Who to Start Message Board
Stat Tracker is stopping at 50% and not loading. I've checked my connection, rebooted, etc... Worked fine for me last night on the same computer, so I think something is wrong with it. Anyone else having the same problem?
How would you rank this weekend's Minn SPs vs. Houston (Deduno, Gibson, and Pelfrey) for streaming purposes? I think Deduno has the best general performance, Gibson has the best potential, and Pelfrey is probably the least likely to explode. Trying to figure out which might be worth streaming... and since I only have one FA move left this week, I also need to figure out which is the best option.

Once you've updated a date, it locks things in for that date unless you make a move (free agency, waivers, trade, etc). So, if you update your roster for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday all on Monday morning, and then adjust Tuesday on Tuesday, the rosters that you set for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are not impacted. This could cause the impact you're talking about, if you were expecting your Tuesday change to the Tuesday roster to impact the Wednesday roster that you had previously set on Monday.
But... if the day you changed the night before was the day you wanted to impact, then I guess the only recourse is to double-check on the day of the games, or to contact Yahoo help to see if they can diagnose the problem. I've been playing Yahoo fantasy baseball for years and make frequent roster changes and have never incurred this problem.
If you haven't maintained future dates, or if you're maintaining the furthestmost future date that you've maintained, then all dates beyond that adopt that date's roster.
Sturg's response is also accurate... if you make a free agency move, then it resets the future dates that you've set in advance to all match whatever is on the current date. I guess the assumption is that your forward-thinking roster changes can't be assumed to still be valid after the players on your team have been changed.

The thoughts of a guy who works in IT...
- This impacted us last Saturday, so we rescheduled to today, and now it's happening again. Looking at the message boards, it appears to have happened multiple times in the last two weeks.
- I realize we're free users, but Yahoo relies on gigantic volumes of free users driving advertising revenue, and they have plenty of quality competition out there. They can't expect to be incompetent and still compete, in the long run.
- Things like last week CAN happen, even at well-run companies. They shouldn't happen often, but you can't anticipate and prevent everything.
- However, when something DOES happen that impacts massive numbers of customers, the root cause must be found urgently, and if incompetence was involved, people get fired. And action is taken to ensure it doesn't happen again. With it now happening repeatedly, Yahoo is demonstrating problems at a management level, not just a couple guys screwing something up. This shows organizational incompetence. Sad.
