My baseball fantasy: espn.com getting its f-ing act together

    I'm in an espn.com fantasy-baseball league with a bunch of other SportsJournalists.comers and I'm sure some of you are in other leagues. Well, the first to weeks have been such a mess with transactions and waiver claims not going through, that here is what espn.com says it's going to do tonight:

    So any trades have to be made again. Any pickups have to be made again. Argh.

    For what it's worth, Dan Patrick is teasing to the "Big Show" hour (2 p.m. ET) when Keith Olbermann will apparently rant about this subject.

    The only thing good about this (other than hopefully they got their act together is):

    Fantasy baseball is free and it SUUCCKS!
    Memo to ESPN: More money on tech support, less on Geddy Lee cameos and flowing white wigs for Peter Gammons.

    All the more reason to use Yahoo! for baseball.

    You've got to be kidding me. That's the worst possible solution. Why not just make everyone draft again? It makes just as much sense.

    I called and requested that they NOT do this in our league and was told that this is going to be done in all leagues.

    This has to be the biggest fantasy league clusterfuck of all-time.

    Fortunately, my commish signed us up for yahoo about three days into the season. We've been using both sites while ESPN tried to get its shit together. ESPN's "solution" is unacceptable.

    Two of my nerdier friends had a conference call with an ESPN.com fantasy higher-up last week to vent. Yes, they have jobs and in one case, a wife.

    I am going to assume that everyone is our league is an honest person since they are all SJers but I pity the poor people stuck in leagues with assholes who are going to go back on previous trades because they didn't work out or grab free agents they aren't entitled too. What a major fuck up. Nice job ESPN.

    I didn't make any trades, but I hope that everyone who did make trades resubmits them.

    Not as bad the The Great FoxSports.net Fantasy Football Fiasco of 2005. Ah, I remember it well ...

    this is incredible. i hope everyone who is using ESPN switches to yahoo or sportsline next year.

    my league has an annual debate about whether to use yahoo or sportsline. yahoo won this year. apparently anything's better than espn.
