POS....I want my money back. I would not be half as pissed if it were a Monday or Tuesday, but it always has to be a Sunday! :-P

Seems to me this problem always gets worse around this time of year (as well as at the beginning of the season), when they are starting to get ramped up for fantasy football.

http://www.livestattracker.com lets you set up your team and get accurate real time scores. It's not pretty but it works extremely well and it's free.

Does anyone know the e-mail address we can send off complaints about this? Their "help" section is cluttered and I'm not obviously finding this. I know it won't result in anything, but I'd like to send them a (non-ranting reasonable sounding) message expressing my displeasure about this. If it was free, that's one thing. But when you're paying, its inexcusable to have this happen time and time again on Sundays. I just needed to do 20 minutes of number crunching and box score checking to have the most updated stats for me to decide who to play for the late Sunday games (for 2 H2H leagues, both of which have ERA and WHIP coming down to the wire). I got Stattracker so I didn't have to do that kind of thing.

Yes, it's working fine now. It was back on track way faster today than on previous days where it's gone south.

I know it's not this simple, but it just seems like they almost need to simply flip a switch and it works...which makes it all the more frustrating.

Really really frustrating. I think today's glitch is going to cost me 3 H2H categories. I thought I had a lead in ERA and WHIP (by calculating it manually, rushing the math at the last minute), so I benched Livan Hernandez. Now Yahoo says I barely trail both categories. If I knew that I would've played Livan, and taken the wins in ERA, WHIP, and Ks (where now I'll likely lose those cats by the slightest of margins). To pile on the suffering, I'm likely going to lose the holds category because of a cheap hold by Timlin (0.2 IP, 3 ER ... yup, sounds like a hold to me). I hate Sundays in H2H.
