Rally: Balls in Play by Count

+

Sean Smith breaks down how often players reach base by pitch count (or, less specifically, neutral, pitcher or hitters' counts). He intends on using this to improve TotalZone, which I think is pretty cool. I have no witty remarks or anything, so I hope you're not reading for my commentary. Click the link.

Choose your own projection

5

I did a little Fanpost at Royals Review... I originally was just going to do a generic WAR projection for the position pl ayers, averaging CHONE, PECTOA, and ZiPS, but then I came up with the idea do break it down into components by projection system so that people could "choose their own projection." Kind of a funny take referencing the old "choose your own adventure" books from my childhood or whatever. I thought it was a fun idea, anyway, to get people to understand how intuitive the notion of WAR really is, as well as letting them pick each projection they think is better, or to leave out parts they don't like (say, if they hate defensive stats). Would have been better with multiple choices for defensive projections or baserunning, of course, but given that I had to do the baserunning myself, I feel okay about it. I'm not an "official" Royals blogger or anything, but I thought this was sort of an entertaining twist on the usual projections post that other people might get a kick out of and maybe run with.
