    Salary Algorithm

    Hey all,

    Recently came back after about 10 years away and catching up on some changes. One of the biggest ones seems to be a change in the salary algorithm. Considering a lot of my scouting was built around age, salary, and stat distribution, I’m really trying to understand the change. Can someone point me to resources for how this has changed? Give me some hints on where value might be found in drafts?

    Thanks.

    Re: Salary Algorithm

    A short answer is that age/salary is not very important anymore and scouting is much more important. If you have money invested in scouting, the ratings you see on a player card are projections of the player's true ratings. These get more accurate when you have more money in scouting. Here is some more about how it works.

    So, assuming that you've invested in scouting, you can trust that the numbers you see on the draft list are fairly close to the players' true ratings. Then it's just a matter of figuring out which ratings will work the best. You probably remember that information to some extent: DI/BA/SL are the most important for hitting, FI/SY are a great combination for pitchers, etc.

    Re: Salary Algorithm

    Current ratings probably impact salary the most. Middle infielders with range or pitchers with elite EN both got their salary bumped up. As far as scouting, you no longer need to extrapolate yourself in excel. The site does all that for you

    There's also a hidden "greed" rating that can randomize things a bit. Also, since you left, the defensive ratings have been given more salary love and will cause the salary to increase as well. Defensive specialists are no longer dirt cheap like they used to be.
