- Week 23 complete...again! - Game 138 re-posted -
- Next score update is expected Saturday
- Around BWB
- Schedule update - I spent a couple of days trying to automate my box score download process (currently do that by hand) to better handle the daily document dumps I'm getting from my stat provider that's causing some of the current problem. No luck on that yet, so I'll have to fix that another day.
- Current plans:
- Rerunning Game 138 - Hope to have this posted on Friday morning, 9/21
- Week 25 transaction results - Posted Friday night or Saturday morning
- Resume with Game 139 and beyond - Posted by Saturday night
- Quick update on the schedule:
- Last week my MLB stat database got a little screwed up. I have some safeguards and checks in place, but I missed the fact that I didn't have some stats loaded from 9/11. This is a result of some inconsistency in the data that I get - but also some mistakes on my part for getting corrected information loaded.
- For the most part, this isn't a problem - the games on 9/11 for the teams were in the 144-147 range - stuff that would show up in Week 24. However, I'm still missing some information for the Mets and Marlins - and both teams played their game #143 (translating to BWB game #138) on 9/11. As a result, their game information for 9/12 got mislabeled as game #143 and that's what ended up being used for BWB game #138.
- So - in the interest of getting this right, although it probably won't affect more than a few BWB outcomes, I'm going to rescore game #138.
- I do still need some additional time to clear up the MLB stats - yesterday my provider dropped another load of 500 box scores (a mix of the Saturday games plus corrections to their files - even small ones that don't factor into our game) and I need to still process those.
- At this point, we're not on any hard deadline - you've all submitted your Week 25 lineups - there are no transactions/lineups due until we're ready to start the playoffs - and that's usually in early October.
- Here's the tenative schedule:
- I hope to get all the MLB stats cleared up by Monday night
- Will re-run Game 138 by Tuesday night
- Will process the Week 25 submissions for cuts and lineup changes by Wednesday
- Move on with scoring games after that's all done.
- Thanks for your patience - I wanted to make sure that this got done correctly. Some of this is caused by my rush on some tasks so I'm going to be deliberative with getting this fixed.
