Im not sure, but generally wouldnt you be able to tell by looking at team salaries?

Team salaries only calculate $200,000 per AAA guy. The only way to tell who got what would be to identify all the players, but even then to get the real value to each team you'd also have to exclude wasted PA/IP.

The luck factor in random AAA can be significant, but generally teams get similar overall talent, especially when it's a bigger pool than 6/2. As far as I can tell, each team just gets X number of AAA from within the range of possible AAA salaries. As with any of the AAA levels, every team does not get the same total value of players.

If you really cared, you could probably make a good guess as to which it is by playing him until fatigue sets in, then figuring out whether he was on pace for 286 (Joyner's 260+10%) or 317 (Wertz's 288+10%) PA when he dipped below 100%. But there numbers are similar enough that it shouldn't matter much.

Good ideas. Josh, it probably won't get to that because my AAA Galarraga will get most of the ABs. Other than Joyner having a slightly higher OBP and slightly lower power, the two are practically the same, and either one would fill in only against a tough righty or if my regular AB is tired.

Some insight into Random AAA from the Live USA Federation League, which uses 12/10 Random. I looked only at hitters from 10 teams (120 players), so obviously it's a fairly small sample size, but the consistency is striking. Data is from the just-started season and the previous two, a range of 6-7 months.

All figures are RL player values, omitting players with multiple matches, from each of the 10 teams' set of Random AAA:
Average Salary Range: $2.01M-$2.56M
Highest Player Salary: $3.26M-$4.77M
Lowest Player Salary: $1.00M-$1.60M

The low salary per team was extremely consistent; 9 of the 10 were from $1,004,397-$1,158,134. The difference in high salary is much greater, but of the 120 players none is as high as $5M.

Avg   High  Low
$2,010,251 $4,766,443 $1,604,500
$2,031,248 $4,265,671 $1,007,496
$2,099,067 $3,665,910 $1,037,832
$2,215,710 $4,521,564 $1,101,644
$2,219,675 $4,559,491 $1,104,020
$2,230,628 $3,264,631 $1,014,164
$2,349,803 $4,593,071 $1,004,397
$2,374,904 $4,194,009 $1,063,044
$2,377,845 $3,416,061 $1,158,134
$2,555,376 $3,334,273 $1,147,596

I have found all of my players except for Patrick Ghaud.

Control - 1
Velocity - 10
Defense - D/B-
Effectiveness - 2
Role - RP
Stamina - D

Any help is appreciated.

It's gotta be 1962 Sam McDowell. Are you sure he is listed as an RP? There are two pitching roles listed when you click on a pitcher...one is his actual usage (SP or RP) and the other is how you currently have him slotted on your staff.

Thanks. I was a bit confused when I saw him listed as a RP, but you are right. Simple mistake.
