Yup!

A reminder, people: you get what you pay for. In this case, you pay nothing.


Here, Here ;-D

stop crying :~(


haha.. beat me to it..

yeah sometimes i get pissed off that when i start my pitchers.. i come back finding that they are on my bench.. btw that happens when they ask for your password and SOMETIMES you have to go back to change it..

but seriously.. its for free ;-D


What causes that is when you make a transaction. If you make a trade or a WW pickup, all your future roster changes and canceled and your roster reverts back to the current-day setup. So if you have a guy slated to start in a few days, but pick someone off the wire today, you have to go move your future starter back into a starting spot. Pretty obnoxious, if you ask me.

But yeah, it's free, so I'm not complaining.

Exactly.

This thread isn't titled "Things that annoy me about Yahoo", it's titled "Why I Hate Yahoo!" 8-o

Isn't that a bit much?

Yeah...Yahoo is not perfect by any means...but like others have stated...it is free. I am in pay leagues also that have their share of problems.

Between Fantasy Baseball and Football....I get in about 22-23 leagues and 18 of them are on Yahoo with the others spread out over Fanball, Sportsline, Sporting News and NFL.com. Even if Yahoo eliminated their free leagues...I doubt I would switch. I have gotten extremely comfortable with their set-up and expect/accept the minor glitches that they have from time to time.

The only beef i have with yahoo is the unnecessary notes that pr etty much ruin any ideas of trading a dead player with deceiving numbers.For instance,"Jonny Gomes is 0 for his last 99 at bats due to a torn rotator cuff.Try moving that guy.At least make an opponent look up that info himself. :-°

If you're playing free Yahoo, yeah you get what you pay for.

But to "buy" a league costs $120 and the only real improvements are live stats for everyone (If everyone seperately bought stattracker would be the same) and the option to be able to start guys you add that day.

The PLUS league I'm in has all the other annoyancies that free Yahoo has though. Late to add call ups, horrible injury information, etc.
