BBR Rankings: 2009-12-18

Posted by Neil Paine on December 18, 2009

I have the day off today and we have the Inner-Circle players from the 50s and 60s coming up this afternoon, so these rankings are a little later than usual and without the usual write-up... Another administrative note: I will be publishing these rankings next week as well, on Christmas morning -- I wasn't kidding when I said every Friday from late November until the end of the season!

(Want to know how the BBR Rankings are calculated? Read this first. Also, mouse over column headers for descriptions.)
