As for the rankings, just a big FYI, those rankings are based on averages from the ENTIRE roster. I repeat, the ENTIRE roster. Did you get that? Rostiré enteró . Not just the important guys. Not just the 1-9 starters. Everyone. Yeah even that weird guy with the curly mustache that hasn't pitched since May. Yes, him.

Let's say, hypothetically, the Texas Rangers are the best team in real-life baseball. But in their bullpen, there's one particular guy, let's call him Oliver Perez. This guy is absolutely terrible. Can't pitch at all. Now in real life that is pretty much meaningless. Managers will just avoid using him in any and all important situations. Maybe he's out of minor league 'options' and they are just biding their time waiting to release him.

In The Show however, that guy's terrible overall rating of, say, 30, is going to bring the ENTIRE pitching overall from a 98 to maybe an 83 (A pitching staff is only like 12 people).

Then that in turn is going to bring the team's overall ranking from like a 97 to perhaps a 90.
Bobhead...

Question for you...regarding fielder reactions...does it pertain to only infielders or does it affect outfielders as well...

For example....someone like Brett Gardner (if you go by Range on Fangraphs)...he should be a 99 on the "reaction attribute"

My question (outfielders only)...is there any difference on the jump a 99 reaction Brett Gardner gets to go chase down than the baseball in mlb the show than someone who is a 40-50 reaction attribute (like Jonny Gomes)...???

Does anyone else know this answer?

They might have the worst defense in AL, and are slow everywhere. They get an easy playoff road and have Verlander and Miggy/Prince so people think they are some juggernaut.
Victor Martinez? Alex Avila? Torii Hunter? Scherzer?

Do you even watch the Tigers? Apparently not.

Wow...so I must of been dreaming when I saw the Giants win the World Series last year. I guess it just didn't happen. That's a bummer because I was hoping they would go for the Dynasty label this year. It's ok though, the Dodgers pretty much won this division last year. And the Reds beat the Giants in 2 games. And the Cards knocked them out after 4. And the number one rated team, well they had a lead there for a moment.

I mean, this is a joke right? Arizona, LAD, and Colorado...Colorado!! Are all ranked ahead of the World Champs. They better go look at their rating system quickly and figure out what went wrong!!

What people need to remember is that the 2012 Jays team BEFORE they made all these moves, is much better than their 73 win record showed.

Majority of their team was injured for at least half the 2012 season(Bautista didn't play in 70 games,Lawrie and JP both missed around 35 games, 3 of their top 5 SP missed over 40 combined starts cause of injuries)

It was one most injured teams in franchise history(and one of the most in MLB history,almost tieing MLB record for most players used in a season). Had it not been for that, they'd easily have been a low-mid 80s win team in 2012. So once you factor in all the moves they made, assuming they are healthy(which as of day 1 of MLB The Show rosters,they are) they'd be around a team thats projected to finish around low-mid 90s wins.
Are you kidding me?!?! Toronto is ranked 5th based on what??? They won 73 games last year and picked up a bunch of overpaid players from a sorry Miami team that won 69 games. There is absolutely no reason why totonto should be that high...I know there is a lot of blue jay fans out there but you guys need to be a bit more realistic. If I can admit that boston doesn't belong you guys should at least try to be a bit more reasonable.

You're obviously kidding if you're defending them being 1 overall.

Oh man I love this!!! Appreciate the developers of MLB The Show even more because they ranked the Giants at #17. This just made my day!!!
 
# 147 gator3guy @ 02/22/13 07:07 PM
Didn't read the thread so if this has been mentioned, I apologize, but if the defensive rankings are any indication, UZR has NOT been incorporated into ratings this year. A little assumption on my part however.
 
# 148 Sco291 @ 02/22/13 07:08 PM
Boston 3rd?

Madness.
 
# 149 thaSLAB @ 02/22/13 07:10 PM
The Tigers obviously benefited from me being in their farm system

The more I look at this the more I'm convinced this is wrong. I'm going to wait until the first roster update to see if this is some messed up joke.

The guy who got the game early must have done some editing.

Plenty actually. None of those serve as a rebuttal to what I just said. They're a hard sell being better than the 6th best team in the AL, let alone MLB. They're just in the right division.

Enjoy this moment, because when October roles around...you won't be so happy about it! Gotta love the Giants-Dodgers rivalry. I just wished MLB would set the Dodgers up for the Giant's first home series. Just so they could watch the ring ceremony and have to sit through all the hoopla.

I mean I''m not saying that that is what i believe, but there is more than enough reason to believe they should be that high.
Vegas prediction means nothing to me. Although not perfect, my top 15 would look like this

1. Giants
2. Tigers
3. Yankees
4. Nationals
5. Angels
6. Cardinals
7. Reds
8. A's
9. Rangers
10. Blue Jays
11. Rays
12. Braves
13. Dodgers
14. Phillies
15. White sox

I am a red sox fan and did not even list them. Based on 2012 regular season performance, 2012 post season and off season moves, this imo is the way it should look.

I agree on the division. Last years stats aren't representative of them with Martinez however.

You can put their lineup/pitching rotation against anyone in the league with (arguably) the best pitcher and hitter in the game. The Tigs are pretty easy to defend.

I just love reading all these comments. Everybody's favorite team is ranked too low while all the other teams are ranked too high. Incredible.
 
# 156 Lovesports @ 02/22/13 07:25 PM
I have them 10th instead of 5th. Im not saying they suck...I'm just saying that they haven't done anything other than have a good off season. That doesn't always translate to wins. They still need to prove it on the field like the other teams have.

Hey man, in my case...it's true! No love whatsoever for the World Champs.

I feel like I just got married and my wife told me on our honeymoon that I was the 17th best she ever had in bed. But I thought I was the best!

*confidence shattered

You're #1 in my book handsome

The Jays "won" the offseason but I'm a Marlins fan... and (except for Pujols) we "won" the offseason last year. And it came together to smell like a giant turd. And then the Jays went and grabbed four Marlins, four guys from a team that lost 93 games.

Toronto is great, and I'm a closet Jays fan since my childhood... but as a Marlins fan first, I know that the Jays have done NOTHING until the season plays out and we see if the offseason translates to in-season wins.

They added talent, yes, but based on the 2012 of that talent (except for RA Dickey), theres no guarantees for Toronto.

It wouldn't surprise me if whoever made/compiled this "overall team ratings" list spilled coffee all over their keyboard while doing so..
