I know that their system is terrible, but I don't know how it actually works.

It doesn't account for positional scarcity, but other than that it's solid. What's your beef?

Just wanted to prod Jake again and see if he could look into the Y! "rank formula" for pitchers. It might be neat to plug the formulas into projection systems and see the resulting ranks.

No, it's systematic. Funston sucks.
