The reason for the flurry of Statis-Pro card updates is that I plan to make use of my first true vacation in a few years - with no cell coverage in the mountains - as a chance to catch-up with the AL Statis-Pro cards. The Montana Commissioner is playing off the AL with these cards, but we like to play a little interleague so we catch up on who is on which AL team this year, and if they are having a good or bad year (based on card adjustments in a recent blog).
This does create our one "unbalanced" part of the season. The other 14 series we have scheduled has each of our 11 NL qualifiers playing the other 14 NL teams each in a series. Therefore our season is actually much more balanced than the MLB season, where teams must play more games in their division due to travel consideration (no travel issues in pulling the Statis-Pro cards out of my desk).
