Tinkering with baseball scripts…

Today, I realized that I had written some scripts to dig out information on the web and present it to me in a nice, concise format a couple of years ago, but that they had not been updated. I tinkered them back into fighting form, and then worked on a new one: one that would scrape all the standings information for the major leagues.

And… here’s what the results look like. Not bad.
