  4. Chat App on Phone Gone Bonkers! Please Fix ASAP!

    The Chat App now dings every time a player is dropped, added, streamed whatever. There is a Transactions area where the, you know, TRANSACTIONS should go. Not into the chat room.

    Geez now every time I think a league mate is starting a CHAT and I go out there is just a notice that the Pickled Herrings team dropped Joe Blow and picked up Bob Bland. Make this nonsense stop. Please, I'm begging you. These endless false chat dings are driving me crazy and I'm in only three leagues. Can't imagine what people in a dozen of your leagues are…

  5. Flexible scheduling

    You should really allow any week to be selected for the playoffs to begin. If a league only wants to play through July for instance, they should be able to.

  6. Two teams make the championship matchup

    This would be an option for leagues with two divisions. Let the division champions play the last week for the title. Especially this year with a much shorter schedule it could enhance the regular season. Take a 10 man league with two divisions. Seems like the regular season will be 9 weeks this year. So each team plays their divisional opponent twice and the division champs face off the last week. Yes I realize you don't play half your league, but this emphasizes the importance of winning your division. A good commissioner will put teams in divisions to promote competition…

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Player’s positions are determined based on info from the MLB roster and past performance.

    Mountcastle will have to make 5 starts or 10 total appearances in a position to earn that eligibility in our game.

    Thanks,

  8. Pablo López let in 3 runs on 8/24 but has an ERA of 0!

    Pablo López pitched 5.0 innings on 8/24. He gave up 3 runs in the bottom of the fifth via 2 Sac flys and a single. How does he have an ERA of ZERO? There was only 1 error by Miami at that point, it was not during the 5th.

    Should his WHIP also be higher?

    His line is

    BUT, this was the scoring for the bottom of the fifth!

    Hi Roman,

    Thank you for leaving your feedback.

    Holds are not an official MLB statistical category: You may find that different statistical services use a different criteria, which is why holds reflected in box scores may not appear in your team scoring.

    To see additional criteria for holds, please go to https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN6910.html.

    Part of the criteria for a hold is a pitcher must enter the game in a save situation. A save situation in our game is not considered if the pitcher enters the game prior to the 6th inning. Strahm entered the game in the 5th, prior to the 6th, so this was not a save situation and would not meet the criteria for a hold.

    Thanks,

  11. Can't when any games and being treated unfairly because of the virus.

    The cap on moves should be lifted if a team who has a certain amount of players PPD because of virus restriction. I can't even compete with the person I'm playing against cause 5 of my hitters and a few pitcher are idle since Thursday because of this virus. It's not fair I was destroying my opponent and now I have to watch my team get slow rolled into death with only 3 guys that took At Bats today? I think Yahoo dropped the ball here and I won't use this services every again.

    Hello John,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Our product team is reviewing all options for baseball including allowing leagues that wish to skip the 2020 shortened season to be able to renew in 2021 with 2019 rosters but no decisions have been made.

    Currently, in order to renew next year, you would need to have a draft in the league with rosters. So you could apply all rosters in an offline draft and remove the option for playoffs in the league. Then you’d have all managers bench their players for the entire season and then those rosters would be present when the league renews in 2021.

    If you do not renew and we are unable to allow leagues to renew with rosters from 2019, managers would have to view their rosters from the 2019 league through their Fantasy Profile and let the commissioner know who they want to keep so those…

  16. Suspend until 2021

    Would like the option for commissioners to suspend keeper leagues until 2021, allowing for 2019 traded draft picks and rosters to carry over to 2021. Our league hasn't drafted yet and we'd like to go into 2021 with everything set how it was for 2020.

    Hi Brent,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    You can see criteria for a hold for Yahoo Fantasy at https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN6910.html.

    One of the criteria include the pitcher coming into a hold situation. A hold situation is not considered if the pitcher comes into the game before the 6th inning of a game. Clippard came into the game on the 17th in the 5th inning and therefore would not meet the criteria for a hold in fantasy scoring.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    A player’s designation is determined by our data provider and is updated in our game once it is updated on their end.

    Yamamoto’s designation has been updated to NA in our game.

  19. Stats need correcting for Dakota Hudson for Sun. 8/16/20

    Dakota Hudson was coded with a Loss on 8/16/20. He actually had a NO Decision. This actually had a direct effect on a tie in our league. Instead of a 7-7 Tie, the competition should have been 8-7.
    Please review the actual Box Score and make appropriate adjustments in Dakota Hudson's stats as well as how it affected Won-Loss competitions in Head to Head Leagues.

    When a game is suspended, the stats for the affected players are retroactively applied once play resumes by using stat corrections. Since stat corrections are only processed on Mondays there may be a posting delay.

    Exception – In Head-to-head leagues corrections will only be processed if they apply to the most recently completed matchup.
