Windows 8 laptop with Firefox, same results. Tried launching from desktop using IE instead of Firefox, no difference. I think this has happened before, but was fixed the next day. Thanks for giving us a place to turn to! ;-D

I play in a homer league where I can only have players on my team that have played for my team in the past or present and I easily max out the 50 player allotment... This doesn't sound like it would be a difficult change (assuming that it is a constant that can be modified)...

Any chance?

TIA

Bump, yet again...

Update?

there is a way to look for players just on the DL.
PLAYERS, MLB Roster Changes, Disabled List.
that lists players that have come off and gone on the DL.

I have a suggestion for yahoo.
when you send an email to managers from Email League, the email goes to whatever email service you use. could it be possible to have it where when you send/get an email, it comes to an email box on your fantasy baseball page? I think that would be easier than going to whatever email service you use to get/check email.

SpecialFNK, that is not necessary. You have to have a Yahoo screen name to sign up for a Yahoo league. When you sign in each day to check your team or set your lineup, it tells you if you have mail to your Yahoo screen name/mail acct. Any time you are logged in, you will be notified.

my email for my yahoo fantasy baseball is my gmail.
I usually have another tab open on firefox for just my email, so I don't have to go and check every so often if I have a trade proposed.
but sometimes if I send an email to someone through yahoo fantasy baseball, I don't know if they have checked and got it. I know in my private league when a manager is active, but that doesn't mean they will have went to check their email if they have their email at another non yahoo service.

i dont understand the DL thing at all.
On your home page, on the bottom right of the transactions box, there is a link for DL. ;-7

I would rather have a list of players that are currently on the DL with stats available... If they can do that for probables, it shouldn't be difficult to do that for DL and NA players... The other list is unusable IMO...

Genie, hate to be a pain, but any ideas why I can't add anyone to my watch list? I've tried on multiple computers, web browsers, etc...the only I seem to be able to is on the iPhone app.

Do you currently have 50 on your watch list? You can't add any more than that... Which is REALLY inconvenient...

if a prospect is not in yahoo, does that mean the only way to add that player to the player pool is waiting until they are called up? yahoo can't go ahead and add a bunch of prospects not yet in yahoo on say June 1st?
