#65 - How much disadvantage for a serve picker in Post 1?

Interesting thing about Post 1. They're the only team that serves their first time up, all the others receive. This allows for some interesting analysis of players' and teams' relative serving advantages.

Let's suppose you have a notorious serve picker (Inclan, maybe?) up front in Post 1. One of his main weapons has been neutralized. In any of the other posts, he'd be receiving the first time.

How big an effect does this have, in your opinion?
