topoftheworl's Future Rankings

Future rankings

Since I am in the middle of a rebuild I decided to see how I am coming along.  I took every player at every level and scored all of them 25 or under.  This is a flawed system, of course, because my advanced scouting sucks.  However, in theory my advanced scouting should be inaccurate in a way that does not bias any one player or team.  I broke up prospects into 5 tiers.  Tire one are the truly elite and tier 5 probably should never make the majors.  Teams got the most points for a Tier 1 players and a tiny amount for a tier 4 prospect (with nothing for tier 5).  I did not make a distinction between ML and minors since we all run our teams differently.  The total points don't mean anything except giving me a final way to rank teams.

Rank Team Total Points
1 San Francisco 18
1 Austin 18
1 Buffalo 18
4 Colorado Springs 17.5
4 New York 17.5
6 Salt Lake City 17
7 San Juan 16.5
8 Florida 14.5

20 Syracuse 7.5

24 Houston 5.5

26 Los Angeles 3.5
28 Louisville 3
28 Pawtucket 3
28 Tampa Bay 3
31 Pittsburgh 2
32 Dover 1.5

Thoughts: No tears for Dover since they have won back-to-back. SF and Buffalo are projected to make the playoffs. Atlanta is 11th and the 2nd best team overall in my projections.
