  1. This scale needs to go higher.

  2. My confusion lies with the notion that your RECK statistic “doesn’t exist”. Of COURSE it “exists”. There are questions, of course, about the VALUE of the statistic (does it have any predictive and explanatory power) but that’s a different matter completely.

  3. Actually, it looks pretty similar to the Richter Scale to me.

  6. What is the projected RECK for Dayan Viciedo? BTW, I like the stat.

  7. The scale to rank Vin Scully should go up to 11.

  8. I thought the poll was just broken. On a scale of 1 – 5, Scully is still an 11.

  9. we shouldn’t have to rank Vin. Everyone knows he’s the best ever.

  10. Shocked that Edwin Encarnacion isn’t in the top 10 for RECK.

  11. Shouldn’t Michael Morse for the Nats be in the Top 10 with a 4.3?

    (.360 – .303) = .057

    ISO = .247

    .247/.057 = 4.3

  12. Dodgers fans feel bad that the rest of the country doesn’t get the pleasure of Vin Scully. Well, except for Giants fans, or Phillies fans. They’d probably boo him.

  13. Shouldn’t Adam Jones be in the top 10 as well?

    Kinda strange to see Hardy in there, he swung at only 42.5% of the pitches he got, which is below the league average of 46.2%.

  14. By this reckoning (yeah yeah) the AL West is a reckless, impatient place.

  15. There was a minor error in my spreadsheet, which has now been fixed. Morse is 17th — with a 4.3, as you suggest.

  16. A distinction between “non-existent” and “meaningless”– while valid — isn’t useful in the context of Carson Cistulli.

  17. I wonder how good of a RECKer Anthony Recker projects to be in 2012.

  18. So if any team takes the Cubs offer to be rid of Alfonso Soriano for the remainder of his burdensome contract, and the Cubs eat most of the money, then the receiving team can reasonably say they rented a RECK.

  19. I was going to add I think a weighting factor that accounts for swing % (O-swing % relative to league average or something) in some way might help conclusively and objectively identify the most RECKless from guys with big power who don’t walk much…

  20. I’m interested in what a team RECK leaderboard would look like… without running the numbers, I’m guessing Rangers would be the odds on favorites for most reckless?

    Comment by James — January 10, 2012 @ 12:04 am

  21. Why don’t you assign a fielding value for each player based off zips projections? I was thinking you could do +10 for EX, +5 for VG, 0 for AV, -5 for FR, and -10 for PO. That would be simple enough. Also, it would be interesting to see how well speed score correlates to Bsr, and depending on how well it does calculate the players SPD score and convert it to xBsr or something like that
