I. Introduction

Welcome to the Player Rating FAQ, written by Rashidi.  The purpose of 
this FAQ is to update the ratings of the players in the game, to make 
them as accurate as possible by taking multiple factors into account, 
and to educate readers on MLB history.

Any updates to player ratings or major changes to the FAQ will be 
listed in the Updates section.  Check it whenever a new version comes 
out.

V. How do the ratings work?

First, what are the rating categories? 

(Note: What I am listing the rating as will be in parenthesize).

Value (Value)
Contact vs RHP (RHP Contact)
Contact vs LHP (LHP Contact)
Power vs RHP (RHP Power)
Power vs LHP (LHP Power)
Bunting (Bunting)
Plate Discipline (Discipline)
Durability (Durability)
Speed (Speed)
Stealing Tendency (Stealing)
Baserunning Ability (Baserunning)
Fielding (Fielding)
Range (Range)
Throwing Strength (Strength)
Throwing Accuracy (Accuracy)

Now, what do the ratings do?

Contact vs RHP - 
Contact vs LHP - 
Power vs RHP - 
Power vs LHP - 
Bunting - 
Plate Discipline - 
Durability - 
Speed - 
Stealing Tendency - 
Baserunning Ability - 
Fielding - 
Range - 
Throwing Strength - 
Throwing Accuracy - 

***********************************************************************

VI. The ratings

Ratings will be done in descending order, from highest overall, to 
lowest overall.  This should work best, because the top players are the 
ones most of you will want to edit first.  Doing it by team is bad, 
because players change teams a lot, especially in the offseason.

If you want to find the ratings for specific players, Ctrl + F is your 
best friend.  Seriously.  If you ever complain about not being able to 
find something in an FAQ, it means you are computer illiterate, because 
Ctrl + F is very easy.  Press the Ctrl key.  Hold it.  Then press F.  
Then enter the name of something you are searching for.  Make sure you 
can spell it correctly.

XIII. Questions and Answers

If you have any questions, I'll post it here (if it's a good question).

-----

Question: Do you have the appearances for CAPs?

Answer: No, I don't deal in appearances.  As long as Shane Spencer is 
putting up numbers similar to what he's capable of, then I could care 
less if he's 7 feet tall and asian.

legendary moderator/FAQ author.  This one is no exception.

calculate hitting ratings.  I don't follow his exact system, but I do 
compare to see what his ratings would be in comparison to mine.
