Great read, Grant. I'd love to help a big casebreaker break cases, but I don't know any that live near me.
In terms of sorting, I made my own placemat in Excel that helps with the process. PM me your email address, and I'll shoot you a copy of what I did. It helps you sort by number, team name, or team city. All you need to do is print it out, tape it together, and have it laminated.
