Rankings

Newbie with question on rankings. One example:
Sheffield has OPS of 1.093, 42 HR, 120 RBI
G. Vaughan has OPS of 0.963, 50 HR, 119 RBI
Sheffield has a poor dW of -2.38, Vaughn -0.55.

Sheffield has RK of 92 which seems right, but Vaughan is only 49. Why so low?

Another is J Bell with 38 HR, 0.936 OPS, 132 R (!), 112 RBI. RK is 56

Re: Rankings

Let us know which league this is. Rank is entirely dependent on who else is in the league. Someone’s stats can look great, but relative to everyone else in the league, they are “mediocre” for that player pool.

Re: Rankings

The power hitters with low AVG and especially OBP have low ranks. Dwar doesn’t factor into rank but definitely matters.

Re: Re: Rankings

This is Auto league 482 best of 1990s. Regardless of the reason, even if there's a glitch in some rankings, I have to say this really feels the void for me with no baseball or fantasy BB. Thank you

Re: Re: Rankings

YankeeBB, Thanks, I didn't ask, but had wondered whether the ranking takes into account dear.

Re: Rankings

No glitch, the rank number only considers AVG OBP OPS relative to the league and favors OBP so those low average power hitters rank lower, but are still valuable for driving in runs as expected.
