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.

I think the odds are very high that the MLB will not play a 162-game season. In fact, I think 140 games would verge towards the optimistic. This presents an inherent problem with the software. Mike Trout currently earns $36 with 514 ABs. But if you reduce his ABs to 414 (a reasonable guess with a shortened season), his earnings drop to $28. 

But obviously Trout is worth the same regardless of how many games the AL plays. The only thing that drops are his counting stats, but everyone else's counting stats would drop as well. 

So, is there any way that I can adjust the settings to create values based on a 140-game season? Or do I have to work within the assumption that it will be a 162-game season?

Where this comes into play, in particular, are injured players. If I guess that Trey Mancini will resume playing on August 1, his 60 games would be worth more with a 140-game season than a 162-game season.
