- Draft Comparison Rankings - this first file compares Mock Draft Central (MDC) rankings to those of Yahoo fantasy sports (Y!) and ESPN.com (ESPN). The theory behind this file is that MDC rankings represent free market player valuations (courtesy of mid-February data). By comparing MDC rankings to those of Y! and ESPN, one finds who is under/overvalued in each service. Nelson Cruz seems to be perfectly ranked in both Y! and ESPN!, while Y! seems to underrate Max Scherzer and ESPN seems to undervalue Dan Uggla. EDITOR'S NOTE: Yahoo Sports updated its player rankings on March 11, 2010. I have updated the data to reflect these changes.
- Starting Pitchers Rankings - this second file has my Top 50 Value SP rankings (players are ranked based on draft position value; thus, no Tim Lincecum or Roy Halladay) and a fully sortable spreadsheet listing all the important peripheral and 2009 statistic data for all 130 starting pitchers who logged 100+ innings last season (data courtesy of Fangraphs).
- xBABIP-based 2010 hitter projections - Using 2009 data for all MLB hitters who amassed 300+ PAs last season, I projected 2010 triple slash lines for 284 hitters (assuming that all hits added/subtracted due to "luck" were singles). For more information on how the data was calculated, click here.
- Roto Authority has Fantasy Player Rankings And Valuations By Position, an analysis of What It Takes To Win A Fantasy League In 2010, and a list of Undervalued Hitters For 2010 available online.
- If you search his Fangraphs.com Author Profile, Eno Sarris has several tier-rankings by position and positional value analysis.
- If you sign up for a free account at Mock Draft Central, you get access to a tier-by-position ranking cheat sheet.
- Fangraphs also has Sortable Projection Sheets for CHONE, Marcel and FANS data. Bill James' projections are not available to sort through (you will have to buy them to do that), but they are available to view for each player in that player's statistical profile.
