I was doing totals for a game in my personal project (scoring all the games in Target Field's inaugural season) and came up with another suggestion. On the pitcher lines swapping the K and BB columns. I noticed that everywhere I get totals from (pbp, boxes, press box, tv, etc) lists these in reverse of how the score sheets list them.
As with my previous suggestions, these are more of a convenience than anything else. I just notice where most of my errors are and then think of potential solutions that can allow me to remain on auto-pilot between batters/innings.
Regardless, I love the product!

Good point. Most line score and stat sources (including ESPN and Baseball-Reference.com) list BB left of K, so it seems like a good idea to follow suit. I'll try to make this revision for 2011.
If anyone else agrees or disagrees, please let me know. Thanks!
Your system is one of the few variations that genuinely takes a different approach to the traditional method and I've really enjoyed using it ever since having it recommended to me prior to the 2008 season.
