Negro League Stats

Today Baseball-reference.com released their results from a research grant provided by the MLB, that uncovered statistics from the Negro Baseball Leagues. All statistically-inclined baseball fans who have serious admiration for the Negro Leagues can rejoice. Now they can not only get their NLB-fix at the Negro League Hall of Fame in Kansas City, but also head over the BR, to research Josh Gibson's OPS or check out Satchel Paige's K/BB rate.

Introducing The Simple WAR Calculator 2.0

From BtB's own Lewie Pollis...an update to the simple WAR calculator.

Mel Parnell (1922–2012)

I'm in the midst of pulling a ton of Red Sox historical data in preparation for the first Boston Baseball Hack Day on Saturday. I was saddened to see one of the best pitchers in team history has passed away. Parnell pitched ten seasons for the Red Sox, accumulating impressive traditional numbers (123-75, .621 WPCT, 3.50 ERA, 125 ERA+). He also did well by Baseball-Reference's WAR, posting seasons of 8.0 and 5.6 WAR (and three more seasons over 4.0). RIP, Mel.

A Detailed Look at Prospect Values

This is some great work by DRB writer mr. maniac. a ton of info from it and a very good conversation starter. enjoy

Joe Maddon probably knows the truth, or most of it. Hellickson's probably going to give up a lot more hits this season than last, and there's not much that Maddon can do about it. Yes, he can position his fielders "properly" and that's going to help. The Rays already use more infield shifts than anybody else in the majors, so there's only so much more that Maddon can do. The Rays' starters did have low BABiPs last season; all of them. At .281 and .280, David Price and Wade Davis were the highest among the four main guys. And that's partly the shifts, partly the great infield defense, and partly luck.
