Would it be possible to use Team Defensive efficiency along with player As range in order to calculate some sort of defensive rating?
I am looking at the 1933 NYG right now, they get 48 RUns here for RPos. Why? It's not like the NYG were playing CF more than any other team.
Also why is Rbat so low? I think for almost every team but the Cubs it is in negative territory what is going on with that?
for an average prediction error of 5.75 games. all four teams did play 154 games.
See, I think every Mt. Rushmore needs its Teddy Roosevelt. The decent enough guy who is by no means in the same league as the other three.
t I suppose the Mt. Rushmore of shortstops should have whoever it was who figured out that putting an infielder between 2B and 3B was a good idea.
The league average that everyone is compared to is batting with pitchers excluded. That is important after 1973 to make sure Cal Ripken and Mike Schmidt are on equal footing. But then I end up with pitchers being some big negative number for rbat. It's balanced out by crediting pitchers in the rpos column.
Keep in mind the league is about -40 (going from memory and didnt check all) whereas the Cubs here have 4 seasons where they are like 70 to 100 runs above the league average. How can that possibly be coming from pitcher slot? They only bat 1/9 times, so if the team averaged say 80 runs above the league Rbat, then I guess every pitcher would have to be like 9 runs better than the average MLB hitter?? It would be off the charts...
At the bottom is Team Player Value Batters; that includes all the batters Phil Cavaretta, Tex Carleton, CUyler, everyone not just pitchers. THere is a total for everyone (I presume thats why its at the bottom of the colum) scored as 35. This value fluctuates wildly for the Cubs from year to year I dont get it.
I dont know what I am missing, I am confused again...
