Thomas: I guess I lost Jeffress and I had W.Smith dealt to SF but I don't know what role will be. I'm going to go for Thornburg after dropping Jeffress. From what I've seen all season Thornburg has been the 8th inning guy. I read something last week about Brewers maybe going with a guy in AAA but I forgot his name. Good luck
Yes, I am in a customized scoring league so ranks I see will differ from the standard Y! league. I understand that. It still doesn't explain why Yahoo has Altuve ranked so much worse than Russell for the timeframe indicated (last 7 days). I pointed out exactly which stats differed between the two (for that timeframe). If those differences explain why Russell is ranked 250 spots higher than Altuve then I contend the ranking algorithm is #$%$ and (more importantly) is utterly useless. Does hitting a granslam outweigh BAVG so much? It would be useful as a manager to know how each of these criteria are weighted -- if they are indeed weighted differently, as it seems. We don't even know! And I think Yahoo! should tell us.
This contention was still relevant 10 days after the original post, and it still is today (as Russell still outranks Altuve, but by "only" ~160 spots).
In a roto league I might be tempted to add Gordon to attempt to go from 7th to 1st in SB. In a H2H league I definitely would not make that move.
The League (of Thrones) seeks 2 new owners. In it's 6th year, The League is making some roster changes to accommodate a 20 team field. With $5 per regular season win, $20 for a weekly high score and other great prizes, every matchup counts in this epic battle. The League is also adopting a Game of Thrones theme. Although not required, it is encouraged for teams to choose or make up a house name and house slogan. In The League (of Thrones) you either win or you die! Just kidding, but if you win, you win money, guaranteed!
We are an IDP league. This is also the first year we are doing away with the team DEF position. In order to accommodate 20 teams without having issues with available starters the QB position is being converted to a superflex position (QRWT).

Turner needs 5 starts or 10 appearances at a position to gain eligibility. He needs one more start to gain OF eligibility in standard leagues (not sure about CF as my league doesn't to LF, CF, RF).
In Bokey's defense, he is talking about the stat correction notices that display at the top of the My Team page, not the stat corrections themselves.
