no stattracker doesnt. the iphone doesnt support the flash unless you jailbreak it, but you do get to see your stats live when looking at your team.


I will be purchasing an iPhone in the next few months, and was curious how it would work with Yahoo's fantasy sites. Does anyone access the site on their iPhone, and can you make changes to your roster and perform all of the other functions as you would from a computer? I remember trying to do this with my BB Pearl a year or two ago, and it did not work out too well. I was hoping the iPhone would work better.

Like someone else said, the stats do update right away. You just can't see the matchup like in stattracker. Still, having mobile access during the day has saved my butt twice already in benching guys once I had stats locked. You aren't a true fantasy player until you're driving on the freeway updating your roster. :-b


That's hilarious. I've done that before. I have a treo700wx. My phone doesn't handle the main Yahoo fantasy page well, it freezes my phone up sometimes, so I access my teams through my profile page. I also have the slingbox and MLB extra innings so I can watch every baseball game from anywhere on my phone. It makes trips to the mall with my wife much more tolerable. I've never tried to access stattracker from my phone.

One issue I have with Yahoo is that after you make roster changes it makes you log in sometimes. Then it sends you to your "My Yahoo" page and none of the changes are saved. Maybe this has been discussed before, but I find it really annoying.

x2. I don't have a problem relogging in, but it is annoying to make some changes, log in, then navigate all the way back to your team page to make the changes all over again. Since I leave myself logged into the site, the only way to get around it would be to log off then log back on. Otherwise, my favorite fantasy sports site. ;-D

Thanks Snake; that is exactly what I needed to know (maybe I'll step up my iPhone purchase now in time for football season!).

A bit off-topic, but can someone please tell me why Elijah Dukes isn't on the DL yet in Yahoo? He was placed on the DL on July 5th:
MLB.com wrote:7/5/08
...
Washington Nationals
Assigned OF Elijah Dukes to the 15-day disabled list with a meniscus tear and partial patella tendon tear in his right knee.


...3 days later he's _still_ not on the DL in Yahoo? :-C :-?

I'm assuming it's still a problem with Yahoo's stat provider?

Nope. He's not on the DL. We checked today, assuming our provider was slacking. Not so. The guy is on the operating table, but not on the DL.

He was just placed on the DL per MLB.com so Genie is right.

So, apparently mlb.com jumped the gun by stating on July 5th that the Nats "Assigned OF Elijah Dukes to the 15-day disabled list".

:-C "Somebody got some 'splainin' to do!" (...in my best Cuban accent.)

EDIT: Ok, mlb.com apparently removed that transaction between the time I posted on this thread and now. :-S

YA EDIT: Ok, mlb.com apparently moved the transaction from July 5th to July 8th.

I give.

YA YA EDIT: Apparently he made it to the Yahoo DL between when you posted and now. I feel like I'm in some kind of time warp.

Regardless, all is well. Thanks! ;D :-°
