How does CBS update their player database?

Postby mktgteach » Mon Apr 07, 2008 7:07 pm

I am confused to how/when CBS updates their player database. CBS has so many players in their database that mean absolutely nothing to fantasy. However, top prospects like Jason Heyward, etc. are not in the database. So when do they update their database and how do they determine who to put in the database?

I am confused and frustrated.

I too find that CBS' player database is too unwieldy, especially since my league doesn't use minors (with the exception of a stashee or two such as Longoria). However you can find the newest players added to the database on http://XXX.baseball.sportsline.com/play ... -additions (replace XXX with your leagues name), unfortunately they don't provide an RSS feed for the page so I guess you just have to vigilantly check it every few days. I wish they would just include players on the 40 man rosters and maybe Baseball America's Top 100 list. I really don't see there being much demand for players beyond that.
