Thank you very much. I was comparing the code from the old and new versions and see that the changes were quite significant... completely different website, even. You make these skins look almost easy. I hope you know that your work is very much appreciated, including all the teaching you do in the forums here.

Yeah, the CBSSports site I was using has just made it stupidly hard to parse with a recent change, so I switched to NBCSports, which has a relatively simply site.

That MLBStandings skin is one I fire up myself at least once a day to check things out. I'm a Washington Nationals fan, so while I have VERY little sympathy for you, :-) I'm still a bit nervous myself with the Braves hanging in there as well as they are this year.

Just you wait 'til next year :17angry ( I've been saying that for most of the last 50 years).

BTW, was the CBS issue something to do with the little check box at the top and all the nearly impossible to sort out results? I did try to actually fix it myself, but I couldn't get the webparsed results to show anything like what you were looking for in the original version.

I didn't dig in very deep, as it was apparent at first glance that they had made it much more difficult to uniquely identify the different bits of information, so I quickly started looking for an easier alternative. Doesn't matter all that much where you get it from, the information is all the same. Mostly just want a site that updates as soon as possible after games are over.
