1. Introduction

     Many people have expressed concern in a system that ranks talent and
provides a basic scouting service.   n this guide, you will find rankings for 
offense, defense and pitching.  Also keep in mind that when using these 
rankings, you should ONLY compare players of similar position.  It is not fair 
to either player if you compare an outfielder to an infielder or to a catcher 
or a pitcher.  Players of similar position can be compared, though. For 
example, you can compare middle infielders to one another or corner infielders
to each other, etc.  The top 40 players by each position have been ranked, 
except for pitchers, where the top 200 starters and 200 relievers have been 
ranked.  I arrived at ranking the players by each position by going to fantasy 
draft mode and using all players except computer-created players.  The OER 
stands for Offensive Effectiveness Rating, DER for Defensive Effectivenss
Rating, OPR for Overall Player Rating, SPR for Starting Pitcher Rating and the
RPR for Relief Pitcher Rating.  If you questions about how these ratings are
determined, please see the FAQ on player evaluations.  Also, you will find the
much wanted comparison for players across positions and even to pitchers.  For 
more info on this, once again refer to the player eval FAQ.

Special Thanks to Bill James and the folks at SABR for giving us statistical
ratings and showing us that ballplayers can be charted through a rating
system.  Also thanks to idea of Moneyball for showing us that a team can be
constructed by looking at numbers that other teams/owners/GM's aren't 
interested in.  Finally, thanks to EA for actually providing a numerical rating
value for each player, which allows me further interpret that information.
