For his relentless efforts, time, hard work and dedication in making this league way more interesting than just staring at a leader board. My summer has been non stop crazy busy at work and my teams have slightly suffered and I have not taken the time to even acknowledge VinWins. I thought it sucked every time I saw one of his weekly write-ups on the front page with just a couple of comments like "should I pick up A for B?". The only feedback seems to come from the top 10 or so teams. I think we all owe Vin a big THANK YOU for providing us with great statistical insight into our league and I hope to see you continue this endeavor next season. THANKS VIN !!

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Here here!

Alas, my name never showed up in any update, but I loved seeing the stats. Fantastic work.

Thanks, guys! Nice to hear. I understand people come to Razzball to get Grey' great advice, so I was not surprised by the lack of comments. There are many more deserving posts from under-appreciated writers that don't get enough recognition.

I'm certainly hoping to do it again next year. Hopefully when draft time comes around I will be able to resist drafting the ridiculous number of teams I did this year so I can cut down on the hours devoted to fantasy baseball.

Also, Jesus Montero and Carlos Pena hit home runs for Freak Films tonight.

No need for humility. I might even name my team after you next year. (I'm fixed, else you mighta gotten my 3rd born too).

Anyway, it's been a great season (so far), and that much better because of your contributions. Baseball, of course, is a stats game, and the reports and compilations you've given us have just been fuckin' awesome.

So yeah, thanks. A lot.

I agree. VinWins work is very much appreciated in these quarters. As a numbers guy myself, love the constant flow of stats.

Ha, I enjoy the pity update, but it's not necessary. Maybe next year I'll draft a better team and deserve to be mentioned.

Ha! Sure, and then after a couple of bad weeks, you'll change it to Vin's Curse.
