    Not so far as I know. I did have you in first for a while in my projections, but my pulling ahead of you in my projections was more about me finding better picks for myself (e.g., Lolich over Lidge) than it was about you doing anything suboptimal. Late in the draft I was well ahead of you in pretty much every permutation I ran.

    I do think you might have done better with using your P on Dave Parker and another weaker letter (e.g., IUZ) on a pitcher. When I took Dave Parker, that was partly to prevent you from getting him.

    In theory, Parker was pretty close to Puckett and Pinson in value on a generic team, but on both of our teams he seemed to help us quite a bit more than the other P options.

    I have El Bene as the #3 with the Roberts pick over Sutter, who I initially had projected for him. The Roberts pick knocks me from 3rd to 5th (assuming I have the next two picks right).

    The problem with projecting picks is that if you get a few key ones wrong, it could convince you to take the wrong player/combo.I was going to take Sutter with Altuve, but my projections convinced me to take Sandberg + Appier. Oh well!

    Thanks I was never sure when to pull the trigger on P. Sort of felt boxed in to Price when I settled on him. Oh well it was a good run. Congrats.

    BTW, Cal Ripken gives MJL a 4.8pt boost over Vern Stephens in the end.

    Hm, I don't see that at all. I see a 1.3-point boost for him and no overall change in the standings. (except maybe places 8 and 9, which are still to be determined by Heye's pick anyway)

    I have all picks entered besides the final two, and MJL has 180.0 pts with Ripken, and 174.4 with Stephens.

    EDIT -- I'm off with your standings. I'll have to double check.

    I have the same thing as KS, though to be fair even the 1.3 move is enough to drop me behind revo. Are you for some reason not using Stephens 1949?
    In the best of times, our days are numbered, anyway. And it would be a crime against Nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that it put off enjoying those things for which we were presumably designed in the first place, and which the gravest statesmen and the hoarsest politicians hope to make available to all men in the end: I mean the opportunity to do good work, to fall in love, to enjoy friends, to sit under trees, to read, to hit a ball and bounce the baby.

    KS, can you do me a favor and update the History sheet with the data entries?
