I'm rating them based on their performance versus my expectations. Staal did a very, very solid job for us as always. But for me to give him an A or A+, he would have had to greatly exceed my expectations; he did not.

So when I give Sauer and A+ and Staal a B+, it doesn't mean that I think Sauer was better than Staal...just that he exceeded my wildest expectations, whereas I was more "very satisfied" with Staal.


It's just pain.
