    Position Value Opinions

    Hey guys, I need some feedback from the people that actually know something about baseball (Considering I still have to google some of the terms). First of all, I need to know based on a 0.9 to 2.0 scale the proposed value of the positions of the players. Now we can do each individual position or determine it Infielder, Outfielder, Starting Pitcher, Relief Pitcher, Closer. Gimme some feedback guys and remember the quicker we come to a decision the quicker I can get our salaries together.

    Pitching is obviously the highest value position wise. When it comes to other defense I think people will target the best contact or power hitters, thats what I would do anyways. In this game I would take a good hitter over a good glove

    I would go in order (if each position had to have a different number):

    Starting Pitcher: 2.0
    Closer: 1.9
    Short Stop: 1.8
    Third Base: 1.7
    Center Field: 1.6
    Catcher: 1.5
    Relief Pitcher: 1.4
    Second base: 1.3
    Right Field: 1.2
    First base: 1.1
    Left Field: 1.0

    Sounds good. Keep in mind that the same rating can be used for another position. That helps spread it out more. I'm gonna put in Johnny clutch's suggestions and see how they look.

    I would go after peopel that can hit. It's not often even the worst outfielders drop a ball, but make sure you have a decently fast one, if they are slow, them ground balls can kill you.

    I would agree with this for the most part, except I think 2nd base is more valuable than a relief pitcher for sure. I'd put 2nd base right up with short stop personally. I'd also put value on a good CF over a good 3rd baseman too, but that's just my opinion.

    Ya 2nd baseman comes right after SS in this game. That is where the majority of base hits get through

    First base needs to get bumped way up. Power hitting first basemen exist on CPU rosters, and this should have a high value: 1.5

    The rest looks good to me.

    The lesser rated teams will have the ability to sign the best guys right? Some of these teams are so stacked already they don't need anybody

    What I'm going to do is set the salary cap at the highest team salary rounded to the next 1000
