This is more trouble than it's worth. I tried it last year, I won't be trying it again.

I don't think I'll be buying StatTracker this year. I did last year and thought it was nice, but checking the boxscores doesn't take long and it gives you a better idea of what's going on in the MLB in general rather then just your players. So even if I had StatTracker, I'd still be checking most of the boxscores anyways.

Also, when I have to wait until morning to see how I did it gives me a chance to set my lineup for that day. I'd still check in in the morning to see if any moves were made in my league and to make sure I have my lineup set so I don't really see the point in it.

I can wait a few extra hours to get matchup updates. Even though the price is very reasonable, I don't think it'd be worth it for me.

With 162 games, it's certainly a much better bargain than the football Stattracker.

I've bought it in the past, but as jake_twothousandfive pointed out, there are benefits to perusing the box scores rather than the tunnel vision you can get just looking at your guys.

I'm down to two money leagues, one in Yahoo and one in Sportsline (already have live tracking with that), so I'm thinking of passing for the first time in years, not because of the money, but because I want to see more box scores for myself.

Not I. If I'm using a website because it's free, then I'm going to keep it free.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I will, when I get bored on summer days I like to see what's going on with my fantasy teams and like it's been said digging through box scores gets old fast.

The way I see it, 20 weeks of fantasy baseball, at 10 bucks for the season, and it costs you 50 cents a week. Divide that by 7, and it's about 7 cents a day, and if you have 4 leagues, it is about 2 cents a day per league. If it takes me 1 minute to check my daily stats compared to 10 minutes, going through all the box scores and finding my players, then I am saving myself around 10 minutes a day, or an hour a week. Saving myself nearly 20 hours over a summer, is way more valuable than 10 dollars.
