  1. What’s the formula for Cheers Above Replacement?

  2. We Nats fans are a pithy and erudite lot.

  3. Also, does W/Cm adjust for starting pitcher name. E.g. if Cliff Lee is pitching against Jordan Zimmermann, I think an adjustment should be made

  4. Well, generally, players with longer names attract smarter people. For example, the Red Sox are among the smartest fan bases (all of them go to some various college in Boston), and their catcerh is named Saltalamachiatolamarachimoroccomassachusettsmelancholymarmalademachia.

  5. The low FB/G is a direct response to Ozzie’s influence on the Marlins.

  6. Although the metric can be calculated from the numbers above, I think that the comments per user is most telling. And a quick calculation shows that, at an average of over 8 comments per person, the Mets fans just talk too damn much.

  8. Does this count as an f-bomb? Obviously, the intent is there. You also have to consider possible misspellings. Considering Mets fans appear to be less erudite than their peers, I imagine the f-bomb number could be deflated by those who miss a ‘k’ in there, or add an ‘e’ at the end.

  9. Is a Ph-bomb in a Phillies blog an F-bomb or a distinctly different event? If it’s the latter, then that would explain why the Phillies blog’s FB/G is so low.

  10. Yet another group of stats that the Rangers will be leading the majors in.

  11. If you divide CM/G by FB/G, which is the number of comments before you see an F Bomb,

    you get an F Bomb

    Phillies every 31 comments
    Mets every 148
    Braves every 458
    Nationals every 7702

  13. It also unfairly elevates their Ch/W because they turn all Fs into PHs.

    I blame griping about Jason Bay for the Mets low Ch/W. Actually, it’s probably vampires or something .

  14. You continue to raise the bar, Mississippi. Outstanding.

  15. I’m pretty sure Tom Tango did some work showing that fanbases, in general, can’t control CM/FB, and it takes ~100 blown saves to stabilise. Look for some regression to the mean from the Nationals, who can’t possibly sustain this prudishness over a full season.

  16. I think vegetarians could PROBABLY use this research to prove that the higher your cheesesteak consumption, the lower your overall capacity for intelligent expression, judging by Ch/W and FB/G alone. Of course, one may argue back that constant reference to the fightin’ Phils is BOUND to put one in an F-Bomb frame of fandom. I mean, that’s just altogether amateur alliteration awareness. If Phillies fans simply ate more salad, this entire discussion would be unnecessary.

  17. If anyone were to ask me, “Hey, CurtisStarkeyFan4Life, how are you doing today?” My default answer is, “ROBBED AND FULL OF RAGE!”

    Today boys, today! I am impressed.

  18. This definitely passes the smell test when it comes to Phillies fans…

  19. If it were Dios Mios per game, I’m sure it’d be through the roof

  20. As a prudish Nationals fan, I think I am skewing their results by interjecting colourful Anglicised curses like ‘bloody’. Were I a Well-Beered Irishman, I would spell it ‘feck,’ besides.

  21. Sorry, I meant to reply to CJ.
