    I cannot believe you were so kind to some of these guys. I mean come on Micheal Martinez and ‘F.’ Did he really deserve such a high grade?

    smells like underachieving. or over-priced.

    How did Baumann happen to get all the good players. He gave nearly every A grade. was this a belated wedding gift of assignments, or mere luck of the draw?

    I am not complaining, mind you. Just noticed a trend….

    Can we get a team wide grade based on (player1 games played)*(grade)+(player… games played)*(grade)/(total team games played)?

    Using the college board GPA equivalencies, and PA/BF instead of games, I get a 2.1 (C)

    Thanks for doing that. I was going to ask what their weighted average cumulative grade was. A 2.1 (C) seems a little high for a team with a 73-89 record that was 6 or 7 wins above their pythag record.

    There’s selection bias in that weighted sample. Shittier players played less because they’re shitty.

    I would’ve loved to see the grades for the 2008 season. Lots of A’s I’d assume.

    I’m sorry if I missed this along the way, but what are the grades based on? Are they expectations vs actual performace? Or is it their grade compared to other players? Other?

    2008 Phillies were way worse than the 2011 Phillies.

    We all did it our own way. I did mine factoring in pure performance, my expectations for the player and the team’s expectations for the player. It was entirely unscientific for me.

    The pitching might have been better in ’11, but the offense was way better in ’08.

    well if anyone truely thinks Joe ” walk em all” Diekman deserves an A it will be centuries before this organization wins again

    If you think his first name is “Joe” then I’d give pause before being critical of other people’s opinions.

    I don’t see Ben Revere on this list. Did he not get graded, or just erroneously excluded from the list?
