I guess this is why:


Yahoo! will undergo a site-wide system upgrade beginning Thursday, February 15th at 10:00pm PST and ending Friday, February 16th at 4:00am PST. During this system upgrade you will not have access to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports games. Thank you for your understanding

I bet it's because of what espn.com is offering.

I hope they let you trade picks before the draft and let you do divisions (for the free)
Win 2 more and then we'll talk.

For those that are still attached to the "classic" pulldowns, I bring good news...

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/baseball/season/baseball-108.html

I hope that the classic stattracker window will still be available to use...the only "new" stattracker that I've had to look at is football, but with live fantasy scores available, barely have to open that one up.

I concur with Jimmy. I think Yahoo may be making some last minute tweaks to combat ESPNs vastly upgraded Fantasy options.

I PRAY that custom keeper leagues with live scoring will be free..... ;-D

Ok, it's the 16th and Yahoo still hasn't let us sign up for fantasy baseball. I'm getting sort of mad, I'm tired of fantasy basketball. :~( .

Yahoo is always bad at predicting how long something will take. It would not surprise me if you cannot sign up today at all. After checking out espn and not really seeing what all the hype is about, except maybe keepers, I too am hoping the buzz has scared yahoo into free live scoring or at least some worthwhile updates.

Yes fantasy basketball is the ugly step child of fantasy sports. Try Hockey instead it has become almost ahead of football for me and I was not even much of a fan of the game in general when I first tried it out.

This guy claims to work for Yahoo and at this point I have no reason to not believe him. He said the following earlier today:
