I didn't read through the thread. So if this has been brought up then feel free to berate me or whatever. But Stattracker doesn't seem to be updating for me. The gamechannel scores just freeze exactly where they are when I load it and don't update unless I refresh the page. I'm running Google Chrome.

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but nowhere in the Box Score for an individual game does it say if a player has hit a hoe run or stolen a base.

I know someone asked this before, but is there a way to get back to the old stattracker until this one becomes usable I feel like we're all stuck with a Beta version.

Hi, new here, but been using the Stat Tracker for 4 years now. I'm going to wait to pass judgment until the kinks get worked out. That being said, in addition to the other things I've read here, I noticed something today:

It seems as though in my head-to-head league, the ERA and WHIP in the "Matchup Details" don't continually refresh as the games progress.

I'll also give my big thumbs up to wanting my players highlighted when they are at bat, and the whole "2nd Up, On Deck, etc." Hugh reason to use it -- then I can watch my players when they are doing their thing...

We just released a new version about an hour ago (if you right click on the app after it loads, you should see something about version 1.1.2).

This version fixed a few bugs and put in a few features that you guys were asking for, the biggest of those being that we now indicate in StatTracker when a player is at bat, on deck, 3rd up (in the hole) or on base. We also bold a player if they are at bat.

Lots of other fixes in there as well, so let us know how it is working for you.

Hello, Genie, our league uses the category K/BB instead of K. Appreciate if you can put on the exact number of Ks and BBs instead of merely a fraction number. Thanks. :)

The stat is a ratio. That's how ratios work, just like batting average is the H/AB ratio and slugging percentage is TB/AB.

For example If a team has 50 Ks and 25 BB, the K/BB ratio is 2. If the opposing team has 60Ks and 40 BB, the K/BB ratio is 1.5 and that team loses the category. It would look ridiculous if the matchup said Team A: 50/25, Team B:60/40

Just stumbled across this site and I love it.

I usually love the Yahoo Stattracker, too. But the color scheme hurts my eyes. Literally. The font appears in light gray and I feel like Helen Keller when I look at it. Is there any way to change that? Thanks so much.

You used a poor example in H/AB, because those show compiled in total, not simplified (e.g. if your team is 10/30, it's not going to simplify to 1/3, which is apparently what is happening on K/BB).

ideally, we'd like to see 3 columns of K, BB, and K/BB, but if only one column is allowed for one category, I guess the much more informative format 60/40 is preferred over just the ratio number 1.5. we can do the math ourselves.

Some things still aren't updating right. You can see Starlin Castro is 1 for 2, but his AVG still shows 1.000, OBP is 1.000, and OPS is 2.000.

(Thanks for getting the At Bat bolding, On Deck, etc. back in there!)

EDIT: About 10 minutes later, the stats did update to what they should be without me having to re-launch ST. Strange.

Edit #2: Starlin got a hit in his 3rd at bat, and all the rate stats updated immediately and correctly this time.
