Nope, they have yet to fix the Wil Myers glitch. Yahoo opened on Thursday night, so I'm guessing who ever is in charge of the player pool does not work weekends. :-D

Typically, when there is a batch of new players (specifically minor leagues players), they are added early in the morning (~5 AM EST) when everything switches over for the next day. So my guess (and only a guess) is that we'll see at least one relatively large (~15 players) batch of minor league players added sometime this week. I am basing that on what they have done in the past 1-2 years and what Genie said.

The Wil Myers "glitch" won't be fixed... He will be staying C/OF the entire season... I have never seen Yahoo remove someone from a position once the initial list is released...

I think he was referring more to the fact that he is listed on the wrong team.

Exactly, thanks Arrowhead. Yeah I was referring to the fact that Myers is listed with KC when he was traded to TB a month ago.

Still no new prospects added.

I anticipate Tavares, Yelich, Hicks, Rondon, Walker, Martinez, Wheeler, Paxton, Fernandez, and maybe a few more to be added but when?

Yes, I did see Rondon. Soler and Wheeler I didn't.

For some reason I am not getting any email notifications in one of my leagues (ID# 22995).
This is my 3rd year as the commish of this league and I never even received the notification to renew the league.
I checked my spam filter and trash folders for all 3 email addresses I have used in the past for Yahoo Fantasy, and none of them contained any messages from that particular league.
The only reason I even knew Yahoo was open for league renewals is becasue someone sent me an invite to join a different league, and there was a link to the league in question at the top of that email.

So after accidentally stumbling upon the renewal page and getting everything set up, I changed my email preference hoping that would fix the problem. However I still am not getting any email notifications.

Anyone else having issues loading the Mock Draft Application on a MacBook Pro? I have this problem every year and I can never figure out what is wrong. I do ALL the recommended trouble-shooting tips that Yahoo recommends but it never works. I always have to do them on the University's Windows computers--frustrating. :-C
