Best list yet.

I like how Josh Hamilton is almost as good as Albert Pujols...interesting... And how Carl Crawford, the best 5 tool player in the game is 9th overall. Good ratings.

Looks good to me.. thanks for the post

I'll go through that one by one:

Braun: looks ok

Hamilton: vastly overrated

He increases from being rated 79/67/79/58 in the last roster update to 85/72/91/80 what did he do last year to deserve it? I know he was injured, but why not keep it the way it was last year?
His 2008 btw. was very good but he can thank Rangers ballpark for that. I know he is a popular player and a feel good story, but no way he should be ranked ahead of Holliday.

Manny, Bay look alright.

Holliday seems a bit weak against LHP, but there was a dropdown against left handers last year so I think it's OK.
Before somebody says that Coors Field inflated Holliday's numbers more than Hamilton's. Look at their OPS+. Holliday has been better than Hamilton EVERY SINGLE YEAR.

What are you talking about?

Here are their major hitting attributes:

Pujols: 90,99,87,94,94,99,99
Hamilton : 85,72,91,80,58,70,85

ahh man @ Matt Holliday fielding rating a 59, dude make one mistake in the playoffs where the ball hits him where the sun don't shine..and his rating gets dropped. I thought he was a good fielder.
 
# 7 JermaineDye05 @ 02/24/10 02:02 PM
Most accurate ratings so far.

Braun's batting stance looks off which is weird because it was pretty much perfect in last years game. A pretty good list though
 
# 9 jrod1981 @ 02/24/10 02:16 PM
WHAT! No Alfonso Soriano?!?!? I am sooooooo being sarcastic it hurts. I'm not sure I buy Josh Hamilton being ranked that high. It also pains me, as a cubs fan, to see Braun ranked so high.
 
# 10 Perfect Zero @ 02/24/10 02:18 PM
Pretty fair I'd say. Josh Hamilton was hurt most of last year, and when he came back he was still not doing well. I guess that's what happens when you crash into outfield walls at high speeds. As I've said before, the Ballpark helps because, duh, you play half your games in it.

Yeah, it looks like the generic one. I've got to think it will be the same as last year on the game we get, otherwise someone screwed up.

I have a question and was wondering if someone can answer this. Ryan Braun is ranked number one and i was looking at his attributes and it says he bats right and his right contact and power are 75 , 73 now here's the thing that is boggling my mind. For a guy that isn't a switch hitter how is it that his lefty batting stats are 90 for contact and 95 for power. Now since he's only a right handed hitter shouldn't those stats be at zero?

That's against RHP and against LHP.

Those are his attributes against left-handed pitchers.

Juan Rivera is better than Carl Crawford? Really? No really? Guy is a walking injury. This just shows how badly baseball games value defense and speed. Its a joke
 
# 16 keymax @ 02/24/10 02:39 PM
It actually makes sense not weight in defense too much for the LF overall rating.
LF is an offensive position. There and at 1B you hide your weakest defensive players. You can see at the SS list that defense is weighted in there much more.
 
# 17 slickkill77 @ 02/24/10 02:46 PM
Defense is important at every position. Doesn't matter where it is. If you can prevent runs you win. The list is a joke.
 
# 18 Speedy @ 02/24/10 02:55 PM
Carl Crawford has got to get more love.
 
# 19 El_MaYiMbE @ 02/24/10 03:06 PM
Jason Bay is over rated. Carl Crawford is an absolute beast (we see him 19 times a year).

Other than that I think they give too much love to power hitters. Manny is by far the worst fielder in that whole screen shot! He is a future Hall of Famer and is an amazing hitter, but Carl Crawford's 5 tool ability should outway some of the power other players have.
