    97 range 13 glove SS

    Would this be a viable SS or a disaster ? His hitting is really good. Wondering if this is a good FA try.

    Like mak said, the guy should be good defender.

    I love guys with wild distributions. You could platoon him with another SS and compare the results after the season. That will show you a bit about how much the RA gains and how much the GL hurts.

    He will get to a TON of balls. The question really becomes, how many of those plays would a 70 RA 75 GL SS get to of those total chances? The 97 RA guy is going to get to nearly everything in his zone, BUT he also has a much higher chance to make errors on the standard plays as well. There's a diminishing point of returns in there someplace.

    TC-E= Successful Chances
    Vs
    TC-E= Successful Chances

    Best example I could find of the guy above is this guy:
    https://www.csfbl.com/player/3563606/seasonstats/

    For much of his career he had RA94 and GL8.

    During his 10 peak years (94/8) he averaged 1325 TC and 56 errors each season. That's still a .958 FPCT. That's right, a 96% success rate. His RNG was around 8.20 in that time period, easily 2.00 higher than a 70RA/75GL would hope to get with the same pitching staff.

    Bottom line. 75->94 RA is about a 33% ACTUAL increase in RNG, or about 320 more TC per season
    8->75GL is probably a 2% increase in FPCT, and maybe 25-30 less errors per season.

    Errors is the much smaller variable being affected. It's therefore the far less important variable. There is no point of diminishing returns for someone with an elite RA (>90), unless Brian codes in negative ratings.

    I had a guess that it was going to be this guy. I had the pleasure of managing him during my brief stay in remake.

    Some extra context, I have zero facts or research on this, but given he was on my team for at least a few of those seasons, I’d expect the pitching staff to be very light on PO so fewer K and more GB than FB, which will skew the RNG.

    If an 8 GL to a 75 GL is only a 2% increase in fielding percentage, then something definitely needs a tweak, that literally makes 0% sense. that would in effect make GL a mostly useless category.

    Re: 97 range 13 glove SS

    Well there you have it. Seems to be a legitimate conclusion.

    Frankly, someone with an 8GL represents some of the lower end of modern baseball players. The lowest FPCT I've seen in CSFBL is around .940 for a 3B (I glanced quickly). Edwin Encarnacion is the worst modern MLB player I could find at a glance: .934.

    I would say this is realistic in CSFBL and real-life. Glove is simply not that important at all. It's far more important, how many balls you can get to.

    However, as is mentioned above, RNG as a stat, is flawed in its ability to measure this. Groundball pitchers will favor infielders (think high FI/PO ratio) and flyball pitchers will favor higher RNG outfielders (think low FI/PO ratio).
