I love the Blue Jays ratings! Henderson Alvarez got some respect

I'm sorry, but the way they rated the mets players defense is so bad! Murphy higher than Tejada?!??.. Ike just a tad bit above Duda?!?.. Cendo was pretty low.. I didn't catch Wrights. But come on.. Now wonder why we're so low. A lot of players underrated. Duda was a little bid overrated when it came to fielding. But we have a solid defense.. Not awful as it is in the game.. Deffinlty some editing will be done now.

Actual picture I mean. He's got the generated portrait so he should be able to switch caps.

Dang, y is Trout rated higher than Borjous and why is Borjous' fielding so low? He's gold glove caliber.

Contracts can't be real in accordance with the MLBPA.

Ah, nevermind then. It was Josh Spence who showed up.

I'm just not a big fan of the bar for the overall rating.

I don't know why they just don't use numbers like they do for every other rating.

IMO Trout should be rated higher than Borjous even if he's only 20. Kid can do it all. Borjous can pick it in center though. Hopefully his speed makes up for it.

I wonder when the finalized the contract lengths. Carlos Marmol (on the game) only has a one-year deal. In real life he signed an extension through 2014 on February 14. Obviouly that didn't make it into the game. I wonder when the cut-off was.

*Check that, he signed a 3-year extension on February 14, of 2011. Does the game just make up random contracts? Many of them seem to be correct, but Marmol's is definitely off.

I understand, but damn! I mean, they have Fielder's years correct I believe. I know SCEA hands are tied here, so I can't fault them for that. However, does 95% of the MLB need 1 year deals? I wish they would have sprinkled in some 2,3, or 4 year deals. They could have done that to a few players who are locked up long term. I hope that contract glitch is still there.

Cristhian Martinez rated higher than Jason Heyward, Kris Medlen, Freddie Freeman and Martin Prado? Really? And again with the contracts. Dan Uggla is the only player on the Braves who doesn't have a 1-year contract. Everyone else has 1-year contracts. That's crazy. But now that I think about it that's realistic. All the Braves veterans are either going to be free agents after this year or have vesting options on their contracts and then we have all those young guys who go year-to-year. That's crazy!

Danny Valencia got no love for the Twins. He was batting cleanup at the end of the season and did fairly well.........granted it was for a horrible team. Oh well!

If you look at the numbers Martinez had a really good year, WHIP under 1, ERA in the 3's, BAA under .200.

Not suprised he is higher than Heyward/Medlen. I figured Prado & Freeman would be a little higher though. Prado has been a solid player, just had a bad year. Freeman had a solid year, thought he could be higher as a result.

95% of the MLB is, in essence, under one year deals.

Most players, especially those under 30, work on arbitration-to-arbitration deals, which are essentially one year contracts. Once arbitration runs out, that's when the true long-term contracts begin. That is, unless the parent club had the forethought to lock up a player through his arbitration years, which, while getting more popular, is still pretty rare.

The thing to remember is that just because they are on a one year deal, they are still under team control. So even then it's not really a one year deal in the true sense of the term.

why is ike davis rated so low? he was the best hitter on the mets before he got hurt and is probably the best overall player on the team

What was the contract glitch? Refresh my memory. If I remember correctly it had something to do with releasing a player and putting him back on the team, it would generate a random salary/length. Right, wrong?

Yes sir. In 10, I got about 90% of the contract length correct (can't do salaries). Didn't play 11 too much but I heard it was still in. Anyways, I remember in year 1, Lincecum, Fielder, Pujols, etc. etc. all found new teams after the season because they had 1 year deals. Too many players have 1 year deals (yea I know about the arbitration stuff, but even guys who are locked up had 1 year deals). I just hope it is still in this year. It will take about 10 hours of doing it, but will definitely make franchise much better.

Glitch is still there. Contract lengths were accurate for most part besides guys who just signed extensions.
