Methodology/FAQs/Definitions: ¬†Click here for a long list of FAQs.
Positions (Season): ¬†‘POS’ represents all position the player had either 20 games played that season or the previous season (the general standard for fantasy baseball). ¬†‘MVPOS’ represents the most valuable position for the player which is used in determining the player’s value based on the following¬†order of most valuable to least valuable: C, SS, 2B, 3B, OF, 1B, DH. ¬†Pitchers are either designated as a starter or reliever and¬†is more subjective given the shifting roles of relievers over the years. ¬†In general, any pitcher whose GS represent 50+% of Games is noted as a SP as well as any pitchers with 20+ GS.
Positions (Career): ¬†The ‘Pos’ field for hitters reflects any position where the player qualified for 1+ years and it was deemed their most valuable fantasy position (see above). ¬†The shorthand is C=Catcher, 1=1B, 2=2B, S=SS, 3=3B, O=OF, D=DH. ¬†Pitchers typically are set to S (Starter) or R (Reliever) based on their predominant role. ¬†A combined SR is given to pitchers who had 3+ years in both roles (e.g., Dennis Eckersley) or 1-3 years in each role.
Halls: “F” is Hall of Fame, “M” is¬†Baseball Think Factory’s Hall of Merit, “FM” is both. ¬†For those unfamiliar with the BBTF Hall of Merit, consider it a wiser, less corrupt, more SABR-friendly Hall of Fame. ¬† Four players are voted in every year. ¬†Players must be retired for 5 years before becoming eligible.¬†¬†Players are never made ineligible (unlike the HOF who ‘one and done’ players like Lou Whitaker, Bobby Grich, and Kevin Brown).
Awards:¬† Just includes Cy Young and MVP awards. ¬†The Cy Young Award was awarded to the best MLB pitcher starting in 1956 and then became the best pitcher in each league in 1967. ¬†The MVP award has been awarded to the most valuable player in each league since 1931.
Filtering Results:¬† You can filter multiple fields at the same time. ¬†The text fields below the column headers enable several methods for filtering the data. ¬†Here are some examples:
|ANY MATCH||‘B’ in Pos||Typing B in Pos will filter to any player with 1B, 2B, or 3B eligibility. ¬†Type in more details to filter further – e.g., “1B’, “1B, 3B”, etc.|
|OR|||||Ruth|Aaron in ‘Name’||All players with Ruth or Aaron in their name|
|NOT||!||!FM in ‘Halls’||All players who are not in both the Hall of Fame and the Hall of Merit|
|NOR||! |||!F|M in ‘Halls’||All players who are not in the Hall of Fame NOR the Hall of Merit. ¬†Just use the ! once.|
