Stattracker has been just fine here though. Same thing as last year, and no complaints or problems for me.
Add/Drops don't take effect until the next day in most leagues at most sites, so switching doesn't really help that. If you think not having immediate adds/drops is bad, my Sportsline leages are weekly transactions , meaning nothing goes into effect until the following Monday when the new week begins.
What DL system problem are you having? In a private league, you can select the number of DL spots you want to have, so that shouldn't be the problem. I do know some people have to DL a guy, and then DL them the next day to get it to work, but the majority of us don't have that problem. All I have to do is move a guy who's eligible to the DL, click submit, and then I can pick someone else up. Works that way in any league I play, be it Yahoo, or CBS, so don't expect anything to get any better there.
So while I disagree about Yahoo being crap (because it certainly isn't), CBS might be the way for you to go next year simply due to players not being availiable very quickly (usually--once in awhile Yahoo surprises us there, but not often).

The DL problem is that Yahoo is sometimes extremely slow to add a player to the DL-eligible list. When you can finally DL him, any pickup you make isn't good until the following day. Consider Chacin - he was DL'ed by his team at about 10:00 at night. Yahoo did not DL him until the day after next, which is some 30 hours later. His replacement was then picked up by me but wasn't reflected on the squad until the next day. That's three days between team DL for Chacin and having an active replacement.
StatTracker has developed a habit of not adding runs to individual players until the end of the inning, which was not the case last year. Also, it sometimes calculates ERA on the fly and sometimes it doesn't. Neither of these are biggies, but it has also stopped updating several games as they are in progress, while others continue as normal. On one occasion, there were two games hung. The text has a tendency to overflow it's allotted area too, probably a problem with the Java application.
Anyway, it seems there's probably no better option, so thanks for the feedback again. I use MFL for Fantasy Football, so I'm probably just spoiled.
