    Mike thanks for the edit.

    The part about the former MVP, the DPOY, the scoring champ and Naismith winner all being the first since the Wizards since "because...Michael Jordan" was a tongue in cheek joke. Jordan did all four of those things (only one to do so).

    Just to clarify the 100 PA for catchers vs. qualified for others players. Only 10 total catchers (5 AL, 5 NL) have qualified for the batting title, so I lowered the requirements for their stat comparisons.

    Thanks for the edits Mike. Good point about Tampa Bay's QB situation this year...I was just thinking long term but should have made that clear. Appreciate it.

    Hey Mike, thanks for all the recent edits. Just a quick question about bylines on slideshows—I usually put them on the first slide, but I've been told by other copy editors that I should move them to the last slide. Is there a definitive protocol for this, or should I just have it somewhere in the slideshow?

    Thanks so much for the edits, Mike. I knew all of that but guess I just overlooked where some of the original sources were. I will take all of this into account moving forward.
