That is correct. We allow for you to trade picks for the following season. We understand the use case where people might want to trade picks for the current season prior to the draft; I think that is interesting in the context of year-round leagues, which we also appreciate the interest in. We also understand that some leagues would like to trade more than one year in advance, though demand for that has been quite low.

I promise I won't ask anymore, but, Genie, will Ruiz and Grandal be added to the player pool for leagues using the "Wait Until Called Up" setting?

I will answer you: I don't know.

Am I missing something on the pitcher named Carlos Martinez in the player pool? Is that supposed to be the Cardinals prospect Carlos Martinez? It is listed as the one who last pitched with the Marlins in 2009 and is now retired.

Well, the same could be said about Henry Owens, a legit Boston Red Sox prospect, or a failed reliever listed as a Marlins pitcher and hasn't pitched in the majors since 2007.

Henry Owens

Also, surprised some of the 2012 draft guys from college that are closer to the majors, aside from Mike Zunino, like Gausman, Shaffer, Zimmer, Heaney, and Marrero haven't been added and some like Wacha and Stratton even made it all the way to AA in just a few months as pros.

Is there an option to change the H2H playoff matchups to 2 weeks?
Ideally I want to make the first round (when division winners have a bye) 1 week, the semis 2 weeks, and the championship 2 weeks.
For the past several seasons the standard Championship week was actually ~10 days which was nice. However this year the season ends on a Sunday so its a normal 1 week match.

1. I spend a half hour writing out a complicated message board post.
2. I click submit.
3. Yahoo prompts me for my password
4. I enter password and hit submit.
5. I enter a hole in the Yahoo universe and my half hour of typing is gone.
6. I throw my computer through a window

It would be nice to have that option just for the championship round. Although, we probably need sub-option to allow weekly leagues to either set or don't set their roster for the 2nd week.

I've only gone as far as step 5.

In general, I like Yahoo's message board, even though there have been several complaints in this forum.

Update: I entered my password after submitting a message board post and I didn't enter a black hole, like it would last year. My message posted. It may have been fixed.
