Yahoo! Frustrations

Postby Yanks_Baby » Wed Apr 23, 2008 6:57 pm

Yahoo! is much easier to navigate, and is set up in a more refined manner, making it my site of choice for fantasy. However, there's one thing that they dpo that really ticks me off. When it comes to Rookies, they don't add them to the available player list until right before they get the call up, and then, if the rookie is worth ANYTHING, they right 20 columns, and add all kinds of news and notes saying "add him add him!" I feel that if you follow the minors, you should have a small advantage over those who don't, but the yahoo! system makes it that following Rookies does nothing for you, as when you have a hole in your roster, you can always just read a note or column and find who's the new rage. Justa little frustrating. Anyone else feel this way?

Trust me, Yahoo! has made many enemies here at the Cafe over their (mis)treatment of adding minor league players to their database. :-B
