To answer a question raised, it took me 93 tries, 65 tries, 30 tries, 62 tries, 83 tries, and 64 tries with a random number generator to get all eight teams a championship. So on average, 66 years.

I wrote some (simple) Python code to generate a random number from 0 to 29 and stop after all the numbers from 0 to 7 have been generated. (Each random number generated represents a season.) Then I put this is a loop and did it 10,000 times. I ran this several times, and every time I got a mean of 80, 81 or 82 (but almost always 82). I'll bet the average is closer to 82 than 66.

I'm surprised and disappointed at the answers to the kickstarter question. Kickstarting a campaign for improved analytics is at best frosting on a cake that is already being eaten. By FAR the most value from a kickstarter campaign would be education, education, education, at the absolute grass-roots level. If every Little League outfit, particularly those serving communities where there is currently little organized ball, had a paid "club pro" equivalent to what golf has, you'd be amazed at the surge in both interest and talent level of incoming players. I could really get behind a kickstarter like that.
