CBS is much more customizable and has better stats up to the minute which you get for free with their paid leagues.

Yahoo has less problems with their site. The CBS Java plugins seem to be a little buggy.


all-in all, my league moved to CBS last year from using our own custom software and had tried yahoo a few years back, and now everyone loves CBS.

I've only played CBS and it works fine. The draft room can have bugs on occasion, but it's workable. Once you're in the season, it works quite well--good stats, you can follow your players as the game progresses, very good sortable stats for searching FA. The cost is not much of an issue, about $10/team assuming 12 teams.

I also had that same question. I've used CBS for years for Football. Last year was the 1st time I used it for baseball and it was kind of messy. CBS apologized and promised us that they would do a better job this year. I prefer CBS because they allow owners to post pic's and stories and thet keeps everyone involved. I'ts real fun for gloating or teasing other members of the league. Anyway, is there a site that offers as much as CBS Sportsline? MLB.Com seems pretty sharp.

I didn't know CBS was doing free leagues. That is great. I've always liked Yahoo, but its getting old. I will try to switch my league's to CBS.

CBS has had free leagues for YEARS. At least as early as 2001.

Their settings just aren't very good.

Yahoo is garbage. Even though CBS sportline has its faults it is far and away the best!
