3. BASEBALL MOGUL ONLINE

We have completed upgrading Baseball Mogul Online to incorporate many of the new features in Baseball Mogul 2005, such as new Scouting Reports and 'Overall' and 'Peak' ratings for every player. If you haven't yet played Baseball Mogul Online, now is the time to give it a try. There are lots of open leagues, many with custom rules. For more info, click this link:

(Note: the confirmation e-mails sent by Baseball Mogul Online sometimes gets stopped by spam filters. If you don't receive confirmation of your registration within a few minutes, please contact me at c@sportsmogul.com and I will send the link manually).

4. FOOTBALL MOGUL 2005

Football Mogul 2005 has just reached beta and we expect to have it available for sale on our web site in September.

This year's version of Football Mogul includes stats for over 2500
players, supplied by Sean Lahman. If you haven't yet ordered a copy of his most recent book ("Pro Football Forecast 2004"), I HIGHLY recommend it (http://www.footballproject.com/book/). It's very similar to the insightful Bill James Baseball Abstracts, but with additional strategy and projections for Fantasy Football fans.

5. BASEBALL MOGUL SURVEYS

Finally, there are some polls on our website about new features for Baseball Mogul Online and Baseball Mogul 2006. I would love to get your feedback on these items before we decide on the next features for these games.
