Stattracker on Yahoo

Postby Gang Green » Thu Feb 19, 2004 12:33 am

Last year in the fall, Izzy came on in the 9th inning to close out the Dodgers. It was Sunday night and Izzy was the last guy my opponent for the week had going. I enjoyed an 8-4 overall advantage in our Head to Head competition. I was one save ahead, one strikeout ahead and a hair ahead in ERA and WHIP. As Izzy struck out 2 and got the save, I watched on Stattracker as my 8-4 advantage slowly turned to a 7-4 defeat for the week. Let me tell you, it obviously sucked to lose but the excitement of watching it happen on stattracker as it unfolded totally kicked @@S! Stattracker is absolutely fantasy crack! ;-D

esp if you have 4 teams on one account....The $10 will cover all four teams..... ;-D


Or all 8 teams if you do 4 full season leagues and 4 half season leagues. :-)

Makes it $1.25 per league. Not bad. ;-D

If stat-tracker is indeed $10 this season, then if you have a league of at least ten owners, try talking everyone into getting a premium league. That's what my long-running keeper league did this season.

With ten teams, the $125 works out (obviously) to $12.50 a team. For the extra $2.50 (or $4.50 if stat-tracker costs $8) the entire league gets stat-tracker, as well as the draft kit and premium updates.

For those of you in free leagues, do you guys get the "assistant manager" feature, or no? I guess it will provide you with a suggested starting line-up.

I also know that if you want divisions, head-to-head scoring that just results in one win or loss for the week instead of a per category score, Yahoo to review trades (I think), and the ability to run Yahoo's live online draft on a Saturday or Sunday you need to be in a premium league.

But that $12.50 each only applies to one league. If you pay the $10 for only StatTracker, you get it for all 4 leagues. And unless you want to add up scores and calculate cumulative avergaes for 175 days of the year, I suggest yuo buy StatTracker. It's a must.

I recommend it although it could cause ulcers. :-o Last year I won my league by only 8 points. Quick story pitchers get -10 for a loss in my league and I had Worrell going on the last day of our League World Series. Giants were down by one run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and Worrell was getting ready to take the loss but Pedro Feliz came up with a runner on first and socked a triple and got Worrell off the hook. I jumped up and pumped my fist from the seat of my computer while following it on Stat tracker. Had Worrell taken the loss I would have lost my league by two. Thanks Stat Tracker :-°

Really? How early did your leagues get registered? We originally registered our league and then upgraded to a premium league right before the 17th became the 18th. When I looked at the available draft times for the free league, all the Sats and Suns were taken, but then once I checked after the league had become a premium, we could draft whenever we wanted to.

Did they just fill up that fast?

Yeah all the dates get filled up really quickly. My leagues that I'm commishing are in the 4000 range, so I got in really easy. All you have to do to get the date you want is sign up for whatever time is available and then check back a lot to see when you can change your time to. They open new spots a couple times a day, they get filled and then they open more. It's their way to balence out the draft times somewhat.

I'm normally a cheapskate, but I'm going for it with Stat Tracker. I remember it from back when it was free and it really was pretty good. I can sit around and do my schoolwork and take breaks to check out some live stats.
