  1. 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).

  2. 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.

  4. In head to head points league its nice to be able to limit starts at 10. So anything over ten stats stop counting. Its a feature espn has.

    In points head to head league, pichers can help get you a lot of points. It would be great to limit the starts to what you wanted. We are able to limit pick ups, but a team could load up on starters and we want to keep it at ten. Its a feature allowed on other platforms.

  5. Please create a "starting pitcher wins" category

    Creating a category just for "starting pitcher wins" would eliminate RPs from racking up 'cheap' wins

  8. Re-tool stat categories

    Especially in the pitching department. Batting average against, slugging against, ground ball %, HR/9, etc. These are very basic stat categories that are currently not available.

  9. “Maximum IP”

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Retro-active Line-up Changes

    Fantasy Baseball should, JUST LIKE other sports, allow the retroactive ability to change line-ups. The semi-final championship game of my baseball league had myself with Mookie Betts on the bench because the night before he was rested and didn't start/play. One of 3 outfielders in the line-up did not play that day and I tried several times to make the switch that day before the game. It wasn't allowed. I contacted Yahoo several times but to no avail. Due to THAT line-up change, I lost that game. The RBI's alone accrued by Betts would have put my team to win…

  14. 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.

  15. ROTO leagues have Maximum innings, why can't we get Minimum innings also?

    Allow commissioners the ability to set minimum inning limitations similar to setting maximum innings.
    Leagues that don't use limits or don't want them, just turn them off.

  17. Increased Minimum Innings Pitched from 7 to 20; Require x amount of SP starts; cap closers per team

    I'm still new to H2H, and right off the bat I realized that by allowing an automatic draft to progress without making specific picks was a mistake. This specific game is all about who gets the most and best closers, maybe setup men as well. The game puts little emphasis on starting pitching unless we are talking about rock stars, because further, it's all about accuracy - ERA and WHIP. If you're going to put a SP out there, he better be accurate or he'll skew your weekly figures and you are hosed. Sure you can take K's any given…

  18. Combine Roto and H2H

    I would like to see the option to have H2H playoffs in a roto league. I would like the option to choose the playoff format for my league. The goal would be to use roto scoring to determine the top 4-6 teams as a regular season and then play head to head for the final weeks of the season for the playoffs.

  19. 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.

  20. Innings Pitched

    If a person has 7 innings pitched left in Rotisserie, they should not be allowed to start 7 players and get credit for them all.
