This week in the podcast:
This week is our last podcast for the 2014 season, and we go out with a bang. We’ve got the co-owner and co-founder of Scoresheet, Jeff Barton, along for an interview. We cover all topics Scoresheet, including Jeff’s personal history, his preferences, his advice on strategy, his thoughts on the mistakes beginners and seasoned veterans make, and what makes Scoresheet so much fun. We wanted to thank Jeff for coming on the podcast and helping us close out our first season on a high note.
We do plan to return when off season action heats up, probably around the end of the calendar year. We’ll try to cover the mock draft as it happens and also start 2015 with the same kind of positional previews and predictions as we did in 2014.
What feedback do you have for us? Please drop us a line in the comments or send us an email and let us know what we should keep doing, what we should stop doing, and what we should start doing in 2015.
Thanks for all your support!

Re: Jeff enjoying line-up changes more than drafts. I'm one of those folks, too, at least, I used to be, although, I really do enjoy the web drafts in the one league that's been together for ages and we kibbitz and critique as it goes. One of the main reasons I started playing Scoresheet is that I was always revising in my head (and on pieces of paper) just what the ideal Tigers or Blue Jays line-up should be. It was frustrating being at the complete mercy of Sparky Anderson and Cito Gaston, who could be a bit old fashioned (or let's say "boring") in their line-up strategies. Scoresheet gives us the power to do things the way we think they should be done. (Besides that, line-up making is a fun little mathematical puzzle - even if we know one line-up or another doesn't make a big difference.)
Have a nice winter, guys.
