ESPN projections for 2008

Recommended Posts

Do any of you use ESPN league manager? I put in our league scoring and it projects all players for 2008 according to our system. I was going to use it for our upcoming draft this weekend, but don't want to make a bad decision. Are there better sites or is ESPN ok to use?

thanks

So you're asking if ESPN league manager can accurately see into the future and predict the stat lines of hundreds of major league baseball players?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say they come close on some, and not very close on others.

Oh no, I know of Grey's background. I want to know how much time he is investing into helping them. I don't know if this is even possible to determine, but I put zero stock into what ESPN writes except for knowing what my competition will be doing. If Grey's providing significant input that opinion may change. If he's just fielding a couple phone calls/week then I'll continue to look elsewhere.

I can't find a link

But I think I read that he's in charge of the West Coast scouting for fantasy baseball.

After looking over the draft kit provided by ESPN, I came away very impressed(much more than years past-but thats not saying much)

I'm sorry to see Jason leave the Mastersball/fantasybaseball.com family.

I guess your scoring system doesn't like SBs
