I am looking for a custom league to join but I prefer daily lineups. Whether or not a league is set for daily or weekly lineups should be listed on the board...or at least you should be able to filter daily/weekly as you can filter the draft type or the scoring type.

You're in business. They are running into April.

Disappointed to find that Yahoo Sports is persisting with the dumbed-down MLB scores page introduced last year with that awful redesign.

Really, what sports fan looks at this and says, "Yeah, this abbreviated version is better than..."

this version from 2013, before Yahoo Sports decided to screw with a good thing.

Thanks Yahoo, I'll be going elswhere for my MLB scores this year. More data helps me manage my fantasy teams more effectively.

I't's baffling that Yahoo Sports doesn't understand that and presents instead some Marissa Mayer feng shui version of sports data.

Thankfully most providers recognize that more data -- not less data -- is better, like NBC Sports:

agree with the post above ^^

I am here to ask if there is a EDIT WEEKLY LINEUP button somewhere (I cant find it) or do i have to click and load next day next day next day etc... until I get to Monday?

Also, is it possible to have an option to set the game times to something other then pacific time? I get confused sometimes, and it can cause me to not get my lineup in on time.

Agreed, I'm looking for a new scoreboard, loved the old simple yahoo scoreboard, but the new one is a joke. Who homered? It doesn't even say. And they make the horrible copy writing mistake of putting white letters on a black background, that is beyond amateurish. No one can read it and no one will now. Thanks yahoo.

That NBC one looked good. I'll give it a try. Thanks for posting it.

Honestly, I don't blame you for looking elsewhere for box scores. It's hot garbage and we know it. It will be fixed. I just don't have a timeline for you right now. There is a commitment on the team to fix the redesign; we are working through the steps to get there. And before you say, just revert it to what it was, that is neither easy, nor the right answer.

So, I won't ask you to "stick with us" so long as we look like this but I will ask that you check back to see if we have cleaned up the mess...then stick with us.

I can no longer look at a "Batter vs Pitcher" for a whole career, only individual years. Last year I could always look at a batters career numbers against a pitcher to make lineup decisions, pretty annoying that this was taken out especially since the matchup ratings are fraught with inaccurate info ie. Player X has not fared well against right handed pitchers like Pitcher X, when the pitcher is actually a lefty.

Last year, when you looked at your team page, the probable pitcher who your batter was facing was always listed, which allowed for very easy access to that players "batter vs pitcher" data.

So many good features all annihilated. I hate this even more than I hated the new fantasy football layout at first (before I realized I could change it to white background).

Also, there's a glitch with the score graphic on the right side of the screen where it often shows the bases loaded on games where the bases are not indeed loaded. I can't tell you how many times in this only 3 day old season that I have already seen the bases loaded, thought to myself "Oh my gosh, I need to click over there and see what is happening" only to find that the bases or empty or only a runner on first.

Edit: Looking at the game slate what do you know? Bases loaded in Miami vs Colorado--- Psyche!

So as a rule we don't add stats after season start as it can compromise scoring. However, this is week one and we can help out.

Post the league ID here and I will take care of it.
