What's New in Version 1.04
Fixes for devices on iOS 4.3
Great info but would love to see update!
Can you please add a section purely on player temps?! I want to know who is the hottest player in baseball today - sortable by date like last week, last month, etc. And who is the hottest on the road. And who are the most dangerous match ups statistically for a pitcher on that day.
Also, I would like it to be more in-game friendly. For example, I was at Dodger stadium and it wasn't worth hitting all the buttons on the screen to follow along with the game match-ups. I wanted to see the information on one screen not having to switch around by team and pitcher each half inning - was completely frustrating.
Great but not without flaws
Overall this app is amazing. The only issue I had was when in matchup mode I found that the angels were absent from the batting team selection. The pitchers are there but no batters. There are also quite a few retired players that still show up on team rosters and with Bill James temps? Jason Varitek, Mike Lowell, and JD Drew to name a few. Just makes me question the validity of the temperature if they technically have one but haven't played for over a season. Fix those issues and this is a Five Star App
I'm not sure what more you could ask for from a FREE app. If you love baseball like I do you will love this app. I use it to check match ups in my fantasy league but also for pure enjoyment. There is so much info available. I would have paid $5 for this app.
