  2. Count Pitchers' Batting Stats

    If your player produces stats that your league selected for scoring, they should count. Your player's hitting stats shouldn't be omitted just because he pitches. You can make it an option to erase pitchers' hitting stats if people don't like that concept, but the default shouldn't be to erase stats arbitrarily.

    I make this argument every year in some fashion, doing the same now. Yahoo wrote back to me many years ago on this, saying essentially that pitchers' batting stats aren't counted because they're not good. Unsatisfactory explanation, but since it's the only one Yahoo's provided, my response is where…

  3. Create a new hitting category - Doubles & Triples.

    Hello!

    Hoping for this upcoming season, you can create an additional hitting category: Doubles & Triples. My league does not want two separate categories, but we also do not want to use the “XBH” category. Creating a “2B & 3B” would be phenomenal. Thank you!

  4. 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…

  6. Stat Corrections need to happen timely!

    Stat corrections that are deemed "too late" by Yahoo are not getting factored into league scoring. This must change! Many people have money involved in these leagues and categories are not being won. FIX THIS NOW!

  7. Retro-active Line-up Changes

    Fantasy Baseball should, JUST LIKE other sports, allow the retroactive ability to change line-ups. The semi-final championship game of my baseball league had myself with Mookie Betts on the bench because the night before he was rested and didn't start/play. One of 3 outfielders in the line-up did not play that day and I tried several times to make the switch that day before the game. It wasn't allowed. I contacted Yahoo several times but to no avail. Due to THAT line-up change, I lost that game. The RBI's alone accrued by Betts would have put my team to win…

  8. Allow player sorting by previous year average stats

    There is "total", "std deviation", and "average" options for all other stat categories, except for previous year stats. The previous years' stats is the only category where the "average" option is not available, only "total" and "std deviation".

  9. 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. CHANGE THE “7 Minimum Inmings Pitched” rule to 25 or 30. SP are worthless in your leagues.

    Please change the “Minimum 7 Innings Pitched” rule to 25 or 30 Innings. You have all but negated starting pitching with your settings, especially second and third tier pitchers. In addition, you do not force managers to pick their starting pitchers each week. Owvers also pick RP over starters. Moreover, hitters are much more important than pitchers, which is insane. Finally, you will continue to lose players to RTSports and Fantrax if you keep this rule. Please up it to 25 or 30 Minimum Innings Pitched. Thank you

  12. Allow Commissioners in Rotisserie leagues to set minimum and maximum innings pitched

    Commissioner should be able to set minimum and maximum innings pitched.
    Currently, commissioners can only set maximum innings pitched.
    Please add minimum innings pitched in rotisserie leagues.

  13. ROTO leagues have Maximum innings, why can't we get Minimum innings also?

    Allow commissioners the ability to set minimum inning limitations similar to setting maximum innings.
    Leagues that don't use limits or don't want them, just turn them off.

  15. 2x Saves + Holds

    Adding a stat to encourage middle relievers is a difficult balancing act. Adding Holds in a league with Saves make them essentially worth equal value, which devalues the role of closers. I think that creating a stat, or functionality to allow commissioners more scoring customization, would greatly improve the long-term viability of Yahoo Fantasy Sports by providing fantasy players what they want!

    In my personal case, I want a stat that is 2x Saves + Holds, so that it combines both into one category while still prioritizing Saves.

  16. Increased Minimum Innings Pitched from 7 to 20; Require x amount of SP starts; cap closers per team

    I'm still new to H2H, and right off the bat I realized that by allowing an automatic draft to progress without making specific picks was a mistake. This specific game is all about who gets the most and best closers, maybe setup men as well. The game puts little emphasis on starting pitching unless we are talking about rock stars, because further, it's all about accuracy - ERA and WHIP. If you're going to put a SP out there, he better be accurate or he'll skew your weekly figures and you are hosed. Sure you can take K's any given…

  17. Create new scoring category for 2B+3B ... or XBH-HRs.

    I want a HR category plus a separate category that combines 2B/3B. Can't use Extra Base Hits, because that double-scores HRs.

  18. Please allow commissioners to change H2H scores retroactively

    In my custom league, we get points for off-field activities. The only way to do this with Yahoo is to create a separate spreadsheet and input all the information. This could be easily solved by allowing the league commission to retroactively change H2H scoring.

  19. For rotisserie leagues, make scoring/standings update in real time instead of overnight

    Currently, rotisserie leagues have their scoring/standings updated each night - that means you can't see how much progress you're making in a given day in real time. Scoring/stats should update in real time, or at least more periodically than daily. We have live stats for our teams, but we cannot see how everyone else is doing for that day.

  20. Add K% as batters category

    We want to replace K with with K% in our league. We prefer ratios to counting stats in our league. It promotes starting quality players and avoids ticky tacky roster moves that shouldn't matter late in the week
