  1. Awesome.

  2. When I looked at stats for the whole league, it said the wRC+ was 96, I thought 100 was supposed to be average? Am I just being an idiot and not understanding something about wRC+ or is there something weird going on?

  3. This is correct. The league averages are calculated with pitcher hitting excluded. When you add pitcher hitting back into the mix, it pushes the average down a little bit.

  4. NICE!
    I have a question/suggestion: When looking at team stats for say, RF, it gives you the totals of all players combined. Meaning, if Reed Johnson got 20 at bats in RF and 200 in LF, all 220 at bats would still show in the team total for RF.
    So the Tigers show 1470 PA’s in RF while the Rangers show only 513 PA.
    Is it possible to ONLY show PA’s while playing each position (like ESPN stats do)?
    Thanks! Great addition.

  5. Please, PLEASE add QS as a stat within leaderboards.

    I know it isn’t a great stat, I know it has its flaws…but I love working with Fangraphs data for my fantasy league, but when I cannot get all the information from here it makes it difficult to work around.

  6. Thanks for this!

    By the way, when can we get ADR on the leaderboards?

  7. You guys rock. This website is run fantastically.

  8. Are the month splits gone for good? I kinda liked those. In addition, will we be getting a postseason split? When I saw the update, I was hoping that would be included. Please and thank you.

  9. I love the custom reports feature. thanks.

    But, I have to ask, and I am sure I am not the only who wants this. Why is it that when I click a column heading, let’s say it is the HR column, the default sort is least to most, rather than most to least? So, when I click on HRs, I get an updated page showing guys who hit 1 HR this season.

    I think it works that way for most column sorts.

  10. The monthly splits are still there in the dropdown box. Not sure how soon post season splits will be possible, but am looking into it.

  11. My mistake, the monthly splits were not there. This should be fixed now.

  12. This is very good. No longer will I have many Fangraph tabs open at once. Very useful indeed.

  13. will we ever get the optio of creating our own stats and them showing up personaly on our leaderboards?

  14. Thanks for the fix. Can’t wait for the next update. Keep up the good work.

  15. Thanks, Dave! This is awesome!

  16. Random stat request for the future: Give the average wOBA of all batters a pitcher faces during the course of a year. Or at least something similar, to give a sense of the strength of apposition a pitcher might face.

    Comment by Chair — October 11, 2011 @ 4:10 am

  17. Though I can’t say I know how this would work. wOBA is meaningful but not when you don’t have an appropriate sample size….hm I still think you guys could figure something out to help with what I’m getting at.

  18. I know we’re talking about a very small sample size, but it would be pretty fun to have a playoff WAR leaderboard.

    Comment by Nathan — October 11, 2011 @ 9:27 am

  19. How come MLB had 472 WAR in 2011, but only 458 WAR in 2008? How is that possible without a changing baseline?

  20. There’s going to be some fluctuation from year to year, though not too much. I think this has to do with some impreciseness in the run to win conversion number. We use (R*9/IP) * 1.5 + 3, which is a little bit of a shortcut, but gets you really really close.

    There are some other things which can cause some fluctuation too with a declining run environment, such as a lower number of PA.
