I have created a giant spreadsheet to calculate the usefulness of a player to fantasy baseball.
I have called this statistic the PRU: Pitching Relative Usefulness.
There will also eventually be the BRU, the batting relative usefulness, and I will upload that later.
So lets talk about the PRU. The PRU weighs pitchers by the five default categories in Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball. To be specific, it ranks all those players, puts them into a percentile, and then averages these percentiles. The PRU is a number 1-100. There is also the SPPRU (for starting pitchers) and the RPPRU (for relievers).
Now, many of you know that I don’t know anything about baseball, and have only started following it this year. I don’t actually know if this statistic is good, or if someone has attempted it before. Keep me informed.
OK. Now let me put up some tables of the rest.

And then the relievers:
So it turns out I have the 9th and 10th most useful relievers in our league. Anyway, sorry this post was so long. The spreadsheet for pitchers is here.
