    Thanks, I inputted position for the pitchers. Do I need to input positions for the hitters? Does it effect the results if I don't? Thanks.

    Yes, everyone needs a numeric position. If they don't have a position, they end up in the output twice... once at market salary and once at keeper salary.

    My league's keeper announce date is 3 days before the 4/3 draft. Between now and then, I like to 'predict' who will be kept and see what that does to positional scarcity. I like to try a bunch of different scenarios.

    The only way I can figure out how to do this with CDG/MACK is to enter the keeper salary and position for each player kept - and then manually delete both values if I don't think the player will be kept. I then need to look up each player's keeper value again if I ultimately predict he'll be kept.

    In other words, is there a way to enter and preserve keeper salary values ahead of time for all players (those being kept and those not)?

    Coming soon. In the next release there will be a new "Keeper" checkbox. You will be able to store salary and position and then switch "Keeper" on and off without losing the data.

    Awesome! So by "coming soon" should I expect the update to take place in a week or two (i.e. this year's draft) or later on?

    Is the "save settings" feature coming back within the next the next day or two? I've been putting off most of my draft prep until it does, so that I don't have to keep reentering my scoring system. But, my draft is coming up.

    "Coming back" in what sense? It wasn't removed... I just checked, still there.

    Yes, this year's draft. There's a queue of MACK and CDG features and fixes still in the pipeline that I expect over the next week or so.

    Yesterday I set my league up on MACK, and know without question that I came across a trade evaluator tool. For the life of me, no matter where I navigate to, I cannot find it now.

    It's driving me nuts. Can someone point out the obvious place I'm overlooking so I can draw up some trade scenarios?

    I think you might have caught a brief pre-release of a new version or something, Pete. I've only seen the Trade Evaluator on our development system. I know it's getting close, though....

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it popped up during my work yesterday, though I could have simply imagined the whole thing.

    Thanks. Now I'll stop driving myself nuts looking for it.

    Last week, I entered my values into the input form and clicked the save settings button. The past several days (and I just checked again), that button and the load settings button don't appear for me.

    What browser? Delete your cache, cookies, etc. Those buttons are still there, the problem's local to you.

    I was using Chrome, where I did originally have the buttons. I deleted my cache and cookies, but to no avail. I tried the same in IE8 and nothing doing there.

    If the load and save settings buttons are missing, then CDG thinks you don't have a MACK league defined. If you did have a MACK league defined before you saved settings, please PM me the username you use to login to the website and, if you have more than one league, the league name.

    If you use the MACK team tracker with your keepers, does it calculate draft inflation or do you have to factor that in yourself?

    Right, that's why we added keeper support, jbird. If you have 50 keepers in your league at $500 total out of a $2600 league budget (for instance), then the CDG allocates the remaining 2100 over the rest of the player pool... which is to say it's producing inflation-adjusted prices.

    Any chance of a new version by Saturday? I have an auction Saturday and the keeper feature still isn't working with the points setting.

    Keepers and points should work together now.

    I just tried, worked for me. Thanks Rob!

    Anyone continues to have problems, post your CDG setup here and we'll check it out. Should be all set, though.
