  1. Allow player swap once a game is PPD

    Once a game is PPD, if there are bench players available that can be swapped due to start times being later, this should absolutely be implemented. Feels like a large miss and something that could be easily changed.

  2. S. Ohtani

    Since S. Ohtani is split into 2 different players, the batter and the pitcher, Ohtani the pitcher should still have DL eligibility! It is known he will not pitch for several more weeks and not being able to keep Ohtani (the pitcher) in the DL spot on rosters is not fair to owners. Anyone who owns him is forced to either drop him or have him take up a roster spot when he is not going to pitch. Please do the right thing and make this correction.

  3. Expanded Commish Ohtani/Future 2-Way Player Options

    So we realize you guys decided to make Ohtani 2 separate players. Many people are obviously upset about this (myself included). I understand that either choice will ruffle some feathers, so why not make a commissioner option to treat Ohtani as 1 or 2 players?

    Commissioner Option 1: Treat him as 2 separate players, both take up a roster spot, etc. the way you guys said it would be this year.

    Commissioner Option 2: Have him in the system as 2 players but he would act as 1 player. For example, under this option, pitcher Ohtani and hitter Ohtani only…

  5. 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. 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.

  7. YAHOO...PLEASE bring back the career hitting stats vs. starting pitcher tool

    I found this comment from yahoo last year when this subject was brought up. ...this is what they wrote.

    We have added a column with the Opposing Pitcher in the My Team (Roster > Opponents) tab to provide insight into the matchup. Adding stats for a particular match-up is a tougher task, but we hope to add at some point this season.

    Career batter vs pitcher stats have been added to players pages.

    Thanks for your feedback and patience.

    My comment is why take it down again? It was obviously a hot topic that many many wanted.…

  8. Off season trading.

    Speaking on behalf of both of my leagues, I think off season trading should be allowed. You should be allowed to trade draft picks and players. Not only does it keep people motivated but keeps baseball alive all year long. I don't see no reason why this shouldn't be allowed effective immediately.

  10. 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.

  12. No Trade List - Personally Set

    It would be nice if you could set up a list whereas the team owner can choose players that they do not wish to trade... therefore sending an automated rejection to the person offering a trade.

    This would be a nice feature and easy to administer.

  13. Batter vs pitcher stats on the team pages

    Why do we still have to go to each individual player page to view this information? So time consuming, and very hard to compare across your team! I've been asking since 2013 for this to be aggregated on the team pages on a new tab. Replace the match up ratings for all I care, those are completely worthless anyway!

  14. 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.

  15. Create a Commissioner's Protected or Exempt List

    We do farm club drafts each year in my 3-sport dynasty league -- baseball, football, and basketball and hold those players' rights for up to 3 years. If there could be a commissioner-controlled list of "protected" players we could put those guys on it would be very helpful. It would eliminate the failure to check the list and accidentally pick up someone else's farm clubber. Commish would just have to release the player/add him to a roster when someone wants to activate them. Also - for issues like the 45 newly drafted players (Mize, Bart, etc) that were posted, they…

  16. 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…

  18. Need to add maximum IP or limit starts per week in H2H points leagues

    Need allow commish to add a MAXIMUM innings pitched or set number of starts per week.

    It's too easy to win when you can stream starting pitchers in a points league (we do have a 5 transaction limit, but still need an innings max).

  19. Add More NA spots

    NA spots are currently capped at 10. I'd like to see the maximum raised to 15 or 20 to allow keeper/dynasty leagues to have more in-depth minor league possibilities. Yahoo has done a good job of expanding the player pool, but when you can only roster 10 NA, it caps these newly added players usage.

  20. Allow players to be benched or inserted during double header

    Nothing infuriates me more than when a player has a double header and I lose a FULL DAY of production at the plate from a PINCH HITTING appearance. It's 2018, Yahoo. We've put up with this nonsense for too long. Fix it so I can either bench the player if he's not in the starting lineup after the 1st game or insert them for the 2nd game if they didn't play the first.
