Identifying AAA Players


This is an attempt to put the current state of knowledge together in one place in a concise form.

The credit for figuring out how the ratings work is not entirely known to me. The hitter ratings for Power, Speed and Stamina were known when I first started playing WIS.  Whoever cracked the Power rating deserves some special credit.  If anyone knows who is responsible, please post the information.
I figured out how the contact rating worked and toddcommish came up with the search strategy. I worked out the four pitcher ratings. The precise boundaries for one pitcher rating , Effectiveness, may still be subject to changes of a few hundreds. Effectiveness has no neat numerical boundaries or consistently sized groupings like the other ratings. The demarcation between Effectiveness 7 and 8 for example is someplace between 3.4696 and 3.4686. This and the logical, but confusing, behavior of the WIS search engine means that there will always be small overlaps in the search ranges for Effectiveness.

SEARCHING FOR AAA PLAYERS
 
I’ll state the obvious here for those who aren’t familiar with searching for AAA players. 


In the Draft Center set up a position player search and limit for batting side (R, L or S) and primary position for hitters or for pitchers set up a pitcher search and select RP or SP and right handed or left. For both hitters and pitchers set games to 0 and the hitter or pitcher salary range to fit the AAA level you received.  Then set up the stats used in the charts plus fielding and range.  This requires using the “advanced” search features of WIS and setting the user selectable search fields to PA/162, 1B/100AB, HR/100AB, speed,  fielding and range (plus arm for catchers) for hitters or to BB/100PA, K/100AB, ERC#, IP/G, fielding and range for pitchers. Enter the values from the charts into the appropriate fields and search away.

outstanding work Merkle. I never found the time to post updated charts, and to tell the truth haven't played a AAA league in quite a while. Might have to find one now.

Thanks, Merkle!

wow, I had missed that thread, thanks for the bump, mystery no more!

I did a search for one of my Triple AAA pitchers

If I'm understanding this right...Here's what I come up with.

That's quite a wide range of possibilities of who my Triple AAA pitcher is based off.

Am I understanding this correctly?

Well, right off the bat, you've got different fielding/range for these pitchers you've listed. What's your AAA pitcher's fielding/range? Look for an exact match.
6/24/2009 7:15 PM



"What's your AAA pitcher's fielding/range?"

That must be my problem :)

But,Where's is that information for a AAA pitcher?

I just see the 4 ratings on his information page.
6/24/2009 7:15 PM
Also, is it Below Average, Average, AA, or WAA?

The salaries will also shrink the pool.
6/24/2009 7:16 PM
Put him in a trade, and click fielding ratings.
6/25/2009 1:19 PM
What are the salary ranges on random AAA? Does everyone get the same total $$ amount of AAA or can some people get extremely lucky and have a $10M+ advantage?
