I'm almost finished with the rankings of HBD worlds. The rankings will be posted tomorrow morning. I expect and welcome criticism. At first glance, I think they look pretty good. There are a couple worlds that I think probably rank two high, and a few that are lower than Id expect. Initially Im just looking at the most recent seasons--as I bring in previus season data (weighted less than the latest season) I think those things will work themselves out.

The rankings are up. 

I looked at the last completed season only - I may look at the latest 3 seasons eventually--giving more weight to the last season

The following factors were looked at.

1. Parity - Leagues were asigned a score based on the best and worst teams.For example, a league with 5 100+ win teams and 5 100+ loss teams, wouldnt fare well in my ranking system. The worse the bottom teams are, and the more dominant the top teams are, the more it affects the rankings.

2. Fielding - Good owners dont play fielders out of position. I ranked worlds based on +/- fielding stats.

3. Pitching - The best worlds generally have reasonable eras. Most worlds are bunched very closely in average era. The best worlds will gain a ranking advantage by having the lowest overall ERAs and the worlds with horrid eras are penalized.

lol wow Duff beer is broken big time!  I wonder how many teams are aliases?  Id bet at least 5 looking at the dominance of the top 5 teams there... and to have a team that was below .200 last season is pretty sick too....
