BASEBALL: Progress At Last

Good news for those of you who have been waiting for more baseball content on the site: I've finally at long last finished entering all the 2006 Win Shares in my spreadsheets, so I'll be starting soon to roll out my analyses and conclusions from those numbers.

And I suffer for my art: to avoid disrupting the rolling spreadsheets, which are on Microsoft Works, I've put off buying a new PC until this year's Established Win Shares Levels analyses are completed; I've been worried that there may be difficulties in transferring the data to Excel, and I assume that any new PC I buy will have Excel rather than the archaic Works (I got my current PC in October 2000, and it runs on - hold on and cringe here - Microsoft Windows ME).

Crank, on baseball and law I thought this was an interesting development: .
Pinto's comment, "I find it quite distressing that the Chronicle reporters invoked Watergate in their pleas to be kept out of jail, yet were abetting a lawyer trying to commit fraud to free a client. That's a great reason to protect a source, so the source can commit a crime." is lightyears ahead of the blathering heard from the Daily New's finest.

abe, thanks for the tip, I hadn't seen that (and I usually get to Pinto's place every day). I'll have a post up later.

Windows ME -- ouch. You deserve a new computer after putting up with that turkey.

Looking forward to it. I'll be doing my first fantasy league this year, and the draft is upcoming. . .

Crank, my pleasure. Along the same lines, I'd like to note a local boy, Duke Lax player as a matter of fact:,0,1321246.story?coll=ny-main-bigpix

May he rest in peace
