If we are to eliminate every pin that sits right next to a perfect cam placement we'll be eliminating a lot of pins. I'm sure this is what you think is right and true, Rich, but I'm just mentioning it to make the point that the traditional Roseland and MF pins, as unneccesary as they may be, are hardly exceptions.

The pin on the first pitch of MF is right next to a great spot for an Alien. No excuse for that one either.

Pins low on Birdland, same story...

Pin at the crux on the second pitch of Morning After...

Pin on Apoplexy...

I'm sure I could think of a zillion others, this is just off the top of my head.
