Yahoo Problem - No Probables on FA market

Postby suckerpuncher » Sun Mar 30, 2008 4:16 pm

I don't know if anybody else has this issue.

When I look at the FA market and use the filter P (Probable) I get an empty list. Not just in one but in all my leagues.
It seems like there is no probable pitcher for tomorrow, 3/31.
Strange enough if I use the SP filter there are SP with ^-symbol which indicates that they are a probable pitcher.
The other filters are "All Available Players" and "Season (total)"


Is this just a temporary problem or am I the only one who experiences this?


Edit:
If I extend "All Available Players" "All Players" it shows me Shields and Guthrie as Probables but that's it.

I've got it too, and now I've got a Yahoo 909 or 999 error (I already forgot the number)

I'm in a league that is set to draft tonight and have the same problem.
The only probable pitchers that are shown are CC Sabathia and Mark Buehrle. When I go to all available pitchers, all of the other probable pitchers are shown.

Is this going to get fixed? This is a pretty lame thing to be happening during the season. Finding guys to spot start is infinitely harder without a probables list.

Yeah I get the same thing, it was working fine last night when I decided none of the FA pitchers for today were worth taking a chance on.

That's an interesting catch. Not an option I ever use, so I hadn't noticed. I'll file a bug and see if I can figure out what that is about.

That looks better. Our provider had given us some bad data, I believe. They had corrected it, but this sort of thing gets cached for a while. I forced the issue, and it looks better to me now. Please let me know if you still see problems.

Thanks for your effort, Genie.

But unfortunately it's still not working properly.
For tomorrow I get no Probable FA although there are at least 3 SP marked as Probable on the first site of the FA list.

So I'm sure it is the same problem. I can probably shut it up, but it sounds like something is funny between us and our provider so that it will keep happening. That will take more homework.

EDIT: It appears to have fixed itself, as far as I can tell; I see 5 probably starters available in my primary league. As I mentioned yesterday, the data as it comes from our provider gets cached so all you... enthusiasts :-) don't melt our servers. If they push bad data, even if they fix it, it may take a while for it to clear itself up. I'd guess that is what happened here, but I can ask around to see why they've given us a bad dump of data two days in a row, even temporarily.
