  1. PLAYOFF DATES AND OPTIONS

    It would be great to have numerous options for playoffs, Including moving up the playoffs earlier and extending them extra weeks as desired just as others have stated
    AND
    How about an option for multiple week total points where all of the teams involved in the Playoffs compete against each other for two or three weeks and whoever has the most points at the end is the champion. Basically a 2-4 week roto for the championship.

  3. Change default scoring settings from saves to save plus holds

    Fewer baseball managers use one relief pitcher to close out games. More often, the best reliever is being used in the highest leverage situation,whether it is the 9th inning or not. Some relievers are the best on their team but are not used to close out games because real life teams want to utilize those relievers when it matters the most.

  4. 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…

  5. Trade veto system needs to be changed.

    Either make it less convenient to veto, or make it require half the league to veto instead of 1/4. Or both.

    It's too easy to just click to veto without really thinking about it or investigating it. Vetos ruin leagues.

  6. Combining the same day and next day transactions into one to make it better for all

    The issue with same day transcations is that once a player has played you cannot add/drop them. I understand the reasoning (do not want players dropping an early game player and adding a late game player to get more stats for that one position). The problem is now everyone is unable to add a player to their team until the next morning, while someone who has a player that has not played may drop/add even though they may do this hours after someone else already attempted to add that player. This is wear the combining comes into play. Keep the…

  7. Moving Playoffs up

    The way it is set up now for a playoff bracket with 6 teams is that it goes into the 3 or 4th week of september. By this time a lot of MLB teams will rest players or sit them because they either are preparing for the playoffs or are looking at younger talent. This really hurts our league because we have a lot of big players that didnt play everyday the final couple weeks so really hurt our teams.

    Can you create the league so that you can have your playoffs be played before labor day...make labor day weekend…

  9. All minor league players should be available to be drafted or added, not just the ones Yahoo deems worthy.

    Below is my rant to Yahoo help after being told that a player is not and will not be available until they are called up to the majors:

    That is a really terrible procedure and arbitrary rule set. There is obviously no reason that he can't be added. I am quite certain that it is within Yahoo's capabilities to make any player available that they want.

    By making a player unavailable until they are called up means that the person who is able to benefit from the player's services is only the person who hears the news that he has…

  10. Please get it together and treat Ohtani as one player or we're moving our entire league over to ESPN.

    Two Ohtani's makes absolutely zero sense and is just plain lazy on your part.

  11. Lock players

    I made the playoffs, but unfortunately the chances of me winning are now slim because a player who didn't make the playoffs dropped all of his quality players. Since I was low on the waiver wire, I knew I was in trouble. If you simply lock teams who don't make the playoffs this wouldn't have happened. I more than likely won't be playing anymore yahoo leagues because if this situation. It is unfair and possibly took $250 away from me.....

  12. Multiple matchups for H2H points leagues

    With multiple matchups per week in a H2H points league it allows the 2nd highest scoring team in a week not to lose just to the highest scoring team if that is who they are playing. I have found on other sites that this ensures at the end of the season the best teams are in the playoffs and not just someone getting lucky.

  14. 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!

  15. You should have to have a full roster. Every position filled.

    You should have to post a full team. By lets say not carrying a catcher but carrying an extra OF you limit my player pool in the OF position. The skill should be to use the best "team" not the best pool of players.

  16. 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…

  17. limit starting pitch

    In the pro leagues limit how many starts a manager can have at the starting pitcher position to seven, just like the rest of the position players and real baseball. This would stop the "streaming" problem.

  19. Add Myles Straw to the player pool aka forced player list.

    This guy was just called up to Houston's AAA squad. He's hitting .336 with a .417 obp and 39 steals so far this season in only 69 games.

    This is a guy with 80 steal potential that is showing he's capable of getting on base at a good rate.

    I'm interested in stashing him or at the very least being able to add him as soon as he's called up instead of having to watch him sit on waivers for 3 days so other league members can put in add requests.

  20. 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!
