The Hardball Times has their first page of batting statistics up, which includes, amongst the standards, the following:

RC
ISO
GPA
P/PA
LD%


should be a great resource

this link is even better; it has both leagues, and has batting and pitching:

http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/stats/


the batting stats are listed in my previous post...the pitching stats, in addition to the conventional ones, are RSAA, DER (defense efficiency ratio), and FIP (fielding independent pitching...basically DIPS ERA).


if this site starts listing defensive metrics like UZR, there will be no need to use any other statistics site on the internet.

Except for my problems with Runs Created (mostly that it sometimes projects negative runs scored for a player--how can you create negative runs?), that's a great resource. Baseball Prospectus, in my opinion, has great stats, too.

Nice, thanks for the link. :)

Didn't GPA used to be called "Gleeman Production Average"? They changed it to "Gross Production Average" now. ;)

You can have a negitive RC if your presence in the lineup actually takes away from the team scoring runs.

An example from last year was Curtis Pride. He went 1 for 12 (HR), 2 k's and grounded into a double play. The offense contributed from the HR doesn't out wiegh the 12 outs he inflicted apon the offense.

Generally, once a player gets a significant number of at bats, he will post a positive RC.

Thanks WiffleWOOD!

This forum has increased my knowledge of baseball 10 fold and I've been following the sport since the early 1970s. It's an excellent resource. I'm applying these "modern" stats to my strat-o-matic season.

Good job! :D
