Ratings guide dropped around next week, if memory serves. But with the complications of running two sets of data, it may be later.

well Last year ratings guide and download dropped on January 16, so that could hit sometime in the next week.

Other than that, here are key dates from Hal's newsletter on 12/31:

Here are some important dates to remember:

January 26th: Pre-Orders Begin.
February 19th: Products start to ship. Please note, the Strat-O-Matic headquarters in Glen Head will be closed to the public, without exception, from 2/19/21 to 3/4/21.
March 5th: Pick-ups are available at Strat-O-Matic in Glen Head. If you wish to pick-up your product, you must order over the phone. We strongly encourage all customers to order via our website for shipment of products this year.
Thanks for all that you do. Community is everything to us. Wishing you all the very best for 2021 and Happy 60th!

Be Well. Play Well.


No mention of 365 launch, but's it's usually in early to mid March

Doesn't that make it sound like the data download will be available on Jan 26 too?

They might be able to get the game released by the end of Feb, possibly.

They never have in the past. ;) and I'm not sure where you get that idea, Pre-orders are for board game/CD-Rom game, it's just the date the new products are active on the website for order, has nothing to do with actual cards or data

No.

The Pre-Order date for the 2020 Board and Windows games from Glen Head is unrelated to the release of the Ratings Guide.

In the recent past the Ratings Guide for has been available on....

2020 - 1/16 - Thu.
2019 - 1/14 - Mon.
2018 - 1/18 - Thu.
2017 - 1/13 - Fri.

On their Range Ratings Preview page, SOM said.... "For more detailed info about the 2020 baseball card set, you may wish to purchase the 2020 Ratings Book/Download, which will be available in early January."

We are beyond early January. Hopefully SOM will keep to their historical schedule and we will have some data to parse over the weekend.

Yeah, come to think of it, I guess I did order the cards separate from the download. Huh.

Guess we'll see. You're right, should be soon.

Ok, I heard a rumor that it won't be for a couple of weeks so....it might time up with the cards. Could be taking them longer this year because they are also doing the "estimated" cards.
