Re: When will main draw came out ?
Grok is one of those wonderful American words that means basically can you possibly twist your mind around this. It means basically understand, but is applied to things that are basically weird & defy what we commonly call "rational understanding" - that's why it seemed oh so appropriate for Wimby seeding, or rigged American elections...
Graven - carved in stone, meaning is it fixed by formula, or do they get together & do what seems to make sense/set up the best final (in which case they'd seed Blake #2), rationalizing it after the fact.
If Blake is seeded #5-8, and ends up playing RF in quarters - should RF even last that long this yr. - they'll regret it. Hence from their point of view it makes sense to seed him #2, esp. if Nalby w/draws, or certainly no lower than #4. But since he was out last yr, a rigid formula may not allow it, and may overseed AR. This has moved me from the Rigid Formula is Fair Camp, to it makes no sense since there are too many extenuating circumstances.
