A few months back, I solicited the advice of APBA fans on web-based MLB player stats tracker. More than a few responded with kilg.us which I tried and quite liked. At the time, I just wanted to track the players on my APBA league team so I could see their stats in a one-page format. It works great for that.
Now that the MLB season is over halfway done, I have another purpose for kilg.us. I’d like to start tracking MLB rookies so I can be prepared for next year’s league draft. Fortunately, kilg.us, allows us to create separate “teams” so I just created one called “Rookies” and started entering in rookies that were eligible for the IAL draft this coming year. Our draft isn’t until early next year but as the Boy Scouts say, “Be Prepared”.
Bryce Harper and Mike Trout are on my list. Imagine that.
Fellow IAL manager John “Brando” Brandeberry and I have collaborated to come up with the list and we’ve been sharing the data. When we come up with another player, we can add him to the list. I don’t THINK we’re in competition for the same player positions in the draft so I think I’m safe.
Kilg.us is free and so far there are no annoying ads. The only thing you give them is your email address and your name. It does have a sharing feature so you can share your team with anyone else who is registered with the system.
Anyway, I find it to be valuable service and am surprised that other stat services don’t offer this kind of thing.
