Perhaps there is some nuance regarding the world wide web that I've somehow not grasped over the last decade plus ... but why is it when I go to rotoman.com I end up at a domain camping page?

All revolutions begin with defeats. Flood opened the gates.

Just seeing someone else write Eddie Murray's name makes my heart warm.

Speaking of unusual HR trivia. Eddie Murray hit his 300th and 500th career HRs with the same team; but his 400th with a different team.

I have a feeling that this contract is going to be a total albatross for the Angels for quite a few years. However, I'm sure Arte will be thrilled to win a World Series now. Albert is an amazing player, and he's played with serious injuries his whole career. Those injuries (especially his elbow) are going to get him one of these days and he's not going to be worth $25 million a year. Most superstars take a lot for granted, but not Pujols. He's pure baseball and a legend when it's all said and done.

Peter Seitz was the arbitrator. During the Messersmith case, Miller met none other than Don Fehr, who he then brought in as general counsel. And the rest is history.

Flood lost. It's Andy Messersmith and Dave McNally who won their case, but really it came down to very good argument and strategy by Marvin Miller and his associates that the reserve clause was only a one-year power not in perpetuity and they had each pitched one year without a contract after the team exercised its reserve rights.

Thanks Marvin Miller and union lawyers everywhere.

Hmmm ... I was surprised to see that McCovey had 108 HRs after leaving the Giants ... so 521-108 = 413 ... fun list, Alex, thanks!

Jayson Stark informs us in the current issue of BA that only four players hit more homers than Albert before changing teams for the the first time. Who are they?

The who is fairly easy (for people who are good at this sort of thing, which means that I guessed two). The how many not so much.

Hank Aaron 733
Willie Mays 646
Harmon Killebrew 559
Eddie Matthews 494.

Free so soon, Albert. You can thank Curt Flood that you are free so soon.

Our new launch date for the Projector is the Monday after the Super Bowl.

Which means the Evaluator will remain available for free for another week at Rotoman.com.

Are you wondering what these NL heavy hitters would have earned last year in the AL? Easy.

You assign Pujols to the Angels and list AL hitters. Now he earns $35 in 4x4, $32 in 5x5.

He drops in rankings to the seventh best hitter overall in both formats (just ahead of Cano) from the fourth best in the NL (just ahead of, as it happens, Fielder).

Point being, the Evaluator is a lot of fun. Much more fun than reading yet another puff piece about the Super Bowl.
