Yahoo Scare (Busted Stats)

Postby jayman » Sat Apr 17, 2004 5:40 pm

So, my teams in last thanks to the awesome start of sexson, tejada, arod, and b. giles. But, it's early, and all of you are helping to not panic (i'm losing my mind).

Anyway, I get home and trun on yahoo and see that Wood has picthed 5 innings, no runs, 4 k's or something. Then I see the game is over (Cubs lose 3-2). I totatally freaked <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> ! Then my DSL craps out. So, I have no idea what happened to him that he had to leave in the fifth!

Turns, out Yahoo stats are stuck (again, what's new? :-t ).

This is going to be a long season. :~(

i don't know what yahoo does but they are extremele good at having things get 'stuck' and 'broken' You get what you pay for if you are in a free league... and if you are in a pay yahoo league you're getting screwed.

Yahoo's free. Don't complain.

Sorry though, wood couldn't keep it together in the 9th. Oh well, we didn't deserve to win yesterday.

Actually, stat tracker is not free.
I'm not complaining though, I just thought I was funny how I freaked over nothing.

I think it's funny that you freaked at all.

Plenty of other sites to get live scores and stats from...
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Yeah, but I paid for Stattracker. If they're going to charge me, they'd better have the bugs worked out after the first month. I'm not freaking out right now, because #1 it's only 10 bucks, and #2 it always takes time to tweak additions to software.

After about a month though, sometime in the first week of May, I'll send them a few emails about it if it continues to freeze, not update, contain the "PPD" glitch, etc.
