Draft Software

John Benson’s Draft Software (c) for 2019 is exclusively licensed to a private group and is not available here. We are not selling the software to the public in 2019.

Forecast stats and values from the 2019 Draft Software and generated using the 2019 Draft Software will appear here in print in the Private Pages (“Articles”) to which you may subscribe (click on “Subscribe Here”) for AL, NL, and Both/mixed player populations during February, March, and early April. Stats and values will be updated continuously from now until April 7, 2019. Revisions will be printed weekly or more frequently during that time frame. In addition to 2019 forecasts and values, we will be publishing discussions, reasoning, opinions, evidence, rumors and speculations, insider views, insights, and thoughtful considerations of rankings of multiple players at each position in each league during this same February-to-April time frame. Our main focus will be who’s going to play and how well they will do in the major leagues in 2019.

In addition to updates in one or more of the above topics daily or almost daily from now until the start of the regular season, updates will continue with less frequency during the regular season. Topics for writing may include responses to readers’ questions about subjects that would be of interest to many or most of our readers.
