2012: Grade the Player Exercise

4 posts in this topic

Like last year, here is your chance to grade out and discuss each player on the roster for 2012. The grades should be given in consideration to the player's role, and not necessarily the players worth. In other words, Troy Patton could grade out higher than Wei-Yin Chen even though Chen was a more valuable pitcher but Patton may have more effective in his role.

This is a great place to posts stats, highlights and anything and will give us a good record to look back on in the future. Due to the late start, I will post three players a day and give each player two weeks to be voted on.

I'm fine with a late start. Hopefully we start this sometime in November next year! :)

As I said in multiple polling threads, I'm very shocked that only 2 of the core 5 relievers (JJ, O'Day, Strop, Ayala, Patton) got A's. In my mind, the bullpen's consistency was the number one contributing factor to the team's success in 2012 and I gave all 5 relievers with 50+ inning a grade of A in the polls. The bullpen wasn't great because of 2 men... it was great because of the consistency of all 5 plus a few others who chipped in when necessary.
