  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…

  2. Add Luis Robert to Player List

    Please Add Luis Robert as Not Active player. He's been signed by the White Sox and hopefully will be added to the Fantasy game as well!

  3. 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.

  5. YAHOO...PLEASE bring back the career hitting stats vs. starting pitcher tool

    I found this comment from yahoo last year when this subject was brought up. ...this is what they wrote.

    We have added a column with the Opposing Pitcher in the My Team (Roster > Opponents) tab to provide insight into the matchup. Adding stats for a particular match-up is a tougher task, but we hope to add at some point this season.

    Career batter vs pitcher stats have been added to players pages.

    Thanks for your feedback and patience.

    My comment is why take it down again? It was obviously a hot topic that many many wanted.…

  6. 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…

  7. PPD games

    You should be allowed to swap out players when a game is PPD (as long as the game never started). Since there is no actual "start time", this should be treated like a teams off day. Players on your bench should be allowed to be substituted in until the start of THEIR game time

  9. Allow Day to Day players be moved to a non roster spot

    If a player is Day to Day the player should be able to be moved to a non roster spot so another player can be picked up to stay competitive that day. I should not be penalized because Yahoo is slow to move a day to day player to the DL that Yahoo has already reported was there. This player was also on the can't cut list so I was not able to do anything

  10. 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.

  11. 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)

  12. Minimum Innings Pitched for Rotisserie

    Although there is a "minimum innings pitched" option available for head to head leagues, I believe there needs to be one instituted for Rotisserie as well. ESPN has already adopted this feature and I believe the season long minimum should be set at 1000 innings.

    The reason this is necessary is because someone in my league employed a strategy of only drafting batters early then going after all the elite relief pitchers without having a single starting pitcher on his team. He also has many relief pitchers on his bench that he can activate during off days and some relief…

  13. Leagues that lock lineups for the week

    Leagues that lineups are set for the week need to let leagues change lineups during All Star week Yahoo needs to lock lineups on friday before the first game not on Monday. Most teams do not give rotations for the weekend until after the ASG

  14. 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…

  16. Please add Brandon Woodruff to player pool

    Brandon Woodruff was officially called up by the Brewers yesterday and added to the active 25-man roster. Though he was scratched prior to his start due to injury, he should still be added to the player pool according to your guidelines. Please do so, thanks.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.).

  20. Rhys Hoskins's LF eligibility

    From a die-hard Phillies fan in need of OF help: With Rhys Hoskins having now played 4 total games in LF including the minors, will it only take 1 more game - making it a total of 5 games started at the position -
    playing LF for him to get LF eligibility in leagues?
