The Sabermetrics Library

By

Over the past few weeks, Joe’s been going through and providing in-depth primers on all of the stats we use, but if you’re looking for a more concise version, check out the The Sabermetrics Library. Steve Slowinski of DRays Bay put it together with the idea of having a one-stop sabermetric glossary, and as Veronica Corningstone might say, he effing nailed it. Check out the wOBA page, for example. You’ve got a short description of the stat, some things to remember, and values for context. Super easy, right?

Whether you’re well versed in some of these metrics or not, make sure you bookmark that shizz. It’s an invaluable resource, born out of nothing more than passion for the game.

    Fun Fact: Steve Slowinski also has exquisite breasts.

    Nerds. They don’t know anything about the game and won’t until they actually get out a pick up a bat. They’re ruining baseball and taking the fun out of it!!!!

    Seriously though, that site is great. And I still don’t see how stats take the fun away from the game. I have never heard a reasonable explanation. I guess people who say that really don’t understand baseball and lack logic.
