  • How do I reach Yahoo to remind them that Swihart has 6 starts in the OF (LF) and should have had OF (LF) eligibility a couple of days back.

    I can see a day's lag but a 6th start plus a day off equals 2 days late.

    Any reason yahoo is waiting to add Urias?

    Yeah TJ Ritter is right. Urias has been owned in all my leagues for the last 2 years. You must be in a private league where your commish has that setting set to a screwball choice.

    Yankees vs Astros Stats

    This is ridiculous. Let's keep this thread going strong until Yahoo fixes things.

    Maybe we should submit work tickets about the problem. They hide "Help" in fine print at the bottom because they never want people to communicate with them. Probably cause they are always screwing up.

    number of rounds in a 14 team draft?

    Yep what PDQ said. In you case it is 28 rounds. If you draft a prospect with the NA by his name after the draft you can then slide him into the NA slot and go out and claim someone else on waivers to fill the empty active roster slot.

    No NA prospects?

    Hey we meet again, KB11. None of the young prospects seem to have an NA by their names at this point. Only players who were on MLB teams last year but now are free agents still not signed to a MLB team like Marlon Byrd and Alex Rios etc. have the NA by them.

    Which adds to the 40 man roster theory + leftovers from those rosters from last year.

    Yahoo says they have more prospects than ever so I guess the non 40-man rosters prospects have yet to be loaded. Those are the ones we want to draft so make it happen, Yahoo! Can't draft til they become available.

    There are some loaded, others not. Both new prospects and older ones. Like Moncada is missing from rosters who already own him. So is Berrios. But Glasnow is still there. The new Korean player Park with Minnesota has been added. But not AJ Reed.

    It isn't no prospects. It is half and half. Which is probably worse.

    Since many slow drafts want to start immediately hopefully this will be fixed in the next 24 hours.

    He asked about live draft, not when Yahoo opens. Right off Yahoo site:

    Team and league registration is open from January 28, 2016 until July 10, 2016.

    First day for live drafts - March 1, 2016
    Last day for live drafts - June 26, 2016

    Guy in my league

    Who cares. Those prospects aren't worth much other than Judge. But there are better OF prospects this season to take Like Mazara and Brinson and Nick Williams.

    Bird eventually should be good but not great and he is currently blocked by Tex anyway.. Take AJ Reed instead if you want an elite 1B prospect.

    Reysnyder is probably never going to play at the major league level and if he doesn't, certainly not in NY.

    There are far better prospects than any of these guys. Don't ever, EVER, E-V-E-R play as a "homer", that's for losers. Who cares what team your players are on in real life (unless it is a pitcher on the Rockies, haha). So let that idiot draft lower-ranked prospects and then be stuck with them.

    No, Yahoo OPENS on Feb 28th. But the announcement that stated that also stated that live drafts start March 1st.
