  2. Keeper Leagues: Allow players starting the season in the minors to be kept without counting as a bench spot.

    Currently, my league has 28 roster spots + 2 NA spots. If we want to stash a prospect, we have to keep them on the 28 man roster through the draft, then move them into NA. This robs us of those last 2 bench spots in the draft. Please fix!!

  3. Historical data; Historical graphs; Customizable Rankings; Advanced Statistics

    I would like see graphs of player ranks (and other statistics) plotted over time. For example, What was Player A's season (Total) rank on 9/11, 9/28, 9/25, and how does this graph look? Incorporate some ideas from stock graphs!

    Also, customizable ranking would be nice incorporating statistics not measured directly in the game: baseball OBPS, hard contact %, etc.

    Finally, making statistics searchable by dates would be nice!

    Keep up the good work! You guys are awesome!

  5. New league idea

    New league:
    Pick a team for 10 games..you get record for those 10..then you move on..you accumulate the records..

    Yankees go 2-8 then Red Sox go 8-2, then you are 10-10

  6. PLAYOFF DATES AND OPTIONS

    It would be great to have numerous options for playoffs, Including moving up the playoffs earlier and extending them extra weeks as desired just as others have stated
    AND
    How about an option for multiple week total points where all of the teams involved in the Playoffs compete against each other for two or three weeks and whoever has the most points at the end is the champion. Basically a 2-4 week roto for the championship.

  8. 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…

  9. Keep any Yahoo Leagues designated as Dynasty to remain open thoughout the off-season

    The Hot Stove Lounge is one the best parts of MLB.
    Also allow roster sizes to be edited after a draft, this enables us to protect NA players in the draft as well as our regular keepers, as soon as they get NA designation after Spring Training, we can reduce our bench slots back to 4

  10. 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…

  12. Changing the League page Theme would be nice. Yahoo has the same BORING,DULL theme for year. I suggest to add multi colors and pictures.

    Yahoo needs to get more creative and step up their game when it comes to their Fantasy Baseball League page(s). Its the same boring look, every year...(White screen everywhere). Yahoo Mail has theme options, why can't we have the same? It would be great if we could be able to customize our own page with colors, pictures OR favorite team theme.
    (CBSsports has some of these options).
    2019 is coming and you guys look like you are stuck in the 90's !!!!
    LETS GET COLORFUL!

  13. Please get it together and treat Ohtani as one player or we're moving our entire league over to ESPN.

    Two Ohtani's makes absolutely zero sense and is just plain lazy on your part.

  14. “Yesterday” Filter option

    In the Filtering of the players available it would be helpful if “yesterday” was an option. Transaction trends is helpful but if you could filter to show the stats of everyone from the day before it would be much easier.

  15. During Baseball off-season, Yahoo need to FIX these problems!

    1. Not all initial posts and/or replies "stick." Once a comment does not post (Yahoo glitch), it is impossible to re-post it. Very frustrating and discouraging to all Yahoo participants.

    2. First replies to an initial post do not "show" until page is refreshed and/or a thumb is clicked on. Also, when replies are opened (on an initial post), if a thumb is then clicked, the replies close. Probably not correct and should be fixed.

    3. Reply threads are "upside down." You have to read them from the bottom up to follow the continuity in chronological order.

    4. Duplicate "nicknames"…

  16. 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…

  17. limit starting pitch

    In the pro leagues limit how many starts a manager can have at the starting pitcher position to seven, just like the rest of the position players and real baseball. This would stop the "streaming" problem.

  18. Less weeks

    Can there plz be an option to end season 2-3 weeks earlier so wk 1 football is baseball championship?
    Like no one cares who wins ever by the time it comes around. Just cuz mlb has a way too long for this generation season, doesnt mean fantasy players should have to suffer thru it too.
    Every year the oxygen is sucked out of the playoffs/championship by it being way too late, after a great competetive season.

  19. All minor league players should be available to be drafted or added, not just the ones Yahoo deems worthy.

    Below is my rant to Yahoo help after being told that a player is not and will not be available until they are called up to the majors:

    That is a really terrible procedure and arbitrary rule set. There is obviously no reason that he can't be added. I am quite certain that it is within Yahoo's capabilities to make any player available that they want.

    By making a player unavailable until they are called up means that the person who is able to benefit from the player's services is only the person who hears the news that he has…

  20. Add Myles Straw to the player pool aka forced player list.

    This guy was just called up to Houston's AAA squad. He's hitting .336 with a .417 obp and 39 steals so far this season in only 69 games.

    This is a guy with 80 steal potential that is showing he's capable of getting on base at a good rate.

    I'm interested in stashing him or at the very least being able to add him as soon as he's called up instead of having to watch him sit on waivers for 3 days so other league members can put in add requests.
