  • Elo ratings for international baseball

    Hey guys, someone linked to my previews for this month's international baseball events, so I figured I'd contribute my rankings.

    Details on the methodology available here, along with a much nicer-looking table. The numbers below are for all teams with at least 25 games available. Feedback is always welcome, and if you know where to find more results, I would definitely appreciate those too.

    Enjoy!

    Hey, that was me, saw your work get posted on Twitter and thought it was cool to have someone writing about international baseball in this sort of way. We have critiqued the IBAF rankings in the past and usually when we talk about team rankings, they definitely look more like yours. It also comes up when we try to consider what teams might warrant a WBC shot in the future if they expand teams, or replace current quali teams with others.

    Welcome to the boards!

      Welcome to Baseball-Fever, you might find one of our previous Ranking threads interesting:

      I tried creating my own WBC rankings, but it had some flaws, so I removed it for some revision. At this moment, I don't have the time to fix those flaws, perhaps in a few months.
