My keeper league is free and there is quite resistance to paying for anything, so I have to stick to free. That means Yahoo or ESPN. It's been Yahoo the last few years, which has been okay. The one think I do not like about Yahoo is not keeping WHIP to four digits. This has actually changed yearly outcomes (in my favor) in the past. I would like WHIP to four digits.

there was a bunch of people screaming about their lack of carrying the decimals out, seems like there was a 4 way tie for B AVG in 1 league that would happen alot it seems.
last time I played in ESPN you had to work trades into next days lineups for both teams, was a pain or you couldn't even offer the deal

We're having problems in our basketball league with other players not being notified when a trade is accepted until it shows as processed.

How does trade notification work on ESPN for baseball? We were thinking of switching our keeper league over for the free up to te minute scoring.

I've used Yahoo and ESPN and our 8 year dynasty is currently at ESPN.

The main benefits of ESPn were:

A) It's free live scoring.

B) Great for leagues that talk TONS of smack. The customizable front page is nice.

The only drawbacks we had were in 2007 when "That Day" happened and stats were lost, and the season's scoring rebooted. ESPN lost LOTS of players with that mistake. We actually ran our league on ESPN and cloned it onto Yahoo just in case there was another screw up. 2008 ran perfectly though.
