    can the initials in branch 1 be used either way? for example I have
    A.N. after an initial look at rosters I cannot find an A.N. can I use N.A.?

    I actually only found players for 3 of my 6 sets of initials

    Expanding on that question, what about players who go by two initials as a first name, such as J.D. Martinez? Does he count for J.M. and/or D.M. or strictly only J.M.?

    2019 Lumberjack Bingo: Regular Season

    So in the Cloud 9 game: it seems I never had a chance to win since I was stuck with Kyle Seager, who started the season on the DL after having hand surgery in mid-March.

    The initials can only be used in the order shown.

    When building branch 1, I used last year's hit/strikeout leaders. Over 100 different sets of initials are included in the game. If you look at the 2018 leaders in these categories, that should help you identify some players.

    @game****fanatic has the right idea (Aaron Nola)

    @Letch77

    Players who go by initials for their first name only use the first letter in branch 1.

    So, for your J.D. Martinez example, you'd go with J.M.

    For Cloud 9, Seager would not have factored in your total since he was injured. I know I said that all players must play, but I was referring to all active players.

    Don't worry about missing out on Cloud 9. Since it was claimed so early in the season, I "may" re-open it again at some point.

    One thing that helps me check "quickly" for branch 1 is doing the following:
    1. Go to each box score and look at the Hits column to identify any player having 3+ Hits
    2. When found, hope for an initial match...I have found this the quickest way to see across the league games in respects to the initials on Branch 1
    3. Do the same but for the pitcher's Strikeout column

    It sounds and seems a bit articulate, but muscle memory really comes into play when you find the right rhythm.

    Awesome! You are on Branch 2 as of April 1st.

    The others still need to clear the branch before moving on to Branch 2 (meet conditions or one of the three chainsaw options).

    Thanks for the tip, Alex!

    To make things even easier, I added a daily hit leaders link in the Tools of the Trade section in the OP.

    The Lights Out link can be used for daily strikeout leaders.

    You'll also find the current branch everyone is on along with a list of bounty winners in the OP.
