Shoot, for one thing. Mike Fenger sent me a note this afternoon saying, Please make Chris Sale an R5. I didn't do it. You should. Now I have.

Text and Excel files have been uploaded. Please check back Friday for any notes about corrections. I don't anticipate any important ones, they're not playing games for who knows how long and almost all the changes this week involved injuries and suspensions, and how a shortened season might change those values now. We'll keep tinkering and let you know if anything important presents itself.

So, the full install of the program is uploaded and available on the Subscriber page. I got bogged down tonight, so while the update includes new prices for some players (mostly those expected to miss the early part of the season because of injury (up) or suspension (down) and full Tout Wars prices from this past weekend's auction, I didn't have a chance to fully double check. So please keep an eye out and let me know if you see any mistakes. I hope to get the text and Excel files out tonight, but it might be tomorrow morning. Sorry for any inconvenience.

We will have an update fairly soon. Alex is entering Tout prices, which will be the major part since there has been otherwise little changed in the baseball world since last week. We'll then do an update the week before the season starts and another shortly after the season starts, maybe not on Thursdays. We'll have to see what makes sense when we get there.

Yes. I'm entering the Tout Wars prices now.

It will probably be on the latish side tonight.

Given the national emergency it seems selfish of me to ask, but I'm curious....do you still plan on a March 19 update today in the download section?  Thank you.

I don't think it matters at 55/45 and someone posted earlier that the schedule was pretty balanced.

What do you do with Rockies players if they end up having a schedule with a 55/45 split, for example, on home/road or vice versa instead of the usual 50/50 split?

Everything is relative, because we're creating a linear weights formula for the value out of $3120 for the stats of each player within a closed system. If everything is reduced proportionally in the system, everyone should have the same value.   Agreed on the increased value of those who are anticipated to miss the first half of the season, but otherwise, there shouldn't be a change in player values.

Good point about Mancini.

Your other question has a simple answer. If we lose a third of the season, projections should be reduced by a third.

I'll have to fiddle a bit with the formulas to make sure the value of the projections is for a full season. Shouldn't be hard when we know what a full season consists of.
