Do you Yahoo? Do you boo when you do?

You’ve probably heard my gripes about Yahoo in the past, both their site in general and the flaws in their fantasy league that we use to track our I-75 players. Now they’ve really irked me with fantasy pages that have become unbearably slow to load. Is this happening for anyone else?

As long as we’re at it, let’s find out if folks are even using the Yahoo fantasy league to track their players’ real-life progress.

With 60 to play, playoff race looks wide open

With 60 games to go, it looks we have have the most wide-open race for playoff spots that we’ve had since the I-75 League expanded to 15 teams.

* DESTIN 52 48 .520
APPLEGATE 51 49 .510 1
BISMARCK 50 50 .500 2
SPRINGFIELD 50 50 .500 2
BUSHWOOD 47 53 .470 5
SUPERIOR 47 53 .470 5

* tie would be broken with a one-game playoff

Currently Destin and Margaritaville are tied for the sixth playoff spot, with Applegate and Bismark — all North Division teams — breathing down their neck. Springfield is just two back as well, oddly closer to first place in its division than it is to a wild-card berth.

“Expansion teams” Iowa and Michigan have a leg up on making their first playoff appearances, and each team strengthened itself with trades for the stretch run.
