It's their fault you have #14 priority? I've never run into this problem with Yahoo!...

For all you get for free, you'd think there'd be a lot less griping and a lot more appreciation. The masses will never be happy.

Agreed. They put out a very good "product" for free to thousands, if not millions of users, no complaints here. The stats are always updated early in the morning and I haven't experienced a bug all year. Kudos to Yahoo, even though I still love Sandbox more when it was free (and working correctly).

I just don't get why stud prospects like Felix, Duke, and Street aren't available to be picked up from the beginning of the year, that's all.. as mentioned by others in another thread, the inconsistency with which players are added is maddening, and in the scope of the complexity of their fantasy baseball operation as a whole, I just can't imagine that adding most teams' major minor league prospects to the database in March would be such a difficult or onerous thing..

Well maybe they just can't. I'm not saying this is a valid reason but I know in MVP Baseball 2005, they only feature minor leaguers with their real name and picture until they have played at least one MLB game. The rest of the minor leaguers in the game have fake names and pics. Maybe something similar is going on with the MLBPA and Yahoo, just an observation.

Well that was quick, Yahoo has added Felix to their system even before his 1st start.

I just dropped Dempster (my weakest of 5 closers) for him. He's on yahoo waivers until the 6th which means I can add him in time for next week. Hopefully he plays well against Detroit. If not, I didn't really lose much, since I haven't been playing Dempster for awhile...not too bad of a risk.

Yep, I'm going. I'll tell you what I think, although I'll probably be sitting in right field.

I know the site question was not directed at me but I was able to pick him up Sunday. We use the usastats site. He has been listed in our player database all season as well as all other top minor leaguers.

All I can say is for those of us that have Yahoo is hope that he gets shelled on Thursday.

I know it sounds awfull, but if he does horrible his first start (the 5th) maybe a lot of people who have claim on him in waivers for the 6th will drop out and not try to claim him giving you a better shot at being able to get him.

We use Yahoo and I picked him up today. It just matters what waiver settings you have. We don't have waivers.
