As I’m still bogged down with the equally arduous task of gravelling my way through the Thunderegg 213 Song CD Box Set...seansatt gives this a go…“reworked metric and gives us a first look by using it to rank the best and worst teams of all time, plus he explains in a general sort of way how his metric works.”
One of the first missions of almost every sabermetrician is to determine a preferred strategy for rating the performance of baseball teams and players while keeping in mind the many complicating factors that distort statistics like wins and losses and run differentials.
There is a host of available data today that makes analysis of teams possible, but some understanding of the dynamic way in which those statistics combine to produce wins and losses is required, and this is not a simple matter. Empirical analysis has for years centered on the idea that averages tell enough of the story to be used as the backbone of any system designed to adjust raw statistics to account for the context in which they occured. This document will explore the problems with empirical sabermetrics and introduce a new tool designed to bridge the gap between the intrinsic skill of the players, and the real world statistics that define them.
