Over the course of this week, we’ve been releasing the results of our radio broadcaster rankings — itself the product of reader crowdsourcing, and a logical companion to the television broadcaster rankings released in March.
Below is a complete (and sortable) table of the radio broadcast rankings, followed by some notes on same.
|16||New York NL||124||3.7||3.8||3.8|
|30||New York AL||173||2.3||2.0||2.1|
• Radio teams, on average, fared better among FanGraphs readers than their television counterparts: the average radio team received an Overall score of 3.75; television, only 3.24 — i.e. almost precisely a half-point difference.
• Regarding the readership, two things. First: they (you?) were indispensable to this project, especially in the provision of amusing and/or useful comments regarding the league’s various broadcast teams. Second: it seems like a long-term, interactive project like this is a viable thing. Is there any other use for it beyond rating broadcasters? Feel very free to use the comment area for suggestions to that end.
• Next week, we’ll look at a table combining both radio and television broadcast teams and also how to integrate all this information, if possible, into the game previews that appear in the Daily Notes.
