  1. Create a new pitching stat category; total walks allowed + total hits allowed (NOT whip)

    I have been a Yahoo! user/fantasy participant since the year 2000. I play fantasy baseball, basketball, hockey, NCAA march madness, and football with you. I have never left yahoo! for any other fantasy sports site. I have a simple request of you and am very hopeful you are able to grant it asap, prior to the 2017 fantasy baseball season.

    My long-standing head-to-head league is moving away from ERA/WHIP. We want to steer clear of ratio/percentage stat categories.

    Therefore, I am asking that you add a new stat category for pitching which combines walks allowed and hits allowed.

    On this…

    • It would be great if you allowed Commissioner's to set the playoff weeks much earlier.

      Most managers are ready to focus on Football during the month of September. I would love to be able to set the first playoff date sometime in early August.

      • More flexible playoff sytems

        ideas include:
        - eliminate consolation bracket; once you are eliminated from playoffs, you are locked out just like those teams who miss playoffs and there are no meaningless "consolation" games that no one pays attention to
        - two week championship as an option
        - shorter regular season due to MLB teams shutting down pitchers, resting players, etc. in september. The championships should be wrapped up by time fantasy football rolls around (week one of the NFL should be championship week for fantasy baseball)

          • Please fix the NA SLOT problem! It's been 5 Years now you promised!

            We dynasty players were promised the ability to have and KEEP prospects with the addition of NA slots to carry prospects year to year. But each year the NA designation disappears and your prospects are thrown onto the active roster and have to be selected as active players to lock in as keepers. Which destroys any illusion of playing dynasty ball.

            You either have to drop those prospects or some vets from your active roster. You also have to load any new NA players "through" the active roster and then shove them down into NA slots after the draft when…

                • Add Ability to Create Polls on the Message Board

                  Add the option to create a poll on the league message board, where each manager can vote on a topic once and the votes are automatically tallied.

                  This would make league management easier -- rule changes, league settings, etc. could be voted on -- and league participation more fun, as it'd provide another level of smack talk (voting on worst draft picks, trades, roster moves, etc.).

                  • Off season trading.

                    Speaking on behalf of both of my leagues, I think off season trading should be allowed. You should be allowed to trade draft picks and players. Not only does it keep people motivated but keeps baseball alive all year long. I don't see no reason why this shouldn't be allowed effective immediately.

                    • Fantasy Baseball 2017 Season: FEATURE WISH LIST

                      Hey Yahoo and fantasy players!

                      Happy New Year! It's almost that time of the year again!

                      I'm just creating this post and posting a few features that we would hope to have when the new season begins. Please add any other features you'd like to see in the comments. This way feature requests are all organized in one big thread and easier for Yahoo to review maybe.

                      1. Roster maximum size of 40-45 players for custom/private leagues - nowadays more people play in dynasty leagues and the current max of 30 is too small. 40 would be ideal.

                      2. Stat…

                      • max innings

                        My league's suggestion is to add a max innings pitched limit as well. Either for the playoffs or both regular season and playoffs. Because right now, in playoffs, some sp's have double the starts of the opposing team's pitchers.

                        • Please allow players who's games are cancelled to be taken out of starting lineups

                          In many cases throughout the baseball season, players will experience weather cancellations. It would be nice to be able to replace a player who's game is cancelled with a bench player that can play so long as the replacement players game hasn't started yet.

                                It is very painful right now to manually scroll through the player list searching or the players you want to pre-rank. Why not allow a search bar to type in the player names, which can then be clicked and dragged over. Also, why don't the player ranks on the pre-draft tool follow the rankings on the player bar?

                                  • Draft Pick Management - Ability to Remove Keeper Slots from Trade Resources

                                    So we have been running a keeper league for the past 5-6 years... and as commissioner I keep running into the same issue every year, minor and fixable but this should be an option.

                                    I should be able to remove the keeper slots from the draft pick(s) pool available for teams to use in trades.

                                    • STD DEV Standard Deviation for ERA and WHIP done incorrectly

                                      STD DEV Standard Deviation for ERA and WHIP is done incorrectly.

                                      As is high ERA & WHIP are given positive marks, when they should be negative. Making the total column completely useless.

                                      Adding a -1 multiplier to the formula used should solve the problem.
