Does the free stattracker tell you if the player is in the lineup an hour before the game starts?


Yes, you click on the small link next to their name and it brings up the Yahoo screen showing the lineup...


Yea but do you have to click on every player on your team to find out?


Yes, you still have to click on some links to make sure the player is in the lineup, but it's still free :*)

It's also easy to access your team\opponent's team on Yahoo through the link at the top.

That's understandable, I'd probably pay the 10 bucks also if I had one account.

With Yahoo! it is very easy - and I should become enshrined in Cafe history for such innovation.

Click on one of the matchups between two active teams this week. The URL should end with something like:

"matchup?week=23&mid1=4&mid2=7"

In the above example, the matchup is compiled for this week, eg the 23rd week (obviously). The mid1 and mid2 signify team 1 and team 2 respectfully. The number 4, and the number 7, represent a certain team in your league. If there are 12 teams, these numbers would be 1 through 12, etc. Your team is represented by one of these numbers as well. In my league, my team is represented as 4. By simply changing the numbers (where mid1 and mid2 = *) in the URL, you can theoretically create a matchup screen between any two teams for any given week and the stats for that week will be generated.

Pure genius.

Also, use 0 as the number of the opposing team to see just your stats alone. It'll just be a blank template for the other team.

Thanks for that, I didn't even think to click my name on the standings section. :-S

That's fantastic. Thanks! ;-D

I like to see how my week is doing against my potential opponents, so this makes those comparisons a piece of cake.

Ya same. I know for sure I won't be looking back on these $10 20 years down the road.

To me the 10 bucks is well worth it. It is perfectly integrated with Yahoo, so there is no work to it at all. Plus, I am a StatTracker addict. Every day I am glued to that thing all night long, tracking every hitter and pitcher for my weekly matchup. I definitely am getting my 10 bucks worth.
