CBS - Used it once and loved it....asthetically better than Yahoo, their GAMECENTER is awesome....doing keepers and minor leaguers is a cinch.....very expensive, but YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR....and stat categories GALORE
No options whatsoever? What in the world are you talking about?
I guess us "Newbies" will have to make due with the 27 offensive and 29 pitching categories. Becoming patronizing fantasy baseball Gods like yourself is what we're all striving for, so besides "quality starts", what other categories should we use that aren't listed below?
Batting Average (Rotisserie, Head-to-Head Only);
Slugging Percentage (Rotisserie, Head-to-Head Only);
On-Base Percentage (Rotisserie, Head-to-Head Only);
On-base + Slugging Percentage (Rotisserie, Head-to-Head Only);
Fielding Percentage (Rotisserie, Head-to-Head Only);
Runs Batted In;
Ground Into Double Play;
Earned Run Average (Rotisserie, Head-to-Head Only);
WHIP Ratio (Rotisserie, Head-to-Head Only);
Strikeouts per Nine Innings (Rotisserie, Head-to-Head Only);
Strikeout to Walk Ratio (Rotisserie, Head-to-Head Only);
Total Batters Faced;
Stolen Bases Allowed;
Batters Grounded Into Double Plays;
Total Bases Allowed;
Exactly what categories that aren't here make paying $150 worth it? Not only that, but you can have a keeper league without it being intrinsic to the software. Why did the people in our private league decide to play Yahoo? Well, we thought it would be better to put the $100+ dollars in the winner's pot instead of giving it to some website. Call us crazy.
Of course people paying league dues are going to say it's worth it. It's 100% human nature to justify ones actions. And you know, maybe to some people, options like having a minor league system are worth it (although if I had to guess, I'd say most people don't care). What it doesn't mean, however, is that people that choose to play a free Yahoo league are somehow inferior or less knowledgeable as so many people that use pay sites seem to say they are.
