  1. Jim,
    Just to let you know someone reads and appreciates this — it's Jeremy, not Jason Hellickson. ERA leader.

  2. Glad you enjoys the recaps. Kinda sums up the whole week in one quick digest.

    Fixed the typo, missed it when I looked it over. Thanks for the catch.

    If there is anything you would like to see added, let me know and I will see what I can do.

  3. A little cross-linking wouldn't hurt. For example, I'll be linking yours today. The other day I did a broader summary:

    That way folks get two different looks.
