Re: ESPNs Top 100 players
Here is how they arrive at the ratings:
Players receive points for their major league rankings in the following disciplines:
• Batters: Batting bases accumulated, runs produced, OBP, BA, HRs, hits, runs, RBIs, net steals, difficulty of defensive position, and team win percentage.
• Starting pitchers: ERA compared to league average weighted by IP, wins weighted by win percentage, defensive independent bases allowed per IP (limiting HR, BB and HBP), strikeouts, opponents' BA, and innings pitched.
• Relievers: Wins and saves with a stiff penalty for blown saves, ERA compared to league average weighted by IP, K-BB ratio, opponents' BA, and preventing inherited runners from scoring.
Batters MLB ranks in:
Batting bases accumulated 20%
Runs produced 15%
Net steals 5%
Team win percentage, defensive position 5% each
The offensive player ratings seem to me to rely too heavily on counting stats but what do you guys think?
