Player Rank


Player Rank

So what is the deal with the player rank? How is it generated? Because it has Ryne Sandberg rated at 15? 15? Ummm what? How does that translate. Speed, power, elite glove… 15? And Johnny Bench is a 12???? Color me confused.

Re: Player Rank

Player rank by position is determined by Avg, OBP and OPS. You will want to look closely at a variety of things on position players. Rank should not be the only thing you look at. HR/AB ratio is important as well as dwar and fielding%

Re: Player Rank

Rank is only a guide as to who might be the better performing players in the league. I would recommend checking League History on the individual players to see how they are performing in that particular league.

Also, Pennant Chase looks at individual seasons, not the longevity or total stats of their career. Some no name players had one outstanding season during their career and they outperform hall of famers who had good seasons every year, but never one outstanding season.

Make sure you read the frequently asked questions page as well.

Re: Player Rank

It’s relative to the player pool of the league they are in. also it’s based on the stat line they’re using for example 1990 sanberg is better than 1996. This site has you choose an individual year of the player and based on that performance it sims.

But yes rank for offensive sims is determined by average obp and ops if you look at an individual player’s player card by clicking their name it’ll tell you what their ranks are for those 3 stats along with what their overall rank is. It’s not by career stats. Just a single season which you can change if you want. Defense and speed are separate from rank.

So yes in the grand scheme of things bench and sand berg offensively are below 20 rank because their best offensive season hover slightly above .310 average and .900 ops so compared to all of the other all time great offensive seasons, that isn’t impressive

Rank isn’t perfect however, someone can have low avg, medium obp, and very high slugging and end up with pretty good ops rank but their overall rank won’t be that high, like a Joey gallo type
