  • I propose the following to Yahoo Administrators to improve the performance of these message boards. My suggestions will be general, so they would apply to any/all sports as you wish...but I obviously primarily have the baseball boards in mind. These suggestions would do very little in increased costs and improve the accuracy and efficiency of these boards.
    1) Add a separate category for recruitment of members into leagues by Commissioners looking to fill their leagues. In THAT board ONLY, it would be noted, agreed and understood that ANY posting of web links be permitted and e-mail addresses exchanged for the SOLE purpose of recruitment to these leagues.
    2) In accordance with the above suggestion, I propose that Yahoo choose random active members, as volunteers who would monitor and observe the board above and be granted permissions to delete, edit or report if necessary to insure the spirit of the board is used for that specific purpose. It is understood due to my affiliations I would be personally disqualified from the above, which only amplifies the necessity of my request.

    ERA stats are WAY off!

    by Derek L Apr 11, 2016 9:43 PM

    Britton gave up 1 ER in the 9th pitching 1 inning, that's an ERA of 9.00
    Matz gave up 7 ER in 1 2/3 IP, as Purple Tomato points out.....7 X 9=63, 63/1.66666667 =37.80ERA
    Yes, if you round the IP to 1.67, you get different results, I was taught in umpire school you always go 8 places after the decimal point.

  • YAHOO, i cannot count the times your popup advertisement to sign up for fantasy baseball has shown up on when I go to yahoo sports page. Even though I have already signed up for fantasy baseball and am already logged in? Fix your software please. This is extremely annoying.

    Y! Sports: HOW TO DELETE TEAM.

    by desire c Mar 21, 2016 8:36 PM

    If this is a team/league that already drafted, your only option is to have the commissioner xfer your team to someone else. If the draft hasn't happened, and the league IS NOT finalized yet, you can delete it by clicking on the Edit Teams link, to the far right of My Teams & Leagues. If the league has been finalized, send a note to commissioner asking him to transfer team to another manager. If this is a PUBLIC league, there is NO commissioner, and you're probably stuck with it for the season.

    MY YEAR W/ BILLY HAMILTON ??

    by ROB Apr 22, 2016 11:12 PM

    ...most of us learned last season, he's 1-dimensional. SB,not much else.

  • Two players today (Segura and HanRam) were scheduled to start but were late scratches. In both cases Yahoo failed to update player status, And I got stuck with no production from 2 out of 9 spots.

    Yahoo, please wake the **** up and update player status when required.

    I completely disagree. And FYI, NA was around last season in baseball.

    Also, in football, see Josh Gordon from last year. Suspended for the season, no IR or any other status than SUSP.

    You're not understanding. I know NA was around last season, but it used to include suspended players. Not sure exactly when it stopped including suspended players.

    And what is the benefit of having somebody waste a roster spot on a suspended player? From a competitive standpoint, what is the benefit? When a player is suspended in real life, does the team have to play with one less roster spot? It's stupid, bro.

  • BTW....do you want to sign up for fantasy baseball?

    trying to post about money leagues

    by Waiter Mar 5, 2016 6:10 PM

    And, for Pro leagues, Yahoo! keeps 10%

    For private cash leagues, Yahoo! keeps nothing.

    Learn the facts before you start throwing out posts like this.

    Alex Reyes should be NA

    by Will this profile Apr 3, 2016 2:22 AM

    I think the suspension will have the higher priority in this case.

  • Does anyone know why all the stats from the Yankees vs Astros game have disappeared?

    Curious question

    by BigPapaSlim Mar 24, 2016 10:49 PM

    That's partly true....when I first started out, recruiting was a LOT easier. You were allowed to post links and e-mail addys.There were not that many people with computers so no one really cared....but now.....everybody wants to be the chief, not enough indians. I've had roughly the same core of people in my leagues since 2003, so I must be doing something right. It's been since 2006 since I had to recruit anyone. But you are correct where you have to start somewhere...I won't deny anyone that right....but every season it gets worse.....more and more empty or unfilled leagues....more and more requests for members.

    Suspended players are not eligible for NA. Suspended is suspended.

    Here are the rules:

    NA status in Fantasy Baseball
    The "NA" under injury notes stands for "Not Active."

    Why "NA" appears
    You could expect to see the "NA" designation for players who:

    Are holding out.
    Are on the MLB Bereavement List.
    Are on the MLB Paternity Leave List.
    Have been sent to the minor leagues or aren't on an official 40-man roster.
    Example: Non-roster invitees to spring training.
    Are injured for an indefinite amount of time but haven't been placed on the official MLB Disabled List.
    When players are placed on the DL by an MLB team, there can be a short period where a player displays NA status (as they've been removed from the MLB team's 25-man active roster) prior to being updated with DL status by our data provider.
    When "NA" appears
    Player designations are updated each evening as information becomes available, so the NA status won't update until the day following their MLB debut. However, if a player is in an active roster position the day they play, stats accumulated will count toward the team totals regardless of their designation.

    More "NA" status info
    The NA designation does not prevent teams from adding a player through waivers or free agency, or placing a player in an active roster position.
    A player with NA status might not be available in a league that uses the setting "Wait until called up to Majors" for when new players become available.
    Players with the NA designation aren't eligible for the DL spot, but may instead be added to the NA position.

    Opening Season on DL

    by Allan Apr 1, 2016 2:20 PM

    Teams usually wait until the day before (or sometimes the day of), their first game.

    Once they file the paperwork with MLB and it becomes official, Yahoo's stat provider will get the message from MLB and then update their database to the player being put on the DL.

    Then whenever Yahoo gets the update feed with the player on DL, then that player will be listed as on the DL, which you then can put on your DL and pickup a new player.

    When will yahoo place players on the DL

    by matt Mar 31, 2016 6:22 PM

    When they're on the official DL list. Unfortunately, in most cases, teams won't add players till the start of the season.

  • Colin-Your "ACTIVE" players are ones occupying "positions" or ANYTHING besides the bench. Players on the bench DO NOT accrue stats on a given day. If you have a player at 1B-2B-OF-UTIL, his stats will count that day. If you have a pitcher in the SP-RP or P spots, their stats will count that day.
    INACTIVE spots do not accrue stats on a given day. These include BN-NA-DL. BN are players on the bench, you should have a lineup where you either on a daily or weekly basis swap players from the bench to positions depending if they are hot....OR a starting pitcher NOT scheduled to pitch that day should be moved to the bench.
