I think it doesn't matter too much for stolen bases cause erstad, wilkerson and lee are the only guys that are going to get you any points there anyways. Just rank 1B without SB included at all - and at the end go back and bump up those three a couple spots.....
I've been looking at VORP as the master for standard deviation - but now I'm curious since you use both - what is the difference between the two?
(what does VORP stand for?) value of relative position>?
welcome to the cafe. now if we can get JES and the rest over here.
VORP=value over replacement player
yeah, i thought about cutting it out completely, but it did have some importance for DLee since he's got power too. using .25 bumped Erstad out of draftable range and Lee looks about right between Huff and Bagwell.....
you add up the std.devs for each category to get a total for a player. the difference of that total vs. another player's total is a measure of VORP. people have other formulas too, but its all the same base concept.
