2017 Season

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

First, let me apologize for being offline for so long. I’ve heard from many, many of you asking about the status of the tool for 2017.

The good news: I rebooted the server and it came back online, so I expect to run through 2017.

The less good news: I have no time to manage, maintain, or update It is, unfortunately, at the bottom of the priorities in life at this point. So, as has been the case the last few years, I will make an effort to keep online but I don’t have time for bug fixes or offering support to users. That means when features fail (like the daily boxscores which relied on a 3rd-party email service that stopped offering an appropriate free tier for us to use; or the Invite a Friend function) I don’t have the bandwidth to diagnose and fix them. As long as the data source for keeps working as it has in the past, I’ll try to keep up. But, it is almost a decade old at this point and is in desperate need of  lot of technical cleanup, so I can’t promise how long it will stay available.

That said, I need to think about the future of If it is going to stay available long-term I either need to find a financial model for that allows me to dedicate work hours to it, or find another group or individual interested in taking off my hands. If anyone with a deep technical knowledge (Rackspace Cloud, PHP, MySQL, XML) is interested in taking over, you can reach me at to discuss.

For now, hopefully daily stats start flowing into as you all get back to using it. Remember that there are always funny glitches around Spring Training stats (and how some of those might carry into the regular season for players sent to the minors).

Good luck with your teams in 2017!
