American League Predictions16. Austin-Zmeisel is doing a nice job giving this franchise some direction but this was always a multi-year rebuild.15. Sioux Falls-Cricket did a nice job setting up this franchise for the future and the lineup is pretty solid but the pitchers are still in the minors.14.

Hall of Fame Career Standards Test by Bill James

Hall of Fame Career Standards TestThese are metrics designed by Bill James to measure how likely a player is to get into the HOF, and not necessarily how good they were. This test gives a score of 50 for an average Hall of Famer, with 100 as the max. It is used to measure the overall quality of a player's career.  The metric uses a one-point addition scale based on career cumulative and rate stats. The all-time leader in batting points is Babe Ruth at 78 and Christy Mathewson leads in pitching points at 84.

HBD Ballpark Factors

Ballpark effects are ranked on a scale from - 4 to + 4, based on their impact on hits (1B), doubles (2B), triples (3B), home runs to left field (HR LF) and home runs to right field (HR RF). The more negative or positive number, the more extreme the effect for that hit in that direction. These numbers are just indicators of the relative effect in the simulation engine. They are important for users and founded entirely on historical fact, but are meant for display purposes and not explicitly used in the simulation engine.
