Seiler Ratings for Top 100

New, 12 comments

My Seiler Rating system is designed to give a quick snapshot about a player without knowing a lot about them. It's broken down into three sections, and it goes like this:

The first digit is a snapshot of the round range I expect a player to go in. A 1 is a player expected to go in rounds 1-3, 2 is rounds 4-6, 3 is rounds 7-10, 4 is rounds 11-15, and 5 is rounds 16-25.

The second piece is a letter that gives a player's ceiling. An A is a superstar position player or true number one starter/elite closer. A B is an occasional all star/above-average position player or number two starter/above-average closer. A C is a solid-average starting position player or a number three/four starter/setup man. A D is a potential bench player or fifth starter/swing man/middle reliever.

The third piece is a digit that tells you the likelihood of a player reaching their ceiling. A 10% chance is just changed to a 1, 20% to a 2, etc. I'm very conservative with this part of the grade, because there are a ton of variables that go into reaching a ceiling, and it's harder to reach a ceiling the higher you go up in your ceiling.

Follow the jump to see my Seiler Ratings for the Top 100 I released yesterday.
