Yahoo Blows!!

Postby Leiter Fan » Sat May 15, 2004 1:02 pm

Is it just me, or are other people having the problem with Yahoo not listing ANY of this afternoon's games, and not even showing who's playing?

Its not even showing a link to the preview page for each game. This is ridiculous!!!

Yeah Yahoo is having some problems. Just go to MLB.com and you can see the lineups.

Yes Yahoo! is great for free but if you pay for StatTracker or the Plus services it's crapola. Much better services out there for the same price. Just my $.02.

Sportsline's the way to go. Had zero problems this year, zero problems the past five.

They must do something quite different for fantasy baseball then because their fantasy football service is one of the worst out there.

If you are in a Yahoo league, the $10 is a very good deal. It will automatically list your specific players. It works 99% of the time so even though we all like to complain when it stops working for a little while, overall you'll be happy for $10.

If you don't like Sportsline than this is a moot point but the basic Sportsline team is $10 and it comes with live stats built-in.
