You'd be in big trouble if your computer saw you talking to the screen 'man, 0 for 4 AGAIN, Soriano sucks, I'm going to trade his ass'

I, for one, would prefer to have the final say so on my lineup, rather than letting HAL or whoever adjust it for me.


I agree...this would have to be a suggested best lineup. Better yet, if you can feed in some of the free agents you are currently watching, you could make some moves if desired.

One of my pet projects includes an Excel-like application specifically designed for creating your draft sheet and setting up draft day strategies. Before I knew about the Lahman database (which is what I am using as the backend now) I had automated stat retrieval from the MLB.com database. It worked but one of the reasons I scrapped the idea applies to your idea.

Your strategy for retrieving the data from an online source could change without notice. With good design you could minimize the code adjustments but you would still have a program/script that could stop working anytime MLB.com, for instance, changed the interface to their data.

The only sure-fire way to do this would be to pay a company like Stats to provide the data you needed so you would have a guarantee. But once you start paying overhead now you have to charge for the software. It's a great idea that would probably be too big of a headache and require too much resources to be worth doing as a side project. Just my $.02. ;-)
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
