I made a sabermetric for ranking MLB The Show outfielders

SDS

As someone who is kinda nerdy and loves sabermetrics as well as, making spreadsheets I came up with a stat for ranking MLB The Show 19 outfielders.

How it works
I plug their in game hitting and fielding attributes into my spreadsheet and it weighs them with the formula. The most important stats (Vision, Arm Strength) are weighed higher and the less important (Bunt, Arm Accuracy) are weighed lower. After weighing each individual stat it adds them together into a new total, which is then divided by 10 just to make the data easier to understand and more consumable.

The Weighing
I weighed things based on how important they are in my opinion because I want to find the best cards for myself, I'll justify some of my weights though.

Contact (1.1, 1.05) Hitting stats vs. lefties are weighed higher simply because I believe lefty pitchers to be slightly better this year. With that being said, its still a tiny different.

Power (1.2, 1.15) Same explanation as the last one, I find power ever so slightly more important and scarce than contact is.

Vision (1.75) I believe vision to be more valuable than contact and overall the best with offense as a whole, the reason why many people see Tony Gwynn as endgame is his large PCI.

Disipline (0.8) I see disc as a useful stat, but still less than most, thus a value <1.

Clutch (0.75) It does help, but is less useful than discipline.

Bunt/Drag (40/20) I bunt a bit so I still included it, still the lowest valued offensive stat.

Fielding (1.3) Very useful stat for outfielders

Arm Strength (1.75) The most useful outfielder stat IMO

Arm Accuracy (0.75) Accuracy in 19 at least, is mostly about user imput. This is more important for IF than Outfielders.

Reaction (1) It actually is more important than you'd think for good jumps

Speed and Stealing (1.2/0.75) Speed is useful on both sides thus the higher rating. Stealing is less useful than most stats.

And finally, here are two of the best outfielders compared using OF Player Value.

This is just me nerding out because I wanted an excuse to make a spreadsheet

LF + CF + RF = 2 OF ?

I am sure somehow all calculations, once all figured, will be a RF from the current NYY as the top OF'er in the game right?

Accurate to the formula and the formula is based off opinion.

You asked if it was Judge at #1 and I answered that it was accurate

False, Chucks come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Seals on the other hand 🤷🏼‍♂️

Vision is more important than contact and power.... I’ll keep that in mind
