    Hey Steve,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    If you are coming across racist team names and logos, we request that you submit a request for support at help.yahoo.com with a screenshot of the racist logo or name so we can get this escalated to the proper team for further investigation.

    Thanks,

  2. Get real

    your fantasy baseball interface is a complete joke so far. incorrect player info, misleading/wrong info posted for players on a daily basis, and having multitudes of players available in the free agent pool that really shouldn't be there, but excluding a guy like Jordan Montgomery who not only already logged a game this year, but has plenty of past experience and should have been part of the player pool from Day 1 of this season. Wake the F up, Yahoo!!!

    Hi Jon,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Jordan Montgomery is listed as a Pitcher (P) in our game. If your league does not roster this position, then he will not be available in the player pool until he earns a designation that is used by your league. He would need to make 3 starts to earn Starting Pitcher (SP) eligibility and 5 relief appearances to earn Relief Pitcher (RP) eligibility.

    Thanks,

  3. MLB Post Season You Pick em

    Just like the NCAA Basketball Tournament, but now, with MLB postseason in more of tournament like post season, why not have a similar Pick 'em? Before the Post season begins pick the winners of each match up and then track to see who wins the World Series.

  4. If a team is in quarantine and cannot play for an extended period of time, why aren't these players placed on the COVID-19 IL?

    If a team (cough cough Miami Marlins) is in quarantine and cannot play for an extended period of time, why aren't these players placed on the COVID-19 IL? I'm not dropping Brandon Kintzler to get a pitcher on another team that will eventually have to deal with an outbreak.

  5. John Gant's appearances on Sept 5 and Sept 8 should have earned him Holds or Yahoo's definition of Holds is misleading

    On Sept 8 Gant entered the game with a 5-2 lead, pitched an inning, and exited the game without giving up the lead.

    On Sept 5 Gant entered the game with a 5-1 lead and runners on 1st and 2nd, with the tying run on deck, pitched 1.1 innings and exited without giving up the lead.

    Neither was counted as a Hold but both are Holds under Yahoo's rules, excerpted below:

    HOLD:
    A hold can be earned by more than one reliever and is credited when the reliever comes into a save situation, records at least 1 out, and gives…

    Hello,

    Thanks for leaving feedback.

    In the two games you have referenced. Gant entered both games in the 5th inning.

    In our game, a save situation is not considered if the pitcher enters the game prior to the 6th inning. So Gant did not meet the criteria for a Hold as he did not enter the game in a save situation.

    Thanks,

  6. Nick Anderson save on Sept. 23

    TB's Nick Anderson should have been given credit for a save on Wednesday, Sept. 23. He entered the game against the Mets with a three-run lead (8-5) and finished the game with the lead in tact.

    Hi Sam,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The Continuous and FAAB waiver system was introduced this year into Public Leagues as it was viewed as the most fair method of waivers for our members.

    We will pass your feedback to our product team. If you wish to use a different option for waivers, you do have the option to set up your own league or join a Custom League set up with the wavier system you’re interested in playing with during the season.

    Thanks,

  9. Austin Nola's position designation needs to be changed to include catcher. He is the regular catcher for the Seattle Mariners this year.

    Catcher needs to be added to Austin Nola's position designation. He is the regular catcher for the Seattle Mariners this year. Catcher was his primary position in the minor leagues. He caught several games for the Mariners last year as well as 55 games for the AAA Tacoma Rainiers.

    1 comment  ·  Position Eligibility  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    The number of games a player completes determines rookie status or player eligibility.

    Position eligibility – 5 starts or 10 total appearances in a position.

    Use the position eligibility countdown
    The number under each position shows how many games remain until the player is eligible for that position. If an “E” appears in the column, they’re already eligible to play.

    1. Under the “Players” tab, click Position Eligibility.
    2. Type the player’s name into the available field.
    3. Click Search.

  10. I'm unclear as to why a player who debuted (braxton garrett) is not yet available as a free agent in the league I'm in. Can he be added?

    Hi Andrew,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Top prospects and new players are available at different times based on your league’s settings and are subject to your team’s waiver rules.

    “New Players Become Available” setting locks post draft – Neither commissioners nor Yahoo Customer Care are able to edit this post-draft.

    During spring training any player already in our system on a MLB 40-man roster may show as “active” until the regular season begins.

    “As soon as Yahoo adds them” option – Players are available as soon as they’re added to a team’s 40-man roster. While players outside the 25-man roster can’t be used until after September 1st, you can claim your stake early.

    “Wait until called up to the Majors” option – Players won’t be available until they’ve been called up to the Majors and are part of a team’s 25-man roster.

  11. please open the month of July for fantasy baseball drafting this year

    Hey Vincent,

    Our engineering team is working to get draft dates available in July. We don’t have an exact date of when new dates will be available but check your league for when they do become available.

  12. PLEASE ALLOW ROSTER CHANGES THE SAME DAY FOR SEASONAL FANTASY BASEBALL, BASKETBALL, HOCKEY SPORTS

    Adding/dropping players should be implemented THE SAME DAY AS THE TRANSACTION (such as ESPN on all other fantasy interfaces) vs. being implemented the next calendar day. As long as a player does not play their game that respective day, I should be able to make necessary line-up changes that same day to maximize my line-up for daily fantasy sports (hockey, baseball, basketball, etc.). This is one thing about Yahoo fantasy I despise and makes me want to transition all of my leagues to ESPN. Please change this.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Public and Pro use the Daily – Today setting in baseball, basketball and hockey for lineup/roster changes so when transactions are processed they happen right away. If you are in a Private League and transactions are reflected the following day, then the league is using Daily – Tomorrow and that is a setting the league commissioner can change.

  14. Last Name Glitch on App

    I've noticed a glitch on the App for Fantasy Baseball where "Jr." is showing up as the last name of the player. For example Ronald Acuna Jr is showing up as "R. Jr" and Vladimir Guerrero Jr is showing up as "V. Jr". Could you please look into having this corrected to include the last name of the player rather than just the Jr.

  15. The "Matchup Rating" for LAA 1B Jared Walsh is for a pitcher

    and has been for as long as I've been checking. Does anybody on the backend preview this before it's posted? There are a finite amount of MLB players - data should be verified by someone at Yahoo. Hope this gets addressed.

  16. Wow. Baseball playoff determination tie-breaker. An absolute joke.

    We have settings for playoff tie-breaker as the head-to-head reg season record. That makes sense... yet the default playoff seeding tie-breaker is The last week’s win percentage???? And this can’t be altered? This is awful. I had two of my best players returning from injury in playoff week one. But now I’m eliminated because of this idiotic setting. This is pretty bad, guys. Wow.

    Hi Anthony,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Head-to-head regular season results are not factored into the regular season tiebreakers in Yahoo Fantasy. The regular season tiebreakers can be found at https://help.yahoo.com/kb/head-to-head-scoring-yahoo-fantasy-sln6212.html.

    The commissioner of a Private League can use their tools to edit the 1st week of the playoffs before the first game begins in that week if the league wants to use their own criteria or a head-to-head criteria.

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    We apologize if the changes in your fantasy league did not keep.

    Unfortunately, since there are less than 2 weeks left in the season, there would be no way to have an 8 team playoff as this requires a 3 week playoff.

  19. Import Pre-Draft Rankings

    There should be an easier way to set up your own customized pre-draft rankings. Many of us will have external rankings (i.e. in Excel) that we want to have as our default Yahoo rankings and available for the draft. It would be much more efficient if we could import those rankings. The biggest issue would be making sure those external player rankings tie to a player in Yahoo's database. You could assign a player ID to each player and allow us to export that player list. Then we could adjust the rankings externally (i.e. in Excel, which is much easier…

  20. Fantasy Draft - Move multi-position players

    In fantasy drafts (mostly baseball, but others, as well) multipositional players are locked in one position. For example, if I draft Max Muncy (1B, 2B, 3B eligibility) it automatically slots him at first on my draft screen. I'd like to be able to move him to 2B or 3B depending on where I'd like to play him. Keeping him at 1B leads to confusion later in the draft when I may skip drafting a 1B or I do and it's filling up my bench while starting positions are still available.
