I Think I Need a Day Off

If you will permit me to whine a little, other than Christmas Day I haven't taken a day off since early October. I think I am starting to feel the effects...my right hand is involuntarily twitching and shaky.

There is still a lot to do to get the book ready. Jeri is starting the editing process and I still have to get the Top 50 Hitters and Top 50 Pitchers lists together. We have lots of orders to process.

The 50/50 thing is the main issue for me now. I have the Top 10 hitters done, but after that it gets really complicated. How do you balance the overall ceiling of the player, how polished or close to the majors they are, positional factors, etc. etc. etc. I find it much easier to rank pitchers than hitters. There are just a lot more variables with the hitters, even though the stereotype is that pitchers are more difficult to project.

Forward march!
