We're consistently getting 3/5. I'd like to know from those who are voting it as such what we can do to improve it. Writing a long intro and picking out certain players to elaborate on have garnered no response whatsoever, but we are always looking for more ideas to make the article more beneficial for the reader.

I just vote it down for the heck of it. :-B

EDIT: Alright, if I could be serious for a minute, try putting the rankings in a table perhaps (rank, player, comments) to give the rankings a cleaner look. You should also make a short comment on each player. You don't have to update the comments on every single player each week, just enough to give it a little more player insight. A little wrap-up before listing the rankings would be a nice touch; something like a stock watch highlighting which players are up and down, and why.

BTW, you and rooks ever thought of doing the Cafe's version of Funston's Big Board?

Go look in the Writers Room and you'll see that these are my exact same thoughts.

The reason the rankings are as shallow as they are is my idea. I actually had Funston's Big Board in mind. I like how there is movement on and off the board, which keeps readers interested and captivated throughout the season.

Good to see C. Pena and E. Jackson get some recognition on the rankings. :-)
