Bloomberg Sports today formally launched its third season of “Front Office”; the latest, most comprehensive and easy to use fantasy baseball analytic tools on the market. The updated offerings are part of the continued enhancement and customer support that has helped grow “Front Office” into the top paid fantasy baseball tool available in the marketplace.
The updated suite of tools in “Front Office 2012” for the regular season will include opportunities for users to obtain instant updates via text and email on players on their roster through the new ALERTS! feature, and an additional feature designed to support leagues that are specific to the American and National League. Fans will also be able to obtain a free customized analysis of their fantasy team, showing how they compare to other teams on each scored stat, as well as receiving customized recommendations to improve their team. The product will retain all previously added features, including the ability to sync with the major hosting sites from Yahoo!, ESPN.com, and CBSSports.com as well as others, in order to easily tailor all recommendations to all fantasy team and player specifications.
“The latest additions to ‘Front Office’ were a direct result of the feedback we have received from our subscribers, and we are very excited to add these pieces to what is already the most comprehensive and robust product available in the marketplace,” said Bill Squadron, head of Bloomberg Sports. “Our tools are uniquely customized for each fantasy player’s actual roster and settings, providing the best projections and recommendations each day, from the draft through the entire season.”
The launch of the new tools will give fans ample time to review and make the best possible choices for their fantasy drafts, most of which will take place in March. In addition to the ability to sync with almost any league provider, “Front Office” offers a customized B-Rank that provides up-to-date lists for roster changes, free agent pickups and other decisions, as well as a customized dashboard which gives players all critical information about their team or teams in one easy to follow location.
All of Bloomberg’s fantasy tools are now available in PC, MAC or for most mobile devices, giving fans the ability to access the tools from wherever they are. Bloomberg’s Fantasy Draft product was the leading seller among paid sports apps in the iTunes store for most of the 2011 season, further proof that the Bloomberg sports analytic tools are quickly becoming the fantasy tool of choice amongst both avid and casual players.
Strategic partners for Front Office 2012 include: Yahoo Sports, CBSSports.com, USA Today, and SiriusXM as well as the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).
