  1. Yahoo waiver glitch

    Our league has a 3 move maximum per week. By Sunday all of us were out of moves. However, the waivers execute on Monday morning at 3 am (a new week). Some folks in our league were able to put in claims on Sunday for the Monday night pickup. But others got the message that they were out of moves for the week. Please fix this ASAP. It is creating issues in our league. It is an obvious glitch.

  2. Double the max waiver moves the first "week" of the season.

    First week of fantasy baseball is played over 2 weeks. Yet the max waiver moves stays at 6. Should be at least 10.

  3. Reset adds/pickups for "Extended Opening Week"

    For Baseball's Opening Week - which runs for more than 7 days in Yahoo! - allow the league adds/pickups, to reset on the Monday of the extended week in H2H leagues.

  4. Reset player acquistion counter based on week/matchup player will be available

    For daily transaction leagues: If I reach the matchup acquisition limit and attempt to pick up a player on Sunday who will not be available for my lineup until Monday, I should be able to complete that acquisition. That player add should count against the next week/matchup's limit as the player will not be able to be used in my lineup until the following day.

  5. Streamline waiver claim priority: Tiles/Drag&Drop please! Dropdown rank menu is TERRIBLE!

    This suggestion will only make the user experience better there is no downside. The drop down ranking menu to prioritize waiver claims is terrible! Please make each waiver claim a drag & drop tile like you do with editing lineups on the team page, i.e. I should be able to prioritize my waiver claim by dragging and dropping each claim into the order I wish the claim to be processed. Yahoo!'s current dropdown rank for each claim is hard to keep track of when doing multiple claims at once. After around 5 claims it's easy to lose track of the…

  7. Inconsistent Waiver Procedure

    Today is Monday 5/14 at 2:15 AM and I just tried to place a waiver claim for the standard 3 AM claim cycle. 3 AM has consistently been the cutoff to place claims except for today, the cycle kicked in sometime around 2 am...aka claims placed after 2 am now will take place on Tuesday 5/15. This is not only unfair to the night owls, but also those in the pacific and mountain time zones who are used to the 3 am cutoff.

    While tolerable, it's disappointing that claims process at different times of the night unlike other servers. The…

  8. A standard waiver for hitters, continuous FAAB waivers for pitchers option

    Would allow you to fill your lineup on day of games, while also preventing the "vulture pickup" problem that affects mainly closers.

    The main problem with continuous waivers is not being able to fill your lineup on day of games when games are postponed and guys aren't starting, of course. The primary annoyance with standard is vultures picking up setup men for injured/removed closers. This would solve both of those...

    Seems to give you best of both worlds and I wouldn't think that hard to implement...

  9. Allow Waiver settings to be similar to fantasy football.

    It would be helpful, especially in weekly lineup leagues, to have waivers be able to be set similarly to Fantasy Football. The idea would be the commissioner could select which day waivers run and which day all players go on waivers. All players are free agents the other days. ie. Waivers start at first game on Monday and process on Thursday, now any player who was not added via waivers is a free agent available for pick up on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

  10. Allow manager to put in waiver claim on a player, even though they were the one who dropped them.

    Sometimes when I drop someone and then during the days he's on waivers, something changes and I may be interested in having the player again. But for some reason, when you drop someone, you're not allowed to make a waiver claim for them, using the standard waiver system. You can make waiver claims in the FAAB system on your own dropped players. So why not in standard waivers, too?

  11. Add Continuous Waiver Mode into Pro Leagues

    Yahoo Pro Leagues are the best product available in Fantasy Baseball with one exception. Managers who get to news first are able to dominate the free agent pool. It is a strategy of some managers to completely ignore closers during their draft/auction, because they know they have the availability to get to all news first and dominate the free agent pool. Those of us with jobs and/or lives are not able to feasibly do this. Keep in mind that getting to the waiver wire first is not a function of being smarter or better. It's just a matter of availability.…

  12. Adjustable waiver processing times for "Continuous Waiver Mode"

    When using continuous waivers, the waiver time needs to be adjustable for each individual league (ESPN has had this feature for a while). The reason my league switched to continuous waivers was so that when breaking news occurred (callup to majors, injury, new closer, etc.) the person with the highest waiver priority would have first chance at acquiring the player, rather then the person who saw the news first. We live on the east coast so when news breaks late at night, with waivers processing at 11:59PM PST, the person in our league who's up the latest will almost certainly…

  14. Yahoo should have consistent bar/ standard for prospects available at min

    Not a vicious complaint at all but there are obvious inconsistencies in which players are available from year to year. Why not set a new standard?

    A great one would be players from the first two rounds of the MLB draft, the top 30 international signings and then whomever is left from the more or less industry consensus of a top 100 prospect list. Roughly estimated 150-200 specific players.

    Sure it would not include every prospect out there but it would greatly improve the current system and be easier for yahoo to manage.

    Even better it would set a specific…

  15. Connect Waiver Claims as X or Y or Z when not dropping a player...

    Easier to explain with a scenario....
    I have three open roster spots, and we have waivers once a week. I'd like to pick up a MI/CI, an OF, and a SP. I need to make sure I get at least one player at each position, so i need to list multiple, but since the pickups aren't dropping a player, all 6-7 players I have in mind are all equal in the waiver system.

    I'd like to make the claims like this with the first player in the list being the highest priority.
    1. Eduardo Escobar or Jose Peraza
    2. Tyson…

  17. Have reverse order of standings available for FAAB waivers

    I play in a FAAB waiver league where pickups are only allowed once a week. If there is a tie in the silent bidding, the winning bid should go to who is lower in the standings. This is not currently an option and I can't understand why.

  18. Maximum Adds Per Week

    Just like in Yahoo Fantasy Basketball, there should be a maximum adds per week feature. I see a maximum acquisitions per season feature, but that is not what I'm referring to.

    Our league is weekly -- as many are, I'm sure -- and we process adds only on Sat/Sun every week. We want a feature to limit the number of adds you can do each week (say, no more than 3-4 adds each week).

    This should be easy to add given it's already in place for basketball leagues!!!

    Hey Aaron, thanks for your feedback. This feature is already available in head-to-head leagues. There are no plans to add this to Roto leagues. Good luck this season!

  20. For leagues that use FAAB instead of the traditional waiver wire pickup,

    For leagues that use FAAB to pick up players, there is not an option for a minimum bid and it still allows for players to be picked up without using tyour FAAB money which defetas the purpose of that setting.

    My suggestion is for leagues that have that setting is for the only way to pick up a player is to use atleast $1 of your FAAB money.

    When you pick up a player either via FAAB or a FA Pickup it still takes a day for the move to happen even after you find out you pick up that…
