Is there any chance that career batter vs. opposing pitcher could be a stat to be viewed on your team page. The matchup star rating shows up twice (once under matchup rating and once under research). Could that space be used to show a batters career batting against the pitcher he's against that day. Or maybe under "Opponents", where it lists the opposing pitcher, or even as a sortable option under the "players" list. It gets kind of annoying clicking on every player profile to find out that info. It is extremely useful in determining lineups, especially when you have two similar value players at the same position and the lefty/righty matchups are both in/out of favor. If I see my backup is, say 8 for 17 career with 2 HR against the opposing pitcher, You can be sure I'm finding a way to get him in my lineup. I was very happy and extremely grateful when yahoo changed a while ago to posting under the opponents tab: the opposing pitcher, his stats and most importantly whether he is LHP or RHP without having to look at every individual page if i didnt know what side the pitcher threw from. But i think that career batter vs. pitcher would be a great addition to the team page. I check all my batters profile pages for this info every day, and it has been extremely beneficial to my fantasy performance and i would encourage others to utilize this info with their teams as well. If it was able to be listed more easily, I believe everyone would benefit.

While we're making requests...I'd like to see a "global" watch list, which I can view from any of my leagues.

User (you) error does not mean it doesn't work. I just tried it and had no problems. On this PC I'm using right now I only have an older FireFox version 2.whatever. I had to install the Greasemonkey Firefox addon first though per the instructions.

Works for me. After you click Matchup Ratings, next to "Comment" there should be a Show Details link.

Well, that would have made things simpler if you stated that first............. Never heard of greasemonkey. I guess That would be why its not working. Thats not user error. That's instructional error. I'll try that

Works perfectly now..... Thanks guys! Never heard of userscripts before. I just went to the link and clicked install and a page jumped up with the programming code. It didn't seem like it installed, but i figured it did. The greasemonkey thing was what did the trick. Works perfectly now..... Thanks guys! Even better than i had wanted too!

Glad you got Bwanna's script working. At the time we added the column about the opposing pitcher, we had initially implemented something quite a bit like what Bwanna did, with stats about the matchup and so on. The decision was made here that it was too cluttered and did more harm than good. I personally liked it more the way you're suggesting, but I just write the code :-)
