There's actually been a new twist to this situation (not that anybody really cares :-D )


In my emails back and forth with Yahoo Fantasy Baseball support, they are now saying that the stat correction WAS run correctly in the 6/20 overnight stat corrections, and WAS applied to the most recently completed H2H matchups.

Interesting, because when I looked Monday night, there was no correction for this particular stat error.

*Also, contrary to what they've said several times in emails, there was NOT a change in the "most recently completed" H2H matchup like they stated, as would have been the case had this stat correction actually been run in the 6/20 overnight fix.

I even went back through the week, tallying up all the earned runs and innings pitched to see if the stat correction (which was a -1 ER) was actually impletmented into the weekly ERA and H2H matchup.... It was not.

Of course when I point all this out and lay the math down for them to show IT WAS NOT in fact applied to the H2H matchup as they say it was, I get no response.
:-/
Lost cause I guess....but I definitely see this type of situation rearing it's ugly head again unless there's something put in place to fix it.


So on the bright side I am no longer getting automated responses that tell me nothing.
On the downside, I'm now being told things were scored correctly when they really weren't.

By the time they are old enough to play Fantasy Baseball, stat correction errors will be a thing of the past. ;-)

What im trying to say is "fix the root cause" which is obviously a lousy stat provider. I understand that once its updated in h2h its to late.

Well this has happened to me twice now....and even I'll concede that mistakes are going to happen, and that's just a fact. Yahoo has a great product, and considering it's free, it's even more impressive.

That said, since we all know mistakes are going to happen, why not get a process in place that allows them to fix the small number of errors that we all know are going to occur?

It's all about the lesser of two evils.
Getting the stats right is paramount, so who cares if you have to adjust a few H2H matchups (twice a year) on Monday a few hours past when the matchups are updated?
Really?
That's what I don't get. It's almost like they are saying it's better to have an incorrect winner, than it is to get things correct....and maybe have to deal with a couple rouge emails complaining about how their matchups were adjusted correctly at 9am on a Monday instead of at 5am on a Monday.
