**What is FPS?**

**- FPS (Fantasy Production Statistic) is a statistic I hastily developed to track the overall production of individual players in our league. It is a simple way of looking at the value of a player in "fantasy" terms. FPS involves only the statistics used in MRLB. Values are simply added or subtracted to arrive at a final number. I had to decrease the value of some statistics more than was mathematically logical because it is pretty obvious that Trevor Hoffman was not 50% more valuable than A-Rod last year, which is what was happening because of the high value I placed on saves. The current model has been tested extensively and should provide a decent measure of how valuable a player is to his MRLB team. Most importantly, it gives the owners one more thing to argue about.**
