New draft tool - now with even more stats

Hey Man - sweet tool. A few suggestions:

- When you remove a player from one of the manager rosters, need an update button available there without having to scroll back to the top.

- Missing Util/DH on your player filters, so you have to do "all hitters" to get guys only DH eligible (see Hafner).

- I didn't see anything that explained what "Set A" and "Set B" are for projections.

- I love the team totals table... that was cool.

- I thought I saw somewhere where you said that you'd be able to customize teams and positions "soon" - what about projections?

- One longer term objective might be to have something that follows the flow of a draft, where instead of going to a player and saying what team he's on, you have an updating "draft board" where you fill picks in order of the draft... you'd make the 1st pick spot active, then select a player to fill that spot, fill it in, and add it to that manager's team. Just a different view.

- General comment is that there seems to be a lot of data all on one page... maybe investigate ways to leverage tabbed pages or frames or something like that to present the data in a more streamlined manner. Obviously you're updating and enhancing all the time, so it'll get there I'm sure.

Good luck with this - its pretty cool. I'll definitely use it on draft night!

Down where all the rosters for the other teams are, there is a "go to top of page" link.

Set A and Set B are projections published by "well known" services, but I didn't want to label them since that might get me in trouble.

You can customize teams and positions - you should be entering from http://www.grumpytom.com/fantasybaseball

As for customizing projections, I haven't figured out a clean and safe way to do it yet.

I totally agree with the amount of data on one page - I'll look into ways of making it a little more manageable.

And lastly, I'll fix the DH/Util spot tonight.

Thanks for the great feedback!

Ah, I thought this meant customizing the team/position of player, not of the league. So doing something of this sort would fall into the category of customizing projections.

Nice job again!

BTW, you can now filter based on Util spots...

I haven't had a chance to look at the software yet but is it possible to use this software with a points league?

Thanks

Right now, it doesn't have a way for you to enter the points/category for a points league. Besides that, what would you need?

this is sssssssschhhhweeeet,,,,,

any chance of tracking money for a salary cap league? generally $260? Possibly to tell you how much every team has left etc;?

even if not this is very useful!

RE: Money tracking

Postby MmmmBeer » Sun Mar 05, 2006 5:57 am

I'd love to get the money tracking feature in, just don't know how long it will take. I've never participated in an auction - what else (besides how much money is left) would be useful?
