on the FINAL day of the season, ESPN fantasy baseball's login systems (go.com) are down, making it impossible to sign in and change line-ups. wow... it held up so well all year and this happens on the last day... :-C (might cost me a win in one league where i'm up by just 1 pt.)

and to finish off my whining, even cafe also having problems on the final day? :-b



ESPN is working fine for me, but then again I have my log-in information saved so I never have to type it in. It sounds like it's just a problem with ESPN's log-in and not the fantasy game itself. I know that doesn't help you in anyway, but having your log-in saved is very convenient.

well if you try to actually edit the rosters, they require you to log-in again, and that's where the problem is right now. their whole authentication system is down. i read on the message boards that they are giving away free fantasy basketball team if you call in for all this mess. :-b

in the end, the fact is yahoo screwed up. they were supposed to review and update the can't cut list accordingly. this is something they stated they would do as seen in the official rules. i don't really get why you constantly take shots at the guy and incite him by calling him a whiner. if you have no sympathy, fine, but i don't think you should be rubbing it in by telling him it's his fault for being a bad manager and keep repeating that he whines (not just once, but constantly doing so); i don't think you know enough to make such assumptions. some of you guys can defend yahoo all you want but the fact is they screwed up on many accounts. not just being lazy with the CCL but also with stat updates and live stat tracker (in the final days no less). as much as i love playing on yahoo, if there are flaws, i'll point them out as i see them. and these issues have nothing to do with the end user, who should not share the blame.


Thank you BitterDodgerFan. Well said.

I am not one to instigate nor engage in pointless argument but when I and my fantasy baseball competence is insulted (and baselessly and repeatedly at that) I am not going sit here and take it.

As for this …

Simple example, again -- virtually every manager falls short of the 1250 max games played at the C position. Clearly dropping a useless SP for a backup C in case your regular sits for a day in the final week is a sound strategy if Rs RBI and HRs make a difference.

If that’s not clear, well ... :-?

I think you mean the 162 game limit. You said 1250 games once before (I think you're thinking of innings instead of games played), and trying to be nice I didn't point it out, but since you did it again I can't help but mention it. 1250 games at catcher would be impossible in one season.

Carrying or picking up an extra catcher makes sense, but I'd argue that's what your bench is for. So as I said earlier, neither of us is going to change the other's mind about anything. You want to blame someone else (in this case Yahoo), where as I blame the person running the team (owner). *shrug*

Oops, right, I meant 162 games.
