Point Shares for 10/12/14/15/16-team MLB were updated on Sunday night (March 11th) to reflect the latest available playing time projections. There will be some movement in the rankings based on the playing time changes. I also took a deeper look into relievers possibly converting to starters (Sale, Crow, Bard, Aroldis) to make sure their projections reflected their role (i.e., a pitcher’s projections for ERA/WHIP/K rate are better as relievers vs. starters so if you use ‘reliever’ ERA and starter IP, you end up with very bullish projections).
In addition, I’ve added the following:
- 10-team and 12-team NL Point Shares. Congrats Joey Votto on being #1. Thank Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder for that honor (NL 1B is so bad. I have Freddie Freeman ranked as the 2nd best 1B! He shouldn’t be in the top 2 of anything except maybe active Reggie Cleveland All-Stars.
- OBP/OPS/SLG Guidance – It was clear from our recent poll that many of you are playing with categories besides 5×5. It’s impossible without some serious development to deliver all the possible league permutations but this page provides the following guidance (based on 12-team values):
- Point Share/$ value change per hitter if your league uses OBP instead of AVG
- The Point Shares/$ value change if your league uses OBP/OPS/SLG as a 6th category
