mOPS Revisited

We had a nice discussion of salb's mOPS a while back. I just wanted to point out (because it was new to me) Mark Pankin's OPS work for SABR34 last july.

His conclusion:
Relative value depends on particular team

  • In most cases marginal OBP >= 2 SLG
  • Much higher for some lineup positions
  • "Improved" OPS:
  • -- OBP + SLG + (OBP - 0.340)
    -- 0.340 is typical ML average in recent years
    - Will be posted on www.pankin.com
    We see that the marginal values depend somewhat on the
    particular team, and in a lineup, the values can vary quite a
    bit due to the strengths of the preceding and following
    hitters. None of this is a surprise.
    Based on overall average performance, an estimate that an
    extra point of OBP is worth two or more of SLG seems
    justified. Can use 2 to improve OPS by giving a "bonus"
    point for each point OBP is above average or assessing a
    "penalty" point for each point below average.

    Interesting. A different slant than salb's and I just wanted to bring to to the attention of anyone who might not have known about Pankin's work. My apologies if this is obvious and well known.
