Ya the DL is all wacked out right now. Several players have flip flopped fomo DL to non-DL multiple times in the same day this week.
I noticed it with Asdrubal Cabrera and Matt Kemp too. And it varies from league to league.
In one of my leagues Kemp was designated as DL eligible last night and hes been active for like 4 days! In another he wasnt.
And like you mentioned, if you navigate to a day later on in the week sometimes they will have the DL designation and sometimes not.

WHHEEEEEEEE!

I'd gladly go back to paying 10 bucks for a stattracker that has tech support and works 100% of the time. Mine has been out 24 hours now, which is pretty ridiculous and very annoying.

I tried to put a claim in for Brad Miller and ran into yet another issue:

In one of my leagues he is in the data base, but on waivers until July 1, which seems normal.
In another league however, he is not even listed. Run a search for his name and nothing is found.
Both leagues use the same setting "As soon as Yahoo! adds them".
Whats going on here?

Yes, its free, but Yahoo is really dropping the ball this year - especially in the past 3 weeks.
And they ARE making money off us with advertisng $$$ so it would great if they kept the game running smoothly. At least make it playable, which was not the case on several occasions recently.

I think it is quite ridiculous that you can't make roster adjustments from the iPhone app. That is a problem that needs to be solved on the immediate.

Genie

Will some of the new good features for football trickle into baseball by end of this season? Are push notifications for all transactions?


Push notifications coming soon!
Read custom recaps for each week's match-up during the season and, coming soon, recaps of your league's draft results.
And the keeper improvements


Thx

Tried to respond to this a few days ago, but wasn't able to due to Cafe' technical difficulties, and now Miller's state has changed :-( Just in case I can still figure out what was going on, what is the league ID of the league where you were unable to find him?

Grey at Razzball:

Bryce Harper – 1-for-4 and his 13th homer as he was activated from the DL. Unfortch, he sat in our DL slot yesterday in a Yahoo league. It’s really stupid that you need to bring a guy off the DL the day before in Yahoo leagues. What would this take to fix? Possibly twenty minutes by a competent programmer? There’s no reason why it’s set-up this way. It’s not like it heightens my fantasy game play by dropping a random middle reliever for a fresh-off-the-DL player. Could one of our more ridiculous commenters harass someone at 1-800-Yahoo-Dum?

Dude all you needed to do was pay attention and you could have dropped your random middle reliever the night before after the games were over and started Harper the next day. Could one of our more ridiculous commenters harass Grey at 1-800-Grey-Dumb? :-D

This was in #15285
He finally showed up in that league and I was able to put a claim in for him late on June 30th and it processed the next morning (July 1).
