O-Rank stands for overall rank. It is based on the last 3 years totals. R=Rank and stands for the current year only.

On a side note, anyone know what the 'O' stands for in O-Rank? This has bugged me for some time...

Mo is Mariano Rivera, by the way...


Off-season? Original? Orly?


I asked Funston, and he told me the correct answer was.....................

Ah, the dreaded O-face category. Hard to draft for that. :-D

I'm guessing that Derek Jeter and Elijah Dukes are top scorers in this category. I don't know, I don't have either of them. :-S

there are a few places that update RP rankings...

ESPN (Karabell) updated his on Wednesday: http://sports.espn.go.com/fantasy/baseb ... e=re090422

Here is Rotoworld's updated tiered ranking from Wednesday: http://www.rotoworld.com/content/featur ... leid=32569

A google search could get you more.

thanks, here's the top for rp from roto

Jonathan Papelbon, Boston Red Sox
Mariano Rivera, New York Yankees
Joe Nathan, Minnesota Twins
Joakim Soria, Kansas City Royals

according to this, landing a RP from this tier--it doesnt matter who they're just all the same basically?
as in if the rp pick lies in your hands and pap is already taken, mo, nathan and soria are pretty much tossups?

edit: ranks i can find, but tiers are harder to come by as far as being updated. roto only has the rp tiers, and google brings a bunch of lists that havent been updated for long periods of time

i don't think you need any more info. just look at pitchers stats, look at some rankings. look at past year's save totals. etc etc. you'll be fine.

Keep in mind that the yahoo o-rank system is pretty terrible, they seem to way overvalue small samples of good AVG and they place way too much value in ERA/WHIP and SB.
