Finished with my top 2029!!

After using several formulas and combining the results, factoring in draft status and signing bonus information, age, league and many, many other things...I'm done.

I have rated each person's ceiling and floor based on a 1-10 rating:
10 All-time great
9 Superstar
8 Solid Starter
7 Starter on some teams
6 Part-time player
5 bench warmer
4 top level minor leaguer
3 middle level minor leaguer
2 low level minor leaguer
1 won't last long

10 All-time great
9 Ace
8 #1 or #2, Closer
7 #3-5, Setup man
6 swingman
5 12th pitcher
4 top level minor leaguer
3 middle level minor leaguer
2 low level minor leaguer
1 won't last long

Players with a lot of tools at low levels are given higher ceiling ratings and lower floor ratings. As they move up thru the minors, their floor will typically increase and ceiling will typically drop. Some players will increase both ways, some will decrease both get the picture.

Each player has a numerical rating and using the average and standard deviation, I slotted in grades, because I know some people prefer that method.

The average prospect recieved a 88.5, the top player on the list recieved 178, the lowest a 49.

Grade Overall
A 169+
A- 149-169
B+ 129-149
B 109-129
B- 89-109
C+ 69-89
C 48-69

I also have the basic 1 thru 65 for each team. It is variable. I'll do some team rankings and breakdowns too.

I'm not giving this away though. I've put in way too much work too hand out all the information. I plan on developing this and making it for sale next season in a pdf format.

I will post all the info on any player anyone requests in the comments. Please post in the comments and I'll respond or email me at and I'll put it up.
