Thread: Latest News

Company news, mostly, but also baseball in general.

Welcome! You are invited to wander around and read all of the comments that have been posted here at Patton & Co., but as soon as you register you can see the bid limits that Alex, Peter and Mike propose for each player, and you can post your own comments. Registering is free, so please join us!
The update's posted.

PK5, MF4 and APm have all been updated and are ready for auctions this weekend. (Obviously, you'll have to enter your league's freezes and make adjustments.)

Lg1 is the actual prices paid in the CBS 5x5 auctions in early February. Lg2 is the prices paid in the Tout auctions last weekend. Very instructive to compare these two.

In Sort #: the expected batting lineups and pitching assignments for each team.

In Custom: Baseball America's top 100 prospects.

Peter, Mike and I attempt to further identify what kind of prospect we're looking at with our R1-R5 bids.

And then, of course, there are Peter's projections and my assessments of what they're worth in 4x4 and 5x5.

We will have one more update a week from now for people who are drafting next weekend.

He certainly was, and I miss him too. A great guy, great stat service.

We are on target to have the crucial next update posted by noon on Thursday.

Alex, whatever happened to Jerry Heath after he sold out? I think he was a postman in his day job in Tidewater Va. Looking back through your old books I found you mentioned the AL only league I founded after our NL one, namely The Beizbol League. Jerry was great. When i called I got him, not another, or a recording. He responded so graciously and professionally. I also miss that report he always ran at the end of the season that showed what would have happened had our Draft Day rosters been frozen. Later he added one that showed the subsequent stats of everyone traded. Heath was way ahead of everyone back then.

The March 18 update is posted at software.askrotoman.com.

(Note that Neftali Feliz is spelled Neftali Feiiz. You can fix the spelling on his data page. It will be fixed in the March 25 update. Sorry for the inconvenience.)

The Cadillac and the Chevy are out in the driveway. Or, in other words, available now at software.askrotoman.com. Check it out!

The Cadillac hit a pothole when my computer crashed, not in Marfa Texas. Data was lost and our original release date of March 1 for the Cadillac is back in play. Sorry for the initial hopes.

Can I customize the categories with the Cadillac? We double everything-46 player teams, 2200 innings minimum, mixed league, 11 teams, etc. We're a 6 X 6- the standard 4 X $ + IP,K,PA,R.

After purchase will I then have access to the comments throughout the season? Yours is by far the best I've ever seen.
P.S. Found & purchased used Patton's for 89,91,95, & 96.

The official release date is March 1, but we hope to have it out next week. I would love to have it out for the opening of Spring Training, but the date is unsure because of travel issues. The work is almost done.
