I love video games. One of those happens to be MVP Baseball. The great thing about MVP is the ability to create your own players and edit minor leaguers. So far, I've created virtual representations of half the people in our league. Since I know Peter's also an avid fan of MVP, I have some tips and questions for anyone who cares.

Tips for hitting stats:

If you want the hitting to be close to what we have in our league, take the person's average and multiply it by 2. Then subtract 20% and multiply by 100. There's your baseline for "Contact". (There's no reason to make an accurate representation of our skills on a major league level unless you want to lose all the time.)

It's a bit trickier to figure out "power" so just take a look at the person's doubles and HR per 100 AB and think about what you know about that person's hitting. Do you back up when they come to bat?
PS: Rob is stronger than you might think.

Tips for speed stats:

Take the number of runs and subtract home runs, then divide by hits. Multiply by 100, then add 5 for each triple and .5 for each double. That should be the value for "Speed". It's not quite accurate for some people (Scott is definitely not 61 on a scale of 1-100) but is surprisingly close for many.

my new goal in life: breaking your calculations by having more than 100 speed (I' at 96 right now).

Seriously, Nick... I have MVP too, and I was thinking about making a bunch of our guys... this'll be helpful.

according to your scale, my speed would be 58 and contact would be 68.

-_-


I really don't think that's right...

OK, so I made a reference to this thread without doing the research first, but I did have the -.2 calculation worked out... honest.
