    Any chance you can link to the full season stats for each team? It’s cool to read about each day but I’m curious how players are doing in general. Thanks!

      Maybe I’ll start putting up the full season stat links every weekend. By the way, I am doing weekly minor league updates with season stats for all the top players every Monday on Athletics Nation… http://www.athleticsnation.com/
