  2. Nice addition. Any chance that age can be added as one of the columns displayed in the leaderboards and projections?

  3. I thought this was announcing a new Fangraphs section for readers aged 18+

  5. An example of the great stuff you can find on the site now using these filters.,ss&rost=0&age=35,39&players=0

    Those are the league totals for all position players 35 and older each year over the last 30 years. For all the talk about how steroids helped create a new breed of superstar old guy, the average WAR per 600 PA hasn’t really changed much at all over since 1982. There’s certainly been a significant growth in playing time given to older players, but that is to be expanded given expansion, as there are now more roster spots to fill than there used to be.

  6. Presumably these filters only use “baseball age” and not the age at which the performances occurred?

    It looks that way, considering, for instance, that Madison Bumgarner was already 20 when he made his MLB debut yet shows up on this filter for players aged 19 or less.

  7. pastadiving jeter stole my comment, but I was going to say Dayn Perry.

    Also, I read your name as pasta-diving jeter at first.

  8. This is awesome! Is there a way to pull out just one year as an age range? When I set the age min to 20 and the age max to 20, I get no results. I assumed this would give me the results for players’ age-20 seasons.

  9. Pretty sure its a reference to the giant sculpture of Derek Jeter made entirely of lasagna noodles in Central Park, Cwik.

  10. This reminds me: be very careful when you image-search Yu Darvish.

  11. Best Fangraphs announcement ever!

    Comment by tinmanryan — April 4, 2012 @ 3:17 pm

  12. Wouldn’t the growth of the potential player pool (foreign countries/pop. growth) counter that expansion in theory?

    Comment by Light Sabermetrics — April 4, 2012 @ 3:23 pm

  13. Now if only the site launched with the cursor already in the player search field . . .

  14. Great, now I never have to go to ESPN’s website again!

  15. You can add age through the custom leaderboards:

    I’ll look into adding age to projections.

    Comment by David Appelman — April 4, 2012 @ 3:53 pm

  16. Yes, it’s baseball age, which is set at July 1st.

    Comment by David Appelman — April 4, 2012 @ 3:54 pm

  17. Check to make sure you’re not looking at just qualified players. Doing age 20 to 20 will work and give you just age 20.,20&players=0

  18. Thumbs up Dave…I have been wishing for this feature.

    Comment by brisko — April 4, 2012 @ 4:02 pm

  19. Yay!

  20. I hate websites with the cursor is already active somewhere, because the first thing I always do on my home laptop is hit the down arrow key to scroll.

    Comment by Well-Beered Englishman — April 4, 2012 @ 4:09 pm

  21. Older players are really, really bad at fielding and baserunning!

    Comment by Oh My — April 4, 2012 @ 4:28 pm

  22. Well stop doing that.

    Comment by azruavatar — April 4, 2012 @ 5:20 pm

  23. Fusilli Jeter!

    Comment by Okra — April 4, 2012 @ 5:22 pm

  24. There wasn’t one before?

    Comment by Bip — April 4, 2012 @ 6:50 pm

  25. I’ll agree with Light Sabermetrics and say that plate appearances and total WAR contribution by old people from 2000-2004 stand out like Sammy Sosa’s home run totals two years prior.

    Comment by Jon L. — April 4, 2012 @ 6:52 pm

  26. Awesome. Now I don’t have to go to B-Ref to do this.

    Comment by bstar — April 4, 2012 @ 8:55 pm

  27. No. If, for example, you wanted to compute Joey Votto’s wRC+ for the last three years combined, you would have to compute that yourself. Now, we don’t have to.

    Comment by bstar — April 4, 2012 @ 8:58 pm

  28. Or am I mistaken? Is this not available for the individual player pages? Color me only slightly excited if not.

    Comment by bstar — April 4, 2012 @ 9:11 pm

  29. The fact that you do not have weight filters yet again proves your anti-Detroit bias.

    Comment by TomG — April 4, 2012 @ 9:56 pm

  30. I assumed that the As would be at the bottom of the ‘WAR by pitchers over 30 by team’ charts. After looking, I realized that you can’t be at the bottom of the chart if you are getting WAR from pitchers over 30. Ergo, the Pirates.

    Comment by NBarnes — April 5, 2012 @ 1:50 am

  31. Nice. Here is what I asked for “splits capability” in the forum a while ago.

    What I’d like to be able to see is splits data broken down by both pitcher and hitter handedness. Currently you can only select splits based on the total population of hitters vs either a LH or RH pitcher. What I’d like to see are splits of the total population of RH batters vs LH pitchers. Where the handedness of both the hitter and pitcher were selectable.
    Any chances of seeing something like this soon?

  32. Great!

    Appreciate this enhancement, but do you think will see Pre and Post-ASB filters soon?
