Additions to better Yahoo Fantasy Baseball

Postby jondunc » Wed Jun 07, 2006 9:34 am

I've played roto Fantasy Baseball with Yahoo for seven years now and every year I've been happy with the additions to their game. This year is my first in a PLUS league and that's even better. However, two additions really seem lacking to me:

1) A page that displays how long you've been in each position for the season. For example, you've been in first place 50 days, second place 30 days, etc. It could also include records (similar to their record book) for team that held first place/last place the longest, etc. This would add an interesting dimension for bragging rights if a team wins at the end of the season but only spent a few days in first.

2) A page that lists the cumulative numbers your team has put up at each position. For example, if I use 13 3b over the course of a season, I could refer to this page to compare their total numbers to another team that used 1 3b.

Any other ideas?

I would also like a page showing the matchups for the day. Currently it shows the team your player is going against and the time of that game. But I want to see the scheduled pitcher (so I know who my batters are facing), and the pitcher's throwing hand (I may bench Trot Nixon if he is facing a lefty). For my fantasy pitchers I would like to see how good a batting team he is facing and if the stadium where he is pitching is pitcher friendly.

This is already available, though perhaps not as directly as you would like. Next to the opponent, there is a link for the gametime. If you click that it will show the scheduled pitchers and their season numbers. Their handedness, and stadium are available through links therein as well.

I'd like to see them track who has left the most on the bench over the year.

I agree, that does seem like an obvious oversight.

One page that shows all remaining games played for positional players and all remaining IP for pitchers, by team.

This is obviously just for leagues with max innings and positions limits.

I HATE having to go check out each team in my league to see how many innings they have left. Surely they can add this to the standings page.

I think the Trade Block is a great feature but it should be on the league frontpage so it can be paid attention to more.

Oh, how can I forget this one. New this year...

A link to the FULL standings page that is accessible from any page on the site.

They used to have this on the top of the screen, but did away with it this year. The only place I know where you get there is from the League Overview page.
