First off, as a casualty of the recent explosion of layoffs and unemployment, I really don't have the money to spend on a luxury item such as stattracker. You say $10 isn't a lot of money, but that's probably because you get $20 in allowance a week from your mommy and daddy. As an adult w/ one fixed income at the moment, I'm trying to decide between heating my house, or checking out live scoring on Yahoo (which is free on other sites) - that's no decision at all. Second, only an idiot would pay for something that is free somewhere else.bigh0rt wrote:Or you could see that if you are up by 2 Runs and are outscored by 3 Runs on Saturday that you are currently down 1 Run heading into Sunday, which shouldn't really be some rocket science calculation.
You missed the point. The calculation itself is not difficult. The difficult, or time consuming part, is clicking on each player, and checking the box score of each game, then noting the stats for each one of you players. Adding up the stats to determine you weekly total through Saturday, so that you can make an informed decision about who to start on Sunday. ESPN free living scoring gives you all this information at your teams main page, therefore, you don't have to waste time checking out the box score of each game.bigh0rt wrote:You've gotta love the impossible to please crowd, though. Only they could turn a thread about a cool new little feature into a complaint within the first two replies of a thread.
I guess I should just post, "Thank yahoo for slightly improving an already existing feature! This alone has convinced me to stop using ESPN and use Yahoo alone! Great job." Yahoo pats itself on the back.Is there a reason why this must be done on Saturday night?
I would assume most people would wish to know where their team stood before Sunday. Say you were up by much in RBI, HR, but down by 2 in SB. If you had an open roster spot, you could pick up a second SB specialty guy in hopes of getting enough SB's out of Willy + the new FA pick up. Simple logic IMO.I'm convinced that you never used Stattracker in your life.
Confused by this comment... why?
all I have to say to this is wow
I'm an adult on a fixed income and I'd choose yahoo stat-tracker over heating my house any day of the week
