  1. Cool. Any trends over the past three years?

    Also, please don’t give Phillie fans any more “Ryan Howard is elite” ammo. Thank you.

  2. Your leaders seem to be either mixed up or the numbers or wrong.

  3. Hmmm, a stat in which I’d take the worst 5 over the best 5 on my fantasy team.

  4. An award that praises Aubrey Huff and condemns Brett Gardner? I guess it is unwritten that to be king of the little things, you hold no reign over the big (read: important) things.

  5. David Ortiz is the 4th most un-clutch player in the league. His clutchiness has certainly fallen since 2004. Can someone make an aging curve for clutchicity?

  6. That or a swag meter.

  7. How are you converting runs to wins? Using 9.75 I get pretty close, except on Ibanez, which I’m guessing is a typo in your article since it’s not exactly ordinal going by the current lineup. Everyone else is within .005 points so I’m happy with my own look at this. I’m just curious why you didn’t use (4.28*2) as the run environment since that’s how many runs were scored per game this year. I’m going to look at the last 4-5 years and see what shakes out.

  8. Congratulations! It takes a true genius to invent a stat that is won by Aubrey Huff.

  9. I just used Tango’s short and simple runs-to-wins conversion (which FanGraphs also uses, I believe): (lgRA x 1.5) + 3, which maps pretty close onto PythagenPat. See:

  10. Wow! That’s a cool stat! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    Kind of like saying Obama is doing a great job because fewer people are giving up looking for work than last year.
