Haha, I thought I was a fantasy loser. You guys really sit there flipping back and forth between games on the internet to see how your players are doing? ;-7

Some people dont live in the city that their favorite team is from and the Internet is the only way to keep up with their team.

I like CBS sportsline myself.

I just use Yahoo........ it seems to update quickly (usually stuff that happens on MLB.tv has already been shown on Yahoo's live boxscores) and I'm used to seeing that format for the past 3 seasons. I wish they'd show holds though. And I wish they'd show holds on BigLeaguers.com's player stats like they used to. Looking at when the holds came in a player's game log was very helpful.

I use MLB.com first, and Yahoo for backup. B-)

I'm probably in the vast minority here, but what is the fascination with live scores?

I like Sportsline's layout a lot, but their system has trouble with plays that involve errors or other scoring challenges (ex. wild pitches).

Mlb.com's live stat tracker is faster than CBS's 90% of the time. It has too many details for me though. The look of it makes me dizzy.

I am not familiar with what Yahoo has to offer.

I use ESPN for live box scores, getting stats like Outfield Assists, Errors and Caught Stealing by Catcher.

What is the fascination with watching live games?

My dad loves to tape (for TV and car) just about every Giants game. Then he watches (or listens to) them a few days later. I guess it is a genetic flaw :-b .

I like finding about things within seconds of their true occurrence. It is like a craving.

depends upon how you use it ...

I use it to quickly check box scores.
Its more convienant and quicker than scolling though the different pages.

Personally I don't sit there and watch a whole game with it, but I could easily understand a fan doing it. Not that much different than grandpa listening on his transistor radio if you ask me.

I can sorta see where you're coming from. I like reviewing the scores later in the evening and staying somewhat up to date with baseball.

However, I absolutely refuse to use StatTracker on Yahoo because I like to have something to look forward to in the morning (it's like everyday is Christmas and I can't wait to see what I got). Besides if it looks like I'm not having a good night then I don't want to know about it until the next morning.
