In the Back to the 90’s game the player card years are revealed a few days after the Finals have completed. It’s interesting to go through your team at the end of the year to see what kind of cards you actually had. I usually tend to go through the roster once and then I’m done with that team. I haven’t really delved into any additional analysis until now. I wrote a new script to do most of this work for me. Here is what the script will do:
On each team page, red stars (rated 1 to 5) are added next to each player to indicate whether it was their good year or worst year. For pitchers these ratings are based on their “WHIPERA”. The year with the lowest WHIPERA gets five stars. The year with the highest WHIPERA gets one star. For batters, the ratings are based on their OPS.
These five star visuals are really helpful especially when you can see everything on the same page. The stars will also appear on the Free Agent page.
Also on each team page I added an after season team analysis with three sections:
1. Dropped Player Points – Points awarded based on the ratings of players dropped. e.g. five points awarded to one star players and 1 point awarded to five star players. Average is then divided by 20. Most points possible is 100.
2. Five Star Players — Number of five star players currently on roster.
3. “Lucky” Points — Points awarded based on the ratings of players who participated on the team. e.g. Five points awarded to five star players and one point awarded to one star players. Average is then divided by 20. Most points possible is 100.
These results are a bit primitive so it’s not the definitive answer on determining how you actually did as a manager but I think it’s good starting point for the initial release of the script.
