How do you figure?
their are countless examples but for starters - tell me why santana is the only pitcher who you can justify taking in the first round
if the pitcher production is equal to that of the hitters why is their such an imbalance at the beginning of a draft?
I'm not purposefully skewing anything, my current system values the hitters more than it should, but yours devalues them...to say their end of season production should equal that of the pitchers goes against every ranking system out there. Based on top rankings, mock drafts, the upper echelon pitchers (top 10-12 say) are amongst the top 50 or 60 players drafted. thats a 1 to 5 1 to 6 ratio...your format values it at 1 to 1
