:-t

I don't see anything new for this year. Pretty disappointing after seeing what ESPN did to revamp it's site.

Ugh... they already have some prospects in their database: Gordon, Bailey, LIncecum...

Yahoo has gotten fat and lazy off their huge free fantasy baseball market share.

lets say you beat someone the first week 7-3. obviously your record will be 7-3 and his will be 3-7. does anyone know if it's possible to make the standings show the records as 1-0 and 0-1?

You guys are way to picky for a "free" league.
I think they do a pretty good job.

What galls me with Yahoo is that there are simple features, like divisional play or reserving keepers before a live draft, that would be easy to implement. Instead they choose to reserve things like this for their ridiculously overpriced "PLUS" leagues.

Booo!!!! I say. Beggars can't be choosers, of course, but ESPN is showing signs that free fantasy baseball can offer more.

I like what Yahoo does, no complaints.

When is the earliest draft you can select?

No, but Fox Sports offers that format.

Seriously I hope Fox and ESPN can push Yahoo to offer more in their free service. The extra stuff in Plus they give you isn't all that impressive.

I think the site upgrade was for Yahoo in general, not necessarily just their fantasy sites.

Yeah, but even that upgrade is nothing special.

A pox on you, Yahoo!
