OPS Reflected Rankings...

Postby BronXBombers51 » Mon Feb 13, 2006 9:38 pm

I recently found out that my league will incorporate OPS as a 6th stat this year. I already have my rankings, but obviously need to make changes now that this is being included. What lesser-known players may move up the charts because of a good OPS, and what well-known players will move down the charts because of a lower OPS?

Jose Reyes is a guy I noticed right away. His .686 OPS isn't very impressive and makes me want to slide him down a bit. Any other examples of this, or of guys who should move up?

Man, always gotta be ragging on a Met.

LOL...i'd just find a ranking where you can sort OPS vs. AB's and find the worst....then drop those players down a few...and vise versa.

OPS included in the cats changes everything and you should generate new lists.

If Bonds is back he is a MONSTER in a league like this. Could be the #1 player with if he gets 350 ABs.

This is great. My league also has this as a 6th category and I agree, it gets overlooked quite alot.

I sorted 2005's stats by OPS and here are a some players who are high in OPS that may be affected in rankings:

Hafner, Travis 1.003
Delgado, Carlos .981
Helton, Todd .979
Giambi, Jason .975
Jones, Chipper .968
Ensberg, Morgan .945
Berkman, Lance .934
Dunn, Adam .927
Tracy, Chad .911
Sexson, Richie .910
Konerko, Paul .909
Giles, Brian .905
Roberts, Brian .903
Jenkins, Geoff .888
Glaus, Troy .885


Some low OPS players to consider:

Chavez, Eric .794
Suzuki, Ichiro .786
Mauer, Joe .783
Wells, Vernon .783
Burnitz, Jeromy .757
Blalock, Hank .749
Huff, Aubrey .749
Reyes, Jose .687

Here's a link that someone posted in a thread a while back that I added to my favorites you can choose the scoring categories for pitchers and hitters then it calculates their values accordingly. It only sorts using last year's stats and not projections for this year, but it's still valuable to see how OPS could alter a player's value.

That is really funny. I'm targeting Chavez, Blalock, Wells and Huff. :-D

in general, the speedsters' values go down because they don't slug enough to have an OPS .800, while the sluggers' values go up, especially if they are also good at taking walks (sexson vs. tejada). of course, there are exceptions like ichiro whose career OPS is .800+ even though he doesn't slug or walk, simply due to his incredible batting average. and there's sluggers like vlad and mcab who have .900+ OPS even though they avoid walks like the plague, simply because they slug and hit so well. but in general, walks will give you a good idea of who'll have high OPS and who won't.

some players i think no one mentioned yet:

low OPS - crawford (he's improving though, so he could break .800 this year again like he did last year, which is pretty good for a speedster), andruw jones (.800 something OPS for a slugger is pretty mediocre), tejada, figgins/rollins/furcal/blahblah, eric chavez, blalock, garret anderson, soriano, morneau, cantu

good OPS - edmonds, nick johnson, berkman, vlad (exception to the walks rule), abreu

that's all i can think of off the top of my head. good luck.
