Fantasy Fans Rejoice

Postby xpose » Sat Apr 12, 2008 8:47 pm

At least I hope you will rejoice. :) Much like you guys, I am probably a little bit too obsessed with fantasy sports. So obsessed that I made my own fantasy website that will give me player news and stats on my cell phone when I'm not home. I know you must be thinking I am crazy or this is just some lame attempt to spam, but hear me out pretty please. :)

Basically, the service works by text messaging an email address and getting a reply back with the info you want. So lets say you are at a bar, but want to know how long Posada is going to be out for, or if he's gonna play DH. Simply text "nL pos nyy" to mlb@fantasy-news.net . Or maybe its player stats that you want about a certain player. Let's say you are curious about how horrible ortiz has been doing lately. Just text "sf david bos" to mlb@fantasy-news.net. (If you've noticed, the "F" and "L" stand for first and last name searches).

This service is completely free and is currently undergoing beta testing (which is why I am here). Please try and test it out for me and provide feedback if such a service would be useful. If it sucks, then tell me so. If you want more information on how to use it, then go to the help page at http://www.fantasy-news.net/mobile/

In the future I can add things like top 5 shortstops of the week, month, or even day. It is completely up to you, if its something you would find useful.

If you guys have any questions or comments then just reply here and I will do my best to answer.

If you were the one with a sprintpcs phone. . .try sending the command again when you get a chance. So far it seems only verizon wireless works 100% of the time.

Will it give you live numbers? That would be pretty slick.

Live numbers aren't possible at the moment because that would cost me a heep of money. The boxscore stats get updated once per day in the morning.

I am still trying to work out why att users get no love.

After that I am going to work on a trade analyzer. . .
