So not sure what BR Fan EloRater is about but look at this:

#835. Matt Garza… #836. Jeff Nelson… #837. Lew Richie#838. DICK TIDROW… #839. Al Worthington… #840. Joe Magrane

So Matt Garza is Tidrowesque??

From BR explanation on the EloRater

The Elo rating system is a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in two-player games. The creator of the system, Arpad Elo, was a professor of physics at Marquette University who wanted an improved chess rating system. Although the system has its roots in chess, today it is used in many other games.



So in a chess match Garza would beat Tidrow? Nah we all know that Tidrow is the....

These kind of meta-rankings are always interesting, I like how this is essentially trying to put two players at the same position in a head to head deathmatch. I'm bored so I'm going to look further into this.... I need to know who is the last man standing.

Oh so much time wasting fun, you can actually vote on players the matchups are randomly but oh so fun to waste time playing.
So my first one is Edgar Martinez or Lou Brock

There were a couple of typos that I didn't catch the first time around. The edits should be approved sometime today.

A couple? Your game must be off. Isn't it only a line or too? Maybe you're editor should pore over it better.
