Missing and Delayed Player Stats
Over the last few days I’ve received a lot of emails about Kilg.us not properly updating some player’s stats. Reports include missing stats, delayed reporting of stats, and out-dated season stats. I’ve not been able to investigate every report (timeliness is obviously critical in a real-time stat tracker!), but in each instance I’ve been able to check, the MLB data source is, in fact, reporting the incorrect, incomplete, or out-dated states.
Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about the incorrect stats feed. This is one of the down-sides of using a free, unsupported stats feed. We just have to live with whatever it provides us.
It seems like most people have had success checking later in the evening or first thing in the morning. Hopefully that will suffice in getting everyone the stats they need.
With any luck, there is just a glitch in the MLB.com stats feeds and they will right themselves soon. In the four or so years Kilg.us has been up and running, though, I haven’t seen this happen before, so I’m not quite sure what to expect.
