  1. This is awesome, thank you!

    How about adding RE24 to the library? Or what’s the thought on this stat?

  2. To be honest, the main reason I haven’t added RE24 yet is because I’m pretty ignorant about what it is or how to use it. I know vaguely, but I definitely need to do more reading and research before feeling comfortable enough with it to put a page together.

    Great thought, though. It’s available here, and so there should be a page on it. That’ll be one of the coming updates.

  3. This is a great addition to the site. Will there be a permanent link to the library from the home page or at least from the blogs page?

  7. I have one suggestion, which might turn into a bit of work, so use your discretion. I noticed that you have quite a few external links in the library. I would suggest copying the content of those pages as an archive in case the sites you link go down. I don’t know how many times I’ve tried following links from old discussions at the book blog etc., and the linked sites no longer exist. I’m sure most authors wouldn’t mind if you saved an archival copy, so you can resurrect the content if their sites disappear at a later date.

    Thanks for your work! Glad to see you on Fangraphs.

  8. Jeez, this rules. Just looked at the percentile charts, which are a fantastic idea. I will now be way less fearful of recommending fangraphs to non-statheads…

    Now what would be really handy is if links to the stat description showed up in blog text the same way links to players do…

  9. I think that is part of the plan:

    “I made the pages easily linkable, so writers wouldn’t need to re-explain a statistic every time they used it in an article, but could link to the Library and direct their readers there for more information (like, say, wOBA).”
