7/16/2019 Can anyone explain this??yankeebb
There is no way player B was ranked 50s, below player A, and is now ranked 99, ahead of player A. The order they were ranked wouldn’t change.

The players you mentioned:

1.40 WHIP 8.3H 5.4K 99 rank
1.41 WHIP 8.7H 4.0K 87 rank
1.42 WHIP 8.9H 6.0K 84 rank

And their rank matches their WHIP and H9, showing how K9 is weighed less as it didn’t help spring that 3rd guy up where the 2nd is despite close WHIP and H9. Nothing surprising here. The change Guy made didn’t change the order they are ranked, just the numbers used to rank them. Before maybe those guys were ranked 95, 80, 75 and now it’s 99, 87, 84. What changed so drastically in your eyes between those 3 compared to each other? They remain in the same order he just evened out how many are in the 90s, 80s, etc. Your concern, that the 87 guy should be much lower than the 99 guy, has to do with the other players in the league. If there are a lot in between them the 87 guy would rank lower. If he was the next best pitcher in the league he’d also be a 99 or 98. Depends on the other players in that specific league more now, like it should.

As for changing a player to a different season, which I guess you can do in that league, you couldn’t know what they’d be ranked before either without actually bringing them into the league. I don’t see what changed. Guy already said pitchers were never a straight average of the 3, just hitters were.


I just looked at the RPs in that league. There’s a 47 ranked guy with 1.50 WHIP 6.3 H9 5.4 K9. This truly shows how much WHIP affects total rank. His H9 is top in the league and 2.0 less than the 99 rank pitcher, but the near lowest league WHIP drops him to 47 wow.

I think the weirdness of that league, the low range of WHIPs (all RPs have between 1.40 and 1.54 WHIP) contributes to odd things you see. But the order should never have changed between the players you listed as player B is better in all 3 categories than player A
