PVR SI'S FANTASY BASEBALL RATINGS

March 31, 2003

We ranked the position players in the major leagues from 1 (the
best) to 425 and the pitchers from 1 to 400, based on our
projections of their statistical production this season. The
categories considered for position players were batting average,
home runs, RBIs and stolen bases; for pitchers the categories
were wins, saves, earned run average and WHIP (walks plus hits
per inning pitched). We also took into account each player's
career stats as well as his role on his team, his prospects for
improving or declining, his injury history and his physical
condition. Using these criteria, we determined each player's
value ranking, or PVR, which appears next to his name in his
team's projected roster in our scouting reports. Below, the top
players are ranked by position, with the overall PVR for each.
