Question for people who use CBS w/ minor leaguers

Postby SenPalpatine » Thu Jan 15, 2009 12:40 am

Can anyone tell me how CBS Sportsline works with minor league players? Are they part of the player pool? I've always been frustrated with how crappy Yahoo's player pool is managed, but I'm wondering how good CBS is. If we do a snake draft for farm systems, will I just be able to add them to each owner's roster???


Thanks for the help

CBS does have a good number of prospects in the player pool. For the lesser known prospects CBS allows you to create a "placeholder" or generic player to place on the roster. You just have to switch them out when the player is added to the database.

Overall I am happy with using CBS for my prospect leagues

You can't have a separate draft via the draft applet, if that's what you mean.

But you can do an offline draft and put each player on manually, which doesn't take long at all.

There is a separate minor league status, so those players are put at the bottom of the page, it's really a flawless setup.

For our supplemental draft, I just have each owner make an Add when it is his turn and then e-mail the next guy. Everyone is notified of the pick automatically, too.
Be excellent to each other.
