I hope so. I wouldn’t say I’m ready, but I’m frantically getting ready under our new website here, DraftBuddy.com.
Its weird, I feel like we’re behind, when in fact we usually release the Baseball Cheatsheet Compiler & Draft Buddy in late, late February or early March.
Last year Rick and I agreed for him to get the projections done earlier, and for me to get the software done earlier, because it seemed like a lot of fantasy baseball sites were already going steady last year at this time. Now when I look around, it seems like a lot of fantasy baseball sites are already going steady.
Football season is now officially over though, so toss your helmet and grab your cap and glove. Spring is in the air (ignoring the sub-freezing temperatures outside my door for a minute). Here is where we stand on the baseball front as of today, two days after the Super Bowl:
- Rick’s player projections are up on the website. Sortable, deep, and I pushed Rick to include Blown Saves and Holds this year. Thanks Rick!
- Version 1.0 of the Baseball Cheatsheet Compiler & Draft Buddy are available for download. We’ve already had a few eager beavers wander over and sign up for 2010. Thanks to you guys!
- Rick is updating the ever changing depth charts, and he’s written a few team overviews in the fantasy baseball blog.
- Don’t forget the player stats, games played by position and player pages.
All in all, that is not a bad start I think. Over the next two months however, we plan to get a whole lot better.
Rick will be consistently updating the projections and depth charts, which will also provide updates for the Cheatsheet Compiler. As usual I’ll tackle the Compiler & Draft Buddy tech support via email and our message board.
We are working towards a complete draft kit this year, complementing the projections plus Compiler & Draft Buddy with player rankings, average draft position data (already included in the CC/DB), mock draft results, sleepers, busts and other articles.
If you feel like you (a) know your fantasy baseball, (b) can write with nearly perfect spelling and grammar, and (c) can entertain us in the process, and want to contribute to the cause, then drop me an email with your idea.
Also, in terms of feedback and new feature suggestions for the Compiler, Draft Buddy or the website, I’d love to hear those as well.
How to contact me? A few ways. I have yet another email address for this website, firstname.lastname@example.org. The message board works too, but you’ll need to register an account (for free) if you don’t already have one.
Anyone who registers at the website will be included in our semi-regular newsletter, which you can specify by topic or topics you are interested in – fantasy baseball, fantasy football, fantasy hockey or sports pools from former home of the CC/DB and sister site MyOfficePool.ca.
Okay, enough talk and time for me to get back to work. Enjoy the baseball stuff we have right now, especially the Compiler & Draft Buddy, and expect more and more baseball content to fill up this website as we countdown to your fantasy baseball drafts. Are you ready?
