With today’s health report came a flood of email. One of the best things about Unfiltered is the ability to fire out one response to what was more than 200 emails asking similar questions so —
1. “Why is _____ not listed?” There are two possible explanations. First, the player might be green. If he’s green and I don’t have a specific comment about him, I don’t list him. It saves me keystrokes and keeps my wrists off the DL. Second, he might not have been considered the starter. A guy like Ryan Doumit or Adam Melhuse comes under this and will be considered for the “catch-up” column that we’ll do at the end.
2. “Why the colors?” They’re pretty. No, I’m not going to give out the percentages, the complete formula, and no, these aren’t negotiable. I hope everyone feels free to disagree, point out errors, and such, but you’re not going to get me to change a color just because it’s your team or your favorite player.
And for the third FAQ of the day, “no comment.” Those of you that have asked — and you are more than I expected — will understand.
