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.

    Ruby, how confident are you in these holds projections? Weird things like SPs getting more Hld$ than set up guys. And guys who aren’t even playing getting big holds $ (Fujikawa? Brett Marshall?) I thinks you got some bugs in this tab.

    • Okay, just did a review and made a few modifications:
      1) Adjusted DL days for a few guys like Fujikawa to take down their ROS games (which then takes down holds)
      2) Adjusted the holds projection formula a bit
      3) Made it so SPs get $0 for Holds (like they do for Saves and RPs get for QS).

      On a larger note, I do not have a ton of faith in Holds projections b/c they are so hard to project. But these changes should make them a little better.

    why is melancon listed as a negative in holds leagues but a positive in regular ones, isn’t he very likely to get holds?

    ROS 6×6 yahoo rankings?

    Sort descending by holds and I see a couple guys at the top that seem out of line…maybe I’m sorting wrong?

    Paco Rodriguez? Tom Wilhelmsen?

    • @titan: I’ll have to review sometime this week. Holds are the bane of my projectioning existence.

        @Rudy Gamble:

        No worries…don’t spend too much time on it….I struggle because our league uses a K/9 ratio in lieu of straight K’s. High K middle relievers are very valuable in my league even if they don’t get holds, but the holds are the icing on the cake. I’m actually hoping Benoit gets traded and can go back to the 8th somewhere to go back next to my Walden. I already lost Melancon from holds to saves…don’t want another. Although a few goodies are still on the wire: Duke, Giles, S.Simmons. D. Carpenter

        • @titan: Made some general changes that should help. I hadn’t put a qualifier on the pitcher being on the active roster. Added that which will remove Paco (and other demoted relievers) from the projections. For Wilhelmsen, his role switched to long relief so updates his Game rate and Hold rate.

    Duuuuuuuuuuude, yer hatin’ on holds again! Howcome Tony Watson got the same holds value as Trevor Gott. Ain’t got!
