GM rankings in the BBA

Post by handaspencer » Thu Oct 17, 2019 2:09 pm

It has been awhile since I did a league feature so I thought this one would be fun to look at. I complied the records of the current GM's in the BBA to give us an idea of how each GM stands. I put Will, Doug, Stephen, Vic, Joe, Taylor and Kevin separately because they have under 4 seasons in the BBA and I felt they needed grouped separately. These records also include time in the UEMBA. For the averages by division I excluded the winning percentages of the newer GM's due to lack of body of work. Not sure if winning percentage actually means anything or not I prefer to look at championships but I thought this was fun to look at as a way to gauge regular season success.

I can't get over the .500 hump. I have hovered around it the past few seasons after starting way under my first 3 seasons because of the rebuild project in Omaha(Indy) as my first team but now I can't get over it.

This is neat. Something looks a little off though, as I've only been around since 2026. Did you pull the years from in-game or the unified history?

I pulled from within game under 1. name, 2. other human managers, 3. manager list. It list the lifetime records of all gm's including current and past. I am trusting that those numbers are correct.

I took the total number of wins and losses and divided by 162 so not sure on the accuracy of # of seasons if EBA or earlier leagues had less games per season.
