I'm with Mudman. The biggest reason I'm still using CBS is because it keeps all the stuff from past years. And the funny thing is, I keep my own personal backup, so I have all the info on my own anyway.
As for other reasons to use CBS, I feel their customizable stat reports are really good. It allows me to make my own searches, so I can look for Pitchers who have higher K/9 and still keep track of ERA and WHIP (even though we don't specifically use those catagories.)
I like the ability to get daily emails, and control (to a certain extent) the info that comes in that email.
The stats export to excel pretty well (they even have a spreadsheet link for exporting it) if you are the type to crunch your own numbers.
The controls for the commissioner are pretty good.
Live scoring is nice, but I wish it had the ability to show an optimal lineup. But it does add the live audio from games. I think only CBS allows that.
again, if you want to try it out for half off use this code (I still have two slots left) http://cbssports.com/ref/46700490
btw, I like the avatar. Go Big Red!
Thanks for the feedback. Its hards for me to compare since I've never used CBS but it sounds like we have a lot of those same features except its free. I am in a very competitive league and we have used the same host site for years. It even keeps stats from the previous year such as all transactions, the draft, lineups, team stats, etc.pretty much all the stuff that your host site is doing for you, in regard to the past stats, is what cbs does. I believe that the first site that allows you to import your entire league history will make out like gangbusters. It seems for the most part once you've started playing with a specific service, you are less inclined to leave, which brings me to my second point.
The bottom line...whatever site your league is comfortable with is the way to go! Good luck and have fun this season.
