What features would you implement...

To the original post that wanted a tiered system. You can do that yourself. Just have two leagues, you run one and a friend runs the other. Have one league be the A league and the other be the B league. When the next season begins, let the top three from the B league join the "new" A league and the bottom three from the A league move down to the "new" B league.

What I'd like to see from Yahoo.

1. Auctions
2. I'd like to see the divisions available for free leagues.
3. Better setups for keeper leagues.

I run a league like this for hockey. 2 divisions, 12 teams each. Top 6 in division 1 stay and the bottom 6 go to D2. Top 6 in D2 move up.

Is one of these programmer types create on 'open source' fantasy baseball program. That way anybody could just slap it on a server, no ad's, and we could have 'our' game back. The stats don't have to be live, but update daily in the AM preferably. But make it 'open source' so it can get tweaked, tweaked and tweaked again, till we get one that is fully customizable.

how hard can that be.

programmer types, code writers, where are you?


Is that even possible without MLB or the Players Association raising a stink?


if we have no advertising.
Just slop it up on a server for our own personal use ..
I don't see why it would cause any problems.

Exactly, the MLBPA would be all over you for it. Of course it might be kind of hard for them to track down who is using it. :-?

Didn't the last ruling affirm that all that information is public domain?

"The undisputed facts establish that the names and playing records of (MLB) players as used in CBC's fantasy games are not copyrightable and, therefore, federal copyright law does not pre-empt the players' claimed right of publicity," wrote Medler in her 49-page ruling issued in St. Louis. Even if players have a claimed right of publicity, she added, "the First Amendment takes precedence over such a right."

But at least there is a clear affirmation from Judge Medler that facts — the ultimate stuff of news and information — cannot be “owned” or copyrighted.
