E-Mail: rashidi@aol.com or johnmarkisch@hotmail.com

NOTE: My AOL e-mail is currently inaccessible, so please e-mail only my 
hotmail account.  Thank you.

NOTE #2: There has been a growing demand for me to make my roster file 
accessible because of how time consuming it is to manually update 
rosters with (or without) this guide.  I have explored using gaming 
devices (Max Drive, Sharkport, etc) to distribute my file but it is 
just too time consuming and a pain, not to mention I’m not very 
interested in paying money so other people can use my work.  So, my 
solution is…
IF A PERSON SENDS ME THEIR MEMORY CARD AND FIVE DOLLARS, I WILL SEND IT 
BACK TO THEM WITH MY ROSTER FILE ADDED.  The reason for sending the 
money is I will be shipping your card back to you via UPS.  Will I 
profit off of this?  Marginally, but I’m also providing a service, and 
it’s much cheaper for you than spending 25 to 30 dollars on those rip-
off devices mentioned above.  If interested in this offer, e-mail me 
for the details.

NOTE #3: Until I otherwise note, I only have a Playstation 2.  PLEASE 
DO NOT SEND ME X-BOX MEMORY UNITS.

I. Introduction

Welcome to the Player Rating FAQ, written by Rashidi.  The purpose of 
this FAQ is to update the ratings of the players in the game, to make 
them as accurate as possible by taking multiple factors into account, 
and to educate readers on MLB history.

Any updates to player ratings or major changes to the FAQ will be 
listed in the Updates section.  Check it whenever a new version comes 
out.

III. How YOU can help with this FAQ

If you want to assist me with anything in this FAQ or have any comments 
on existing information, please do not hesitate to e-mail me.

Since Major League Baseball is so vast, it is hard to keep track of so 
many things going on at once.  One of the main things I will be 
focusing on is obviously the player ratings.  Hitters are easier to 
rate than pitchers, because there aren’t really any websites that 
breakdown the effectiveness of their pitches, you basically have to see 
the pitcher in action.

Thus, I am always taking suggestions and information based on the 
pitches that a pitcher throws.  How good their control is, how high/low 
the velocity is, how much movement, etc.  Not all of the pitchers in 
MVP have their correct pitch types.  Last year Braden Looper had a 
curveball, and now he does not (he has a Fastball, Splitter, and 
Cutter, which I believe are the three main pitches of his repertoire).  
It is probably more common for younger pitchers to have faulty pitch 
sets because they are still learning and incorporating pitches into 
their game plan.  The Mets tried to force Jae Weong Seo to start using 
a 2-Seam Fastball, but it didn’t go over very well.  I’m not sure if 
Seo dropped the pitch, but if he still uses it I’ll add it.  I’m 
looking for stuff like that when it comes to pitchers, and there’s only 
so much ground I can cover at once.

Another thing I am looking for information on is batting stances, 
jersey numbers, what kind of glove a player uses, etc.  I personally am 
not at all interested in stuff like that, but many other people are.  I 
don’t really look for things like that, so any changes that I make in 
those areas would be of the obvious kind.  So most of the changes in 
those departments will be from other people submitting them to me.  I 
will be properly crediting people who do contribute to this guide, so 
don’t worry, I’m not going to steal information you send me and claim 
it as my own.

At present time I do not fully understand the nature of Batter 
Tendencies.  If someone could investigate and explain them to me, that 
would be great.  One of the difficulties with editing them is that 
there isn’t really any good source of information on what players are 
good/bad against certain pitch types.  The obvious cases (players that 
cant hit breaking pitches to save their life) are easy to identify.  
For the moment, it’s best to assume (hope) that EA got the majority of 
these ratings right, or at least as close to accurate as one can hope.  
This won’t stop me from editing them if I find good cause, but I don’t 
anticipate a cause in the immediate future.

Version 1.3 (6/22/05)
I have to apologize; I haven’t had nearly the time I anticipated having 
when I started this guide.  I’ve also worked extensively on my NBA2K 
FAQ of late, making the final changes to most players.  I’ve barely 
been able to watch baseball this season, I pretty much have only been 
updating like once every 2 weeks, when I actually get a chance to sit 
down and watch a baseball game.

One of the things you might notice is that I’m in the process of 
reformatting my guide, to make it more visually appealing and have each 
player take up less space (so it doesn’t take three years to scroll 
from one team to the next).  Since most of you are looking at this 
guide for player ratings (especially since I have barely changed 
anything else due to lack of information or assistance) the focus of 
the guide should be on them.  Once I get everything completely 
reformatted, the player editing on more teams than just the Mets should 
pick up pace.

Added Brian Roberts, Mark Bellhorn, John Olerud, Jay Payton, Ken 
Griffey Jr., Brian Daubach, Lastings Milledge, Gerald Williams, Chris 
Woodward, and Albert Pujols.
Edited Miguel Cairo, Mike Cameron, Victor Diaz, Cliff Floyd, Pedro 
Martinez, Kazuo Matsui, Doug Mientkiewicz, Mike Piazza, Jose Reyes, 
David Wright, Bubba Crosby, and Jason Giambi.

Version 1.2 (5/9/05)
Added Miguel Cairo, Danny Garcia, Aubrey Huff, Alex S. Gonzalez, Joe 
Hietpas, Randy Johnson, Bubba Crosby, Heath Bell, and Brett Myers.
Edited Steve Trachsel, Aaron Heilman, Grant Roberts, Victor Diaz, 
Carlos Beltran, Mike Piazza, Kazuo Matsui, Cliff Floyd, and David 
Wright.
Created Manny Aybar, and Dae-Sung Koo.  Edited John Franco.

Version 1.1 (4/8/05)
Added Braden Looper, Cliff Floyd, Aaron Heilman, Eric Valent, Grant 
Roberts, Joe McEwing, Andy Dominique, Jason Giambi, Pedro Martinez, 
Roberto Alomar, Derek Jeter, Vladimir Guerrero, and Alex Rodriguez.
Edited Jae Weong Seo, and Victor Diaz.
Created Royce Ring.  Edited Mike Glavine.

Version 1.0 (3/8/05)
Put out the layout of the FAQ to get it up there.
Most of you will probably notice a Mets theme among the players so far.  
That’s my team, so I know them best, which means they’re the easiest to 
put up (and probably the most accurate).
Added Esix Snead, Carlos Beltran, David Wright, Kazuo Matsui, Jose 
Reyes, Steve Trachsel, Mike Cameron, Jae Weong Seo, Mike Piazza, Doug 
Mientkiewicz, Victor Diaz, Jason Phillips, and Jeff Duncan.
Created John Franco, Mike Glavine, Jeremy Hill, Prentice Redman, Jerrod 
Riggan, Jason Roach, and Pat Strange.

VI. How do the ratings work?

First, what are the rating categories? 
(NOTE: What I am listing the rating as will be in parenthesize).

Highest Hitter Value: 2575
Highest Pitcher Value: 3465 (6040 w/hitter ratings)

Offensive Value (Offensive Value)
Contact vs RHP (RHP Contact)
Contact vs LHP (LHP Contact)
Power vs RHP (RHP Power)
Power vs LHP (LHP Power)
Bunting (Bunting)
Plate Discipline (Discipline)
Durability (Durability)
Speed (Speed)
Stealing Tendency (Stealing)
Baserunning Ability (Baserunning)
Fielding (Fielding)
Range (Range)
Throwing Strength (Strength)
Throwing Accuracy (Accuracy)

Pitching Value (Pitching Value)
Stamina (Stamina)
Pickoff (Pickoff)
Fastball Overall (Fastball Overall)
Fastball Control (Fastball Control)
Fastball Velocity (Fastball Velocity)
PitchX Overall
PitchX Movement
PitchX Trajectory
PitchX Control
PitchX Velocity

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, what do the ratings do?

Offensive Value – A stat that was in previous MVPs used to determine 
how useful a player is on offense.  Default Offensive Value is 100, and 
goes up in intervals of 33.  The intervals are 55, 60, 70, 80, 85, 90, 
91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, and 99, and the categories that affect 
offensive value are power, contact, and speed.  For example if a player 
has 70 in both contact areas, 60 in one power rating and 80 in the 
other, with a 93 speed, this player would have an offensive value of 
793. (21 intervals times 33 equals 693, plus 100 equals 793).
Contact vs RHP – Determines how easy/hard it will be to hit a pitch 
made by a right-handed pitcher.
Contact vs LHP - Determines how easy/hard it will be to hit a pitch 
made by a left-handed pitcher.
Power vs RHP – Determines how hard hits will be on contact against 
right handed pitching.
Power vs LHP - Determines how hard hits will be on contact against left 
handed pitching.
Bunting – A player’s skill at sacrifice bunts or bunting for a hit.
Plate Discipline – Determines how patient a player is at the plate, 
between taking pitches, not swinging at bad pitches, and not striking 
out.
Durability – A player’s resistance to injury and fatigue.
Speed – How fast a player is on the basepaths.
Stealing Tendency – How frequently a player tries to steal a base.
Baserunning Ability – A player’s skill at rounding the basepaths, may 
be related to sliding ability and not getting picked off while trying 
to steal.
Fielding – The lower the number, the higher the red bar in the fielding 
gauge.
Range – How much ground a player covers defensively.
Throwing Strength – How hard/fast a player’s throws the ball on 
defense.
Throwing Accuracy – How accurate a player’s throws are on defense.

Pitching Value – Similar to Offensive Value, except the rating 
categories that affect it are Stamina, Fastball Control, Fastball 
Velocity, and the Control ratings of any additional pitches.
Stamina – How long a pitcher can pitch before getting tired.
Pickoff – How effective a pitcher is at catching runners trying to 
steal.
Fastball Overall – The value of the pitcher’s fastball, determined by 
control and velocity.
Fastball Control – Determines the accuracy of a pitcher’s fastball.  
Fastball Velocity – Determines how fast a pitcher’s fastball is thrown.
PitchX – X stands for the pitching number (#2-5).  The possible pitch 
types are the Changeup, Curveball, Knuckleball
PitchX Overall – The value of a pitcher’s non-fastball pitches (#2-5 if 
applicable), determined by the pitches’ movement, control, and 
velocity.
PitchX Movement – Determines how far a pitch will move after being 
thrown.  For instance a changeup with low movement will go straight 
ahead, while a changeup with more movement will drop a bit more.
PitchX Trajectory – Determines the direction a pitch will move after it 
is thrown.  Not technically a rating, but still affects a pitch.  A 
Curveball with 12-6 Trajectory is very different than one with 10-4 
Trajectory.  The numbers in trajectory are symbolic of those on a 
clock.  12-6 is a completely vertical drop, while 10-4 is more of a 
diagonal.  Different pitches have different trajectory types.
PitchX Control - Determines the accuracy of a pitcher’s secondary 
pitch.
PitchX Velocity – Determines how fast a pitcher’s fastball is thrown.  
Unlike a fastball (which is obviously designed to be fast), Velocity 
does not necessarily mean “better”.  Since part of pitching is trying 
to fool the batter, using pitches with different speeds will help keep 
them off balance.  The effectiveness of a 75-MPH Curveball and a 70-MPH 
Curveball depends on the other pitches used in conjunction with it.

VII. The ratings

Player ratings are currently alphabetized by team, and then by last 
name.

If you want to find the ratings for specific players, Ctrl + F is your 
best friend.  Seriously.  If you ever complain about not being able to 
find something in an FAQ, it means you are computer illiterate.  Ctrl + 
F is very easy, it is one of the more basic functions of using a 
computer.  Press the Ctrl key.  Hold it.  Then press F.  Then enter the 
name of something you are searching for.  Make sure you can spell it 
correctly.  You don’t even need the full name.  If you’re looking for 
Mike Piazza, you can put “Piazza”, or even “Pia” and get the result you 
are looking for.  If you’re looking for someone with a common last name 
like Gonzalez, you can put the last letter of that player’s first name 
and search.  For instance if you want to find Juan Gonzalez, then 
searching for “Juan Gon” or even “n Gon” would likely bring you to him.

NOTES
The 2004 American League MVP came at a total bargain for the Angels 
compared to other free agents.  Nobody was willing to offer Guerrero 
more than 70 million because of concerns about his back, but then the 
following winter people were throwing cash in the face of borderline 
players like Russ Ortiz.  The Mets were unwilling to give Guerrero more 
than three guaranteed years, but yet they were willing to give Carlos 
Beltran for almost twice the money, seven guaranteed years, and a full 
no-trade clause?  Meanwhile they already had a center fielder.  If the 
Mets had an outfield of Floyd/Cameron/Guerrero instead of 
Floyd/Beltran/Cameron they might actually be getting superstar 
production from the number three spot in the batting order, while 
Cameron’s offensive production is much more serviceable from a center 
fielder than a right fielder.

NOTES
Kotchman has great patience at the plate, as he has more walks than 
strikeouts in his minor league career.  It’s carried over to the majors 
too - in his first 20 ABs in the majors he has 5 walks, and 0 
strikeouts (and 3 of his 4 hits were homers, though he did not have 
great homer totals in the minors).  Kotchman is also a future gold 
glover at first base.  Looks a lot like the Mark Grace/John Olerud type 
of player.

NOTES
Simply annihilated AAA pitching this year, hitting .354 with great 
doubles power.  Jackson isn’t good defensively though, and will 
probably end up being a first baseman.  However, for whatever reason 
the Diamondbacks decided to give Tony Clark a 2-year extension based on 
the fluke season he’s having.  Why?  It’s just going to impede the 
progress of Jackson.  Jackson may become trade bait if the Diamondbacks 
feel they want to fill another area of need.

NOTES
Francoeur is a 5-tool prospect climbing the Braves organization ladder.  
Even though he skipped Triple-A and didn’t hit particularly amazing at 
Double-A, Francoeur has been an absolute monster for the Braves since 
being called up.  He has hit for a high average and power as pitchers 
continue to test his bat (finally drew his first walk after hitting 10 
homers), and has many outfield assists as runners continue to test his 
arm (at a rate of an assist per 30 innings).

NOTES
Chipper Jones is one of the best switch hitters in baseball history, as 
he currently ranks fifth all-time in home runs by a switch hitter. 
Inexplicably, Chipper did not make the all-star team during his MVP 
season.

NOTES
Former NFL player with the Atlanta Falcons.  Jordan looks done as a 
major leaguer, the beating his body has taken from 3 years as an NFL 
player and 13 years as a baseball player has led to him being unable to 
take the field on a daily basis.

NOTES
Snead is a career minor leaguer that doesn’t project as a major 
leaguer.  He has major league speed and can steal a base, but he 
struggles to bat .250 at the minor league level.  He can help a major 
league team in need of an injury replacement as a pinch runner and 
defensive replacement, but that’s the extent of his abilities.

NOTES
Palmeiro was a lock for the Hall of Fame before he became the first big 
name to fail a steroid-related drug test.  An example of piss poor 
voters in the media, Palmeiro was voted a gold glover at first base 
despite playing only 28 games there in 1999.  He played 135 games at DH 
and even won the Silver Slugger as a DH, yet the darling media that are 
so well educated felt he should be the top defensive first baseman.

NOTES
In my opinion the 2002 AL MVP should have been Alex Rodriguez.  Tejada 
had a .308 average and only 34 home runs.  His OPS was a paltry .861.  
But since the A’s were a playoff team (mostly due to their great 
pitching) somebody had to get the award, because god forbid they give 
it to the best player (and what did the MVP do when he got to the 
playoffs?  He batted .143, totaling 3 hits and 7 strikeouts).  
Fortunately the lash back of giving it to the weakest MVP candidate in 
years (Tejada) is what led to A-Rod getting the award the following 
year.  MVP should go to the best player.  They already have awards for 
so-so players on great teams; it’s called a World Series ring.  I will 
say that Tejada was very underrated until he got that MVP.  He was 
viewed as the next best guy after the big three (A-Rod/Jeter/Nomar), 
but ended up being MVP before any of them.  Since A-Rod has moved to 
third base, Tejada has taken his place as the best SS in the AL.  And 
since he’s younger, he’s entering his prime and putting up the best 
numbers of his career.  Jeter and Nomar on the other hand are 31 and 32 
years old respectively and are not the players they were in the late 
90s.

Alex Cora’s 18-pitch duel with Matt Clement last year was one of the 
best at bats I’ve ever seen.  Cora fouled off pitch after pitch before 
hitting a two run homer.

NOTES
People thought Burnitz was a poor replacement for Sosa because he owed 
his great stats to Coors Field.  Hogwash.  Thus far Burnitz has not 
only outperformed Sosa this season, but he has exceeded Sosa’s 
production from last season.

NOTES
After putting up uninspiring numbers for the last five years, Garland 
finally broke out this year.  In past years he was held back by his 
control problems, but this year he is on pace to throw a paltry 40 
walks in 220 innings.

NOTES
Threw a no-hitter, but also walked nine batters and hit one.  I don’t 
really see what’s so good about a performance like that if you allowed 
11 men on base.  The Padres had two men on base in four of his nine 
innings pitched.  Meanwhile Mike Mussina was perfect until Carl Everett 
singled with 2 outs in the ninth, but Burnett goes down in history for 
having a “no-hitter”.  That’s baseball for you.

Plays gold glove caliber defense at shortstop, hits for a low average,

NOTES
Moehler has been injured and ineffective the last few years.  The last 
time he pitched this well was back in 2000.  Moehler is still the same 
pitcher he was before; the only reasons his ERA is lower is he’s 
pitching in a friendlier league (NL pitchers tend to have lower ERA’s 
than AL pitchers) and he’s a ground ball pitcher pitching at Florida’s 
ground ball friendly Pro Player Stadium.

NOTES
Currently making Houston fans forget about Carlos Beltran.  One of the 
fastest players in baseball, he favorably compares to Juan Pierre.  
Taveras is right handed (not left like Pierre), but he has a much 
better arm in center than Pierre does.

NOTES
A decent young reliever, the Mets gave away Wheeler to the Astros for a 
non-prospect.  Wheeler was lights out for the Astros in the playoffs, 
and he has carried that over to this year.  Wheeler is a setup man with 
an ERA under 2.00, a great K rate, and great K/BB rate.

NOTES
“Super Joe” McEwing is capable of playing any position on defense, and 
does so annually.  He was a catcher in the minor leagues, but he has 
played every other position in the majors.  Super Joe didn’t make the 
Mets this year, as there are many younger and more productive middle 
infielders on the roster.  He signed a minor league contract with 
Kansas City.

NOTES
Phillips had a horrible 2004 season at the plate, but should rebound 
from that this season.  In his own words, “Maybe I’m not a .300 hitter, 
but I know I’m not a .220 hitter either”.  He was traded to the Dodgers 
for Kazuhisa Ishii, in a move that works out for both teams, and both 
players.  The Dodgers were able to dump salary, and rid themselves of 
Ishii who was struggling to stay in the rotation.  They were able to 
upgrade their starting catcher position.  The Mets were able to get a 
replacement for the injured Steve Trachsel.  Ishii wins because he is 
now guaranteed a spot in the rotation, and gets to work with pitching 
coach Rick Peterson.  Phillips wins because he is up for arbitration at 
the end of the year. He’ll have plenty of ABs to prove not only that he 
is capable of starting, but also he’ll be playing for a big raise.

improve his changeup if he wants to stick in the big leagues as a 
quality reliever.

NOTES
Beltran is the latest Scott Boras client to cash in on a big contract.  
The definition of a Five-Tool player, he nearly had a 40-40 season, and 
hit homer after homer during the playoffs.  He probably will have 
slightly diminished success at Shea, but should still be the best 
center fielder they’ve had in years.

NOTES
Benson has ace stuff but has never been able to put it together due to 
injuries.  He’s got the hottest wife in all of baseball.  He completely 
wore down in the second half, which should lead to concerns about 
whether his arm can handle pitching for much longer.

NOTES
Cairo had a career year last season with the Yankees, but for whatever 
reason, they decided to go with Tony Womack as their starting second 
baseman.  However, it may make more sense since the team called up 
Robinson Cano, and moved Womack to the outfield, where he has more 
experience than Cairo.

NOTES
Cameron has monster power, and just needs to make contact to show it.  
He once had 4 home runs in a single game, and nearly had 5 (he was 
walked in his fifth AB).  In a game against the Expos in 2004, Cameron 
had a verbal exchange with a fan that was taunting him.  The fan said 
he’d go back to his seat if Cameron hit a home run.  Cameron hit a home 
run.  The fan stayed until Cameron’s next AB and then started to go 
back to his seat, but Cameron told him not to leave.  He told the fan 
to stay there and “watch this”, and Cameron hit another home run.  So 
certainly Cameron has excellent power, probably 50-homer power if he 
hit for a higher average.  But since he doesn’t make contact enough, he 
has low batting averages and high strikeout totals.  He isn’t a free 
swinger, as he draws a high amount of walks, he’s just not a good 
contact hitter.  Even though he has good patience, he still chases his 
share of breaking pitches, which leads to his high strikeouts.  Cameron 
is also capable of stealing 30 bases, which is actually quite high 
since he doesn’t get on base as often as most top of the order players.  
He stole 22 bases on a .319 OBP last year.  Ichiro by comparison stole 
36 bases on a .414 OBP last year, with over 200 more ABs.  Cameron had 
61 extra base hits to Ichiro’s 37 (it’s easier to steal on a single), 
so clearly Cameron is very aggressive on the basepaths when he gets 
there.  But enough with breaking down his 30/30 potential and offensive 
contributions, Cameron is known for his defensive capabilities.  He is 
a gold glove caliber outfielder with excellent range, and despite 
having a sub par season defensively, it was still enough to vastly 
improve the Mets outfield defense.  The Mets signing of Carlos Beltran 
moves Cameron to right field, a move he is not happy with, but one he 
and the Mets could benefit from.  Beltran/Cameron in the outfield could 
be reminiscent of Cameron/Ichiro.  As Joe Torre will tell you, pitching 
and defense win championships.  The Mets have a deep starting rotation, 
and having two gold glove caliber outfielders (as well as a gold glove 
caliber first baseman and other solid infielders) could spell good 
things for the organization.  It’s clear that many of Cameron’s 
abilities stem from him being such an impressive athlete, which could 
spell a quick end for his days as a starter if injuries become 
problematic.

NOTES
Diaz was a prospect acquired in the Jeromy Burnitz trade.  He has hit 
well in the minors at every level, but does not really have a true 
defensive position.  He came up as a 2B but switched to the outfield 
when he got traded to NY.  He’s shown ability to hit at every level in 
the minors, and 6 of his 15 hits in the majors were for extra bases (3 
doubles, 3 homers).  But until the Mets trade Floyd or Cameron, Diaz 
will be stuck in the minors or on the bench.

NOTES
Duncan had early success in a 2003 call up with the Mets, but pitchers 
quickly figured him out.  He has not yet learned how to hit at the AAA 
level, and he likely will be stuck in the minors until he does so.  He 
has excellent fundamentals, but just needs to learn how to hit the 
ball.

NOTES
Floyd is currently having a career year.  If he stays healthy he is 
well on pace to break his career mark of 31 home runs.  He is also 
playing a very good left field.  Not bad for a guy who was almost 
traded during the offseason.

NOTES
Was on pace to record 300 career wins, but that was before he signed 
with the Mets.  The porous defense he suffered through in his first two 
seasons with the team may have ultimately cost him a chance for that 
milestone.

NOTES
Long-time closer for Cincinnati, but he has lost a lot of velocity due 
to being out of shape.  The team cut him and he signed with the Mets, 
but he has yet to regain that velocity.

NOTES
Heilman is a former top prospect that has been unable to put it 
together at the major league level.  Since the Mets have such a deep 
starting rotation, and already have other established players waiting 
in the wings (Jae Weong Seo, Matt Ginter, Tyler Yates) Heilman is 
likely to be traded (possibly for some relief help).  The Cubs, 
Diamondbacks, and Pirates are said to be interested, so keep your eyes 
peeled on how the situation develops.  Mets pitching coach Rick 
Peterson recently had Heilman change his pitching delivery to a 3/4 
angle, as he thinks it will allow Heilman to be more consistent.  After 
having a bad outing, Heilman recently threw a 1-hit shutout, but then 
followed it up with another bad performance.  The stuff is there, it 
just needs to be harnessed.

NOTES
Hernandez is a former closer who struggled in setup roles with the 
Braves in Phillies, but has become almost a second closer with the 
Mets.  He’s one of the few pitchers I can think of that has pitched 
better AFTER leaving Atlanta.

NOTES
Koo is a 35-year-old rookie from South Korea.  He’s serving as a lefty 
specialist in the Mets bullpen.  Koo hit a double off Randy Johnson.  
In one of the odder baseball sequences of the year, Jose Reyes bunted, 
and when the Yanks threw him out at first, Koo took off for home 
because nobody was covering the plate.  He was able to score with a 
crazy slide.  He also struck out all three batters he faced that day.  
Unfortunately, Koo ended up injuring himself on the slide and had to go 
on the disabled list.

NOTES
Looper won a World Series in 2003 as the setup man for the Florida 
Marlins.  He was the closer prior to the acquisition of Ugueth Urbina.  
He signed with the Mets to be their closer.  He had a good year in 2004 
but has had his struggles in 2005, as his K rates are way down from the 
previous year.  As a groundball pitcher, his stuff isn’t quite good 
enough to be considered closer stuff.

the 90s, accomplished the goal he set when he signed with Boston.  He 
brought them a championship.  While Pedro wasn’t as effective as he 
usually was in 2004, he is now making a switch to the NL at the right 
time.  NL pitchers seem to have a full ERA less than most AL pitchers, 
partly because of the DH, and partly because they don’t go as deep into 
ball games thanks to them being pinch hit for.  Martinez went longer 
than 7 innings only 4 times last year.  That also means the Mets 
bullpen will have to be great for him to get some wins (and the offense 
will have to provide more runs, although Pedro is used to not getting 
run support).

NOTES
Matsui was a highly touted shortstop out of Japan, but flopped in NY.  
A gold glover on Japan’s artificial turf, Matsui struggled to adjust to 
grass.  He also failed as a leadoff hitter, with a poor K/BB ratio, and 
swung for power at the top of the lineup rather than for average.  To 
his credit, Matsui picked up his batting around May/June when a flaw 
was noticed in his swing, and he became good at slapping balls into 
left for singles.

NOTES
Similar to Jason Phillips, Mientkiewicz had a down year at the plate.  
He is one of the best defensive first basemen in the league, and a good 
contact hitter that lacks home run power.  Mientkiewicz was ninth in 
the AL in OBP in 2003, and had an OPS over 800 in 3 of the last 5 
years, so he’s clearly capable of being a productive offensive player, 
especially at the bottom of the order.  Considering the Mets only 
average three players with an OPS over 800 per year, anything they get 
from Mientkiewicz will be gravy.  At worst, he’s got Todd Zeile’s bat 
with a vastly better glove.

NOTES
Moreno, once considered the Royals closer of the future, has had his 
career decimated by injuries.  Last year Moreno had a 3.38 ERA (3-1, l 
save) with a good K/BB ratio out of the bullpen for the Mets last 
season before injuries again took their toll.  He’ll be looked at to 
reproduce that as the Mets bullpen is unproven and shallow this year.  
Unfortunately, he’ll have to wait since he’s still recovering from 
shoulder surgery.  Moreno was recently cleared to start pitching again 
in Double A.

NOTES
Piazza is the best hitting catcher in baseball history.  Last season he 
became the all-time leader in home runs among catchers.  Sadly his 
career has taken a sharp decline, just as it did to Johnny Bench.  
Piazza was once a lock to hit at least .300, now he hasn’t hit that in 
four years.

NOTES
The young Reyes is quickly improving, but desperately needs a full 
season of health if he hopes to break out.  He also needs to learn how 
to draw a walk.  He could become one of the best top of the order men 
in recent memory if this happens, especially in a Met offense that has 
been built around speed (Reyes/Matsui/Beltran/Wright are likely the 1-4 
hitters in the coming future).

NOTES
Riggan pitched effectively for the Mets out of the bullpen in 2001, but 
was included in the Roberto Alomar trade and sent to Cleveland.  He 
later returned to the Mets, but they sold him days later to a Japanese 
team.  Riggan is back with the Mets on a minor league contract, but he 
has yet to pitch due to injury.

NOTES
Ring is a young setup man the Mets acquired from the White Sox in the 
Roberto Alomar trade.  He is expected to make his major league debut 
this season.  He is similar to Mike Stanton but depends on his Slider 
more than his Curveball.  Ring was once a fireballer, but has lost some 
velocity on his fastball.  He used to throw it 95+ MPH in college, but 
now he throws it 91-93 MPH.  He’s since become a breaking ball pitcher.  
He can close part time (ala Stanton), but not full time because he 
doesn’t have a plus fastball anymore.

NOTES
Seo was formerly a top-pitching prospect, but he lost two years of his 
career to Tommy John surgeries while in the minors.  He has had to 
compensate for his loss in velocity by becoming a control pitcher.  
Unfortunately, Seo only has a three-pitch repertoire, one that hitters 
usually catch on to by their third AB.  That probably makes Seo a long 
reliever until he adds another pitch to his arsenal.  The Mets tried to 
teach Seo how to throw a 2-Seam Fastball but were unsuccessful, and 
with a solid starting rotation one would think that Seo is not in their 
long-term plans unless injuries push him to the forefront.

NOTES
Trachsel’s career came to a crossroads in his first season with the 
Mets.  He started off the 2001 season with a 1-6 record and an 8.24 
ERA.  Trachsel accepted a demotion to AAA Norfolk.  He made three 
starts going 2-0, and also threw a minor league no-hitter (7 innings).  
Trachsel finished off the year with an 11-13 record and a 4.46 era.  He 
was the team’s best pitcher for the rest of the season as the team 
nearly snuck into the playoffs.  Since 2001, Trachsel has recorded more 
wins than any other Met pitcher, and has thrown 4 shutouts in the last 
4 years.  It looks like Trachsel could be at a career crossroads again 
though.  He is going to miss at least half of the season, perhaps the 
entire season.  If Trachsel had pitched a certain number of innings 
this year (something he was practically considered a lock to do) it 
would have activated another year on his contract after this one.  Now 
it looks like he’s going to be a free agent coming off a year of 
injury, and will be entering his 35th year.  There are plenty of 
pitchers that don’t make it back when they reach that age (Denny 
Neagle, Shane Reynolds, etc) so Trachsel’s days as an effective starter 
(and his days with the Mets) could soon be over.

NOTES
Valent is a younger version of John Vander Wal.  I don’t think Mets 
fans would have predicted that Valent would have been their second best 
hitter OPS-wise on the 2004 season, but that’s how things ended up.  
Valent was the eighth player in Mets history to hit for the Cycle.

NOTES
Wright was one of the best rookies in 2004.  He was in the top 10 among 
rookies in most offensive categories despite only playing 69 games.  He 
had the most homers for a Met rookie after the all-star break since 
Darryl Strawberry.

NOTES
Zambrano was the pitcher the Mets acquired for young gun Scott Kazmir.  
His stuff is frequently described as “filthy” or “nasty” but he’s had 
terrible control… until this season.  His strikeout rates are down, but 
he’s using his stuff to get more ground balls.

NOTES
DePaula had Tommy John surgery in 2004.  He has the best changeup in 
the Yankees’ minor league system, and an inconsistent slider.  The 
Yanks are hoping he can become a Ramiro Mendoza type player.

NOTES
Giambi had a terrible 2004 season, much of it shrouded in mystery and 
conspiracy.  It was leaked that Giambi gave grand jury testimony that 
indicated he took steroids, and he should figure to be a lightning rod 
for criticism this season.  One thing I have always argued though as 
that Giambi should have been AL MVP in 2001, his best season (he was AL 
MVP in 2000).  Ichiro was the AL MVP in 2001, based mostly on media 
hype than his actual production.  Seattle had a great year as a team 
that year, but a lot of this had to do with Bret Boone having a career 
year, as well as other notable players putting it together.  Ichiro led 
the league in batting average, but he wasn’t even top ten in OBP.  
Giambi led the league in OBP, SLG, OPS, Doubles, Walks, Extra Base 
Hits, and Times on Base.  However, he was “only” second in batting 
average, which I guess is why he clearly was not better than Ichiro.  
Ichiro only had 48 extra base hits in 2001.  Giambi on the other hand 
had 47 DOUBLES.  Ichiro did lead the AL with 56 steals, but I’ll take 
139 walks over 56 steals.  Of course, people usually say that “MVP 
doesn’t go to the best player, it goes to the most valuable”.  Well, 
not for nothing, but the A’s won only 14 fewer games than the Mariners, 
despite the fact that the only other player on the team that could hit 
worth a damn besides Giambi was Eric Chavez.  The Mariners had 8 all-
stars on their 116 win team.  Giambi on the other hand was the ONLY 
all-star on his 102 win team.  Do the math on that one.

NOTES
The wheels have completely fallen off for Leiter this year, which he 
declared was his final season in the majors.  The Marlins designated

NOTES
Roberts is a good reliever but has had bouts with injuries over the 
last two seasons.  The Mets released him because he had lost velocity 
since fraying his labrum.  Perhaps not coincidentally, he tested 
positive for steroids a few days later.  He’ll serve a 15 game 
suspension when he signs with another team.

NOTES
Roach was called up back in 2003 and pitched 2 games.  He had a 12.00 
ERA in 9 innings, but was also 2 for 2 at the plate.  Maybe it’s time 
for a position switch?

NOTES
Ranked by Baseball America as the best pitching prospect, and second 
best prospect in baseball.  The last player who dominated at Felix’s 
age was Dwight Gooden.  He throws 97 MPH and since his frame hasn’t 
completely filled out yet he has the potential to throw even harder.  
His curve comes in hard and fast, while his slider is in the 88-90 MPH 
range.  He also has a great ground ball ratio.  The Mariners just 
called up their pitching phenom so it will be interesting to see how he 
performs in the majors at the young age of 19.

NOTES
Snelling should be a major league regular by now, but he’s quite 
possibly the most injury prone player in all of baseball.  He tore 
through AAA with a .370 average this year, and hit .276 (.830 OPS) in 
15 big league games before being lost for the year (AGAIN).

NOTES
Pujols is the best young hitter in baseball.  Period.  Last year EA had 
him rated a little too good though.  They gave him 98 RHP Contact.  
Pujols is good against righties, but he isn’t the best in baseball 
against them, and he sure doesn’t kill them as badly as he does 
lefties.  I gave him a 92 last year – EA correctly gave him a 91 this 
year.

NOTES
Devil Rays closer currently on the trading block.  Has a good fastball 
but it’s supported by average pitches.  The two-seam fastball is his 
out pitch, he uses it like a Cutter.  The Indians swapped his changeup 
for a Splitter because it compliments his hard fastball better, and he 
uses this pitch to collect groundball outs.

NOTES
Former Cubs closer that came off the scrap heap, but injuries have 
taken away his velocity.  Supposedly his velocity is starting to come 
back, and he has pitched well with the Devil Rays.

NOTES
Gonzalez has played pretty much his whole career at shortstop, but he 
is penciled in as the Devil Rays starting third baseman.  Quite a 
questionable free agent signing considering the team has no shortage of 
players that could play third.

NOTES
One of the best young pitchers in baseball, Kazmir is throwing well for 
the Devil Rays despite his age.  He’ll either be a Cy Young quality 
ace, or durability issues will force him to be a power reliever ala 
Billy Wagner.

NOTES
Missed the 40/40 club in 2002 by one home run, and was third in MVP 
voting that year.  He had the steals mark a week before the season 
ended, but couldn’t get the 40th homer because he was pressing too much 
for it.  Then when the playoffs came along he hit poorly because he had 
spent the last week swinging for the fences rather than swinging 
normally, and the Yanks were dispatched by the Angels.  Soriano had a 
chance to redeem himself the following year, but he would strikeout in 
wild fashion in many of his at bats.  The Yanks traded him to the 
Rangers for Alex Rodriguez.

Larry Broadway actually wasn’t one of the Top 100 Prospects.  There are 
plenty of people from the list that aren’t in the game (since guys like 
Jeff Niemann and Phil Humber hadn’t thrown a single minor league inning 
but were on the list) so they had to replace them with someone.

NOTES
Escobar is a former top prospect in the Mets organization. Four times 
Escobar was selected to Baseball America’s Top 100 Prospects list 
(twice in the top 20).  He had 30/30 potential and played a good center 
field before his career was derailed by multiple leg injuries.  Escobar 
was the centerpiece of the Roberto Alomar trade, and Escobar’s injuries 
are the only reason the Mets came out even in that deal.

NOTES
Prior to this edit, Boone is the highest rated second baseman in the 
game.  I don’t know why the Mariners designated him for assignment.  
Boone wasn’t the hitter he’s been in the past, but that just meant he 
was hitting as poorly as most other second basemen.  A OPS of .684 this 
year with the Mariners truly isn’t that bad for a second baseman, it’s 
bad for a player of Boone’s stature.  Since he won a gold glove last 
year, it’s not like he was hurting the team on defense either.  Boone 
was traded to the Twins and is taking over as their regular second 
baseman.  Hit even worse for the Twins, and they released him after 
only three weeks.

NOTES
Franco is the active leader in saves (424), which is second all-time in 
saves behind Lee Smith (478), and is the Mets franchise leader in the 
category with 286.  Trevor Hoffman (393) at age 36 is almost a lock to 
pass him within the next two years, and possibly challenge Smith’s 
record.  Still, Franco ranks very high in saves for a lefty, as the 
next one on the list is Randy Myers with 347.  Billy Wagner is the only 
other active lefty in the top 50, and he has 286 saves at age 32.  
After Wagner, the only other active lefty in the top 100 is Eddie 
Guardado, who has 169 saves at age 33. It should be obvious that Franco 
is probably the best lefty closer of all-time, although he probably 
lacks the credentials to get into the hall of fame.  Franco has the 
second lowest career ERA (2.84) among active players, behind only Pedro 
Martinez (2.71), which is quite impressive considering his age.  He is 
the active leader in games pitched (1088), and second all-time, behind 
Jesse Orosco (1252).  Franco left his hometown Mets after spending 14 
seasons with them.  He’s going to give it one more shot in Houston, 
which is littered with more than a few former NY pitchers to keep 
Franco some company (Clemens, Pettitte).

NOTES
Franco is the active leader in saves (424), which is second all-time in 
saves behind Lee Smith (478), and is the Mets franchise leader in the 
category with 286.  Trevor Hoffman (393) at age 36 is almost a lock to 
pass him within the next two years, and possibly challenge Smith’s 
record.  Still, Franco ranks very high in saves for a lefty, as the 
next one on the list is Randy Myers with 347.  Billy Wagner is the only 
other active lefty in the top 50, and he has 286 saves at age 32.  
After Wagner, the only other active lefty in the top 100 is Eddie 
Guardado, who has 169 saves at age 33. It should be obvious that Franco 
is probably the best lefty closer of all-time, although he probably 
lacks the credentials to get into the hall of fame.  Franco has the 
second lowest career ERA (2.84) among active players, behind only Pedro 
Martinez (2.71), which is quite impressive considering his age.  He is 
the active leader in games pitched (1088), and second all-time, behind 
Jesse Orosco (1252).  Franco left his hometown Mets after spending 14 
seasons with them.  He’s going to give it one more shot in Houston, 
which is littered with more than a few former NY pitchers to keep 
Franco some company (Clemens, Pettitte).

NOTES
Koo is a 35-year-old rookie from South Korea.  He’s serving as a lefty 
specialist in the Mets bullpen.  Koo hit a double off Randy Johnson.  
In one of the odder baseball sequences of the year, Jose Reyes bunted, 
and when the Yanks threw him out at first, Koo took off for home 
because nobody was covering the plate.  He was able to score with a 
crazy slide.  He also struck out all three batters he faced that day.  
Unfortunately, Koo ended up injuring himself on the slide and had to go 
on the disabled list.

NOTES
Moehler has been injured and ineffective the last few years.  The last 
time he pitched this well was back in 2000.  Moehler is still the same 
pitcher he was before; the only reasons his ERA is lower is he’s 
pitching in a friendlier league (NL pitchers tend to have lower ERA’s 
than AL pitchers) and he’s a ground ball pitcher pitching at a ground 
ball friendly ballpark.

NOTES
Riggan pitched effectively for the Mets out of the bullpen in 2001, but 
was included in the Roberto Alomar trade and sent to Cleveland.  He 
later returned to the Mets, but they sold him days later to a Japanese 
team.  Riggan is back with the Mets on a minor league contract, but he 
has yet to pitch due to injury.

NOTES
Ring is a young setup man the Mets acquired from the White Sox in the 
Roberto Alomar trade.  He is expected to make his major league debut 
this season.  He is similar to Mike Stanton but depends on his Slider 
more than his Curveball.  Ring was once a fireballer, but has lost some 
velocity on his fastball.  He used to throw it 95+ MPH in college, but 
now he throws it 91-93 MPH.  He’s since become a breaking ball pitcher.  
He can close part time (ala Stanton), but not full time because he 
doesn’t have a plus fastball anymore.

NOTES
Roach was called up back in 2003 and pitched 2 games.  He had a 12.00 
ERA in 9 innings, but was also 2 for 2 at the plate.  Maybe it’s time 
for a position switch?

NOTES
Strange is coming off a sub-par year at AAA (10-9, 5.25 era) but is 
only 24 years old, so he still has time to put it together.  He signed 
a minor league deal with the Twins, who are more likely to use his 
services.

NOTES
Mike Glavine is the younger and far less accomplished brother of future 
hall of famer Tom Glavine.  He’s a career minor leaguer that got his 
first and only major league hit (in the only major league call up he’s 
going to get in his career) with two outs in the ninth inning of the 
last game of the MLB season.

XVI. Questions and Answers

If you have any questions, I’ll post it here (if it’s a good question).

-----

Question
Do you have the appearances for CAPs?

Answer
No, I don’t care much for appearances.  As long as Shane Spencer is 
putting up numbers similar to what he’s capable of, then I could care 
less if he’s 7 feet tall and Asian.  Besides, the CAP design is so 
simplistic that you can’t really make guys that close to what they 
really look like anyway, only a general accuracy.

XIX. Closing

Well this certainly is quite a time consuming project.  It takes a lot 
more time to edit MLB players than it does NBA players.  Not just 
because I am far more familiar with NBA players, but also because the 
nature of the edits is so complex and a lot of research is required in 
each individual case.  As I’ve always said, I’m more for quality than I 
am for quantity – that doesn’t mean the quantity won’t come; it just 
means it will take time to get there.  I hope you enjoy this guide.

Until next time,

Rashidi
