I know baseball-reference.com has changed formats recently. Has anyone tried to rate teams using the Excel program lately? Either I have forgotten a step or the format change has messed it up. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like the site change has changed the rating categories with the rater. I'll add updating it to me list. Doesn't look to be a large project.

Actually, Baseball-Reference has made the process easier with their new "download to Excel" function. I, however, will need to re-write the instructions.

I just uploaded the 2016 season, as a proof of concept.

Wow. Very nice. I will download now. I look forward to the new instructions and trying it myself. I usually do team by team instead of a whole league at a time but hopefully I can figure a way to do that as well. Thank you again. I have never had more fun playing baseball on the tabletop than with this game.

I also uploaded a spreadsheet that will produce single teams.

This is even better news. Great work. Now on Sunday I can have a day off and try it out. Thank you.

Just read the instructions and haven't tried anything yet. Do you do this for a single team from the team page? If so, when you create the workbook from baseball-reference, can you delete any players you don't want to card there before you copy and paste to the rater? Thank you again.

The single team works like a charm and is so easy. The only thing I had to do was drop down one line to paste in the stats from the worksheet as it skipped the first player otherwise. Great job.
