I imagine it will count towards week 1 stats. Yes, 3 start week for Kershaw. Of course i'm sure the start date will be configurable and you could choose to not count those stats.

Couple of questions:

1) Any plans to update the player ranking editor? The functionality of the one thats been around the last 5-6 years is terrible. Takes fooooorevvvvvverrrrr, no drag n drop, too easy to accidentally delete all your work, etc.

2) Will the message board issues be fixed? Last year in one of my leagues the image and link shortcuts never worked at all, and messages constantly vanished into thin air. Really a pain, especially in keeper leagues where trades and keepers are often posted on the board. The entire interface was pretty clunky, especially with the way the text popup window worked as well.

Considering Guy Smiley hasn't been logged in here since early November makes one wonder if the questions/suggestions posted here even blimp on Y!'s radar.


Anyway, in case anyone from Y! reads this I'd like to know if there are any plans to release the Mobile Y! Fantasy App for Windows Phone?

Thanks.

Not sure if these are Yahoos rankings that will be used in game, or just their expert rankings.
Weird that Votto is ranked ahead of Fielder in the overall ranks, but if you sort by "1B" only, Fielder is ranked higher. How is that possible?

Three guys ranked fielder above votto, so he's higher on the 1B rankings. However, one of the guys who ranked votto higher, ranked him significantly higher in the overall ranking so the average of those rankings put votto ahead.

But that means they are still weighting the individual experts rankings differently between the overall, and the individual positions.

Just a warning....
BE SURE TO SAVE ALL MESSAGES, COMMISH NOTES, ETC BEFORE POSTING TO YAHOO!

I just spent about 20 minutes posting a commish note to tell everyone about new league members/rule updates/etc and when I hit "submit" it just sat their pending for a while, then 10 minutes later this happened:

Here's a question, is anybody else having problems slotting their players into their positions? My roster just has a listing of my players. I can't make any movements within my roster. Is this because I haven't activated the league yet?

If you renewed a keeper league and imported rosters, thats why. It just lists the players, but you cannot do anything with them as far as positions moves go. At least not until after your league has drafted.
Also if you had players in NA slots to end the season, Yahoo does not show them on the imported rosters. You have to look at the 3013 Final Rosters to see them.
