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.

CLICK HERE to be entered into a $300 freeroll for this Friday nights games.

Happy Birthday to Basketball-Reference.com!

Posted by Justin Kubatko on May 10, 2013

Today is the ninth anniversary of the launch of Basketball-Reference.com. BBR debuted as a standalone website on May 10, 2004, but of course it is now part of the Sports-Reference.com family of sites.

I still do 99 percent of the work on the site, so I take great pride in its growth over the years. How much has it grown? The site's traffic is now almost 400 percent higher than it was just five years ago.

That growth, of course, would not be possible without our dedicated users, so in addition to the birthday wishes I would also like to extend a warm thank you to everyone who has played a part in making this site what it is today.

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.
