    Default Draft software

    Fairly new to Baseball HQ joined mid season this past year. Is there a draft software that Baseball HQ recomends or is tied to? Does anyone have software that they recomend? Thanks in advance for any suggestions or help.

    Rotolab is a separate company, not affiliated with BaseballHQ, but that's the draft software we recommend. It includes a method to download the BaseballHQ projections and we offer a discount for it (but I can't locate the link to that page right now). If I recall correctly, it's usually mid-January before Rotolab is ready for the upcoming season.

    Rotolab is in securely in first place and all the rest tie for last place. And it ain't even close. Buy Rotolab and thank us later.
    What's the rumpus?

    I'm surprised that someone has not started the Annual "When is Rotolab available?" thread.

    Still hoping for a Mac version of Rotolab. Sounded like it was getting close last spring. Have tried using Parallels on my Macbook but I'm just too dumb--and too old?--to really make it work.

    I know Merv is still working on the Mac version.

    Good point. I was trying to minimize the too dumb part.

    +1 on the Customer Service. I don't think Merv ever takes a day off.
    The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

    Not true, we went to Disney World last year, never checked email while we were gone! Yes, a little after mid-January, same as past years. The last several organizational reports are posted about a week before the release.

    +2. Merv has always responded to my (mostly dumb) questions in nano-seconds.

    Agreed.. Rotolab is #1 by a mile and I'm always amazed at how quickly (and how patiently) Merv replies to my dumb questions.

    Merv, are you saying you aren't always patient replying to your wife's dumb questions? We're going to get you into more trouble.

    When it comes to computers.....wow, like two kids in a sandbox. She can almost feel me trying to guide her mouse with my arm gestures. Not pretty......

    Is Rotolab something you buy once, then feed the HQ data (or your own) into it every year or do you have to pay for Rotolab s/w every year?

    You buy it every year. And it's awesome.

    It's an annual license. It's a small, niche market, no viable way to sell it once and rely on volume sales like you can with mass appeal programs. But I usually put a lot of effort into providing new features in each year and the developer (me) is available about 16/7 for questions if you get hung up.

    Thanks for the kudos, Ray.
