The slotting system IS a big win for the smaller markets, because the temporary market inefficiency we exploited was starting to close up on us even as recently as last year.
Just seems so strange that we've been benefiting greatly since '08 (Hosmer draft, which I've previously misidentified as '09) and we were just starting to see some semblance of recognition by larger markets.
I think we still had several years, at least, of distinct advantage.
