Is it just me or did that A's - Angels game end so late last night that it's double counting the stats as happening both yesterday and today?

The "Rivalry Week" banner on the Overview page is there for non-rivalry weeks. Never goes away.

And, the "Schedule" tab on the Overview page does not indicate the rivalry weeks anymore. I think the weeks used to be highlighted in red. Seems like some debug script at the bottom "Is Rivalry = Rivalry Week".

PS

Bolding "Watch Live with StatTracker" bleeds into the bolded leader. Could that text be aligned right or not bolded?

OK, so my league is trying the continuous waivers this year, and we're definitely running into some complications adjusting to it after decades of the standard system.

I've already found one fix to make the system better for my league next year- changing the roster editing from daily-tomorrow to daily-today. Given that there's already a delay between when you submit a move and when the transaction process, I think this makes all kinds of sense. (Side question here, is this a setting customer care could change for my league this year, or is the current setting totally set in stone?)

But I've thought of something else that could be really useful, and that is the ability to change what time of day transactions process. Just some other option than midnight pacific time would be great. I'm assuming that allowing commissioners to specify custom times would prob be a nightmare for the back-end of the game system...but just one additional 'morning' (say 8 am pacific) option? That wouldn't be too crazy, would it?

This would allow both night owl managers and early bird managers the opportunity to make bids and initiate transactions having seen the full results from the previous day's games. The current midnight pacific setting clearly favors the night owls, and forces the early birds to wait another day (if transactions process daily) or possibly even longer (if transactions process less regularly).

that might even take some stress off the back end. if i had to guess though, so few people would use this setting, that it wouldn't be worth while.

neither is Carlos Lee. neither was Valverde at the time. same with Bobby Abreu, Jim Thome, Scott Rolen, and others.
they're all there.
last I knew any player who played in the majors the season before meant he would be available the following season.
