Progressions

Someone needs to explain progressions. I’m in the league where is second and third round draft pick in the minors , both 23, now have a 100 and 95 rank..And not on all teams.

Re: Progressions

Players progress from any age until 28 , stay the same and start to regress at 32 , usually Some leagues are different but that's the most common. Judging from your ? I figured you were a new player but you are almost a 20,000 plus game player and still dont get it ? wow, I know there is no such thing as a dumb question but 20 k plus and you still dont get progressions ?

Your missing the point genius. How does two specific players progress so much from one team different than every other player and how they progress. Thanks for stopping in though

Re: Progressions

Well I found the league and see why the two players (Braves) are ranked 95 and 100. Because they’ve got great stats. They progressed about as much as other players progressed - no big surprise there. So maybe the bigger question is why they were chosen in the 2nd and 3rd rounds of a draft when their stats and rankings are so good. I can’t answer that for you. Did no other owners want players who were that good? It’s a contract league too, which I don’t have any experience in, so maybe their contracts have something to do with why they dropped to the 2nd and 3rd rounds? Don’t know.

The thing about them still being in the minors, that doesn’t have anything at all to do with progressions. I’m sure the owner will promote them to the majors with stats like that.

Re: Re: Progressions

Is it double progression for minor leagues? Are they S rated? How old were they drafted and how many progressions have they had? So many factors here that could account for that.

Re: Progressions

Yes they are both S rated, so they do progress differently.

Re: Re: Progressions

I think your point is that those guys are overpowered for being 2nd and 3rd round picks. I don't disagree with that. Just a few notes of interest:

1) There are lots of guys with video game stats in that league (almost 100 starting pitchers with WHIPs under 1.00, 13 players with .700+ slug%!)

2) It looks like they were drafted at least a season or two ago - so there's now way to tell what the draft class looked like. Or how many teams participated in the draft

3) Those players have low at bats, low innings pitched, young ages, and S(uperstar) progression ratings. So they're gonna get a whole lot better. Players with low at bats progress much faster because 3 at bats, 3 hits, 3 doubles, 1 triple, and 4 hrs added to a player with 283 at bats affects their OPS much more (+.082 points) then a player with 600 at bats. Same goes for pitchers - a starter with 100 innings is going to progress faster than a starter with 200 or 300 innings.

It looks like that league has a lot of highly ranked players - the top 100 hitters are ranked 88 to 100. Culling some of the free agents can even out the rankings a bit. When everyone is highly ranked, you have to figure out other differentiators (ahem Dwar). And it takes some planning to keep progression leagues from getting out of control with crazy numbers.
