If you want me to go into detail, just scratching the surface: You do not need a baseball field in the background of the player pages. You can't use a black background when the whole point of the player page is to find information quickly and move on. They eliminated many of the helpful features of the player page, such as a SP's next start (already mentioned). etc, etc....
Here's a feature that could be improved with additional data: Make available in fantasy baseball not just pitching probables for the next day, but for the next three or four days. That would be extremely valuable for streaming. Now with player pages no longer showing an SP's next scheduled start, I find myself going to the Canadian site to get that information, and -- bad for Yahoo -- going to other, competing sites of ESPN MLB Fox Sporting News and so forth.

Then, iteratively roll out group-tested and validated improvements that are agreed / proven to enhance the user experience. And do so with a top-line principle of presenting more data -- not less. One example, the "new" MLB scoreboard, and team scores/schedules, present a lot less information than the old pages (still intact on the Canadian pages).
