Gameday - May 25, 2014

Nick has injured his knee, and is currently listed as Day-to-Day. For that reason, I’ll be posting the gameday today (May 25). Sorry it’s a little late, I had some stuff to tend to this morning so I didn't realize that Nick was out of the lineup. In an effort to streamline the timeline to putting this together, you won’t find the stat totals in the notes section, but all the data for the hitters, pitchers, and sleeper alerts will be updated. We’re about due for another season-long statistic update anyways, so that’ll be what fills you in for the next few days, so I’m not too worried about it today. I’ll be posting this and then updating the rest of the "necessary to research" numbers on the stats sheet, so it might not be 100% filled in when you see it. The formatting is definitely off, and I don't have time to figure out Nick's magic touch, but this rough one will have to do for now I guess...

From Nick: I mentioned this yesterday but I think it bears repeating, I have decided to add not one, not two, but THREE NEW SECTIONS of players that will be tracked daily and will be included in the weekly year-to-date update. They will be known as The Helium Tank, The Tempurpedic's and The Pot Luck. Break out prospects and those not on the current sleeper list will go in The Helium Tank. The Tempurpedic's are the deep sleepers that will be kicking off their seasons in the upcoming weeks for either a domestic or international short season league. The Pot Luck will be where the community as a whole will have the chance to add another 25 names to the pot (pun totally intended) in addition to the 50 players in The Helium Tank and The Tempurpedic's.

In the upcoming days I will post an article where the top 25 players, as chosen by the amount of rec's the post with the player's name receives, This will come after The Helium Tank and Tempurpedic's have been announced to prevent players from ending up in multiple sections. Voting will take place for roughly three days and at the end of it all we will have The Pot Luck. I think this will be a fun way of finding more players to track and hopefully pick up on a rising star.
