As far as starts per week, I agree that with the way the current starting lineup interface works, there would really be no good way for Yahoo to implement the feature without running into all the issues that Genie described.

Yahoo would have to change the the fundamental structure of the pitching portion of the team page and probably the way the current number of starting spots available per day (for lack of a better term) are displayed.
I'd think instead of having X number of SP spots displayed for that day, Yahoo would have to figure out some way to display X number of spots for the entire week where X is the total number of available starts - which I imagine would become problematic when pitchers make more than 1 start per week.
Bottom line, as much as several of my leagues would use this, I dont think it ever happens.

I was hoping yahoo would go back to the way the players profiles used to look, but chances are they wont. but for those interested you can still access the old profile pages using the Canadian version. what? on a players page, put ca in front of .sports.
Miguel Cabrera for example.
regular page - http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/7163/
Canadian version with ca in front - http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/7163

i like the older version and find it easier to use.

Holy cow… I like the Canadian (old US) version 1,000% better. The new version is awful.

Agreed, I remember reading somewhere (don't remember where, maybe this thread?) that the new version was here to stay though. It is unreadable. I really dislike it. In fact, the way yahoo displays stats is the #1 main reason I've adamantly stuck with yahoo for scoring all these years. I might be swayed to try another site this year for a league.

I agree.

I first started using the "new look" with Fantasy Basketball. I stopped using Yahoo to look up information… all I do is set my lineup there.

For box scores, stats, analysis, etc I just go elsewhere (a combo of Basketball Reference, ESPN, 82 games, etc.).

Is that search bar back again too? takes up an inch and of half of the screen for absolutely nothing useful.

For h2h leagues, any chance of an option to play against the league average? I hate bye weeks so last year I had to beg someone to play to give us even numbers. He was not motivated to compete.

Just a thought

I wish Yahoo would go to their old player page layout. You know where the player had his statistics listed and such? I liked the old layout. This new one: not so much.
I love mock drafts.
