looking for a new keeper site.

Postby cheferic » Fri Nov 29, 2002 10:44 pm

we have an established keeper league that has been around for 4 years. we started on rotonews until they went under. we then switched to cbssportsline. now i like sportsline but come on they are said to be charging 139 bucks for next year! i find this out of line. does anyone know of a reputable service that they have used for under 100 bucks? some things we need are salary and head to head ability. some others ive heard of but know nothing of are
tqstats
sandbox
owners box

thanks for the help!

The trouble might not be finding a reputable service, but one whose keeper rules match those of your specific league... Sandbox, for instance, used to limit teams to four keepers per season (although I don't know what they're planning for next year), which may be less than what you've been using. Personally, I find it easier (and more flexible) to use single-season services when playing in keeper leagues, and to keep track of salaries, contract status and so on by hand.

Dan and cwebb do use keeper services, though - maybe one of those guys can recommend something solid...

sorry, but I also cant really help you. what you want is a really flexible system, and I think the best I know for baseball is sportsline, and its a pity they again raised their prices. biggest problem to find a suitable site for sure is the salary system.
I think you should give Arlos idea a chance of keeping track of the salaries yourself, and use single year formats then.

but if I hear of something, I will let you know!
