Elias Error - NL Starting Pitchers Update

I just spotted an error in the projected Elias Rankings. When updated the pitching statistics, there is an error in how the data is delimited when imported from Baseball Reference. Please disregard the pitching projections for now, as some players' win totals are incorrect.

Update: The error has been fixed, and the correct projected rankings are up. Before, any NL pitcher who won more than ten games in 2007 was having the first digit of their win total ignored. This error is fixed and does not appear to be anywhere else. This does dramatically affect the rankings, and that is shown on the page. CC Sabathia, Ben Sheets, Oliver Perez, and Derek Lowe are the Type A free agents now. Lowe is close to the A/B border. John Smoltz, Brad Penny, Kyle Lohse, Jamie Moyer, Randy Wolf, Greg Maddux, and Braden Looper are type B's with Randy Johnson just outside of the A/B border.

Please note that this program has not been completely debugged. If you see something completely out of whack, please bring it to my attention. I apologize for the error.
