I contacted someone in my fantasy last year who works for yahoo fantasy baseball. He told me something about yahoo no acquiring the nesacery lisence from the mlb. They will NOT be offering fantasy baseball this year. He told if they did get it, they would listed when fantasy baseball is available on yahoo months ago.

Plus on the fantasy baseball page it has copyrights with all the various organizations for 2005 on the bottom. Forgive the cafe for doubting your "inside" source.

if they weren't able to have fantasy baseball, wouldn't they have removed fantasy baseball as an option for fantasy sports games?

or atleast notify people of this before hand. i think if they knew they were not going to have it for a while they would have at least had a story or something about it. also when i checked this morning looking at their player position eligibility it has been changed. huff ,to name one player, is only listed at 3b not 1b and 3b which he qualified for before the end of last year.(which annoys me a little since i drafted him as my 1b.) also figgins is not listed as 2b (3B and OF only.which sucks also because now it looks like im going to have to wait a week or so before i have a chance to play him there. oh well least i have infante.) eligible which he qualified for also. both if the guys i own and i checked on thier eligibility before drafting them. so someone foe some reason is updating the database (even if it is incorrect)
