Recently I was thinking about fielding data, something that’s admittedly an unperfected area of sabermetrics. Debate over just how imperfect the data is has been raging for some time now. I think most of us know that UZR and the likes have serious flaws- prone to sample size issues the data can skew analysis in [...]
In turning the WAR page to right field, the first thought that pops into my mind is proven-Yankee-destroyer Jose Bautista, who not only leads all right fielders in WAR, but has been a top-10 player in the entire American League, according to bWAR [...]
After the approximately 8 million stolen bases thieved by Boston during last night’s ninth inning, it’s rather appropriate that in today’s post we’re landing on the catcher position.
Determining a catcher’s value can be a tricky business. Therefore, for the purpose of getting a better overall perspective, I’ve increased the number of players in the [...]
Prior to starting this WAR endeavor, I was initially most interested in the story that the numbers told on the topic of MLB’s third basemen in terms of value. Likewise, Alex Rodriguez will always be a major point of interest for me in general. How often do you have a player who’s so completely [...]
As the title suggests, today’s WAR lens focuses in on shortstops from around the league. This of course includes our very own, El Capitán. Before you read the rest of this post please understand the following:
1) WAR is not the be-all end-all to sabermetrics by any means, and yes, [...]
The next stop on the “WAR Tour” involves second basemen, specifically Robinson Cano. If you hadn’t had an opportunity to read our Mark Teixeira WAR analysis, click here. Similar to the prior WAR post, I included several of the most productive second basemen in the game. Despite injury-plagued seasons, I also [...]
As I watched last night’s bout between two American League heavyweight favorites, I began pondering how this year’s cast of Yankees compared with the rest of league as individuals in terms of overall value. Obviously, as a team, the Yanks are pretty solid (despite recent frustrations).
I figured it would be interesting [...]
As we’ve seen over 12 games thus far against the Blue Jays in which the Yankees have gone 5-7, this year’s Toronto team has some astoundingly good starting pitching. Which got me wondering, just how good has it been? As I reiterated in my game recap, it’s terrifying to [...]
Now in fairness, the Yankees have faced some very tough pitchers in August. Thus far they are a weak 3-6 on the month, and those six losses have come in games started by James Shields (an excellent pitcher having a less-than-stellar year), Brandon Morrow (tied for 10th in [...]
At the present moment, only two pitchers in the American League have a higher WAR than Jon Lester and his jaw-dropping 4.2: Francisco Liriano (5.1!) and Cliff Lee (4.3).
Before I go too much further, I have to admit that I’ve been a huge Lester fan [...]
