    Quick pre-chat question, or perhaps request: for the newly introduced metrics, it would be useful to have a top-of-your-head baseline number for what ‘good’ or ‘bad’ means for these. E.g. is FDP on an ERA scale? Or, hm, let’s see… King Felix has FDP-Wins of 1.7 this season. Is that good? Is that what you’d expect from his skill set?

      You didn’t have enough coverage of this deal already? I’ve read at least 8 articles on it between the major SABR-oriented sites…

    Why am I not surprised that after FDP is introduced there were a bunch of questions to the effect of “(insert pitcher) has a fantastic FDP, he is now significantly better than we thought right?”. People just cannot wait to try and confirm their own bias.

    Are you not fond of tRA? I feel like the way it accounts for LD, FB, and GB is valuable, especially if one is talking about how a pitcher did in the past.

    any chance the chat replay can be fixed? last question shows as 12:18pm, so I’m pretty sure there is more.
