Hey all,

I've been working on a tool to help manage a draft. I'd like people's feedback on likes/dislikes (and bugs if you notice them!). If anyone has a spare second, I'd really appreciate your thoughts on the general layout and features...

Thanks!

Great work, I actually do this every year to see where I stand....Where did you get the total # of HR's RBI's and such to base the percentage out of? One league or multiple? and it is out of 12 or 14 teams?

Edit: Don't really understand you're points system either

thanks...

Thanks for the feedback. The numbers for "winning" are from an average of 2 years worth of final numbers from a specific (12-team) league. I'd love to have a better sample size, but haven't been able to find them.

Found a little bug, you can't check off multiple players at a time...well you can but only one player disappears.

At first glance, I was going to say this isn't a bug - how can you draft more than one player at a time (or need to)? But, I can see how this would be good for removing players - instead of having to update with each player taken, you could just keep selecting them, then do one big update. I don't think this is difficult to fix...

This program seems pretty cool... I also think that more than one player should be able to be marked "taken"...

You might want to search on the Cafe, because there have been threads in the past where people posted results from their leagues showing what it took to win.

There was definitely a thread by Rynman (the guy with a Jose Guillen avatar) I think who was compiling a huge database of final standing in all types of leagues.

There was a cafe post regarding league results about two months ago. If I recall, the big debate was that league results can be skewed by the type of league (i.e. how competetive, public, etc).
