    I've wrapped up my comps with new posts #376 and 377 in my musings thread. The first post covers Perucho Cepeda and Pancho Coimbre, and the latter one covers Leon Day and Ray Dandridge.

    I still have two to go: Perucho Cepeda and Pancho Coimbre. They deserve a post of their own, as I've got to construct a seat of the pants estimate of their careers from partial career data (they played a lot in Puerto Rico before the Puerto Rican Winter League, and we have little or no data on them for that time).

    I've added a lot of major league comps for Negro Leaguers in my Musings (the stuff in posts 367-371) thread, and hope to finish the infielders tonight. Some of the guys were requested in this thread, some not, but some of the greats of the Negro Leagues are included as well. Some guys, like Dihigo, are just too hard to capture accurately, and others had projections that I just had trouble accepting, mainly by grossly overstating career AB/PA in my opinion.

    The pitchers not covered in those threads are really difficult. I'll see what I can do with some of the other hitters, though. Also, you may want to look at this thread. as well.

    White Comparables For These Negro Leaguers

    Hi guys,

    I develop third-party rosters for Out of the Park Baseball, a text-based sim game. I am currently putting together a Franchise Stars roster set, with the best players in the history of each franchise, and want to add a hundred or so Negro Leaguers to the set as well. I have a bunch of the big names, but I'm hoping for your help to give me some white players who are comparable to the Negro Leaguers I've included below. Any help at all is greatly appreciated, be it one guy or 20.
