Help B-Ref find each player's Attractiveness Quotient

At the link, you can rate the attractiveness of current and past major league baseball players. Here is the current top-10 all-time: 1. Jeremy Guthrie (1756) 2. Jerry Denny (1754) 3. Will Clark (1754) 4. Greg Minton (1754) 5. Gus Mancuso (1753) 6. Jack Warner (1752) 7. Topper Rigney (1752) 8. Kent Tekulve (1752) 9. Jim Beattie (1752) 10. Ryan Howard (1751) (What? No Grady? For shame!) Here, B-Ref explains what they're doing. Attractive people have higher self-confidence due to their looks, therefore they perform better. They are gathering data in preparation to add this previously overlooked consideration to their projection system. So far, they have found that a player's OPS increases by one point for every 40 points of AQ (Attractiveness Quotient). You will be shown pictures of two players and asked to choose which of the two is more attractive. Have fun! If you want help, this link may assist you.

Cowboys' leaked draft board

This is apparently the Cowboys draft board, perhaps in the 4th round. It offers a look at one team's rankings. A couple interesting things: Colt McCoy was given a third-round grade, Carlton Mitchell was given a fourth-round grade. I haven't spotted Hardesty or Ward yet.

Who should go when Hafner returns?
