YAHOO IS A JOKE!!!!!!

Postby One-Hitter » Sat Sep 27, 2008 7:03 pm

Last two days of the season and, what do ya know? No lineups, players who are playing have X's next to their names making it look like they are NOT playing and stat-tracker is at least 10 minutes behind real game time. Awesome! Glad we all paid for Yahoo Plus! It's a real joke and my league WILL be switching to cbs next year. Sorry Yahoo, but this is simply unacceptable for people who are in close championship matches and need to make important decisions on whom to play and whom to bench. It is unacceptable PERIOD!

i agree.
ive been hitting refresh the last while trying to see whos in the lineup for the 7pm games, and they are all under preview.
even the scoring has been off, especially early on in the NY/FL game. the score with the team names R/H/E showed NY with 1 H. the list of NY players showed they had 2 H. the pitching line for Nolasco showed 3 H allowed.

I've got 3 teams in tight matchups for the championship and have plenty enough problems with rain and playoff bound players being rested without this crap.
Wonder if this has anything to do with the server maintenance they felt compelled to do the other night?
I'm in full agreement, totally unacceptable!

It takes a little bit of effort, but you could go to the MLB.com scoreboard and check the box scores for the lineups (usually they're posted 30 minutes before the first pitch).

In fairness to yahoo, mlb.com hasn't been getting the lineups posted early the past couple days either.
Mets and Cleveland games are two off the top of my head that didn't have lineups on mlb.com today 10 minutes away from the first pitch.

What ticks me off is the scoring is all out of whack;Real time scoring is what I and all of us need so we can make lineup decisions.I'm sure everyone hear has other sources to get their lineup info but all these "x"s are annoying.

I believe Yahoo gets their stuff from a 3rd party so being mad at them is like hating the game and not the player....
