Talking to a Sabermagician: Colin Wyers

Colin Wyers is well known, and well respected, within the Sabermetric community for his previous and current contributions to the field of Sabermetrics. He took the time to drop some #want and knowledge on us.

Custom wOBA and Linear Weights Through 2010: Baseball Databank Data Dump 2.1

In response to overwhelming demand (ahem), here are are customized weights from 1871-2010 for calculating hitter value with linear weights.

Baseball Databank Data Dump, I: FIP Constants and Runs Per Win

Do you want quick access to FIP customized to each season? Or Runs to Wins conversion, or even a way to calculate these yourself? Check it out.

Zack Greinke and the 11 Greatest Seasons Since Pedro's 1999

Zack looked like he was going to "make history" back in May. You know, the history books that cite pitcher WAR. So, I checked it out using my usual tricks that are actually borrowed from other people: Colin Wyers' BsR-FIP (why isn't this used more?), PythagenPat, etc. to see how he stacked up, and in the meantime, I rank a number of other great seasons. And, yes, this includes some stuff from before the "FanGraphs Era" (2002-).

1996: The Twilight of Roger Clemens' Career?

Another self-explanatory title. Nothing too deep, just looking at how Clemens stacked up in 1996, his last season in Boston, using FIP, WAR, and also my first public attempt at using Colin Wyer's BsR-FIP. Bow before my generic number crunching and superficial analysis, mortals! P.S. In retrospect, some Stephanie Myers references would have been good.

And away we go...
