Fantasy baseball for the iPhone?

Postby kaiser » Sun Feb 08, 2009 7:12 pm

Anyone know of a good fantasy baseball app for the iPhone? Something to monitor stats with, or perhaps even more. Pickings in the apps store look pretty slim.

Yeah, I looked into this. There really is nothing at the moment.

I do have a source who used to work as a top exec for ESPN who tells me that a bunch of the big services will be unrolling some soon.

I've also been working on a few apps to introduce of my own. I'll keep you all updated.

If you do any running or biking, be sure to install imapmyride. My favorite free app!

Also Lux Touch. Free Risk game.

I'm just surprised that there isn't anything useful in terms of fantasy baseball. There's a few outdated football draft lists, and that's about it. I would have thought ESPN and CBS would have been all over this already. Maybe something will appear down the road.

i have the fanball.com fantasy news application. its a simple, free news app for all the latest player news, with a fantasy spin. it covers all major sports. nothing earth shattering, but i find it fun to check to for the latest news on the train home from work.

Also not really fantasy related, but I believe that the MLB.com app will have live gameday audio this year via the 3G connection. That will be pretty sweet since you could listen in the car while driving.

If it happens, I believe I'll be ditching the XM radio and go iPhone full time while on the go.

I'm crossing my fingers for a Yahoo stattracker app since you can't access it at all on an iphone.
