i just read this over at CBS and i was wondering if anyone employes such a method when ranking their players

H.: A better way of comparing players of differing abilities is to rank each of the scoring categories as a percentage against the projected league leader. If the projected league leader is to hit 50 home runs, then a player with a projection of 49 would be worth 98 percent of the top value. The same with stolen bases. Doing this for all five categories and averaging the results gives a much better picture of a players overall value. There is an additional calculation that must be made for average before averaging the percentages of all five categories and that is the ratio of at-bats a player has against the roster average. In many cases, a player with a high batting average but fewer at-bats has less impact in raising the team average then a player with a slightly lower average but more at-bats. I have used this method for many years and it has worked extremely well for coming out of a draft with an overall balanced team.

pros/cons to this? it sounds pretty good to me if your projections are decent
