"You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the goddamn plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all."
    -Earl Weaver

Joseph: According to SP, Felix's career value to date is almost an exact match for Koufax's... and he's not even 30.

Charles: I'll start training him! Also, Felix Hernandez has a decent shot at pitching one third of the shutouts thrown by AL pitchers this year.

Joseph: We can call it SPHound

Charles: By well I mean predicting better than predictors using more than geography.

Charles: Seeing SP Home do well makes me want to train Gumbo (my dog aka "my fat son") to put his paw on printed team pairings in a selection-indicating manner.

Joseph: I hate it when SPHome is outperforming SP50

Charles: I support that scoring system.

Joseph: We are indeed vulnerable to the 2038 bug. The recent "Total Points Upheaval" was a bug fixed, I believe. Now you get the points of losing team if you pick right, and lose the points of your pick if you're wrong. Which is correct IMO.
