    Hey guys,

    I know there has been talk of one day moving to 20/80 scouting and off this 1-10 stuff. I know that 20/80 is potentially confusing and that being the prime reason we haven't moved to it. That said, I found this ESPN article that easily and clearly explains in layman's terms how it works. What do you all think about this?

    I was thinking the article would be a little more in depth when I clicked the link. I read and like it, makes sense.

    Im with you. It makes evaluating guys much more difficult personally.

    If it makes it more difficult, I'm all for it. I didn't realize it was an option. I just assumed more of a range = easier to figure out a guy's "true" rating.

    Not necessarily. 1-100 is the easiest. Then 1-20 and 1-10. 20-28 is middle of the pack in terms of difficulty. 1-5 and 2-8 are probably the most difficult

    Oh, so it would just be 2-8 and not actually 20-80? That makes a difference then lol.

    Hell I'd prefer 2-8 myself. 20-80 and 2-8 is what real MLB scouts use. Depends on which organization. Im sure ryalaman can butt in and impress us with his knowledge.

    Does the game do 20-80 like they do in real life (i.e. pretty much only in increments of 5 and usually in 10s) or does it give wonky ratings like telling us a pitcher has a 66 fastball?

    This will take effect during the preseason of 2014.

    You guys have no idea how happy I got when I read this thread! By far the 20-80 is the way to go. I am glad the league decided on this move.
