So what people are saying...'64 Howard A+/A/A+ (.998/6.89) as a catcher would do just fine as a 3B?

Can't remember the details, but biglenr ran a league last summer (I think) where we drafted all catchers. Many did really well at third base. But with Howard you'd be wasting your money on his arm, of course.

Have too..theme league. You think I could find a decent 3B within theme parameters but noooo.

Foxx (Catcher) A/B-/B (.992/5.08) (third base) D-/D- (.854/2.07)

Howard (catcher) A+/A/A+ (.998/6.89) (third base) (??????)

I also have Lew McCarty avail to cover off 30 games B/B/B+ (.989/5.25)

I think Im going to try Howard at 3rd (at least against non SB teams) see how it goes

if (ViewID == 0


else if (ViewID == 1


A catcher can't do any worse can he?

I have a rather specific question. if an OF with D defense (.951) is put at first. Will he play like a D first baseman, or will it affect fielding pct directly. Because that's a big difference, as D first basemen field at ~.970. and ive seen D- first basement as high as .968

I should clarify, my guess/understanding is that he is made to be a D first baseman, then be docked 2%... which would keep a .951 OF at a ~.95 first baseman
7/19/2009 10:16 PM
He will have the FLD% of a D firstbasemen and the 2% is deducted off of that.

What would a C/C SS and an A/C at 2B be at 3B?
7/22/2009 9:12 PM
The 2nd baseman would be better....whatever the penalty is they suffer the same one.

My guess is that the SS would be C-/C- and the the 2b would be B+/C-, they might be 1 notch worse though.

why all the mystery?

supply grades at all positions

Actually, it's the same guy. He has SS and 2B ratings but nothing at 3B.

Whatever position he played the most games from is where the penalty is taken from.
