No.


ahh crap, that's not the answer I was hoping for. :-P

Guy or anyone here that knows,

When you renew a league from last year, invites go out automatically to all managers from last year. How do you send a second invite to those who have hidden emails?

Thanks!

(yes this about football, but it probably applies to baseball also)

Yahoo! ;-) doesn't have any way to set a custom schedule during the playoffs. It is a tough problem, particularly in a game like baseball. By the time the regular season ends, the playoffs have basically begun, so there isn't a great time for the schedule to be set. Way back in the day when I worked there :-D , I think the feedback from the Cafe' had made it clear that mostly people really wanted better/different options for seeding, rather than actually setting the schedule, but you might have some wacky example where you want more than that.

Someone PLEASE explain how Xander Bogaerts did not go through waivers today. I have the setting in my league as "Wait until called up" when new players are added to the game. Why does Yahoo not follow their own rules? Bogaerts got added to the game in every league that has this setting this morning. In every league, he was a FA. Major glitch in a keeper league for people who save their FAAB budgets all year for a prospect like this. Someone please enlighten me here.

Not baseball related but hopefully yahoo would consider adding a bye week column in team and player pages.

Are you asking about the fantasy schedule? That is still there. Click Schedule on the Standings module on your league home page and you will see the week-by-week schedule for your H2H league. The other spot you can see fantasy week schedule is on the right, where you can see the present week match-up and click on the next two weeks.

If you are talking about something else, let me know and I will try to help.


After clicking the "Schedule" tab, there used to be two entries, by team and by week. After clicking on "by week", there was a head-to-head schedule for printing that would be something like this:

Week 1
Team A vs. Team B
Team C vs. Team D
Team E vs. Team F
Team G vs. Team H
Team I vs. Team J

Week 2
Team A vs. Team C
Team E vs. Team G
Team I vs. Team B
Team D vs. Team F
Team H vs. Team J

and so on...

OK cool. Looking at the list of stat categories available in the Help, I didn't see it. Maybe the page was out of date or I just plain missed it.
