BBM Stat Pool Calculator
Remaining stat pools can be tricky when determining who’s got the best pool, with errors and base on balls, stolen bases, etc., it’s sometimes tough to figure. Here’s a stat pool calculator I created which allows you to select the remaining stat pool option and then just copy and paste the whole thing into this spreadsheet. It calculates all categories and provides the amount of BBM runs per plate appearance each of your players produce. You’d be amazed how much those errors and GDP’s can cost you. Check it out and you see the best OPS isn’t always the best pool to use. Currently this calculator is set up to use with the old BBM site. I’ll update it to use with the new site soon.
Pinetar Dues explained!
Managers who enroll in Progression leagues pay their dues as part of the enrollment process. BBM charges an extra $10 for Progression leagues, so you’ll be good for dues.
If you’re a manager who plays in a Keeper League within Pinetar then you do have to pay $10 annual separately.
Dues may be paid using https://paypal.com. Use firstname.lastname@example.org as the address to send your $10 too. If you need to send a check instead then email me using the questions link above and I’ll send you the address.
What do the dues cover?
Pinetar has a few contests during the season, like March Madness, the Preseason MLB prediction contest and a few Power Ranking awards. We have a small amount of web site fees as well. The huge chuck of all dues is used to buy the league winner trophies and the annual awards trophies for Manager of the Year and Rookie of the Year, etc. If you’ve never seen a Pinetar trophy, believe me when I say they aren’t pieces of junk. They are custom engraved works of art, suitable for display in any environment, including the office.
