If I then turn the phone sideways (without reloading) to flip the screen it'll show the rest of the page including my roster. If I then turn the phone back upright everything's still there.

Thanks for the tip.

I tried it, and your trick seemed to work for the League page.
However when I try to load up the My Team page, it would download about half way, and then Safari straight up shuts down.

Anyone else having this problem? I tried on my girlfriends phone and it's doing the same thing on there.

Here's an idea...

All of you iZombies should just throw out your iFails and get real phones.

Get a windows mobile phone, install Skyfire, and do whatever the heck you want. Track your team just like you would on your home computer.

Even watch MLB.TV from your Windows Mobile phone. Try that on your iFail.

Haha funny, but no. I'm rocking the Samsung Omnia. It pwns the iFail in every conceivable way. I'm just sick of iZombies, so I'm trying to drop some knowledge on the easily impessionable hordes of Apple Zealots that eat up Jobs' marketing campaigns.

But in all seriousness, If you like baseball, throw your iPhone away and get a Windows Mobile device. I watch my MLB.TV account anywhere and everywhere. It is awesome.

And dude I had a windows mobile device before I got the iphone, and it wasn't even remotely close. I don't pretend to know what kind of phone you have, but up till this current minor issue I'm having, I couldn't be any happier with the iphone.

there's a new app out by someone call Y! Fan that's available in the app store. There's a free version that lets you follow one team and a pay version for $2.99 for unlimited teams.

Looks like it gives you an easy interface to follow your teams with updated stats if you have stat tracker (though it doesn't look like it updates the matchups yet). You can't change your lineups via this program.

Hopefully they'll add that in the future.

edit: check that, you can alter your lineups. I don't think you can add/drop free agents (probably good for me so I don't make any rash decisions while on the go ;) .)

So far, it looks pretty good to me. I'm using my NBA team on it right now. Their website: http://www.yfanapp.com/

They also just came out with an app that's a draft kit type thing.

after playing with it some more it looks like the match up is actually updating if you have stat tracker.

when I checked it before it wasn't updated. I checked it again just now and it is updated and current with what my stat tracker says right now.

This looks like it will actually do everything I want it to do. For $2.99 it ain't half bad.

And I found some posts from the developers where they say they are planning on updating it so you can add/drop players, propose trades, and access the league message board...basically everything you'd need for your yahoo leagues.
