Rally updates his Historical Wins Above Replacement back to 1871

As Rally notes, the pre-Retrosheet (pre-1955) defensive stuff is kinda shaky, but this is still super-cool.

Boy, Did that Strict Pitch Count Ever Screw Up Nolan Ryan's 1987

In a recent article for Sports Illustrated, Joe Posnanski cites Nolan Ryan's experience with pitch counts in 1987 for Ryan's current opposition to them. Exactly how "terrible" was Ryan's 1987 season with the Astros?

Historical PItching WAR: Dan Quisenberry

Here's a link for a little FanPost I did over at Royals Review about probably the best reliever in Royals history (insert joke here). I've been meaning to get my stuff together with historical WAR for pitchers for a while -- getting Patriot's park factors into BDB is holding me up, although it's coming around (thanks to TucsonRoyal). For now, I can only do one player at a time. I won't make any promises, and for relievers, in particular, data is lacking, but if people have any specific requests for seasons/careers for pitchers they'd like to see me review, that would be something I'd enjoy doing from time-to-time.

Griffey_war

If you follow Beyond the Box Score at all, you'll know that they do a Graph of the Day everyday, usually comparing two players wins above replacement historically using data from Sean Smith's Historical WAR database. Today, I'm doing something similar, but I'm comparing one player to himself. Above, you'll see Ken Griffey Jr.'s career sorted from best to worst WAR. His seasons with the Reds are in red, with the Mariners are in blue. (larger image) NOTE: These are not displayed in order by year but by quality. That's right, every season Griffey had with the Reds was worse than any season he had with the Mariners except for one. What a disappointment.
