Which site to play on

Re: Which site to play on

This year I've decided to play three teams, two on Yahoo and one at MLB.com. One of my Yahoo teams is in a keeper league while the other is in a full season only league. So far I haven't had any problems with my schedule and managing my teams, but it's a long season.

ESPN has had problems in the past but it's getting better.


Funny how the biggest name in sports has/had the most problems.

I have always been a yahoo user and have never had a reason to switch. I played in one league on Sporting News last year but saw no real reason to switch from Yahoo.

Whatevery you choose as a beginner, my suggestion would to just stick with one site. Don't join multiple sites and have multiple leagues all over. It makes it harder to follow your teams and will probably lead to you ignoring some of th leagues.

Once you are seasoned then feel free to explore.

Good advice. It's much more convenient to go back and forth between teams when they are on the same site. I wish I could follow my own advice. :-D

For 90% of league setups, I think ESPN is best. Switched from Yahoo and haven't looked back.

I like CBS for their free stat tracker and live scoring (something yahoo doesn't have all season). However, Yahoo offers full commish control and league customization even in their free league, where CBS makes you pay through the nose for that. I prefer Yahoo for that reason. I tried ESPN once and it was a nightmare. The draft room was freezing, players stats where not correctly being applied and the scoring was all messed up. ESPN offered an apology and free stat tracker for the entire season, but it was enough for me to turnaround and never look back. I hear they have gotten better, I'm not all that interested in finding out. MLB.com leagues are a complete joke, you don't even draft individual pitchers, you take an entire teams pitching staff. Waste of time even for a beginner.
