I think they did a pretty good job with these players so far. Interested to see the rest of the ratings moving into the low 80s and 70s. Personally, I think Arrieta, Jansen, Seager and McCann are too high, while I think Perez, Abreu, Bogaerts, and Archer (wherever he is, should be at least an 88) are too low. (Just my opinion, don't kill me).

Kyle Seager is not a top 8 Third Baseman?

Very quick to give Correa a 91 but I feel like Bryant should be higher than an 85 and Schwarber should probably be higher than Khris Davis and Jayson Werth

Kyle* Seager at 3B. You're right though, he should be there.

Yep my bad. I think he's earned his rating/placement among his position group more than Corey has haha.

agreed on Bryant and Schwarber being underrated... Sad thing!

I think the main reason why Bogaerts is so low is that has no power at all but I hope they gave him some decent fielding because they under rated it last year.

OVR ratings are fun but don't get caught up in them too much. For example, look at Justin Upton and Dee Gordon. You have two guys that are rated 90 OVR but how they get there involves two very different stories. Look at their specific strengths & weaknesses and how it relates to their position and role on the team. This ratings make for fun discussion, but when it comes down to it they're not the most important thing.

I definitely agree with u on Abreu being to low. I would have him at least at an 89. Archer I would assume is the next guy at 88 if not then definitely has to be at a 87. Overall though I think they did pretty good with these ratings.

Would u agree that Frazier is a little low? Maybe more like an 86

I'm a Cubs fan, and I think they are rated pretty well. Though his SLG and OBP were nice, Bryant struck out 199 times or whatever, and played only average defense at 3rd base.

Schwarber hit only .143 against lefties. Plenty of work to do there still. He actually played very solidly in left field; only 1 error in 43 games... but then the NLCS happened

I think Frazier is about right. Maybe 85. He's close to Bryant which makes a lot of sense. Both have great power and not so great averages with similar defense. Bryant has more upside but Frazier could be an 85 too.

Yea, I don't get too caught up in the ratings. And if someone is rated to low you can always edit them.

Yea I think that I'm just so hyped to have Frazier that I just wish he was a little higher lol but when u put it that way I guess he is about where he should be at.

Have fun with Cespedes. I definitely thought he was coming to the Sox but I don't blame him for going back to his world series team

Not a single Atlanta Brave listed.



I'm going to HAVE to get very familiar with the FM of the OSFM roster.

Greg Stanton? Or Giancarlo Stanton?

Yeah, Madison Bumbarner is another typo.



Anyone else notice that DISC isn't on these radial graphs? Did they run out of room and decide to exclude that attribute from the graph? Couldn't they have made the slices a little thinner to fit in one more attribute?

Jon Lester the 18th ranked pitcher......... BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

Good to see Longo in the top 10 for 3B.

I dont put too much stock in OVR ratings but just for argument's sake, the catching stock looks a little out of wack. I don't know how how Cervelii, Grandal and Vogt are rated as low as they are. I know they can't quantify pitch framing or pitch calling in the game, but all three of those guys are among the best offensive catchers in the game. I also don't understand how Wade Davis is any lower than a 95. Other than that, the ratings look great except for a few guys who haven't been able to stay healthy being overrated. Cespedes is tricky because if he's in left, he's a gold glove caliber fielder but if he's in center, he's a complete liability.

I personally think Adam Wainwright is under-rated. (yes I am biased but I still believe it)

2nd in Cy Young voting in 2013. 3rd in 2014.

They said that they would throw out injured years but even if they did not throw out his 2015 then he still had a 1.61 ERA in his four starts.

Seriously, just looking ahead of him, how is Dallas Keuchel's last three years of stats average out better than Wainwrights? They have to be taking off points for Wainwrights age or bumping Keuchel for his Cy Young Award, otherwise it doesn't make any sense to me. Wainwright outperformed him in every category in 2014. Wainwright far outperformed him in 2013 as Dallas had a pretty bad year that year, which they say accounts for 1/3 of his rating.

And I am not bagging on Keuchel at all just making a case that Wainwright is underrated.
