curious if you used season 21 or 22 for cochrane? we are in the playoff in season 22 so the reg season is finished. i am finally getting a handle on the league after 5-6 seasons private. we were initially a public league with high turnover, shoddy ownership, lopsided deals, etc. This past season we returned everyone from season 21. Albeit there is some parity, Florida is incredible and San Diego is really bad, but I won't as commish remove a guy from the league who has been there for 13 seasons (from before we were private) because he enjoys the game but is not very successful at it, that is just wrong IMHO... The most important statistics in a league to me are owner enjoyment and turnover. As a commish if the owners in my league enjoy being a part of it they return season after season and that continuity makes it a lot of fun. That is by no means a stab at you dmurph as we appreciate the work you put into this. At the end of the day if my owners return ranking are irrelevant because noone else is joining!
I used season 21. I just plugged in season 22 and it moved Cochrane up just 1 spot.
The rankings arent really a measurement of owner enjoyment. I know Ive been in worlds that are not competitive, have major tankers, and 120+loss teams and every body is happy as a clam.
These are meant to be more a ranking of comptitiveness (measured by looking at the top and bottom teams) and overall quality (pitching and fielding measurements)
The criteria seems to be really good at measuring the very top worlds and the very worst. Theres alot of room in the middle for debate amongst the worlds. I feel my next update will be an improbvement at measuring the teams in the middle.
