NOTES:
Using the Grid: To sort, click the column header. Clicking once will sort in descending order. Click twice for ascending order. The Name field does not support sorting. To filter, type within the text box underneath the column headers. For text, it looks for any match (so ‘John’ under name would include Johnny Cueto and Chris Johnson). For numbers, you can use greater than and less than signs as well (so >1 in Runs would filter to only players with at least 1 Point Share in Runs). You can use multiple filters at the same time.

Methodology – Our $ methodology is based on our Point Shares (PS) – a SGP variant where we create a universe of rostered players based on the position constraints and value the difference per stat of the player vs the ‘average rostered player’. These differences are then divided by the modeled amount that represents a standing point in that format (e.g., 7 HRs, 15 RBIs). These Point Shares are then added up and divided into fixed dollar distributions for Hitters (67%), starting pitchers (usually around 23%) and relievers (usually around 9%). The sum of the category dollars + $1 equal the players total dollar estimate. $/Game represents a player’s value when he starts a game.

Roster: For ‘ESPN Roster’, this is C/1B/2B/SS/3B/5 OF/CI/MI/UTIL/9P. For ‘Yahoo Roster’, this is C/1B/2B/SS/3B/3 OF/2 UTIL/2 SP/2 RP/4 P. For AL/NL-only leagues, this is 2C/1B/2B/SS/3B/5 OF/CI/MI/UTIL/9P.

Pos / MVPos: ‘Pos’ includes every position the player is eligible. ‘MVPos’ is the position that was used for their Point Share rankings and is the position where the player is judged most valuable. The order of most valuable to least valuable for positions is: C, SS, 2B, 3B, OF, 1B, DH. Note that the position eligibility rules for ESPN and AL/NL only formats is 20 games previous season / 10 games current season while Yahoo format is 10 games previous season / 5 games current season.

Owned%: Based on ownership within the Razzball Commenter Leagues which consists of 80+ 12-team MLB leagues using the standard ESPN roster format.

    Hey Rudy – I’ve just been scouring the ROS Player Rater for Holds guys and noticed that Jansen features prominently in the PS ratings, even though he’s the closer now.

    Is this something that will be adjusted or are you at the mercy of your feed?

    • This is based on my formula for projecting Saves/Holds. It leverages last 30 Save/Hold/Appearances data to determine a relief pitcher’s role. When there is a closer change, it’ll take a couple weeks before it fully recognizes it. Until then, the new closer will slowly see an increase in projected Saves vs. Holds and the inverse for the booted closer. I may start trying to incorporate 7 day data in there to make the transitions quicker – just a little worried that it might get too aggressive in anointing closers based on short-term results. (e.g., while Jansen is a near-sure thing to maintain the closer role, you wouldn’t want to project Benoit as a ‘sure thing’ based on the fact he has the last 2 saves)

      The alternative is I manually manage a ‘closer’ list and then disqualify them from Holds. Maybe I go there at some point but the more automated I can keep everything, the more I can do.

      • SteveNZ says:

        @Rudy Gamble: Nice one – thanks. That all makes sense.

        A few interesting names creeping upwards when sorting for Holds from the last time I did this exercise.

        Do you play in any Holds leagues?

        • @SteveNZ: Nope, don’t play in Holds leagues. I’m not a fan of the stat and I’m a registered Mr. B – i’ve started Jansen and K-Rob all year in RCL.

          Holds are real tough to project. I’d really focus on the MRs with the best fundamentals who also seem to be getting projected Holds (which means they are being put into Hold situations).

          • SteveNZ says:
            (link)

            @Rudy Gamble: Oh, I agree, it’s a silly stat. I mean, how does a guy who gets an out, loads the bases, leaves the game and then they all come in to score so that his team looses the lead, ‘earn’ a Hold?

            But my H2H league counts ’em so gotta stay on top of ’em.

            Only Jansen and Robertson? Pppfffttt. My RCL team has Robertson, Peralta, Hernandez and Cecil (plus closers) :-)

            • @SteveNZ: I had Al-Al for a month and then I went all-in on Hittertron/streaming hitters. So I’ve been using 1-2 bench slots for hitters so that leaves less room to carry MRs.

              • SteveNZ says:
                (link)

                @Rudy Gamble: This is more of a Hitter-tron question, but do you have a method for deciding whether to use a hitter who is as hot as dogs’ balls, but has an unfavorable $ rating on the Tron for a given day or 7-day period?

                • @SteveNZ: In general, I ignore any recent hot streaks when streaming hitters. If I feel the hitter is going to be worthwhile to start for most of the week, I’ll keep him and maybe stash him on the bench when he has an off-day or bad matchup. Otherwise, I think a lot of those ‘hot as dog balls’ streams are really just very good matchups – e.g., a Rockie/Ranger at home, a hitter facing a run of pitchers of opposite hand, etc.

                  I had that issue recently with Schierholtz who was off Monday. Dropped him on Sunday to pick up someone playing on Monday and was able to get him back on waivers for Tuesday. At this point, I’m debating whether he’s just worth owning given he’s hitting well and in a good spot in the lineup (3rd spot).

                  But I dropped Leonys Martin after a great AVG/SB streak because he was going on the road. Dropped Mike Carp after he moved to day-to-day with injuries.

                  Hope that helps..

                  • SteveNZ says:
                    (link)

                    @Rudy Gamble: Yeah – that’s great.

                    Funny thing – I dropped Leonys in my H2H to grab a guy for Monday too – him being on the road helped with that decision. Have grabbed him back now though! (and started him today in the RCL)

                    Also – I grabbed Schierholtz for today in H2H, but have already dropped him for Ruggiano tomorrow (hope I don’t regret that). Will be back on Leonys on Thursday though…

                    • looks like we’re streaming a lot of the same hitters. i have Schierholtz and Ruggiano going today in RCL. I think Leonys has now graduated to ‘owned’ with a likely chance he’ll get dumped back down into the stream pool (78% owned in RCL on Sunday night – just hit 2 HRs). i like him for streaming @TEX but hard to get too excited about a 9th place hitter with okay power/solid speed.

  2. SteveNZ says:

    Rudy – think I’m right in assuming you own Braun in the RCL, if not elsewhere. What are you doing with him?

    Holding and hoping for the best? Or trying to offload him?

    • gotta stand tight. who’d give up a lot for him at this point?

  3. JohnnnyC says:
    (link)

    How do these ranking work? You like Starlin Castro over Chris Davis the rest of the way in a 12 person yahoo league? Starling Marte over Jay Bruce in an OPS league?

    • JohnnnyC says:
      (link)

      Yovanni Gallardo, Lester and Masterson over Davis? Brandon Beachy?

    • You’re reading the grid correctly. Factoring up through 1st half 2013, Starlin Castro is projected to be slightly more valuable in the 2nd half than Chris Davis. Remember that this takes position into account and, everything equal, a SS > 1B. That said, there’s no way I’d trade Chris Davis for Starlin Castro right now.

      Bruce and Marte are virtually equal in the 6×6 OPS ROS player rater (https://razzball.com/playerrater-restofseason-6x6ops/) – $21.0 vs. $20.9. Bruce has the power advantage but his OPS suffers b/c his OBP is nothing special.

    If this is updated almost daily why is JFernandez #21 not trying to be mean just curious how often its updated.
    I appreciate all the hard work you guys put into this site.

    • @desert_heat: It is updated every day. Playing time estimates are revised through a somewhat complex method based on pre-season expectations (including health), recent playing time, and DL status. With J-Fer, it noted he was on the 15-day DL and deducted 4 starts. I have to go in to adjust DL stints longer than the minimum. That was the case with J-Fer. Thanks for the heads-up.

        Thanks for the explanation Rudy.

    Hey Rudy,

    Any reason Jung Ho Kang doesn’t show up?

    • i think i know the reason – ROS hasn’t been updated yet BTW but should be updated very soon

  7. José Francisco Montouto Vázquez says:

    How often is this updated? Same rankings since the begining of the season

  8. Rick says:
    (link)

    Hey Rudy, I just checked your RoS ratings with the Steamer RoS projections on FanGraphs and although “Hitting” and “Pitching” are up to date (Projected PA/IP), none of the categories have updated. It sounds like a programming error. Can you fix that without too much trouble? Thanks.

    • @Rick: Thanks. It’s now fixed. Had switched these to look at the pre-season tables in the pre-season and had forgotten to switch them back. Thx for heads-up!

  9. Rick says:
    (link)

    Hey Rudy, thanks for updating that. I use it regularly. I have a question for which there may not be an answer. Is there any measure you have found, other than BABIP, which is similar to FIP, Siera, or xFIP for pitchers? Since you showed that “hot” hitters are not really all that “hot”, how can you get a read on whether or when to drop a player who isn’t performing, or pick a player who is performing in the short term? Is most of it just trusting the pre-season projections and then the RoS updates, or is there some other metric you have found that can be used for hitters? Thanks for your thoughts.

    • Ok, just updated the Saves/Hold projection formula. It’s more complex than last year’s – it’s now looking not just at the last 30 days but factoring in if there’s a closer on the DL (e.g., Wade Davis won’t be saving at this current rate for long) and when a pitcher enters the game (as some teams have ridiculous levels of Holds right now).

      It’s not perfect (e.g., the Red Sox have a crazy low total SV projection b/c of Uehara’s injuries and no one else has earned a save) but I think it’s pretty good.

      Let me know if anything anomalous stands out.

      I tend to bank on the projections for a hitter’s true value. BABIP, K-rate, BB-rate, HR/FB, etc all help but ROS $ is probably the best one as long as the playing time projections looks right. If playing time is in question, I tend to shed the player immediately in shallow leagues.

      • Rick says:
        (link)

        @Rudy Gamble: Thanks. I’ll check the saves/holds regularly to see how it’s working.

        I do basically the same thing you do, but I find that I usually end up keeping the team I’ve drafted since it’s usually the best players available. I use the wire to pick up players others have dropped, but I’m usually behind the curve when it comes to new players unless Steamer has them highly rated. I’ve relied on FIP and the Streamonator for pitchers which has been quite successful, but with hitting I’ve often held onto players much longer than I should because of the methods ZiPS and Steamer use for their RoS (think Jay Bruce last year). It’s still a puzzle to me.

        • @Rick: It isn’t easy to know when to cut bait on a hitter. I think someone like Jay Bruce 2014 is near impossible to drop in shallow league in the 1st half. I think the players I’d least want to give up on (besides the obvious) are guys that are young, have shown strong HR or SB skill, and appear locked into the first 6 lineup spots. So I’m holding onto my Khris Davis for now b/c I think he’s a legit 25 HR guy who won’t kill me in the other spots. I’ve held onto Lawrie (vs jumping on a hot schmotato like Devon Travis) for similar reasons (plus pos flex). But once a guy starts getting benched/platooned or exiled to the bottom third of the lineup, drop away…

          • Rick says:
            (link)

            @Rudy Gamble: Thanks for your insights. That’s a good way to look at the situation without abandoning the methodology of the projections. Without that as a framework we’re in the completely new territory of developing our own rankings in midstream which sort of defeats the whole purpose of using someone else’s projections.

  10. Rick says:

    Hey Rudy,
    I just noticed that yesterday Neil Walker’s value took a steep nosedive from $18 to $3.5. I’m assuming it’s because his PA was adjusted way downward to 264. I’m not sure if this happened only to him, or there was some readjustment in the program, or if this is an error or error correction…. He’s been playing regularly and doesn’t ‘seem’ to have an injury. Why the big change?
    Thanks,
    Rick

    • @Rick: It’s hard to say but I think I know what is happening. Every player has both a fixed playing time estimate (that is changed only when a permanent role change has occurred) and dynamic playing time estimate (based on last 30 days). The system assumes last 30 days is a good proxy for a regular player as long as they play 70+% of games – otherwise, it assumes the player was injured and takes their fixed role.

      I think Walker might have just peaked over the threshold (he’s at 71%) and, thus, saw a drop in projected Games/PA.

      I think Harrison’s injury will knock his playing time up against LHP and that will be reflected in time.

      The $/Game ignores this volatility for the most part so I wouldn’t worry too much about $ changes if you don’t think a guy’s role has changed as dramatically as my logic does.

  11. Rick says:

    Hey Rudy,
    When you have a moment, could you check the ROS player rater? Several players have disappeared (Alcides Escobar, AJ Burnett, to name a few). It’s a great tool.
    Thanks,
    Rick

    • @Rick: thx for heads-up. trying to get to bottom of it. it’s an issue w/ one of our data feeds…

    • @Rick: Should update soon. Glitch because all the All-Stars had ‘AL’ and ‘NL’ as their teams.

    Thank you for all of the great analysis, just a heads up I do a lot of data parsing I couldn’t seem to find Papelbon.

      • Will says:
        (link)

        Jimmy Nelson seems a bit underrated given his upside and recent preformance, no?

        • I don’t think so. I own him in two 15-team leagues – so I’m hoping for the best – but his recent ‘streak’ is fueled by a very low BABIP (.233) and 0 HRs. Those regress back to a more sustainable level and all the ratios go up. He’s increased K-rate which is positive. He’s a matchup starter to me in anything less than 15-team.

          • Will says:
            (link)

            @Rudy Gamble: Fair enough, thanks! Where do you find stats that you can sort by a time frame? I wouldn’t have known where to look to find that .233 BABIP.

  13. Will says:
    (link)

    Sorry should have looked before I asked, found it.

    • @Will: Np – I put it right at the top of the Player Pages for a reason :)

    (link)

    something’s up with the ROS OPS rater. probably a minor glitch, but it has c.santana as -20ish for ROS. wasn’t able to trade for lindor as my opp is worse at MI than me, but i did have crazy volume of speed/runs OF’ers in yelich/revere/ellsbury/gardner and d.gordon, but only zimmerman/teixera (top 2 most injurable 1B in MLB) along with platooner bour, so i got c-sant str up for gardner.

    I have two questions regarding RP $value:

    1. For this and the other tools, are Wins used to calculate RP $value?
    2. For the purposes of $value on tools where both Saves and Holds are tracked (7×7 I think is the only one I see) – are those values combined to calculate $, or is the higher one used, etc.

    I’m in a QS and SV+HD league (no Wins) – trying to figure out how to best evaluate RP’s for a balance of general value (Ks/ERA/WHIP) and the SV+HD category.

    • 1) Yes, Wins are included in RP $ value. If you add up the $ values and add 1, it’ll match the $. So if you want to discount them, you can come up w/ your own $ calculation/ranking.
      2) Saves and Holds are both used.

      I would use the 7×7 and just subtract out the Win $.

  16. Randy Harris says:

    I’m having a hard time understanding some of your ROS projections, particularly at C. For instance, you still have Travis D’Arnaud getting 300+ more PA even though he’s been injured for several weeks. His position on your ROS rankings has not changed since the injury. Can you help me understand what’s going on? Thanks.

    • D’Arnaud is projected to start ~70% of games upon his return. I just did a runthrough of all DL’d hitters to update their return dates. Had to add some days to D’Arnaud’s DL stint. Thx for heads-up! (Pouring out some ouzo for Moustakas – see you on ROS Player Rater in 2017!)

  17. Upt Set says:
    (link)

    Justin Upton. What is the matter with him? There is no sign of injury (except the hammy from last week). I think it’s a situation where I can’t drop him and can’t play him. Do you have any thoughts? At this point I probably can’t get anything for him even if I sell low.
    Thanks

    • @Upt Set: i wish i knew. got him in 2 leagues. it seems like he’s always been a streaky hitter but there’s no guarantee that hot streak ever comes. at least with Carlos Gonzalez, it feels like he needs better weather to heat up. with Upton, who knows. weather might be a bit of a factor though – his last two stops were ARI and SD so maybe the hotter weather will help?

  18. Dundeeslugger says:
    (link)

    You really think Villar will be only the 35th best SS for the rest of the year?

    • @Dundeeslugger: Nope. He was long overdue for a ROS playing time correction – I had him as going to part-time when Arcia came up. Wishful thinking from an Arcia drafter. Re-running now but he should be top 10. This is why I show the PA projection as well as $/Game (where he was 8th). Thx for reality check.

  19. Stymied says:
    (link)

    I’m in a 5×5 Roto with 12 teams. I was just offered Cruz and Iglesias for Syndergaard, and I need some power because Martinez is down. My pitching staff is good relief, Pineda, Quintana, Chen, Matz, Samardzija, Roark, an injured Wood, and Syndergaard. Since he is my only true ace I’m uneasy trading him. Do you have any thoughts?

    • This is similar to a discussion Grey and I had late this week about my RCL team that has the three-aced hydra of Max, Thor, and J-Fer but could use power. I think Thor is a top 25 player but top 25 bats are very tough to acquire. Iglesias is a non-factor to me but Cruz is a legit power bat. You are selling At 80ish cents on the dollar but that might be the best u can get.

      It is a tough call that I am struggling with too. Grey would say ‘go for it’

  20. No Longer Stymied says:
    (link)

    So I pulled the trigger and got Cruz and Madson for Thor. I’m hoping to stream enough pitchers to make up the difference. Thank you for your help.

    A question: have you updated playing times recently? I’m thinking Michael Saunders for instance who seems to be playing full time. Do you expect him to get injured? I know it’s a tough call, but I thought I’d ask.
    Thanks

    • @No Longer Stymied: i updating playing time throughout year….Saunders was due for a correction. will be updated by tomorrow morning.

    Hi Rudy,
    I have an abundance of outfielders right now and I’m looking for some pitching. My starting OF is Marte, Upton, Cruz, Polanco and 1 of Reddick, Gomez, Valencia, Khris Davis, and eventually J.D Martinez. There are a lot of pitchers who Steamer still values who are not performing very well: Price, Keuchel, Harvey, Archer, etc. I picked up Pineda earlier in the year and with some SON help he has done very well. I’d like to trade one or two of my outfielders for pitching while the market is weak. Do you have any suggestions, pitchers you’ve been watching, and who would you offer for them?
    Thanks for your help.

  22. ROS Projections says:
    (link)

    How closely do you use the ROS projections in making your decisions on players? I’m thinking of players like Upton who are still listed at $24, but aren’t playing close to that. With Bautista returning soon I have to pull the trigger on an outfielder and I have Upton, and then Reddick and Polanco who are listed at $11. What would you do and why?
    Thanks

    • This is a great question. I do put a lot of weight on ROS for while trying to take calculated gambles with emerging players (either becoming full-time players, better lineup position, showing power or speed uptick) on open roster slots – usually OF4/5, CI/MI, UTIL, etc.

      I think any of those OFs are tradable – just about getting the best deal back. No one will pay for Reddick who I do think is a solid OF5 in shallow leagues (and one I’d bench vs LHP in daily leagues). But Upton or Polanco should return something.

  23. Rick Romito says:
    (link)

    Hey Rudy, for the 2017 Pre-Season Rater you included an “Other Hit” and “Other Pitch” category, but it disappeared in the Season to Date and Rest of Season Rater. Is it too much work to include those categories? I’m in 2 leagues with OBP and SLG, and the 5×5 OBP category is as close as I can come with the current selections.
    Thanks for all the work you do,
    Rick

    • @Rick Romito: thanks for the suggestion/feedback. Can’t promise anything but I will see what i can do over the next couple weeks.

    Hi Rudy. I’ve been trying to squirrel together a ROS calculation for my OBP/SLG leagues by using the 5×5 OBP and 6×6 OPS. I noticed that in the PreSeason spreadsheets when I compared the OBP dollar value in the 5×5 OBP to the OBP (no Avg) dollar value in the ‘Other Hit’ category, the numbers aren’t the same, and in fact none of the dollar values are the same ($R, $RBI, $HR, $SB). I would have expected them to be the same since I’m calculating 5×5 OBP either way. Is this supposed to be this way? Can you explain why they are different?
    Thanks for your time,
    Rick

  26. Joe Buck Yourself says:
    (link)

    So why is Marte still listed as #6 best OF ROS? Carlos Gonzalez at #11 ??

    • @Joe Buck Yourself: Just pushed through an update. It had reverted to preseason rankings. All fixed. (It still likes Carlos Gonzalez to bounce back but it doesn’t account for the likelihood he gets traded which dramatically lowers his value)

    You going to adjust starling marte’s plate appearances? current 492 doesn’t seem feasible given projected July 18 return.

    • @Simply Fred: I have done it 3 times already but it keeps getting overridden since current code used to handling DL stints vs suspensions. Will fix on Monday at latest.

        @Rudy Gamble: No worries, Rudy. I can live without it. Will likely get more attention the closer he comes to reinstatement. Not worth me rostering for two months in a counting slot.

    Hi Rudy,

    I have two questions:
    1. Have you found any statistic that makes in-season predictions of future performance for batters (other than ROS) similar to xFIP?

    2. Is there any way to edit my profile? When I try to use the drop down menu it says I’m not allowed in that area.

    Thank you,
    Rick

    • 1) Our ROS projections are using Steamer ROS rates that aim a step higher than xFIP (for ERA). xFIP is a good starting point but still assumes that a pitcher has no control over HRs and that’s not true. Safe bet is that a pitcher will regress to their career HR/9 rates.

      2) razzball.com/wp-admin/network/profile.php

    Hi Rudy,

    Something weird is going on with Edwin Encarnacion. He seems to have completely disappeared from Razzball. Not on the stats lists and his profile seems to be gone.

    Just pointing out in case it’s the symptom of a broader problem.

    Thanks

      @Jake Kimball:

      Same deal with Ryan Zimmerman…and I suppose some others too.

      • Everything is getting restarted after some issues yesterday afternoon. My guess is this issue will resolve once it is all complete in 20 minutes or so.

  30. Got the runs says:
    (link)

    Hey Rudy, why is Samardjiza getting no love? He’s not injured, but fell from a $15 pitcher to $1. Also Bellinger? He seems to be well established as a regular, but show limited playing time. Thanks

    • @Got the runs: Good catches. Bellinger was overdue for a PT spike. Samardzija got caught up in an update glitch with about 14 other pitchers that I just fixed. Should see updated results by the time you finish this comment. Thanks!

  31. Got the runs says:
    (link)

    Hi Rudy,
    PR just doesn’t seem to like Samardzija. Everything else looks good to me.

    • @Got the runs: I found the Shark glitch! I have logic that looks at last 30 days for pitching. If a pitcher has made 2+ relief appearances, I take down their GS and add some relief appearances. Since ‘Relief Appearances’ isn’t a common stat, I calculate it by Games – Games Started. Works fine…..except my process was including Games where a pitcher came in to pinch-hit or pinch-run. Thus, it thought Shark was pitching relief and modified his playing time. Just switched it so a pitcher must face 1+ batters for it to qualify as a game. That should ensure it doesn’t happen again.

    Hmmm…all the top pitchers seem to have disappeared this morning. I think I saw them last last night, but they’re gone now.

    Just checked again and the pitchers are back. No worries.

    Hey Rudy,
    What is going on with Nunez? The PR seems to be showing him as injured. Is there some reason for the low numbers?
    Thank you,
    Rick

    Hey Rudy,
    Would it be too much trouble to include the “Other Hit” hit category in the Season to Date section?
    Thanks,
    Rick

    Hey Rudy,
    For some reason several teams are not showing up in the Other Hit ROS data. Can you take a look at that? Also, would it be possible to include an ‘Other Hit’ category in the Season to Date data?
    Thanks for all your work,
    Rick

    • ok, re-running now. i know an issue was happening that omitted Nationals players from the tools and got that corrected in the daily tools.

      season to date ‘other hit’ on the roadmap – just got a few other thing i gotta do first.

    Hi Rudy,

    In chrome for desktop, the WordPress menu bar covers up the top row of your tool as you scroll down the page. This is the row that includes all of the column titles so I need to memorize the order of your stats when reading lower on the page. The 2nd row, used for filtering columns, “freezes panes” as you scroll down so I think it is just a spacing issue related to the WordPress menu bar

    In Chrome for mobile, neither row “freezes panes” as you scroll down…

    Thanks,

    WCP

    • @westcoastpete: Thanks for the feedback. The code that freezes the top column evidently doesn’t see the WordPress menu bar. It’s on our to do list!

    Hey Rudy,

    Love the ROS, hittertron and streamonator – they’re worth every penny.

    Just curious about the Yarbrough and Pruitt ranks (99 and 111 ROS). They seem kinda high.
    Am I not seeing something about the Rays rotation? Or might there be something screwy in the algorithum.

    If I remember correctly, Pruitt appeared pretty high starting 2 weeks ago, and Yarbrough recently.

    Thanks!

    • @Project X: thanks. the issue w/ yarbrough and pruitt is they are relievers who pitch starter volumes. the player rater allots $ values between SP and RP and then divides them amongst pitchers in those categories. For relievers, Yarbrough and Pruitt have very high W/Ks which spikes their value. Their value is close to $0 in 12-team leagues unless you are in a league that uses GS caps instead of IP caps.

    Hi Rudy,
    Several pitchers have IP listed as 7 even though they are pitching regularly right now (thinking Hill and Eflin) . Does Steamer know something we don’t? Thanks

    • @Got the runs: good catch. made some improvements to catch these issues going forward. should see updated projections by the time you read this.

    Hey Rudy,
    When you get a chance would you please add the “Other Hit” category to Season to Date? BTW have you noticed how the Indians have been taking advantage of the weak Central Division? It’s brutal.
    Thanks

    • i will try. yeah, indians definitely benefitting from an awful division.

    Currently the ROS for Hector Rondon is projecting 0 saves.

    • @Crazy J: Nice catch. Just did a batch update on Saves. Should be updated in a couple of minutes.

    Eh, thinks look WAAAY different… Garcia and Odor are both above $20… they haven’t gotten above $15 all season. Plenty more examples of wackiness. Have something to do with the Trade Deadline?

      @Simsbad: tons of players missing as well

    Can’t find Blake Trienen, doing RP ROS forecasting for some moves. Help us Rudy!

      @johnnyhobbes: should we wait a bit for this to get updates in terms of fellas like Yates ? I cant see how he is the 66th best RP ROS…
