What a strange comment...they aren't. :-?

Genie,

Is a salary cap league in the future for baseball whether it's a plus or free league? Just curious. That is the only thing other than a minor league roster that I think Yahoo lacks that CBS offers. Thanks in advance.

This would be an excellent option.

Is it safe to assume that stattracker will be free for baseball next year? I'm not so sure. There's a lot more pressure for them to make football free because of advertisements from multiple sites and the higher popularity of fantasy football. There are more die-hards that play fantasy baseball that will continue to fork over $10 a pop and Yahoo would probably have a hard time turning it's back on that revenue. Fantasy football is for the masses and $10 will make them shy away and choose another provider. I think stattracker will probably be free next year, but I don't see it as a sure thing. It comes down to what makes them more money, $10 from each purchase of stattracker or advertising revenue from website traffic.
