You are most likely right. ;-D

When I started we had to call our lineup in each Sunday night and we would get the week's results and standings in the mail each week. I guess some people still play that way. Crazy if you ask me.

I remember doing that. Seems like the dark ages compared to now. I used to keep all my own scores for everyone in the league because I couldn't wait for the once a week updates. So much better now with everything being instant. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

wow, you guys are old :-D

my first league was on Sandbox. I liked it, and wouldn't mind doing it if it were free, but unfortunately I'm nto loaded and I'm an unemployed college student.

I wish I had discovered fantasy baseball when all the good services were free. Yahoo is a dying breed, and I can see them charging a fee soon. They already charge for StatTracker - my guess is within the next few years they will start charging a smal amount per account in order to be given access to the 4 leagues that they limit us to.

I'd lay money that this is the last year Yahoo is free. I'll bet they're like $80 a league next year. They'll come in lower than everyone else.
