New Yahoo Player Data Windows

Are snazzy. Click the little yellow box next to a players name and you will be pleasantly surprised. Nice work yahoo...

I think the phrase "What fun fruit roll-up will they roll out next" applies here...

What does that have to do with the new Yahoo player data window? :-D

EDIT: This does sorta look like ESPN's player window though.

So a slightly better looking version of options we already had that looked better than everywhere else to begin with. More advertising revenue for them and still a lack of options for us. For the past few years yahoo seems to be misusing its resources and coasting on its rep.

I like it. But I agree that I'd rather have free live scoring.

I saw this in my basketball league today. Nothing special for me, looks similar to ESPN. I wish that when it was new it stood out more like the old red blazing note. The upcoming games on the side is helpful but I wish you could choose between that and previous games or display both.

EDIT: It is showing previous and upcoming games. :*) I guess I meant instead of showing the score of the game I wish it showed the players stats in said game.

ESPN free live scoring is a freaking joke. You guys seriously sit there and stare at it?

I think you missed the point. It's because of free live scoring that we don't have to sit and stare at the screen for 20+ minutes while we tally stats.

For instance: Lets say that it's Saturday night. The last game has just finished up. You are trying to decide between starting W. Taveras or J. Cust on Sunday (the last day of scoring) as one of the your regular's is injured. You quickly check the H2H score. You're up by 2 in HR, but down by 1 in SB (stats through friday - as Sat stats won't be up until after midnight PST). But how did your players do today? How did your opponents players do today?

If you have yahoo, and don't have "live scoring", you have to sit there for 20+ minutes and tally up your players results, and than your opponent's players results. After that, you notice you're now up by 5 HR's and tied in SB. You start W. Taveras.

If you had free live scoring, you just sign on, check the updated results, see that you are set on HR, and tied at SB. You start Taveras. 30 seconds after you originally signed on, you're off doing something else.... living your life.

Get w/ the program Yahoo.
