Ha! Thanks...in time we'll share plenty more. We plan to do all kinds of different and interesting things like the Playoff Odds on MLB.com. We're brainstorming for next year already and have some cool ideas. We're excited too and would love to run off a list, but we need to make sure everything is feasible and we don't promise more than we can handle. Been down that road before!

With the recent redesign (ruination) of Yahoo's sports pages the bseball fan and fantasy community has lost the most assecessible and thorough source of scores, stats and player info. It would be great if some entity, possessing proper respect for the data it is custodian of and those who use it, could fill the vacuum.

Congratulations. Can you reassure us that you will retain the autonomy to criticize MLB in your commentary when warranted?

Thanks. The arrangement in no way will impact our ability to be objective in our analysis of anyone. Neither party wants that.
