Almost positive it was already added this season, along with SV+HOLDS-BS


OK cool. Looking at the list of stat categories available in the Help, I didn't see it. Maybe the page was out of date or I just plain missed it.

Still awaiting response on the Bogaerts question. A Yahoo brain fart or what? Would like to know why it happened. Thanks.

Not a baseball question per se.

But what happened to Y! Fantasy Football.
The new layout design is just horrific to navigate and looks absolutely depressing.
Please fix that. It's almost unbearable.

Layout looks the same to me & navigates just like it always has - & I kind of like the new colors.

Another high five for Yahoo!

For using the team images instead of the user's profile on the Overview page in the sections All Updates, Smack Talk, etc.

A small change with a big effect, because consistency of the images is easier for users to process info.

Hopefully, the Recent Transactions section is also changed to the team's images soon.

PS
I like the All Time tab too. Is it possible to update a past team's image, because there are the default exclamation mark images in lieu of the custom images?

Team vs. user images really are different things, and always should be appropriate in context. A team adds a player; it doesn't matter who actually pushed the button. A user posts a message to the message board; it often does matter who did that. So I don't think the best answer is having team images *everywhere*. But everything in the All Updates section could/should be team specific. I'd also agree with you that I don't see harm in having the Transactions module use team images; I *think* everything that shows up there is really more particular to a team than a user.

Something strange is going on with smack talk and trading block posts. Everything anyone posts is showing up as "said' by the commissioner. This is happening in multiple leagues. Any clue?

I rarely come to this site anymore, but just had to today because I know the Genie still frequents around here.

The new layout for the Sports site and Fantasy Football is just absolutely atrocious. Dark colors on top of dark colors, font overlapping player photos, removal of important info such as Batter vs Tonights pitcher. It is just a complete and utter mess. It has also made things almost un-clickable on my smart phone. I try to click team and end up in draft central etc...

Please, please, please tell me someone just made a huge mistake and this new layout is not going to stay.
