagues essentially OBP and OPS leagues.
Segura is currently 3rd in MLB in ABs, 4th in MLB in hits, 1st in MLB in triples, and steals bases.
Turner will probably better Segura in hits, triples, homeruns, and stolen bases from the time he is called up through the end of the season.
Dozier and Russell struggle mightily in all areas.
Kang probably offers the most consistency.
I would gamble in Turner and then Kang over any of the others.
I think if I were buying bases of 50 HR seasons, he'd have been my 1st round draft pick-----I'm buying based on 30-35 HR, 100+ runs, 100+ RBI and a .370/.500 OBP/Slug%....hell that might even be 1st round value LOL---You were the one trying to tell me Joey Bats was a terrible pick for me, and then tell me OBP doesn't matter even though our league uses OBP....OK
P.S. Aren't you a fangraphs lover? How do you mess around with traditional categories like batting average when everyone knows OBP and slug% are more important stats?
