I have decided to use SO% again, this time for velocity. It is a far from perfect way of calculating velocity but here goes:

99=23%
95=19%
90=14%
87=11%
82=6%
77=1%
This is to determine fastball speed. For other pitchs in a pitchers arsenal, if it doesnt affect the fastball speed, I will take 5 or 10 rating points off each subsequent pitch. i really need to look into this further before I make a final decision. If it aint a mess, it'll do ... Read More

There is something I have thought about for awhile now. It probably crosses my mind way too much, and to be dead honest, it is definitely ridiculous that I let this bother me at all, let alone as much as it actually does.

So, again, full disclosure: I am dumb for caring about this. Fully admit it.

That being said, as time goes on I can't help but notice trends, post to post, on OS and I feel like there are patterns as far which posts get likes and which posts don't. ... Read More

Like K/9 and BB/9, instead of using H/9 and HR/9 I use batting average against and HR% to determine this particular set of attributes.
In 1982 the MLB average of BA Against was .261 and the way my chart worked out was:
99=.212 (Nolan Ryan was tops at .213)
90=.230
80=.240
70=.250
60=.260 (Mike Witt falls right here, as average)
50=.280
40=.300
30=.320 (Lary Sorensen had a .322 BA Against)
20=.340
10=.370

Instead of actually using a pitchers K/9 and BB/9 numbers, I use the same stat as I use for Vision and Discipline: SO% and BB%
In '82 the SO% average was 13.2% The K/9 chart is:
99=24.9% (Mario Soto was tops with 26.5%)
90=22.2%
80=19.2%
70=16.2%
60=13.2% (Most average were Vida Blue, Rich Gale and Jerry Reuss)
50=10.2%
40=7.2% (You wont strike out many batsmen with Brewers starter Mike Caldwell and his 7.1 SO%)
30=5.2%
20=3.2% ... Read More

Now this is another one of those items where I went outside the box on calculating. The way I do it is the more you attempt to bunt the better rating I give you. And I have two charts, one for pitchers and one for everyone else.
This formula is also short and simple; SH Att./PA . The 1982 MLB average was .0128

For pitchers:
99=.2 (Jerry Reuss)
75=.108
50=.0128
25=.0064
0=0 For a starting pitcher Mike Scott of the Mets will be pretty useless ... Read More

I hope my method of calculating potential will be considered vastly greater than calculating speed but even it has its limitations. It probably would have been better to look at more than just WAR to determine potential but I wanted to KISS* it.

Catcher and relief pitchers will each have a separate formula from the starting pitchers and other everyday players. 1B probably should have its own formula too but after much deliberation I lumped 1B in with the rest of the infield and the ... Read More

This speed rating task may prove to be a house of cards that brings down the entire deck but I'm married to this way of doing it and hell or high tide, for better or worse, it is what it is. I will be using stolen bases to determine a partial of the speed rating, and then using position and age to flesh it out. I'm aware of all the pitfalls and discrepancy's this formula will produce but with the limited data to rely on, this will be the simplest way to accomplish the speed attribute. I wanted to ...

My way of determining clutch attribute ratings may have been too far out in leftfield for most folk but my durability and stamina ratings should move back closer to center of mainstream. Or maybe not.
First up is durability for everyday position players, id est, hitters. I don't know what average would be for 1982 but I guesstimate around 106 games? 8 players played in all 162 games including the likes of Steve Garvey, Pete Rose, Dwight Evans and Dale Murphy. Reggie Smith fell right on that ... Read More

There are a myriad of ways to determine clutch and if you asked ten people for a definition of clutch, you could probably get eleven different answers. Baseball Reference alone has at minimum 10 clutch measurements and maybe as many as 15. Some people are even saying that a "clutch" attribute doesnt exist.
A sampling of BR tallies:
RISP w/2 outs, tied games, within 1 run, within 2 runs,
late and close, which is PA's 7th inning and beyond, score tied or the batting team up 1 ... Read More

For Stealing I use SB%. The 1982 MLB SB% average was 66%.
My numbers are:
99=100%/\90=85%/\80=75%/\70=68%
66=66%/\60=60%
50=50%/\40=40%/\30=30%/\20=20%/\10=10%
With a minimum of 20 steals Joe Morgan had the highest SB% at 86%. Jose Cruz and Rafael Ramirez were at the average of 66%.
With a minimum 10 steals Rod Carew might have been the worst with a 37% with 10 SB's and 17 caught stealing, though Todd Cruz was even worse at 17% with 2 SB's and 10 CS. ... Read More
