Avg. Player Rankings

Postby pgbridge2000 » Wed Mar 22, 2006 11:24 pm

Just a small suggestion that I remembered. I don't know if this is currently done but when averaging the 9 expert rankings I would suggest taking the Hi/Lo score instead of the standard avg. (to those who don't know Hi/Lo score is just the avg. with the high score and the low score eliminated as is used in some competitive sports like figure skating) This year the rank by each person wasn't shown but I remember from last year when it was that certain players (especially ones being ranked at there non-standard position) were de-valued because they weren't ranked by 1 person who may have overlooked them for that position. Using Hi/Lo would eliminate this possible skew and therefore give a better representation fo the player's true rank.

Well, I think you could go either way here. With nine rankers, the results are already fairly stable. In any case, Lofunzo did make sure that no players were omitted from the rankings due to multiple positional eligibility. :-)

Agreed, and Lo did do a good job making sure no one was left off. I didn't realize Utley had 1B eligibility at Yahoo, but Lo made sure I didn't leave him off. ;-D

Yep, same thing happened with me and Utley. I think they should be pretty solid. Lo did a good job compiling them. ;-D

Where did who go?

EDIT: I see it now, you stuck it in the title where it's not normally looked at.

Here's the complete DH ranking:

1. Hafner
2. Frank Thomas

:-D

Can't rank him with First Basemen since he doesn't have 1B eligibility. He only qualifies as a utility hitter, and some leagues don't use utility hitters.

"A" is For Ankle, "B" is For Big Hurt

Postby jameeman » Fri Mar 31, 2006 3:11 pm

Ain't no way Frank Thomas and his balky ankle play in as many as 130 games this season.

Billy Beane may be a Baseball genius, he is not, however, a miracle worker.

He asked for a DH ranking. Who else falls into the "utility player only" catagory? Hafner/Thomas/and ???? :-D
