    Congrats, GC. You're building a consistent winner over there.

    Re: 2005 Season Discussion

    So...Toggenburg pretty famous for both its tight competition for playoff spots as well as for the number of teams with a max stadium. Had worked out great for me initially with all my high BA low SL hitters.

    Here's how we stood through 4 seasons:
    YearHAT
    2001474592
    2002453984
    2003444084
    2004434285

    As you can see, home field was seeming to buy me a good 2-4 games a year in general. Definitely really helped in sneaking into the playoffs in 2003 and nearly sneaking into the playoffs in 2002/2004.

    Prior to 2005, though, I was eyeballing that narrow 1-point H vs A margin and the seeming trend towards less benefit from my max stadium. Would that slide continue? Should I instead go for a more neutral stadium. I strongly considered it, but ultimately eyeing my strong BA hitters, I figured the benefit was still there and kept the max stadium.

    Result: I won 50 away games in 2005...and 31 home games. Ouch!!

    Now, do I really think I was some 100-win team on a neutral site? No, clearly some random factor action here. But I sure seem to have crossed some critical threshold last year where the benefits to my BA hitters were well outweighed by the damage to my pitching staff, where my bullpen depth (lack thereof) got massively exposed.

    Suffice it to say, I just changed my home stadium to neutral dimensions.
