Elias Rankings Update

After the season the Elias Sports Bureau will take all players over the 2009-10 period, divide them into five groups for each league, and rank them based on various statistics.  Then each player will be labeled a Type A, B, or none.

Eddie Bajek has reverse-engineered the Elias rankings, and he's providing that information exclusively at MLB Trade Rumors.  Here's a look at how the players rank for the period beginning with the 2009 season running through June 9th, 2010.  The Google spreadsheet below has separate tabs for each position group.  The players have about four more months to change these rankings.

    This is a great feature however this year I can’t view the rankings. Does anyone else have this problem, does anyone have a solution, or is there another way they can be posted so that I can enjoy them?

  2. I can’t believe that Justin Morneau has a rating of 74.

    How is Manny still a type A? 3 of the 5 stats used for outfielders are counting stats-PA, HR, RBI-the guy missed almost a third of the season last year. And I agree Morneau should be higher.

      DL time isn’t factored in. so i guess some of manny’s production is a carry over from his 08 season.

        Did his suspension count as DL time? Either way I didn’t know that, thanks for the info.

    A squeeze pick for Varitek would be pretty sweet.

      You think he’d turn down arb?

        I think it’s a possibility with a season like this and Boras in his ear. The whole thing basically turns on Martinez, though.

        • Yankees420 5 years ago

          Yeah but he listened to Boras once and turned it down, gotta imagine he’d learn from his mistakes.
