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. Â There will be some movement in the rankings based on the playing time changes. Â 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. Â Congrats Joey Votto on being #1. Â Thank Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder for that honor (NL 1B is so bad. Â I have Freddie Freeman ranked as the 2nd best 1B! Â He shouldn’t be in the top 2 of anything except maybe activeÂ Reggie Cleveland All-Stars.
- OBP/OPS/SLG Guidance – It was clear from our recent pollÂ that many of you are playing with categories besides 5×5. Â 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
