Great job, Peter!

Not so much AP4. For instance, I see I still have $5 assigned to Hunter Morris. But Peter and Mike have him as an R2, so if you're in a 5x5 league, no problem.

Maybe change it to R1.

The bid column is empty. My recommended way of using the software: transfer any of six sets of bids (PK5, MF5, AP4, CBS, LABR, Tout) to the bid column. Overwrite the bids with the salaries of frozen players in your league. Check the totals at the bottom.

There's money to spend (because of the freeze list prices); assign it to select available players. When your prices add up exactly to your league's budget, you are ready for the draft.

If you're pressed for time, you can do this in half an hour. If you have plenty of time, you can endlessly keep tinkering. Every ten minutes you can change the price for Valverde.

Good luck to everyone this weekend!

The data and text files were posted way earlier today, but some sort of text parsing gremlin got into the creation of the Excel file. It was frustrating, but I think we're good now. All files are uploaded, all are ready for your use, if you've bought Patton $ Online.

Two misses: We went gold, as it were, before Jose Valverde re-signed with the Tigers. I really have no idea how much impact that will have. It is not a sure thing that Valverde will be closing games in Detroit this summer, but after Coke fails and because Leland likes Benoit in the 8th, if Al Albuquerque stumbles at all the door may open.

Chris Young the pitcher signed with the Nats today. That doesn't change anything unless there are some injuries.

More SNAFU today. No excuses. It turns out I made some more mistakes with team ids, and ended up having to go through all the players by hand, analog style, to fix things. This took some time.

So, we decided not to rush release the new version, even though it might be ready. We're going to test it tomorrow and if all goes we'll release tomorrow evening.

Thanks for your patience.

We failed to release Patton $ Online on February 3.

The discovery of some, er, mistakes late in the game led to some arduous mechanical correcting. We're going to continue review and clean up today and issue a full release when we're done with it tonight.

Certainly by late tonight a complete Version 1 will be posted at

We're sorry for the delay.
