  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)

            • MLB PLAYER PAGE

              What did u guys do to the MLB player pages?! There are no longer stats for batters vs the opposing pitcher NOR the stats for the starting pitcher vs the opposing team?! AND when on a pitchers page, clicking batter vs. pitcher should show the stats for the team he's facing at the time!...Are u guys serious with that?!?!

              • Please bring back the ability to add pictures and GIFs in the message board! (image, images, pics)

                That was literally the only reason my league still uses Yahoo! Fantasy Sports. The quality of the site is as sufficient as other sites, but where you guys really stood out was in the ability of the league to stay connected and banter with GIFs and Pics in the league message board. It really is not that difficult (I know that you know this), and as of right now I just code the image or gif in myself. The problem is that it is a hassle, and not everyone in my league knows how to do it. Please, please, please…

                • Allow limits on pitching in "Head-to-Head - Points" leagues

                  Limits on pitching (as well as hitting) exist in "Points" leagues. Why ON EARTH do they they not exist in "Head-to-Head - Points" leagues? I'm talking specifically about the "Max Innings" option. Without such a limit, everyone in my league would use a 10-man rotation- the incentives would be there to use as many starting pitchers as possible.

                  Further, the ideal formats for pitching limits would be "Max Games Started" and "Max Pitching Appearances." I'd imagine most leagues would set the Max Games Started limit at 162 and tailor the Max Pitching Appearances to the number of SP and RP…

                  • 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.).

                          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.

                              • Please allow lineup changes when there is a game postponed due to bad weather.

                                Please see if you can allow players to be subbed out of the lineup when their game is postponed due to bad weather. I am screwed today because I did not get to my fantasy lineup in time and a game was postponed, now I have a dead spot in my lineup today.

                                Can you please see if this can be fixed and if the game is postponed that you can unlock the player and they can be subbed out? Thank you.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Improve pre-draft rankings

                                        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?

                                        • Should a suspended player like Marte be required to remain on the active roster?

                                          Allow the suspended player to be on the inactive roster.
