2008 Total Value Measures - Through July 23rd

I've created a new spreadsheet with current total value of players through July 23rd. My intention is to keep this updated weekly moving forward.

  • Total value estimates (in runs) for every MLB position player, based on hitting, fielding, and their position.
  • Fielding measures are based on the average runs saved according to zone rating and revised zone rating.
  • Pitchers are listed according to RAR (base runs saved above replacement) and FIP-Runs (a defense-independent pitch stat estimating runs saved above repalcement).
  • League differences are taken into account.
  • Closers get a leverage-based bonus (though it's admittedly rough).
