Bartolo Colon isn't in the Yahoo database. Is this deliberate, or an oversight? At what point will he be added?

That bug has been fixed but not pushed. If your league isn't drafting in the next day or two, you'll be fine. If your league is drafting in the next day or two, you can either postpone it until the fix goes out, or remove that stat and have customer care add the stat in after your draft.

Thanks for the update Genie, thats good news.

That was me :-( The bug is fixed, and scheduled to go out on Tuesday, as it stands now. To throw you a small bone, if it helps any, that bug was introduced as I was implementing a new feature for baseball that you guys wanted that isn't out yet. Enough said.

re: pro leagues
Frustrating, but the same status as before. Held up in legal.


no answer to this?

I just did a mock draft. I drafted Reyes at SS, drafted Zobrist(2B,SS,OF) who was placed automatically into 2B slot. Later I drafted 2B Aaron Hill who was placed in my 2nd Util. slot (Encarnacion is in 1st.). There should be an edit roster feature so I could move Zobrist to OF and Aaron Hill to 2B slot hence allowing me to draft Ortiz to Util. spot instead of a bench spot. Managers should be able to move players around to positions that they qualify for and open up other slots.

The same applies to pitchers who could be put in SP or RP or bench spots. The option to move players around after you draft them could have a big impact on a draft.


and this:

Where you draft people position-wise doesn't matter at all unless you disconnect and start autodrafting. Is that what you're concerned about?

Average draft position/cost does not count mocks. I don't recall if it counts private leagues, since they have wildly differing settings. A quick glance at the code suggests it counts any league that uses the default number of teams, default roster size, default positions, and default scoring . If I'm reading this properly.

I'll attempt to speak for him - if I'm wrong my apologies.

It would be nice to be able to edit your roster in real time while you're drafting so that you can visually see how your roster is filling out as you intended. Example: You take Hanley (3B/SS) and then take a guy like Freese later whom you intend to play at 3rd. You can lose track of your batters if Freese goes into the UTIL or your bench rather than at 3B (because Hanley occupied that spot first). It would be nice to put Hanley in SS to make room.

It's a matter of inconvenience, basically.

Anyone else have the "Next 25" go to batters (even if you are looking at pitchers) and then not work any more?

Thank you, that's very reassuring.

Okay. We have understood that use case, but haven't prioritized it highly compared to the alternatives. I think we figured that if it is just for organizing your thoughts, and it is bothering you, you can always keep a piece of paper on your desk while you draft heh... So it isn't a bad idea, just a decent amount of work for a relatively small gain, so hasn't been a high priority.

Honestly it seems like a small gain but it really is quite annoying when you're drafting and you can't put players where you want them in your roster. I'm pretty sure almost every other site allows you to do this.
