Is Yahoo the best for fantasy baseball?

Postby Y`s Guy » Sat Oct 08, 2005 11:44 am

Since I started playing FB on the ol' PC it has been Yahoo-only. Just the way it has panned out. I commish one league and we are three years old. We may be ready to move...just for something different. We may want to do the KEEPER thing.

OK, would some of you guys weigh in on which services are supreme. We prefer free but we have been doing Baseball Plus with Yahoo but after a month we want more than the Buzz Index.

Thanks and looking forward to reading the testimonials.

Sportsline is complicated and aggervating to use. I prefer Yahoo by far.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I agree yahoo is better, but I dont think cbs is that complicated. they give you free live stat updates.....yahoo doesnt, you have to pay

We like Yahoo, too. Cannot argue with it's simplicity. And the $8 or so for StatTracker is nothing compared to the $125 for the league Baseball Plus.

I was just curious about their competition.

Yahoo I believe is definitely the best site to run a league on, easy to use, easy to find everything, and you can't get lost somewhere in your league page like ESPN for example where it took me forever to even find the waiver wire. I would definitely use Yahoo if your upping to a keeper league. It's pretty easy to keep track of all that offseason keeper stuff too if you just start a Yahoo Group or Proboard.

I prefer Yahoo as well, easy to use, and free. ;-D

Just stay with Yahoo and get the Plus. If your league is 10-12 people, you will basically pay the same as you would for StatTracker. Just add it into the league fees. You can also do the bookkeeping yourself. Yahoo Groups are great for just that. ;-D
