Cumulative Player Ratings

Tom Hauck

I put all the ratings into a nice neat spreadsheet and did some small analysis on the player ratings we editors gave after each game.

First and foremost, the ratings each of us gave were based on so many different things, I would not put much stock on them.

With that said, it is still a good conversation point and lets us see who we, the editors, thought had a consistent season and those who did not have a consistent season. I went back and found every ratings article we had posted for the 2012 season and put them in an excel sheet and then caculated each players average rating. (Early in the season each player had two ratings from two different editors so I average the two ratings when I inputted the one rating per game)

Here are the results for each player:

Analysis and background

As you can see I have two columns at the end that deal with the Dallas Away game, the one in which the Timbers quit and got pasted, and the reason I have this is because the highest rating for that game was a 2. I wanted to see if a players difference changed if I took out what looked to me like an outlier and as you can see for some players it made a difference and others it did not. Usually the players who did not show a smaller difference is due to the fact that they received just as low of a rating in a different game.

Interesting to note that our highest rated player was Diego Chara and our lowest rated was James Marcelin but the difference between the two is only 2.2. Of course we had a lot of players hovering around 5 which either means they were consistently average or had high ratings then low ratings.

Another interesting thing to note is that Andrew Jean-Baptiste was our highest rated center back with an average of 5.4, of course he only had 5 ratings during the year. The highest rated forward was Kris Boyd at 5.4 and per my statement above Diego Chara was the highest rated midfielder. For those looking at the Goalies both Ricketts and Perkins tied at 5.4 with Joe Bendik coming in with a 5.0. Which means Ricketts might not have been the upgrade touted by the Timbers.

If you want to see the whole spreadsheet here it is:

Nothing really exciting about the ratings but something to peruse in the off season.
