Pokey's Catcher rankings/projections/ratings

Postby Pokey » Sun Dec 25, 2005 4:03 pm

Here are my top 25 catchers. Next to each player I've included my projections (AVG/HR/RBI/R/SB) and two other numbers, the first italicized number is their fantasy rating in my system (which values stolen bases higher than others). The second, bold number, is the number I used to rank them, which is their VORFP, Value Over Replacement Fantasy Player, which takes into account the value they provide you in each category over the average player at their position. This is why I've rated Mauer higher than V-Mart. Why Martinez has a higher fantasy rating, Mauer has a higher value over the replacement catcher because alot of his value comes from stolen bases, a category you can't get much value from in any other catcher.

The projections are based on a couple of things: three-year averages, the career paths of similar players at the same age, and, of course, a little bit of my opinion. Here's the list:

1.) Joe Mauer .296/9/52/65/15/ 246.12/ 67.97

2.) Victor Martinez .286/22/81/71/0/ 255.70/ 62.71

3.) Benjie Molina .296/18/75/50/0/ 233.14/ 52.51

4.) Jason Varitek .284/20/69/65/1/ 233.54/ 50.89

5.) Ivan Rodriguez .285/13/44/73/5/ 206.14/ 39.76

6.) Ramon Hernandez .289/17/66/44/1/ 210.81/ 39.09

7.) Kenji Johjima .283/13/60/61/3/ 203.45/ 34.91

8.) Michael Barrett .288/14/70/48/0/ 202.70/ 33.29

9.) AJ Piernzynski .277/18/53/63/0/ 196.20/ 28.98

10.) Rod Barajas .265/20/63/50/0/ 173.96/ 19.85

11.) Jorge Posada .257/17/67/65/1/ 171.68/ 16.97

12.) Jason Kendall .274/1/62/73/5/ 166.05/ 13.31

13.) Mike Piazza .253/23/62/48/0/ 153.20/ 12.46

14.) John Buck .260/15/64/45/2/ 155.23/ 8.11

15.) Brian McCann .278/12/42/41/2/ 138.18/ 7.99

16.) Yadier Molina .274/12/51/40/2/ 160.67/ 7.78

17.) Paul LoDuca .265/5/66/52/6/ 147.61/ 7.26

18.) Toby Hall .293/6/47/27/0/ 135.35/ 2.11

19.) Gregg Zaun .251/8/55/78/2/ 129.60/ -4.29

20.) Mike Lieberthal .266/11/46/44/0/ 136.64/ -7.78

21.) Brad Ausmus .273/4/50/37/3/ 126.12/ -8.48

22.) Jason LaRue .262/12/52/38/0/ 130.35/ -9.65

23.) Javy Lopez .263/12/42/41/0/ 126.18/ -12.01

24.) Damian Miller .264/8/42/53/0/ 123.16/ -13.61

25.) Dioner Navarro .273/7/31/43/1/ 121.11/ -13.76

Javy put up a line of .278/15/49/47/0 in about 400 at bats. That's a pretty big decline from the .316/23/83/83 he put up a year ago (and his monster season before that.) In a 35 year old catcher, I expect that decline to continue.

It's the average of all the catchers I did projections for, so basically the starters, players that actually have a chance at ending up on a fantasy team.
