More flexible playoff sytems
- eliminate consolation bracket; once you are eliminated from playoffs, you are locked out just like those teams who miss playoffs and there are no meaningless "consolation" games that no one pays attention to
- two week championship as an option
- shorter regular season due to MLB teams shutting down pitchers, resting players, etc. in september. The championships should be wrapped up by time fantasy football rolls around (week one of the NFL should be championship week for fantasy baseball)

Would like to have more options for playoffs, this year and in the future. I want to only have 2 division winners make playoffs, but do not have that option.

Shorter season option is a must. Why does our fantasy season have to come down to the time where players are shutdown or given more rest?
Plus then we could wrap up baseball before NFL fantasy :)
Allow playoff options to be customized based on division. It's infuriating that Yahoo defaults to 1-6 overall winning percentages instead of intra-divisional playoffs.

Please allow the shorter regular season. Things get stupid the last few weeks, this would be a HUGE benefit to leagues.

I think simplest thing to do is allow Commissioners to set regular season weeks and playoff weeks themselves. No need to have any default limitations. Maybe some suggestions or a "do it yourself" optoin. We instituted a wild card round to include more teams in the playoffs, but that required us to have 10 playoff teams - which is not allowed either. More flexible playoff systems with more customization would be fantastic. Thanks for this suggestions.
Please allow for a shorter regular Season! I would love for Fantasy Baseball Playoffs to be going on right now.

Please add the two-week championship option. This feedback item was added a year and half ago. Is Yahoo even reviewing their users suggestions or just choosing to ignore them?!? These are simple asks that should not be hard to implement and would improve the user experience significantly.
PLEASE ADD TWO WEEK PLAYOFF MATCHUPS!!!!
I just converted my 8 year league to Yahoo from ESPN due to most of your options. I am now going back to my ESPN league because you do not offer two week playoff matchups. How can this not be an option. Pathetic.
PLEASE ADD TWO WEEK PLAYOFF MATCHUPS!!!!

Come on Yahoo, this request was started back in 2013.
Allow teams to start the playoffs as early as week 19 and allow the option for a two week championship.
Robert Franco Martinez commented
I am in a 20 team league.
We have 12 teams make playoffs, with 4 teams getting byes the 1st week.
I have moved to ESPN the last 2 years, because YAHOO does not offer this feature.
However, if YAHOO were to get it, I would move back over here very quickly, because I prefer the YAHOO interface much more.

How many posts and comments does there need to be for Yahoo to make a 2 week playoff option. Is it not blatantly obvious that there is an OVERWHELMING demand for this by the fantasy baseball community? Let's go!
Peter Grella commented
Keep up the momentum!! 2 week playoff rounds need to happen!!
brad reams commented
YES for earlier playoffs & 2 week championship option
Steve Block commented
please add 2 week playoff matchup option, as well as allow commish to edit playoff seeding. would love to have 2 seperate divisions(AL and NL), top 4 from each get in, winner from each playoff bracket meets in a world series.
Eric Harmon commented
Please add 2 week playoff matchups.
Ravi Sohal commented
I agree that in a random sport like baseball which requires larger sample sizes, there should be a way to customize all playoff matchups to 2 weeks.
I also would love to see a way to start the playoffs earlier and have the championship week start in early September rather than go to the end of the season and have a situation where good players are being rested during championship matchups.
