What I have envisioned in my head that would seem to be effective, but that I have yet to figure out how to exactly calculate is to assign an equal max value (say, 1) to each of the five offensive categories and assign a decimal to each player based on projections. Then just sum them all up. So a player who is projected to hit .370 60 HR 150 RBI 150 Runs 75 SB is a perfect 5.0, with 0 SB but all the rest is a 4.0, etc.

Basically, having stats above the mean would provide a positive impact and stats below the mean would have a negative impact on the overall sum rating. A player who is projected to hit .370 60 HR 150 RBI 150 Runs 75 SB is a perfect 5.0, but the same player with 0 SB would then be less than a 4.0.
