        Six ta go (these will take me the rest of the week )
        Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

          Maybe I am paranoid but it seems like the % questions would benefit from a minimum number of attempts condition.

            Yeah, they probably would, and I probably should throw one in there, but the place I got them from didn't have it. :o I mostly chose people with names that stood out (the one about 31st in walk % is kind of obvious why).

              Heck, there are 27 guys with 100% walk rates.

                Yeah... sorry about that. Let's just say 50 pinch hit appearances and 1000 plate appearances, for the respective questions about pinch hit average and walk percentage. For the questions about HR percentage, I'll say 1000 at-bats.

                  One day to go.
