      • Box score should be the priority

        The new way to display active MLB games is less than ideal. The default should be the box score. I liked it better when the play by play was just another column to the right of the box score. I definitely do not need to see the tweets of writers during the game. Those tweets tend to be "I better say something", but that something is not very interesting or informative.

        • Allow users to turn off autoplay for video

          Please allow users to have the option of turning off autoplay of videos. If a video makes my browser hang up because it is trying to load, I will, 100% of the time, click away and won't come back to that page. I've tried ad blockers but you have been working around that haven't you Yahoo?

          • Liked having all of the scores for the day across the top. That is why I would go to the page

            Put the scores for all games of the day across the top. I don't go to the page to read about trivia, I want to see the scores, quickly and easily with no scroll. As everyone else has said below, it wasn't broken so WHY do you waste time and money changing it?

            • The MLB schedule doesn't allow you to see starting pitchers daily.

              Many fantasy baseball users would select sports, MLB, and schedules which showed team matchups and also the starting pitchers, now the pitchers are not shown for each game, so you have to go MLB.com to get that info. Can you add the pitching matchups into the game details? THANKS!

                Hi all,

                Thanks for pointing this out. We are working on getting starting pitcher info back to the Scores/Schedule page. I’ll update this post when its available.

                We appreciate the feedback, keep it coming!

                Go back to the old page. Sometimes simpler is better, nobody wants to go through half a dozen steps to get to the articles or scores they are looking for.

                • Get rid of the sponsored posts!

                  I know you've got to make a buck, but get rid of the sponsored posts, please! You're insulting the intelligence of your readers and doing a disservice to your writers when you mix that clickbait glurge in with your actual content. Right now you've got "Where Did Joe Pesci Go? You Won't Believe It!" above a fantasy story, an NFL video, and Jeff Passan's story on Eric Hosmer's ASG performance. And of course it's formatted so that all the "stories" appear the same, save for the "Sponsored Post" tag. It makes me MUCH less likely to keep coming back to…

                  • Too many photos and videos clogging up the screen...not enough headlines on the main screen.

                    I'd like to see more links to headlines on the main page...and less photos clogging up the screen. It's fine to have one photo and/or to have a photo AFTER we click a headline, but one assumes that the people who come to this page can actually read and not just look at pictures.

                        • Conversations - Problems

                          Your "new" Conversations (replacement for Comments) section is loaded with problems . . . I guess to go along with your horrible new sports formats (it all used to be on one page . . . now it's all over the place) which are drawing much criticism.

                          Biggest single complaint from users is that their posts (Comments) disappear mysteriously.

                          Also, personally, I can only get the Conversations section to work on one browser (Internet Explorer) and it will not work (well or at all) on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. FYI, I am using Windows 7.

                                There is a list of Sports across the top of the page (Sports Home, Fantasy, NFL, etc..) and at the end are three dots that provide access to additional Sports. Please respond to this message if this does not solve the issue.

                                    It's obvious from all the feedback that users are dissatisfied with the changes. Many share the same concerns (i.e. click to read more, automatic video playback, need to search/scroll for scores and box scores, mixing irrelevant sponsored content with sports content (on the sports page).
                                    Will the feedback actually be listened to and acted upon? If so, when can we expect the "new and improved" yahoo sports based on users feedback? Thanks!

                                    • Sports news page plays unrelated video/audio that can't be turned off

                                      Opened this page from Yahoo Sports and a video with audio of an interview with someone related to the British Open (golf) immediately started playing, without anywhere to turn it off. Not only is auto audio rude, but this looks like a bug.
