...3 days later he's _still_ not on the DL in Yahoo? :-C :-?

I'm assuming it's still a problem with Yahoo's stat provider?

Nope. He's not on the DL. We checked today, assuming our provider was slacking. Not so. The guy is on the operating table, but not on the DL.

He was just placed on the DL per MLB.com so Genie is right.

So, apparently mlb.com jumped the gun by stating on July 5th that the Nats "Assigned OF Elijah Dukes to the 15-day disabled list".

:-C "Somebody got some 'splainin' to do!" (...in my best Cuban accent.)

EDIT: Ok, mlb.com apparently removed that transaction between the time I posted on this thread and now. :-S

YA EDIT: Ok, mlb.com apparently moved the transaction from July 5th to July 8th.

:-S :-°

I give.

YA YA EDIT: Apparently he made it to the Yahoo DL between when you posted and now. I feel like I'm in some kind of time warp.

Regardless, all is well. Thanks! ;D :-°

hey genie, maybe next year in h2h leagues it would be nice to have the option to skip the all star week. 3 full days of games isn't worth it to me! thanks

One issue I have with Yahoo is that after you make roster changes it makes you log in sometimes. Then it sends you to your "My Yahoo" page and none of the changes are saved. Maybe this has been discussed before, but I find it really annoying.


It looks like this glitch has been fixed. ;-D

Under 'Next Game' on Carl Crawford's Yahoo profile page, it has 1 SB and 10 CS vs AJ Burnett:
http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/6870

On his splits page, it has 10 SB and 0 CS:
http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/687 ... pe=Batting

I think the latter is probably correct.

Just a tiny ding--- Notepad.

if you reach the max 200 letter limit on yahoo's NOTEPAD (Note to Self)- it will likely hang up and you won't be able to do edits, until you email Yahoo and have it fixed. Apparently has happened many, many times over last three weeks and Yahoo is trying to fix it across the board.
