DraftStreet $300 FreeRoll for Sports Reference Users (sponsor post)

Posted by admin on May 13, 2013

This post was provided by DraftStreet.com, a sponsor of Sports Reference sites.

DraftStreet.com is a fantasy sports website that offers players a chance to compete for free or real money in daily or weekly fantasy sports competitions. Fantasy users don’t have to play only against their friends or co-workers in private leagues, or go chasing after their money once they win their leagues. A first rounder tearing his ACL, no longer ruins your fantasy season. DraftStreet is the answer to all of these problems. DraftStreet offers a variety of different leagues and game-types. They offer salary cap, snake drafts and pick 'em style drafts. You can play in head-to-head, double-up and guaranteed prize pool leagues. If you dream of that big payday, the guaranteed prize pool leagues are for you. League entry fees range from free to $2 to over $400. They offer leagues for MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, PGA, NCAAFB and NCAAB.

CLICK HERE to join the $300 freeroll!

DraftStreet’s salaries fluctuate from day to day (depending on if someone gets hurt, has a long homerun streak going, stinks like BJ Upton, etc), so it takes a real keen baseball mind to find the value picks to make sure your salary stays below the $100,000 ceiling. Value plays can usually be found in prospects, players that have a good history but are slumping, and players with good power (for a hitter) or good stuff (for a pitcher).

The Miami Marlins are a good place to look when it comes to prospects. Jose Fernandez was a bargain when he got called up at $7k and even with his strong April, he’s still cheap enough to get your moneys worth. Five tool prospect Marcell Ozuna is another guy that not many knew about before his 4 hit game against Roy Halladay. Even after that, he’s still an under the radar prospect that will give you great value for now.

CLICK HERE to join the $300 freeroll!

New Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton is slumping and because of that, his price is down for someone with his talent. Blue Jays catcher JP Arencibia has great power and won’t hit for much average, so his price is low and gives you good value. Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow has tremendous stuff, but he’s just as likely to strike out 10 guys as he is to giving up 6 earned in 3 innings.

Do you think you’re the best fantasy player out there? Do you wish that drafting Jose Reyes and Giancarlo Stanton didn’t cost you your fantasy season? If so, DraftStreet is the place for you! Deposit now and use the code “BR30” and you will receive a 30% bonus on your first deposit.

Daily Player Stat Logs

Posted by Neil on May 9, 2013

Today, we added a new feature to B-R: Daily Batting and Pitching roundups for the previous day's games.

At the most basic level, these reports let you see a (sortable) list of everyone who hit or pitched in baseball yesterday, but they also come with the capacity to find player stats over the past N days (where N is customizable), to find players at various minor-league levels, and to find players in specific organizations. We list a number of sample searches on the form, so you can get an idea of what the Daily Stats tool can give you.

So feel free to play around with it, give it a try, and let us know if you found a bug or have a suggestion.

Game Previews

Posted by Neil on May 7, 2013

If you're a Baseball-Reference addict, chances are you've seen the link for our Game Day Previews on the front page of the site. But if not: each morning, we generate preview pages for the day's MLB games.

These pages contain detailed info on the probable starting pitchers (including a list of their most recent starts), recent results for each team, the last 10 head-to-head matchups between the two teams, and active rosters for each team (including platoon splits and head-to-head results against the each member of the opponent's pitching staff/lineup). Be sure to check them out if you're watching the game at the ballpark or at home.

And to keep up with the latest action, you can subscribe to the RSS feed for our previews, or you can sign up to have them delivered to you automatically via e-mail. And if you don't want to sort through the whole league when trying to find your favorite team, you can bookmark the link to your favorite team's page, which gets updated daily for each upcoming game.

Finally, if you want to see who was on a roster at an earlier point in the season, you can call up archived copies of previews for every game this year by using the "Find Date" drop-down menus at the top of the previews portal.

2008-2012 Minor League Splits and Gamelogs Added

Posted by admin on May 2, 2013

Felix Doubront 2011 Minor League Gamelogs & Splits

Building on the 2013 splits and gamelogs that went out today we've added gamelogs and splits for 2008 to 2012. Row Summing still works for these gamelogs. Let us know what you think as we work to add more and more minor league data to the site.

2013 Splits Added to Minor-League Player Pages

Posted by Neil on April 30, 2013

In addition to the Gamelogs Sean mentioned adding the other day, we've also added splits tables to the 2013 gamelog pages for minor-league batters and pitchers.

They aren't quite as detailed as the splits you'll find on our major-leaguers' pages, but they do tell you what kind of performances the player has put up vs. opponents of each handedness (platoon), at home/on the road, month-by-month, in clutch situations, and more. We even have a split to see how the player did against opposing batters/pitchers who were younger or older than the player himself, since age is such a huge consideration in the minors.

They're on the same pages as the new gamelogs, so go to a player's minors page and click the link that is just above the player's batting or pitching stats (marked "Gamelog/Splits").

Greg Spira Award Announcement

Anyone who knows of Trent McCotter's work as a member of SABR will not be surprised that his research garnered the first Greg Spira Award. Greg was a dear friend of our site who passed early last year. Baseball-Reference.com is honored that we could co-sponsor an award in his honor.

2013 Minor League Batting & Pitching Gamelogs w/ Row Summing

Posted by admin on April 29, 2013

Wil Myers 2013 Minor League Gamelogs / Jesse Biddle 2013 Minor League Gamelogs

I have been hoping to add this for awhile, but finally got around to it. We just added minor league gamelogs for the 2013 season. These have many of the same features that our major league gamelogs have. Clicking on two rows allows you to find the sum of any span of games. We also added errors to the output, so you can keep track of what the players are doing defensively as well.

To get there, go to a player page and click the link that is just above the player's batting or pitching stats.

I hope to add a whole lot more on this front, so stay tuned.
