Elias Rankings released

Since the Elias rankings were back-calculated last year by Eddie Bajek of Tigers Thoughts, there should be less excitement regarding the release the the Elias free agent compensation rankings. There was a whole lot of outrage two seasons ago, and still a little last season, when the rankings were released. Orlando Hudson a type-B last year? We knew well in advance that it would happen. Regardless, here are the official Elias Rankings for this off-season. Feel free to voice your complaints in the comments.

How exactly is Melvin Mora a type A while guys like Carl Crawford and Vlad are type B?!?

That’s due largely to Elias’ refusal to quantify a player’s defensive contribution.

I got a few players wrong, and it’s looking like it had to do with my positional algorithm not quite matching.  If anybody finds the full rankings, feel free to let me know (

Thanks.
