Anybody see the matchup ratings on Yahoo?

Postby J.C.Fighter » Mon Mar 31, 2008 12:07 pm

GO to my team --> Research --> matchup ratings

James Loney doesn't look like a home run play today. He has 2 out of 5 stars.Has 0 hits in 9 ABs against Zito since last year.
Josh Hamilton also has 2 out of 5 stars. Reached base just 4 times in 14 ABs (.286 On Base Average) against other top-tier, left-handed pitchers since last year.

Yeah, I love it. I was nervous about starting Hanley against Johan (my general rule is to bench hitters against Santana all season), but Hanley owns elite lefties in a small 14 AB sample size.

They are talking about Ian Kennedy... :-?

right now, although no games started for today, they have already moved on for tomorrow's matchups. (i guess it moves to next day at midnight?)

they should've kept today's matchups (same day) and then also have tomorrow's matchups. not everyone sets their lineup on the previous day and a lot of us tinker with the lineups on gameday. show us today and tomorrow instead of just tomorrow and this might become more useful.

Well, the thing I'm taking away from this is that we could be more clear about what you're seeing, especially since it doesn't seem like we're letting you see matchup data for multiple days, but I don't think what you're describing is correct. If I look at my matchups for today, and look at Paul LoDuca (yes, he's my catcher...), I see that he has a batting average of .300 vs. Olsen since last year. And Scott Olsen is pitching today, Wednesday, not tomorrow.

Which player/info made you say we had moved on to tomorrow?

Click on thursday then go to matchups and it will show you the rankings for thursday's matchups. It only shows rankings for current day and following day.

How odd. That's what I thought we did, so I actually tried that in trying to confirm the report here, and could have sworn I got the same research note for both days, which I thought was unfortunate. But yeah... you can see reports for today and tomorrow. I'd rather that I'm a dope who can't read than that we are doing this wrong :-D

matchup rating, not favorable matchups btw.

matchup rating shows tomorrow's date, favorable matchups show today's date.

imo, it'd be nice if both show today and tomorrow. ;-D

I'm still not getting it. I just double checked, and my Matchup Rating for Paul LoDoca definitely references the pitcher he's facing today. If I click on Thursday and then view the Matchup Rating, I get different data for LoDoca. So which player/data are you seeing that is making you think we aren't showing Matchup Ratings for today?

EDIT: Oh! Think I got it. Are you getting to the matchup ratings via News & Expert Advice -> Matchup Ratings? For that, yes, we appear to be showing tomorrow, but at least nicely labelling it as such. I was navigating through my own team, looking at Matchup Ratings via my team -> Research -> Matchup Ratings.

As for the matchup ratings on the News and Expert Advice page, I know there is already a bug filed to say that data is not easily navigated, sorted, filtered, etc. Hopefully we'll be able to improve that.

Can you filter matchup ratings just to show probable starters for tomorrow?
