Why not just copy and paste it into excel?


Usually yahoo have some sort of numbering prefix next to the pre ranking names or have the draft results in a table, making it difficult to just select the names you want in the right format. But overall for a free site, its great.

Sandbox used to boot you if you didn't check your team after 30 days or so. They then let people just take over the dead teams.

Oh Sandbox, does anyone still use them? :-? I used to love them until they bent us over with their horrible transition from free to pay.


Agreed. trim the dead weight.

This may be asking too much, but how about public NL only or AL only leagues with default settings. I like drafting in NL only drafts, but usually have to settle for a private league with weird settings. It would also be nice to compete in a Yahoo Plus league that was NL only.

When looking for a league to join, it would be nice to be able to jump to a date your interested in rather than having to go through the entire list of leagues.

This already exists in HTH leagues and has for a couple years. It's in a non obvious link, but it's in there.

Have the option for an Auction style draft with basic hard cap rules ($260, can't go over under any circumstances).

Have an option for keeper leagues, so no inputting preseason necessary. Also have the option for how many years kept, if it's an auction keep the $ value, etc.

That would make Yahoo! 100 times better.

How about something simple like sprucing up that horrible message interface with something with threads and stuff like from the 1990's instead of the dark ages??? :-D

how about fixing the pre-draft ranking page so you don't have to click each player individually to move them over to the list you can adjust...that makes me want to shoot myself in the face

The ability to do multiple stat sorts simultaneously. You can already sort by 1B, 2B etc. then HRs, SBs etc., why not HRs then BA?
