The daily grind: mid-season reviewPosted by Brad Johnson at 3:07am
The All-Star break offers a nice opportunity to reflect on the first half and make changes. Let's cover anything and everything worth discussing over the next few days.
I think the general format thus far has been satisfactory, but often leaves much to be desired. I plan to turn my daily hitter recommendations into a more detailed grid. Pitcher recommendations will remain the same since only a few are made per day.
While it would be awesome to add tons of content, I have only 30-40 minutes to write this column each morning. It will be interesting to see if maintaining the hitter grid gives me more or less time to work with. If I were to drop a section, should it be "Reliever Watch" or "Yesterday's Results?"
One major change I plan to implement is to cut the content from today and tomorrow to only tomorrow. If you are in a same-day transaction league, simply reference the column from the previous day.
Below I have included a sample of the hitting grid with only AL East teams. What do you think? I will probably also add a column for opposing pitcher, but that might be too much to update on a daily basis.
|Team||Player||Ownership||Match-up quality||Playing Odds||Recommend (Y/N)|
If this change proves too difficult to maintain, I will revert to the previous format.
Good luck down the stretch.
