Allow DTD injuries to be DL-eligible!
A much needed feature in Yahoo Fantasy Baseball (and all sports, really) is the ability to add players to the DL/IR, whatever you want to call it, when they are nursing injuries of any kind. Out with food poisoning? Day to day with a strained hammy? Make the player DL-eligible. Fantrax has this and it's a great feature. I'm told that Yahoo even has a form of this with IR+ in hockey - but only hockey. Baseball needs it, too. Restricting the DL to just players that are on the DL list in real life is silly. Thanks!

I hear ya....but I disagree. DL (soon to be IL) slots should be reserved only for players on the actual IL. Can Yahoo get better at updating players more quickly from DTD to DL status ohhhh you betcha! But making DTD players eligible for a DL slot is a cop out in my opinion. It makes things too easy.

I like this idea.
THis has to be the DUMBEST request I have ever seen, let their incompetent programming team focus us relevant changes, having them waste time reading this retardation has to be stopped.
Idiot. DL is the DL for a reason.

I can generally deal with DTDs, but game time decisions are always frustrating.
If a DTD doesn't start, then pinch hits with a K, it's a killer.
I note the DTDs and the game time cut off so I can check them later.
The worse scenario is when you have multiple DTDs. In that case, we should have a call up player allowed.
Yahoo is subpar due to their poor IR times. More owners keep moving to Fantrax.
A common example currently is Luis Severino and Clayton Kershaw. Both out for an undetermined amount of time, both with DTD, and both are not eligible to be on the DL (or IL when it is changed.)
