    This widget isn't pulling in standings data for the previous or new season. It appears to be broken. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    It appears that the standings javascript this plugin uses has been discontinued by MLB. If this is the case a whole new approach is needed. Still researching. If anyone has a solution please let me know.

    skrillville -

    After playing with this for a while I decided to roll my own plugin as a replacement. Instead of depending on MLB's standings, as Starcross did, I'm using an open source XML by Erik Berg (http://erikberg.com/mlb/standings.xml). The XML is updated daily (usually early in the morning Eastern time) to reflect the previous night's games.

    I'm using it one of my blogs right now and it looks like it's working fine. I even integrated the CSS from Starcross so it looks nice.

    I plan on tweaking it a little bit and then releasing it on WordPress.org but would love if you'd try it out on your own blog before then. It would be great to get some feedback and ideas for future version.

    Thanks,
    Dave
