Best Pay Site?

Postby Ron Santo » Fri Nov 16, 2007 12:02 am

Hello all,
I am looking for a good pay site for the 2008 season. My Fantasy Football league moved to http://www.myfantasyleague.com this year, and the natives are itching for a baseball upgrade next. Can someone recommend a good site with plenty of customizable features, such as custom logo uploads and scoring options?

Thanks

Last time I played at CBS Sportsline, they allowed custom logos and had some other nice features. I really enjoyed playing there and I would say they have a superior product to Yahoo! Plus. Some of my league mates did not like it though and we ended up switching back to Yahoo!.

I prefer CBS in a choice

I have heard some decent things about Rotowire's service. It is fairly cheap (around $70 I believe). I have not used it personally, but will be for '08 leagues. Switching from Yahoo.

Don't know about Rotowire's baseball provider, but I used it last season for football and it was awful. It had some neat features such as an automated Free Agent Auction Bidding each week for waivers, but the interface was the worst of the four that I've ever tried (Sportsline, ESPN, Yahoo, and Rotowire). I'd have to see something pretty impressive out of them to use them again.

I've run a handful of leagues on Sportsline the past few years and won't run a baseball league anywhere else (of the ones that I've tried).

Primary reasons for liking CBS:
(1) Player pool is basically everyone in the majors and minors who you ever would want to draft or take for the future;
(2) Relatedly, all their major league and minor league stats are there for you to check out;
(3) Friendly interface for league (lets you post polls and stories/articles with uploaded pictures as well as upload your team logo's):
(4) and most importantly for baseball, lets you use and combine basically every statistic that is tracked. For football, I don't care so much since football scoring is so vanilla. But I find the standard 5x5 stats for baseball to be bad in measuring player values and anything that Sportsline tracks (which is basically everything) you can use and combine in any formula you can come up with. In one of my leagues, I have the calculation for Runs Created per game as a trackable stat... didn't end up using it for scoring, but it's possible to do.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Just throwing another one out there. I have heard decent things about Custom Stats as well. Customer service with them is supposed to be very good.
