    Ken, a useful set of data points for balancing your approach, assuming we're going to keep using multi+1 which I think we are:

    Assuming your score in the other 19 categories remains constant, this is your overall score with the given number of points in category #20. The last column is the score gained by moving up one place.

    Points Score Diff
    2 171.597
    3 173.358 1.761
    4 174.607 1.249
    5 175.576 0.969
    6 176.368 0.792
    7 177.038 0.669
    8 177.617 0.580
    9 178.129 0.512
    10 178.587 0.458
    11 179.000 0.414
    12 179.378 0.378
    13 179.726 0.348
    14 180.048 0.322
    15 180.347 0.300

    So moving from 2 to 3 in a category gains you the same as moving from 10 to 15. (which is obvious if you think about it; 3/2 == 15/10) Another way to think about it is that in career pitching you're in first in two categories and last in three. In multi+1 scoring that's worse than being in third-from-last in two categories and fourth-from-last in three, whereas in additive you'd be 13 points ahead of that.

    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.

    Any chance of starting this draft right after the new year? Are we settled on decades? Who has confirmed?

    These things are way more of a time suck for me than I want them to be, but what the heck, count me in for VD 13.

    Probably decades, the SS is not set up for Franchises. We'll do something with franchises next.
