25% is the team's win %
50% is the team's opponents' avg win %
25% is the team's opponents' opponents' avg win %
I will be following this year. This is easily one of the best systems on the forum! So consistent. Because the win % is so high, I build my losses into the next 5-10 series. I did this last year and though the stakes are higher, it paid off!! This makes baseball even more enjoyable than it already is.
Thanks LSU for the compliment.
I'm going to email ESPN after I write this because the power rankings are posted on/in the RPI window. Maybe it's just there to show what the current rankings are for us humans??? IDK. I always kind of figured it was calculated somehow into the system. I read how it's calculated again and you seem to be right. I will post again once ESPN replies to my email. You could very well be right my friend.
