  • Ability to Set Future Lineups
    We added the ability to set future lineups up to 1 week in advance.

  • Improved Lineup Pages
    We updated the design to show position slots, instead of just showing all the players. Commissioners have a new option for a lineup deadline (Team owners can change a player's status until that player's game for that day has started). Team owners can view their lineup after the set lineup deadline has passed. Team owners can now see the lineups for the other teams. There are new lineup views that allow owners to see lineups including - games played by position, opponents for the next week, and player stats. The lineup pages display the injury status of a player.

  • Updated Free Agent Page

What We Added in 2006

  • Improved Login System
    Instead of having to login to your team each time to make roster changes and select free agents, we've re-worked the login system so you need to login just once at the start of the season. We now set a cookie that will remember you and your leagues so you won't need to login each time.

  • Anonymous or Non-Anonymous Forums
    You can now set up your league's forum to allow for anonymous posting or have each member post with their name. We've had requests for both options over the years.

  • Improved Free Agent Listings
    We've worked hard this winter to improve the ease of use of the pages that display free agents and allow you to adjust your roster. You can now pick up free agents directly from the free agent page and we've increased the data displayed. We've also now included all the pages to edit your lineup and team settings within the main league HQ page. Now you can access all the league data quickly without having to re-login to change your roster.

What We Added in 2005

    Leagues can limit only logged on users to post in the league forum.

What We Added in 2004

  • Automated free agent system
    Our software can automate the process of choosing free agents for your league without any work for the commissioner. Your league can have free agents determined by:

    Blind Claim System - Teams submit their free agent moves during the week in the form of a message to the commissioner. At a specific time, these messages become viewable to the commissioner. It is then up to the commissioner to make the transactions for the league.

    Automated Claim System - Teams submit players that they wish to add or drop. At the end of a specific day or everyday, the transactions are automatically handled based on criteria set up by the commissioner (first-come, an order set by the commissioner, or based on order in standings).

    Free Agent Budget System - Teams are given a set amount of money that they use to bid on free agents. The team that bids the most money on a free agent, gets that player. The FAAB system allows for $0 bidding or a fixed budget.

    All three of these options allow the commissioner to conduct retroactive moves and re-work anything if circumstances change. Or you can have all transactions go through your commissioner and he can input them whenever he has time.

  • League Deadlines
    We've expanded the options for weekly deadlines for roster moves. Each league can now choose the specific time and day lineups can be entered - or choose before the start of games that day.

  • Waivers
    Players that are released can be kept off the free agent market for 24 hours to 7 days, allowing your league's commissioner to enforce your league's waiver rules in the interim.

  • Trades
    Your league members can now make trade proposals through our software and complete the trades without any work for the commissioner. Our trade system allows the commissioner to set up a number of options for this process including the ability to approve all trades, make trades only on weekly deadlines and enforce a trade deadline date.

  • League Financials
    If your league charges per transaction, our system will allow you to keep track of this automatically by setting dollar values for each move.

What We Added in 2003

  • Head-to-Head Leagues
    We now offer two head-to-head league formats: head-to-head categorical and head-to-head points. You can set your own schedule for any period length and add playoff games as you see fit.

  • Set Weekly Lineup Feature
    We've improved the way team owners can enter moves each week. We now allow each league to set positional requirements and let owners enter only a maximum number of players at each position.

  • Expanded Stat Reports
    Find all the stats you need with our expanded reports: MLB year-to-date data for your players for the year, last 7 days, last 14 days and last 28 days. Totals for your active players for year-to-date, last 7 days, last 14 days and last 28 days. Totals for your reserve players for the same periods are also listed. We've also added the ability to search between any two dates for your players' stats. Plus you will find projections from RotoWire staff experts.

  • Import Data From Last Year's League
    Do you want to keep your league name, team information and player salaries and contract status from last year? No problem! Our new system allows you to choose which data you want to import from 2003.
