Diamond Mind Playing Time Tool

I tend to find generated backup playing time one of the annoying things about making manager profiles in Diamond Mind, so here’s a little spreadsheet I like to use that generates quick preliminary playing time percentages by looking at entered games played and handedness of the starters and divides the remaining playing time of the backups from their handedness (or battedness as I guess is more apt), their RC/27, and their defensive ratings at the positions in question.  Obviously, one can ignore what the spreadsheet says in specific instances, but I find this useful.  One thing to note is that the spreadsheet will give a few starts to backups of players that you put in for 162 games - it’s expecting that a few games won’t necessarily be as a starter.

And yes, I know there’s nobody named Myers on the Diamondbacks - that’s just for testing.

Update: A new version's been uploaded as Derek Snyder helpfully fixed the bugs that I left in.

Oh, this is of no use to me as a non-DMB player. But it's still cool, anyway.

This is a great tool, Dan. Hopefully someone will say something about it over on the DMB Forums.
