I had 4 pitchers going last night, saw their stats listed last night, as of a few minutes ago, all pitching stats are 0's.... it must be a system glitch.

Genie, any info here?

There was a league note most of the day mentioning the issue and clarifying that we're working on it. I believe by now most or all leagues are fully repaired.

Looks like something similar happened this morning. No updates from last week yet, and pending trades that were supposed to go through today are still pending.

it's not unusual for it to say at the top of my page, a stat correction was applied to player X, but damn how many stat corrections were made for Sunday?! my one team I have 13 players with a stat correction for Sunday. and if/once you click on the link for stat corrections for Sunday, it's a huge list. holy crap.

Ya I'm wondering whats up with this. It's very confusing trying to determine how much of these corrections effected my H2H leagues right now.

Okay. Without drowning you guys in too much of our misery, here is the short version of what has happened. And yes, this is the short version.

- Last week, we had a problem in the middle of our overnight processing. By the time the dust cleared, leagues were kinda half updated. The obvious thing people saw was a point where hitters were updated but pitchers weren't. It was actually messier than that; if you looked reeeeally carefully, or were in leagues with unusual stats, we also weren't counting fielding stats, hitting for the cycle, or grand slams (Corey Hart had one, just to make our life more difficult. Jerk.)
- We finally got that sorted out, but all the manual steps we had to do (which basically included updating twice on one day, which we normally do NOT want to do) confused processing for the next day. But that got sorted out, and we thought we were finally in the clear.
- Until this morning, when corrections ran. We then noticed that when we updated twice on the same day, the first update said, "These bajillion batters got these bajillion stats on day X." When we updated again to just get the pitchers, it said, "Hmm. I thought all these batters got stats on day X, but here I am updating for day X and there are no batter stats. Those must have all been mistakes." So it noted a bajillion stat corrections to remove all the hitting stats for that day. Thanks.

So one of my fearless coworkers has been performing surgery all morning to fix that. At this point I think he has it all sorted out, and things are underway, it just takes time to run.

This has been the messiest stat situation we've had in the... 5? or so years I've worked here on fantasy sports. But by later this morning we should have things restored to an accurate state. Believe me when I say we hate this stuff as much as you do. But as a result it is really important to us to get it right, and a lot of work has gone into trying to properly sort out this mess. Almost there.

For the sake of accuracy, my summary was a bit inaccurate. All the flawed stat corrections were actually double counting batter stats, not removing them. But they're getting fixed in any case.
