In a standard league the % Owned is only for standard leagues, and in Plus Leagues it's for Plus Leagues only.

Thanks, Genie. Glad to hear. This has been bugging me for a while now.

No, he drops 350 players in rankings over 5 days because he skips right over 320 no-name/DL/minor league pitchers.

Boof Bonser (60-day DL) (ranked 287): 0 IP, - ERA, - WHIP, 0 W, 0 K
Chad Fox (ranked 413): 0.1 IP, 135.00 ERA, 15.00 WHIP, 0 W,0 K
Shawn Kelley (ranked 484): 11.2 IP, 1.55 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 1 W, 11 K

The fact that Nick Adenhart is still ranked #300 is sad. Respectfully, he should be removed from the database.

Slightly unrelated, but isn't Yahoo's O-Rank updated two or three times per season? An update should be forthcoming, if I remember correctly from last year.

You can't remove Adenhart from the database. He had stats this year, and roto owners are entitled to keep those numbers.

Additionally, there are Set-and-forget leagues out there where he may still be a starter (My keeper does a single season SaF every year just because we all like to draft).

granted, the rankings system is clearly flawed but with that said, shouldnt this be an advantage to us savvy owners? if the "noob" fantasy owner uses all these flawed rankings systems, shouldnt that allow us to take advantage and be able to grab these buried players who have much more value then their O-rank would suggest?

No, this isn't O-Rank I'm referring to, this is actual rank, based on their performance this year.

Okay. I *think* I just finally fixed this bug. My change would be reflected in the rankings tomorrow. The whole thing is kind of crazy, so if you see anything that looks wonky, feel free to speak up. Sometimes the rankings are correct but surface non-obvious data, but it is also possible a weird case will arise.

Trivia: I believe the guy who suffered the most from the change was:
http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/7449

and the guy who benefitted the most was:

Alright, it's working better but none of the pitchers ranked between 323 and 463 have pitched an inning this year. All the Chad Foxes and Tomo Ohkas have been pushed back to where they belong though, which is halfway to where we want it. ;-D
