I am really really bad at keeping up with things like that, like "woops I forgot for two months" bad. Don't want to be the Miguel Cabrera of the league and constantly be unavailable

I may have told this story before, and it's not really relevant at all, but it's the off season so here goes. 

Many years ago, baseball reference listed Mo Vaughn as having played 1/3rd of an inning in center field in his MLB career. Some guys I played what if sports simleagues with found this and spent days trying to find video or documentation of this incredible historical event. Eventually having no luck, they contacted b-r who informed them it was an entry error and would be fixed. Mo Vaughn couldn't stick in center field, and if we'd been scouts we'd have known that. 

B-Ref is good at responding to those kinds of requests.  I once found a couple of players back in the 30s who had home runs but no RBI.  It turned out that the home runs were correct, but the RBI had not been recorded.

Well, we currently have two teams open that are being “managed” by caretaker managers, so that level of commitment would be an improvement over what we have for those teams. 

If you change your mind, let me know. Spring training starts Tuesday.
