Thanks for Running Doubt Wars. I tracked my own team all season every month or so, but didn't track the others nor Tout. It was interesting to see it play out.

I put together a $175 offense (really $161 b/c everyone was $1 more than Tout) and yielded $200 in value based upon last year's formulas on this site. Biggest profits were Michael Brantley +9, Wil Myers +8, Torii Hunter +7, Manny Machado, JJ Hardy, and Omar Infante +5. Biggest loses were Jeff Francoeur -9, Mark Trumbo -4, Ichiro and Viciedo -3.

Pitching was $82 (really $73) turned in a $84 value. Biggest profits Chris Tillman +9, David Robertson +6, Joel Peralta +5. Biggest loses Jered Weaver -12 (should have gone with Darvish), Tommy Hanson and King Felix -5,

I can't say that Trumbo and Felix were negative despite the prices.

I've been in a constant churn of work since the start of the season, and it's slow going because names aren't uniform, so there's lots of individual checking as I enter teams. But I'm hoping to have the first update next weekend, at the halfway mark. I'm sorry for the delay.

Any updates on the standings or do we just run them at the end

Where is the standings for these leagues located?

Three winners.

Is there going to be a winner for each of the 3 or just 1 overall winner for the individual league highest point total?

I think it will be interesting, at the end, whether the team that wins Tout Wars will correlate in any way with picking the most players rostered by top Doubt Wars teams. And vice versa.

I'm also curious, how the category spread may differ since the player pool is not exclusive in Doubt Wars. But I don't know that we will be able to see that.

These are the first two points of interest for me.

I'm compiling. The problem with not having automated this beforehand is that it, er, isn't automated. Lots of fixing to do before we get decent data.

My primary interest is scouting my fellow PCL managers entries :-)

Have to admit - my primary interest here (and the reason that I haven't posted my own) is the collective wisdom of the group, and not individual data points.

Any chance of just running a tally of which players were picked in each entry set (my own primary interest is NL only auction)?
