Average 6 games a week for 25 weeks...plus All-Star week.
If I did the weeks right, there are still 26 weeks (averaging 6-7 games, like Zeke says, except the 3-game ASB week, which we always have), so at the least, 25*6+3 = 153 (which equals = 1^3+ 5^3 +3^3, which leads to this news update).

Perhaps there is more pressure not to miss a week or be late in a week, I guess. But I think we did just fine last year... as the min games played by those who played all season was 156 (max was 167), and the top 2 had 158 (Zeke) and 160 (yt).

I don't recall if it was a hassle to plan/pick, but I know in 2011-2012 we ran Friday-Thursday "weeks" since the season ended on a Wednesday not a Sunday (so it made some sense to alter the weeks)?

MLB Games start tomorrow, but I think I'll set let this start Monday.

I wasn't suggesting changing the format, I guess I was just thinking 145 games might be appropriate but if you think everyone will get to 150 no worries.

I do not see any repeat picks, but I do not know if it's a winning set.

Ok, understood. Maybe this will also keep people from considering not playing the first half of a week or skipping the final week if in a winning position
