The positional power rankings is missing catcher

also it would be pretty cool to average out all the positions and rank them from high to low, im just too lazy to do that

As in “overall position player power rankings?” I think that would be a good idea. Someone else please go through the enormous effort so I can read that.

If you do this, you need to adjust DH because it is AL-only and starting pitcher because it is much more important than individual offensive positions.

Actually, what it’s really missing is relievers. But hopefully that will be here on Monday.

How about a re-sort of the positional power rankings by team in addition to by position? It’d allow one to quickly see teams’ strengths and weaknesses and the like.
