    THIS POST ORIGINATED WITH METSGUY234 IN THE SPORTS TALK FORUM

    metsguy234;1407921]Nice article by Jason Fry

    http://sportsjournalism.org/sports-m...he-game-story/

    Also they make reference to a really interesting sounding program called Stats Monkey near the end of the article, which you can read more on (including a sample article produced by Stats Monkey) here:

    "Whate'er should be our Zodiac's star
    We all are born to make or mar.
    To each is gi'en a bag of tools
    Some mentors, and a set of rules:
    And each must carve, ere life has flown,
    A stumbling block, or a stepping-stone"

    Re: The Dugout: Dynasty Tips and Tricks

    I've just posted an article from the online N.Y. Times on one of my Canadian players, in the Canajun Ehs thread
    .in fact, such a practice - that of googling for bios of one's players, and posting them in one's dynasty thread (especially those dynasties that operate in modern times) - might serve to perk up the dynasties of other Members in this forum

    Re: The Dugout: Dynasty Tips and Tricks

    I've seen this on a few different dynasties, but for those that have them, I would suggest removing the opening post that lists year by year spoilers. While it's true that, as Nabokov writes in the opening section of Laughter in the Dark, "This is the whole of the story and we might have left it at that had there not been profit and pleasure in the telling", the antecedent paragraph (the first in the novel, incidentally), still invokes a sense of mystery. The spoiler post, in my opinion, removes all mystery from the equation, or, at the very least, diminishes it so greatly that I personally lose all interest in reading.
