  1. 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…

  2. Make the custom team pictures bigger! You can barely see them!

    It's almost not worth it to find a creative custom image for your team, BECAUSE YOU CAN BARELY SEE THEM! ESPN's pictures are like 4 times bigger, making it worthwhile to find the perfect picture for your squad.

  3. Change your position eligibility requirements

    Your are currently the only fantasy baseball provider in the universe that has Anthony Rizzo 2B eligible in 2018. THE ONLY ONE. If that is not enough to demonstrate you have an issue, I don't know what does.

    Please change your requirements similar to CBS and ESPN and require 20 "games played" at a respective offensive position. 5 "games started" is fine.

  4. player rankings should reflect custom stats

    I'm fine with Yahoo doing and O-rank and providing the ranks for 5x5 standard leagues, but why is there no option to show the rankings of players using a league's custom stats? I play in a 6x7 league and it would be very valuable information if we knew the exact ranks of players under the umbrella of our own custom stats.

  5. Can you create EDITABLE Commish Notes?

    Would it be possible to make a Commish Note editable?
    For instance, as commish, I keep track of SP adds per week using a Commisn Note on the league homepage each week. At the start of each week, I have to copy/cut my template, delete the completed week's info, and paste the template again (while deleting the previous week's info/adds) before creating the new note.

    Is it possible to allow us users to simply EDIT the commish note where we can just delete/add new info in it instead of going through the tedious process I mentioned earlier?

    Thanks for considering…

  6. 2 Week Playoff Matchups with Adjustable Schedule

    I would love to see Yahoo allow for 2 week playoff matchups and an adjustable schedule that allows you to end regular season whenever you want. These options are currently available on ESPN. After doing our fantasy baseball on Yahoo since 2006, we switched over to ESPN this season because our managers simply prefer 2 week playoff matchups and how it rewards a "true" winner.

    Especially in a sport like baseball that entails so much randomness, a 1 week matchup at any given time is almost a "crapshoot". Also, allowing for an adjustable schedule would also be a great feature…

  8. Change the DL spot to the IL to align with MLB

    Since MLB has officially changed the disabled list to the injured list, will Yahoo be changing the designation to "IL"?

  9. Keeper leagues, be able to view all transactions on one page and allow export to Excel

    even modifying the URL from the number to all
    My league players who were picked up as FA count for a different salary than those drafted, If i could export all the FA pickups then my formula could look at those, then the draft results, to calculate keeper costs. Right now I cannot so it is a manual process.

  10. End fantasy baseball playoffs earlier

    Everyone in my league checks out as soon as football starts. Give the commish the option to end the playoffs some time in August. I'm guessing a lot of fantasy baseball people feel this way.

  11. Anthony Rizzo should NOT be 2B eligible.

    It is absolute failure that Rizzo is 2B eligible. He Never started a game there and while you might see he made 10 appearances at 2B, it was because of a shift in alignment and a scoring technicality. PLEASE change this to 1B only. This is the type of thing the will ruin the entire season of fantasy baseball and it's commonsense really. I love yahoo fantasy sports, but you guys need to do the right thing here.

  12. Two-Way Player Statistics

    Hello - With three players currently in MiLB (Hunter Greene & Brendan McKay) or heading to MLB shortly (Shohei Otani) who both play the field and pitch regularly, does Yahoo have a solution for how these player's statistics will be handled? As far as I can tell, Yahoo has never had a player eligible for both a pitching spot and a position player spot, and hitting stats have never counted for pitchers, nor have pitching stats ever counted for hitters.

    If that remains the case, how will it be determined which "side" of the ball these players will be eligible…

  13. Change the reg season tiebreaker rules or allow private leagues more customization

    The regular season, h2h wild card tiebreakers are horribly arbitrary and have been for years. It affects h2h one win leagues more, since there's higher chance of ties. Who in their right mind would choose week 22 win% as the first tiebreaker for a wild card spot? I'm sorry, but that makes absolutely no sense. And no, for the record, I am not being hurt by that system this year, I'm just finally choosing to post about it, since I just listed the playoff scenarios for my league.

    In nearly every sport on the planet, head to head win %…

  14. There should be an option to make all playoff rounds two weeks long. That way, you get a real test of who the better team is in a long match

    Two week playoff rounds would truly separate the men from the boys. Better managers and well balanced teams would be less likely to lose because of a key injury/rest day or an outburst from one opposing player.

  15. LH/RH splits and PRE/POST All Star Break Splits Filter

    Would you please consider adding a filter under 'stats' on the PLAYERS page for a hitter's stats vs LHP as well as vs RHP? This would help users filter through potential free agents pickups on a day when the player is supposed to face either a LH or RH starter.

    Additionally, in the same area, would you consider adding a pre-all star break split and a post-all star break split in the 'stats' option on the PLAYERS page?

    Thanks so much!

  16. Pre-draft rankings

    Please add a search feature in the pre-draft rankings. Having to scroll thru names either by alphabetical order or rank order is pretty annoying and adding a search feature seems like an easy fix.

  17. 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…

  19. Let traded NA or DL players go straight to open NA or DL slots

    Just as you now can add a player directly to an open NA or DL slot in private leagues, you should alos be able to designate a player being traded to an open NA or DL slot without having to drop players. A simple "the player you are receiving is eligible for NA/DL slot, do you want to put him in your open slot?" yes/no question would do it. This makes the process less cumbersome.

  20. Extend Team Name from 20 to 25 characters

    Hello,

    I am the co-commissioner of Major League Fantasy Baseball. We here at the MLFB, appreciate the flexibility provided to us courtesy of Yahoo! Sports, and have been doing so since our inaugural season of 2009. We hold our league in the highest of standards, emulating the most personal and real-life experience for our owners and managers alike. It has come to our attention, that a team would like to relocate from Washington to Philadelphia, however this transaction cannot be completed, due to the inability to exceed 20 characters for a team name, and the "Philadelphia Phillies" protrudes that limit.…
