  • I see it was moved under the Schedule tab. No problem there. BUT..... why is it crammed into such a small box, taking up 4 lines! Everything else fits on one line. It makes the entire page absolutely horrible to read.

    The "Batters" category can be condensed some, and there is a ton of wasted space to the right of the " "Opponents" category. Obviously, with a little adjustment you can make everything fit on one line..... and make many thousands of Yahoo Fantasy Baseball players happy as well.

    Please make this happen Yahoo! Thanks

    Opposing Pitchers not shown anymore?

    I agree. I just came on here to complain about that. Taking up 4 lines for the Opposing Pitcher category is ridiculous.

  • Maybe I don't understand how it works, but I have our league set to Max 3 Acquisitions Per Week, with a max of 50 per year. But..... right after our draft (Tuesday) a player has dropped & added 5 people already? Now.... these were all selected off Waivers. They were not Free Agents yet. But..... I would think it wouldn't matter. To me, 3 per week is 3 per week. Can anyone share some insight on this? Thanks.

  • I have done mock drafts, and have looked at the Players tab sorting options. Isn't there any way to filter players to only see N/A players? Maybe it will give that option during the live draft? There has to be a way to do that, isn't there?

    What weeks do you use for 6 team playoffs?

    Thanks Rusty.

    BUMP..... anyone else?? Looking for a concensus here.....

  • Yahoo default, I believe, are weeks 23, 24, and 25. Do you find it is better to bump them up a week to 22, 23, and 24? Do teams "sit" players before the playoffs like in football? I don't recall this being a problem in baseball, but a manager in our league was suggesting moving them up to weeks 22, 23, and 24.

    What do most of you guys with 6 playoff teams do?

  • It seems like a vast majority of leagues on here are "keeper" leagues. Doesn't anyone like to re-draft every year? I think planning for the draft, and being surprised what team you end up with is half the fun. I like having access to all players, and can't imagine, say the top 36 players, being locked up. It also seems like it could get out of balance, where one team manages to have better keepers than the rest, so other teams start at a disadvantage right off the bat.

    I have never played in a keeper league, and maybe I'm missing out. Are they really that much better than re-draft leagues?

  • Anyone play in one before? How well did it go? Any drawbacks?

    Time Outs during the draft

    I didn't know there WERE timeouts during the draft?? Is that new this year?

  • Can someone look over these settings and give feedback? Good? Bad? This is a 10 team, H2H league.

    Batters Stat Categories:
    Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Total Bases (TB), Batting Average (AVG), Net Stolen Bases (NSB)

    Pitchers Stat Categories:
    Wins (W), Losses (L), Home Runs (HR), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), Quality Starts (QS), Net Saves (NSV)

    I was wondering if Xtra Base Hits might fit better than Total Bases. I'm not sure?

    Thoughts?

    H2H - Optimal Scoring Categories?

    by Jeff Feb 2, 2014 11:33 AM

    Anyone?

  • Our league has done one year of Roto, and one year of H2H. We like H2H better, and plan on having a 10 team league again this year. We had 9 hitting & pitching categoties last year as follows.....

    Batting:
    Runs (R), Doubles (2B), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Batting Average (AVG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)

    Pitching:
    Wins (W), Saves (SV), Home Runs (HR), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS), Blown Saves (BSV)

    I am looking for feedback from much more experienced players on how to improve this. I am not a big fan of things like OPS or WHIP...... basically mathmatical equation categories. Yeah, they might tell you more about how a player performs, but they are boring to follow.

    Some questions:

    1. Does having both Total Bases (TB) and Home (HR) give too much of an advantage to home run hitters? Last year we added doubles to give a little more credit over guys that just hit singles, but it was unfair to someone that hit a Triple. But..... Triples were just not worthy of being their own category.

    2. Does Holds (HLD) deserve to be its own category? Should it be lumped in with Net Saves + Holds? ...or just abandoned altogether?

    3. Did we have any must-have categories missing?

    Any advice is much appreciated.
