Web Pick of the Week: ESPN’s Daily Leaders

by Matt Smith

Web-PickThis week’s Web Pick is the Daily Leaders page on ESPN.com.

It can be difficult to keep track of all that happens in MLB on a daily basis, often with 15 games taking place while you are fast asleep in the early hours of the morning. Scoreboards and boxscores are decent sources of info, but the most noteworthy performances don’t always jump out at you if you’ve only got time to skim-read them.

While the free Fastcast video on MLB.com is a nice idea, it covers the games a bit too quickly for my liking so that it’s difficult to take everything in. The free Daily Recap videos on MLB.com are excellent, but I rarely seem to have the time to watch them all.

That’s why I like the Daily Leaders board. It lists the top performers on any given day, ranked by ESPN’s own equation, and provides the relevant stats to show what they did. You can sort it by league and by position player/pitcher, although the one negative about the system is that there isn’t a separate equation and page for relievers and therefore their work isn’t recognised.

It’s a quick and easy way to see all the notable performances, whether you want the info for fantasy baseball purposes or just to keep up with the latest news from on the field.
