I wonder if 5 year recalc gives them to you two years early? Not that I want to try it because I prefer 3 year recalc, double weighted for the current year. That puts 50% emphasis on the year in question and 25% each on the sandwiching years.

EDIT: This is not universal. Some players are debuting when they should.
Not a 3 year recalc thing. Happens using 1 year recalc as well. For example, Ken Griffey Jr. debuts at age 18. Boggs debuts at age 22.
