I sewed up a muslin of the Minoru--and I love it so much that I'm wearing the muslin around the house--but when I reach forward there is definite pulling at the shoulder blades.

According to FFRP, I should make a slash down the entire back piece (since its a raglan), which seems easy enoughis there a way to figure out how big of a slash to make or even just a starting point? I'd rather not make a whole nother muslin but there's no reason why I couldn't.

Also, I seem to be broad only in the upper back so I'm wondering if I really should slash the whole back piece or just cut and spread the top portion (truing the side seam)?

Doesn't FfRP show that when they cut the pattern, they inserted a piece in there to determine the amount? You do the same thing in a muslin. I don't think you need to make another one yet.

Try just the upper portion first. If that isn't enough, then go down further. Keep splitting (starting with small amounts) until it is comfortable.

Raglans are so much easier to adjust for the back than set-in sleeves.

I have not yet begun to procrastinate

Update: soon I will decide when I will begin procrastinating.
