LOL at George Sherrill being rated above Kimbrel and Venters.

Wow, J-Roll's salary is higher than his real-life contract, and Howards is 25% of this year's.

I like the Nats this year.

You're absolutely right. God forbid there is a team that is better than the Yankees which the Phillies are. Ryan Howard is too low, Domonic Brown and Ben Francisco are too low, and John Mayberry Jr. is also way too low. That's fine though. I can always edit them to where they should be.

I don't care if the Giants did win the World Series (fluke win). They should not be rated higher than the Phillies.

How does Utley find himself above Halladay...?

Yup, that's another one. I'm not maxing their stats out by any means, but I'm going to make sure the correct players are in realistic ratings spots.

Personally, I think the top 3 should be in this order:
Roy Halladay
Cliff Lee
Chase Utley

Also, I remember watching an interview with Russell saying that last year injuries affect ratings this year. If that's the case then Jimmy Rollins shouldn't be ranked #4. He had the injury bug bad last year, and only played in about 82 games or something like that.

Like I said, thank God for editiing.

If Brown continues to play at the same level he has all through last year, winter ball and so far in ST he needs to be rated a lot lower than what he is.
I'm fine with Howard being lower than last year, he straight killed me!

Not to mention Victorino being rated higher than Ryan Howard. What is that all about? I love Shane, but he shouldn't be higher than the big man. Neither should Jimmy.

I agree, some of the ratings for the Braves seem a bit off. Kimbrell and Venters low rating was a bit disappointing

Marlins ratings for the most part seem pretty spot on, can't wait to try them out on Tuesday.

yeah, i've never always agreed with the stock ratings. i always look forward to the re-rates that people do.

one thing as far as victorino being rated higher overall than howard, i sort of get that. i dont (and i'm sure SCEA would probably agree) believe that the flyin hawaiin is a better baseball player than howard, but his contact ratings, speed ratings, baserunning ratings, fielding ratings, bunt ratings, etc...are probably all higher...giving him a higher overall rating. does that make sense?

I am a Phillies fan too but to say the Giants WS win is a fluke is nonsense. They were playing the best ball then anyone came playoff time and it rolled right on over in the postseason.

Thank you so much for recognizing that. The Giants went 11-4 in the Post Season... They lost as many games the whole way threw as the Phillies to the Giants. A fluke? C'Mon Man! I think you are just bitter. I'm not going after you PhiliesPhan26. It takes a lot to recognize a better team. I'm a SF Giants Fan, a SF 49ers fan, USC fan, and the second worst team is basketball... An Indiana Pacers fan. You guys will be good as always this year and I hope that our minor adjustments were the right choice. Good luck and I hate you when we play.....lol
